Request: Asexual Fairy Tales author needs publishing

Recommended Posts

kelico

We have a question/request from author, Elizabeth Hopkins (https://twitter.com/hidden_grove). She's wanting to post a book of Asexual Fairy Tales, and she's looking for a book publisher that specializes in ace books or one that would be really helpful and pro-asexual/lgbtq. Does anyone have any ideas/advice/help for her? : )

Hello. I have written a book of Asexual Fairy Tales with beautiful illustrations by my daughter, like this. I was hoping to crowdfund it through Unbound, because I thought that would be the best way to connect with the right readers, but that has fallen through. I canvassed opinion on Twitter before I wrote it, and people seemed to want it. But I don't know any other asexual people, and haven't even come out to everyone.

I don't know what is the best way to try and get it published and connect to the asexual community, to get the right sales and publicity. I could try to crowdfund it myself using my Patreon page since I have already made a video about it, or is there a publisher you know of that specialises in asexual books? I feel quite sad at the moment, and I'm afraid that other Asexuals won't like it because it's very much my personal perspective. But I really want to get it out there because it's special to me and because people want representation.

Of those, Less Than Three Press has a strong line of Asexual/Aromantic books and tends to carry a lot of fairy tale type stories. This would probably be your best bet to get an anthology published: https://www.lessthanthreepress.com/submissions/

 

Another way would be to publish the book through Smashwords - which is self-publishing, but then you don't have to go through the hassle of submissions and such:

Thanks for the interest and suggestions, everyone. I am now planning to go through a self-publishing package, using Kickstarter to fund it. But these suggestions are great, because I also have a historical fantasy trilogy about a castrato and a bird charmer, that keeps drawing a blank in the mainstream. It is in many ways an asexual love story, and it may be that I will have to go to a niche publisher with that one. So, thanks again!
