Today I am beyond excited to announce that The Private Life of Jane Maxwell has been chosen as F-BOM’s Feminist Book of the Month for July/August 2019!
F-BOM is a book subscription service founded in 2016 by Lindsay Taveren and Cecelia Isaac, with a goal of boosting the voices of self-published women writing under the science fiction/fantasy umbrella. I first discovered their company sometime last year, and immediately knew I wanted to work with them. Their values of inclusiveness, intersectionality, and raising up voices that might otherwise get overlooked speaks to me on a deeply personal level. Add to that the fact that they correctly include trans women in their definition of womanhood? There was no way I was going to pass this opportunity up.
So what does this mean for you?
Well, for starters, I’ve put together the first-ever SPECIAL EDITION of The Private Life of Jane Maxwell. This is an exclusive release that will only be available through F-BOM. In addition to the book you may already know and love, this edition will include a collectible cover, and a variety of bonus materials that you won’t find anywhere else. Each paperback also comes with a signed bookplate—the first time I have ever made bookplates available to the general public. In addition, when you sign up for their service, you gain access to their member portal, where I’ll be popping in all month to answer Q & As, sit for video interviews, and generally hang out. It’s basically an all-access, behind-the-scenes pass to the world of the Heroes of Hope.
F-BOM offers two subscription tiers. The first one is a paperback subscription, currently set at $8/month (billed quarterly), and the second is an ebook-only option at $5/month. Both options contain the same exclusive bonus content, and both options provide access to the forums.
Here’s a breakdown of everything you’ll be getting, if you purchase this Special Edition:
- F-BOM Exclusive Cover (seen above)
- Signed bookplate (paperback only)
- All-new author preface
- Character dossiers of each member of the Heroes of Hope
- An interview with Jane Maxwell, as it “appeared” in the Grand City Times
I had so much fun putting this special edition together, and I hope that you love this it as much as I do. Please tell your friends, and go out and buy a copy today, knowing that you’re supporting not only me, but this passionate and visionary company!
Thank you all so much for your support!
