Money quote:

Quote

Ehiru, a character from The Killing Moon, is asexual, and I don’t think I explored that well. If I were writing it now, I would have made him more clearly ace. I figured this out by reading Tumblr. I am on Tumblr quietly — I have a pseudonym, and nobody knows who I am. Because lots of young people hang out there and talk about identity and the way our society works, it’s basically a media-criticism lab. It’s an interesting place to talk about identity, and I did not understand until I saw these conversations that asexuality was an identity. I thought about it as a broken sexuality. My story reflected my lack of understanding of how that worked.

I've read N.K. Jemisin's most famous serie and really liked it, and your quote just makes me want to read more of her work! Thank you for sharing @Homer :)

Uuuh really? That's awesome! I read the first in the Broken Earth trilogy a while back and am excited for more books by that author. This news make me even more so.
