First look at Istrouma, a novella set for fall 2016 release

As I prepare the final draft of trigger, I wanted to share the cover artwork to Istrouma, a novella I’ve been writing since last fall. Istrouma is a story about a Black trans girl named Zina who leaps through the systemic miseries of Baton Rouge, Louisiana despite personal tragedies in her life. During these obstacles, Zina recognizes her first and foremost responsibility of her and her small circle – to survive.

This project is currently on hiatus but I will devote my summer to crafting and continuing the narrative of this Southern trans character. By the fall, you will be able to read Istrouma.
