Citizens of LLAG I have a HUGE SECRET that I’ve kept from you for TWO MONTHS!
I’ve been in contact with an AMAZING WOMAN OF COLOR writer to present her latest project:
Welcome to the universe of Across the Realm!
Created by Isobel Mitton, an award-winning, Black-Canadian writer,Across the Realm is an immersive sci-fi book series set 600 years into the future where two worlds and ideologies collide: The North, a racially segregated land where Black, Asians and Caucasians live apart, and The South, a society where people of all backgrounds live and love together.
Why LLAG is supporting this: This is POC EVERYTHING!!!
Isobel is a Black woman, the artists creating the artwork are POC, and the entire storyline centers around POC characters! You have Korean commanders, Black high priests, and strong, kick-ass female protagonists.
The world of Across the Realm is vivid and magical and DIVERSE AS FUCK, and it reminds me of a POC Star Trek or a POC Star Wars. And if we support it, who knows? Maybe they’ll turn this into a screenplay the same way they turned Isobel’s previous work into screenplays. Can you imagine how awesome that would be?! On top of that, the series is ongoing so you’ll be able to read more into the galaxy, find more artwork AND they’re making a manga!
PLEASE check out the Across the Realm website, read the character bios, and purchase the first book. It’s only $10 which costs less than a bagel from Whole Foods lol: http://www.acrosstherealm.com/
THIS IS IMPORTANT! We MUST support POC writers and artists!
