May we collectively breathe in the stardust she has left behind for luck, for strength, for fortitude and courage.
May we take comfort in the shade of her shadow, the vast mountainous legacy marking how she moved worlds.

If you missed it the last half dozen times we've talked it up, #PitMasto is going to be a chance for authors with finished novel manuscripts and #wip to practice pitching their stories and (if we can get a few more publishers and/or agents participating) maybe get their stories picked up.

Details here: cuilpress.com/pitmasto/

Please boost & share, especially if you know any active #books hashtags we haven't used in previous #pitmasto toots.

We're looking forward to seeing everyone's pitches!

EVERFAIR by Nisi Shawl is like a novel par excellence. People can't get into it because it is multiple POV (13 viewpoint charas, I counted) and like a series of short stories but that's really the best way of doing a truly multicultural novel--it has to be polyvocal; single viewpoints will fall short.
