In the years that followed her suicide I wrote four novels with transgender people as main characters. Not surprising, I was unable to sell them. However, these folks are people, just like everybody else, so I was determined to tell some stories for them. The first I self-published was “A Simple Twist of Fate.” Some of you may have read it. Eventually I hope to publish all four. Here is the second of four for your enjoyment. I promise a happy ending.
This book also has another story to it. It began with a challenge from another writer. Several standard story opening lines were thrown into a jar. The idea was to use the line and build a novel off it. Seela is the only novel completed from that writer's challenge. I believe there were seven of us.
I've been told that publishing these stories is a terrible risk. What do you think? Am I risking my bread and butter?
