There are a lot of exciting things going on at the start of a new year, but for me, this year’s exciting thing is a little different from usual: I can finally talk about the new project I’ve been invited to work on, a publishing company called Oktopus Ink.
Oktopus Ink will publish young adult and new adult science fiction and fantasy featuring diverse characters, especially diverse protagonists. The editors are especially looking for LGBT+ characters, characters of color, and characters who represent diversity of ability, though OI will also be interested in books with non-Western settings and representing diverse religious beliefs as well.
If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll probably know that diversity in entertainment is something I’m incredibly passionate about. I’m incredibly excited to be on the OI team, and I’m looking forward to the work we’ll publish.
