Funny I found this when I’m supposed to work :))
We have a month to prepare for asexuality awareness week (it starts on the 26th of October I think) so between now and then I’ll be looking for all sorts of new ace media which hasn’t previously been on the blog to make sure the list is nice and long. If you feel like contributing by submitting a post (just let us know its for ace week) or by rec’ing something (just reblog this or send us a message with your rec) feel free and if it’s non-anon and a good rec we haven’t found ourselves we’ll credit you within the list.
Wings of Destruction is a novel featuring an asexual character, it comes out October 14th
"never use this word because it’s common, instead use all of these things that i’ll call synonyms even though they carry different connotations and will change the meaning of your dialogue if you use them" — very bad and unfortunately very common writing advice
Lukos Heat is a fantasy M/M story by Megan Derr. Preorder your copy by 10/21 to save 15% off the cover price and earn reward points toward your next orders!
Najlah is on the hunt for the traitorous coward who attempted to assassinate the king and nearly killed Najlah’s brother in the process. But the hunt has taken his team deep into the Shide, the treacherous, freezing mountains controlled by the mysterious Lukos, feral wolf shifters who do not tolerate trespassers.
When the Lukos come upon them, Najlah is reluctantly intrigued. The Lukos, especially the one called Barkus, are nothing like the soft humans he spends most of his time around. They thrive in the brutal cold the way he thrives in volcanic fire. For the first time, it feels like Najlah may have found someone who can equal the fierceness of dragons, and see them as more than demons.
But if he hopes to explore the bond forming with the Lukos, he must first survive the enemy—and the Shide.

Preordered this back in… August? ^__^; The new preorder system is both a blessing and a curse - I’ve got a pretty neat line-up of things I bought in one go that will become available one after the other, but on the other hand somehow it makes the wait feel even longer >_>
There are in fact two sequels planned for this, to answer tags I’ve seen :3 Mage Burn and Dragon Fire are the working titles.
Sleep Hollow #1 BOOM! Exclusive Cover
- what’s the policy on swearing? do they allow stories with lots of cursing
- do they want a query letter or like do you just…send them your thing because the site does not say ‘send query letter’ it just says ‘attach your shit and title the e-mail thusly’
- do they want anything in the email body? like ‘here is my story hope you like it?’ or ‘this story is about X and Y and Z hope you like it?’
- who do I send serial submissions to? it says who to send questions about the serial submissions to, but not…who to submit an actual story to
- do you start off with your real name on everything and then just ask to be published under a penname if your thing is accepted?
If you do not mind the publisher answering :3
*We swear a lot, you’re good there. I tend to be overzealous enough Sam has to delete a few of my fucks, cause editors are no fun.
*No query letter required. We like a blurb, but we’ve gotten everything from seriously professional to “So I don’t know what to say, but this is a story about two nerds who can’t communicate properly” and we’re down with either of those
*Serial submissions are sent the same way as general submissions, just let us know you want it specifically for serial
*You can stick to your penname for submissions, we don’t need a real name until papers have to get signed. Most include both in submissions, but it’s not strictly necessary.
Sorry for any confusion, hope that helps!
I think every writer/artist has that one story/drawing that gets completely skipped over, and they’d never say it aloud, but inside they’re like
'fuck all y'all, that's one of the best things I've done'
plus one story/drawing that everyone loves
'really? that one?’
