This is a project I’ve been working on for seven years. My goal was to write plausible science fiction, without handwaving away things like the laws of physics (no FTL). It is in many ways an exploration of Arthur C Clarke’s third law, and sets out to explore both the near future disasters that may be facing us, and the long term possibilities that might grow out of overcoming those disasters.
In addition to the website and the Patreon, you can keep track of updates on Twitter and Tumblr. The main story will eventually be public on the website (there are public pages now on the Patreon, but everything is posted there first), and those pages will be broadcast to all the social media accounts, but Patreon is by far the best way to keep up with everything.
The first story, A Lon Beginning, is a kid-friendly (tested on kids as young as five) novella that works well as a chapter book/bedtime reading that adults enjoy as well.
While this is not a book specifically about LGBTQ+issues, the main character is a nonbinary child, and very few of the characters in the series are white.
