I have to admit that I’m pretty sure I’m on the ACE spectrum personally, falling closely along the lines of demisexual, and I didn’t even realize that there were others like me until I read about it in a book. That’s what I think fiction does for us – it opens up windows for those who may be feeling lost or alone, helping us to find similarities and celebrate our differences.
How many of us have discovered aspects of ourselves through books? This is one reason why I write, to help others just as I have been helped.
The sequel for Rising from Ash will happen, just not until next year unfortunately. But I’ll be sure it’s worth the wait.
