Julia’s first full-length foray into fiction, 99 Erics: a Kat Cataclysm faux novel (Switch Hitter Press, 2020), is the winner of the Publishing Triangle’s 2021 Edmund White Award for Debut Fiction, and an Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) 2021 silver medalist in LGBT+ Fiction! The book is available from all the usual online retailers, and can be ordered from your local brick and mortar bookstore. If you wanna test read, you can download the first 5 chapters for FREE, plus read other excerpts and reviews, watch virtual book readings, and more, via the 99 Erics webpage!
For a limited time, you can purchase a signed copy of 99 Erics and/or Julia’s most recent nonfiction book Outspoken: A Decade of Transgender Activism and Trans Feminism. I am happy to make it out to someone!
