Are white people just getting more bold with their "racism" or is something else behind the rise of "White Identitarianism"?

What do you think? Is the traditional publishing industry dying? Should more authors go the route of self-publishing to avoid social justice requirements or do you think the publishing industry will recover and start publishing books regardless of this vicious cycle of social justice abuse?

I don't write bad book reviews, I write honest book reviews, lmao.

In the writing community, it's controversial to write bad book reviews. What do you think about writing them, reading them, and the idea this is drama?

The moral clause is a new portion being added into publishing deals. Make sure to read your contracts carefully before agreeing to anything.

How do you feel about the moral clause? Would you sign and agree to it in order to get published or would you look for another way? Let me know in the comments below!

Asian immigrant author Amélie Wen Zhao recently postponed her book's publication because of Twitter backlash from advanced readers. They claimed her book was anti-black after she wrote a new tale of the East European Mythology of Anastasia and infused it with ideas/her experience of human trafficking and slavery while also having a "bronze" ex-slave die. That's apparently enough to be anti-black.

The YA industry is the most toxic I've ever seen. What are your thoughts?

Welcome to the Book Club! Just Reading* is about sharing books, stories, and authors to help you read more without ever having to turn the page! Maybe this'll help you find new authors or maybe you'll make suggestions and help me find new authors!

Today I'm reading the first half of George Saunder's short story The 400-Pound CEO from his collection CivilWarland in Bad Decline.

What do you like about writing? What don't you like? I find reading good and bad writers helps me in my skill building as an author. So let me know what you think! And especially let me know once we make it to the end.

Ian Kirkpatrick, creative writer for fiction and nonfiction, writes novels, short stories, and cultural critique pieces on her website "Bold Words." She received a Bachelors Degree in Theater from The University of Alaska Anchorage in 2013 and a Masters of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of Tampa in 2016.

As a conservative in a left-leaning industry, it can be pretty maddening to quietly say nothing and nod your head just to get along. It also doesn’t do anything to maintain moral values. She started this blog to speak back, give an alternative voice in writing, and hopefully make some kind of difference. She’s an American, a constitutionalist, and an advocate for free speech.

She enjoys writing fiction and loves exploring the world and its absurdities through the creation of fiction. She has a darker sense of humor and a penchant for truth. She’s doing the best she can to figure out the world around her while.

She has written one novel and is currently seeking representation and publication for it. She has started working on her second novel and has a handful of short stories. She looks forward to writing more but looks way more forward to the day she can write as her day job. ?

And hopefully, you’ll get to read some of that in the near future. We can only hope at this point.
