I just signed the contract for the publication of Weekend Girl with Ninestar Press! This news comes just a week or so after I received word that one of the editors was also interested in Far Patrol.
I am really happy that this novel will get published because it’s my first novel with a trans protagonist. My main character Ash is genderfluid and uses they/their pronouns. I’ve been wanting to publish a full-length novel with a trans protagonist for a while now, so it’s finally happening!
This novel has a completely different feeling from Far Patrol. Weekend Girl is meant to be mostly light-hearted, a romantic comedy for the trans community. Ash is a student at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. They meet their love interest Nolan in a rather unorthodox way, and the fun continues thereafter.
This is also one of the first characters I’ve developed who has a mental health diagnosis. Ash has anxiety, and sometimes some of the scenes will reflect that. Some of Ash’s decisions are also influenced by their anxiety as well.
I really enjoyed writing this story, and I’m actually writing a sequel to this one in the hopes that readers will continue to be interested! That sequel is called “Not Your Average Lady” and continues with Ash and Nolan on their journey of life.
Thanks for tuning in!
