Dates! An Anthology of Queer Historical Fiction (Volume 2)
Dates is an anthology of positive queer historical fiction, set throughout time and across the world. This is Volume 2!
Okay, friends. Pull up a chair. Really settle in there good. Let’s chit-chat a bit.
You might have noticed my posting a lot lately about volume 2 of Dates! Or maybe you haven’t, maybe you follow like 800 people that don’t know how queues work and my posts get totally washed away in the nonsense, but I’m just going to assume the former and go from there.
Dates! is an anthology of Queer Historical Fiction (over 260 pages!!), and y’all, it’s going to be AWESOME. There are tons of super talented people working on this book, and what I’ve seen of it has me soooo excited.
As someone who has a very large section of her bookshelf dedicated to (sometimes questionable quality) queer historical fiction novels, I can assure you that Dates! is most certainly not questionable quality, folks
(Unlike these photos I took with my phone, sorry guys…)
Let me just show you some beautiful examples from creators in Dates 1! (And, might I add, all of whom are returning for Dates 2).
Look at it my friends!! Beautiful!! I can confirm that the book is really high quality, the printing job is great, and the art is just gorgeous (also sturdy, can confirm, survived my cross-country move stuffed into the bottom of my suitcase without a scratch, definitely some nice binding there haha). And the best part is, when Dates 2 reaches its third tier stretch goal, they’ll be reprinting Dates 1 for anyone who missed it the first time around.
Jenna and I are making our comic writing debut working with Cat Parra on our comic “Reflections of a Glassmaker” (along with inks by Effie Lee). I’m so excited for this book guys, and I’m absolutely positive that you will love it.
