Mefi's own headspace debuts at #1! February 27, 2018 6:16 PM   Subscribe

Our very own headspace has a new book out that was #1 in the Teen & Young Adult Gay & Lesbian Fiction category on Amazon.

I have to admit bias, she's my stepdaughter and I couldn't be prouder of her.

This is amazing and looks awesome and I honestly believe that writing inclusive and affirming material for children and teens is some of the most important work out there. So congratulations and thank you!

It's been years since I've been a teen but I'm gonna buy it and you can't stop me.

Seriously, it looks great. Congratulations, headspace!

This looks fantastic! And it's good timing for me — I've been looking for more queer short stories to read.

Congratulations, headspace.

Nice! I’ve seen a lot of raves about it on tumblr today; I’m delighted to find out there’s a MeFi connection!

Awesome!!! I look forward to the inevitable movie staring Dove Cameron and Harry Styles (seriously, I'll be first in line).

Why, when you scroll down the Amazon page for the book to "More about the author," do they show us a man named Scott Tracey?

Congratulations headspace (and pjern)!

I imagine it's a bit of Amazonian automation weirdness; Scott is the last-named of the 17 authors in the anthology.

Hooray! That's fantastic.

Hell yeah! Congrats!

I have added it to my library book queue!

That's great news -- huzzah, headspace! Thanks for sharing, pjern.

And that "About the Author" bio is quite something. Are there any autobiographical pieces out there that go into any of those interesting experiences (such as dodging trains, hitchhiking from Montana to California, or making paper for fun)? If not, perhaps they could be topics for future projects...

Woot woot! Way to o, headspace!
