Cross-posted from the comic’s blog:
Hi guys! As some of you may know, Strange Horizons recently posted a critical piece on women SciFi novelists. The article addresses how women SciFi authors rarely get reviewed in the book community, and this reduces publicity and popularity for women authors. This article has led to a lot of attention/renewed attention for women SciFi authors who might have been overlooked.
I’d like to take this opportunity to remind you that I’m now one of those authors. And a reader just emailed me to let me know that Amazon is pushing advertising for Digital Divide today. If you haven’t yet bought a copy, please consider buying one from Amazon today. It’s a measly $5 and this could be a make-or-break day for the novel. Here is the Amazon (US) link again. Links to international Amazon sales sites are available at the Book page.
Thanks, guys. I never expected to get here, and I’m starting to wonder if I can get somewhere else.
(And support women SciFi authors in general, because jeezy-peet! Genitals don’t dictate who dreams of going to the stars.)
