Wow! The cover of my book Redefining Realness, available for pre-order now. Here’s 7 easy ways you can support my baby!
1. Pre-order your copy on Amazon, B&N or iBooks. Pre-order sales are vital to a first-time author like me. It shows my publisher and major booksellers that there are readers who believe in Redefining Realness (the first popular press-backed books about the experiences of a young trans woman of color) and its empowering message of authenticity, self-determination and love.
2. One of my all-time favorite gifts is a good story. Recommend Redefining Realness and/or pre-order a copy of the book for someone you know will read it and love it. Storysharing is the gift the continues to give.
