When we began creating this website we initially decided not to include self published books or books from indie presses. However, we realized that this website would not be as comprehensive as it could be without these books. Transphobia, aphobia, racism, biphobia, ableism and more are all present in the major publishing industry in regards to what stories are being told, who gets to tell them and how accurate they represent marginalized identities. To that end, if you have a recommendation for a novel that is self-published or from an indie press, please email us. We will strongly consider all submissions, especially those that are #ownvoices and those that add to areas where there are is a clear dearth in representation.
