It’s the cusp of a new decade (okay, I realize not exactly, but most people see it that way). It’s been quite a year.
It’s been rocky in the book world lately, and indeed in the world at large. We’re all feeling the strain of recent events, whether in the physical environment, the political sphere, or our workplace.
For me, books have always been my happy place. Sometimes, we just need to escape to somewhere else for a while. We need to know that the good guys will defeat the evil forces. We want to be reassured that love is true and lasting. Sometimes, we need to feel seen and understood by the characters and situations.
It can be hard for writers to feel inspired, given all the pain and hardship in real life. But we keep trucking, keep trying, keep writing, wanting to be a bright spot in a dark world.
This makes it all the more important that we celebrate small victories. We need to remember where we came from and where we’re going as the calendar changes over. Here’s a look back and a sneak peek ahead for us here at Supposed Crimes:
We’re fairly small compared to many LGBTQ+ publishers. But we’ve still brought some excellent content. You can see a sampling here.
Earlier this month, we scored big at the Rainbow Awards. Read a recap here.
And in 2020, we have a full list of new books that will be available! See them here.
I can’t say what else the new year will bring. All I can tell you is that there will still be books to take you to new places and introduce you to new people. Happy reading!
