Welcome to episode nine of Fiction Forward! This week, author Caleb Roehrig (pronounced like RARE-ig) joins us to chat about LGBT+ in YA fiction, his new book White Rabbit, and how having your shit together is a lie.
Welcome to Fiction Forward episode #8, a short book news roundup!
Claire Kann, author of Let’s Talk About Love, is here to chat about representation and her main character, Alice: A biromantic asexual black woman dealing with her “summer of struggle,” as Kann puts it.
Welcome to Fiction Forward, episode 6. In this episode Jackie and Kelly talk a whole bunch about book publishing in general, plus the authors and books they’ll be featuring on upcoming episodes! Enjoy this short episode, and look forward to author Claire Kann in our next one!
Today Jackie and Kelly talk about Before She Ignites, a YA fantasy by Jodi Meadows. While all of the characters are POC, Meadows is actually white. This could go terribly, terribly wrong. Or… maybe not?
We talk about the YA standalone “Carry On” by Rainbow Rowell. It’s sort of Harry Potter, but not, and it has some lovely LGBT representation. Let’s dig in.
Join Jackie, Kelly and guest Daphnee as they laugh, yell and discuss ‘The Black Witch.’
Please make it stop. It being Kelly and Jackie dramatically reading painfully bad book excerpts. Tune in for more & a preview of next week’s episode!
