Preorder "#Trans" for March 3rd Release!

I am so excited to announce that #Trans is up for pre-order on Smashwords and Amazon.com from today!

#Trans is an essay collection featuring the works of twenty transgender and nonbinary writers as they share their experiences with online communities, video games, and dating apps--among other technologies. Each author's experience of their identity breaks away from the typical transgender narrative that is predominantly hung up on surgery and medical intervention. While that aspect is still a part of the story for some of these writers, surgery has never been the sole inspiration which pushes these writers forward. 

Whether it was the love of a particular movie, the desire to share a feeling on social media, or a song they couldn't get out of their heads, these twenty writers' experiences of their identity have been shaped by media, technology, and the internet. And now, #Trans is ready to share with all of you.

I could not be more proud to be in such an incredible anthology, talking about what #trans means to me, through words that use the same root. This is put together by one of the most hardworking people I know, Eve Deshane, and deserves all of the attention!
