I’ve contacted as many LGBT activists and organizations as I could think of to try to get some endorsements for my book, and now I’m just waiting on their responses. I got this very nice response from “the Mackelmore Team”:
The print may be too small here to read, but it says “Thank you so much for writing in to us. Your novel is great. It is a great lesson on acceptance and equality. The boys are away on tour right now, but I will set aside your work so they can read it. – The Mackelmore Team”.
What a sweet response! I always figured, if nothing else, that I would get some interesting responses even if they were all “no”. I guess, technically, this was a “maybe”.
The next step for Queen Henry is the cover. I’ve already been in contact with a few designers, and it’s exciting to think about what the cover might look like! I’m also working on some articles on what I learn about cover design for WannabePride so that other authors can learn, too.
