Canon femslash and worker’s rights!

Queen Shulamit and Chef Aviva from The Second Mango are back for another adventure; in Climbing the Date Palm they’re charged with the rescue of a foreign prince’s labor activist boyfriend, while also trying to figure out how to become moms to an heir.

    Plus, just a plain ol’ good story that’s a lot of fun! That’s what the people who took my recommendation think anyway. I don’t know how you feel about your book being defined as “fun” (although I would say it’s a compliment-so much YA takes itself way too seriously), but here we are.

    (True fact: I’m still trying to get your book. Mom’s reader is incompatible or something).

      Oh, thank you, I definitely want my readers to have fun with it! Honestly, I write ice cream. Even when it’s heavy, it’s just heavy ice cream, right? 😛 Like when my local homemade ice cream parlor serves up flavors like Guinness and Maple Bacon? I’ve never written a lover’s tiff, even. (I’m so glad your friends liked it, and thanks for the signal boosting, as always! It is appreciated.)

      Anything I can do to help with your own reading experience? The Prizm package should have included Kindle, Nook, pdf, and html formats. Was something missing from your package?
