Aromantic Resources

Hello, friends!

I recently released Mrs. Mix Up, which features a demiromantic lesbian main character, Molly. As you likely know, I am not aromantic. I can fall in love at the drop of a hat and fall out of love just as quickly. I have also written two other stories with aromantic characters as Ceillie Simkiss – An Unexpected Invitation and Pack Ties.

Because I was writing outside of my experience and because many people are not as informed as they could be on what aromanticism is, I wanted to offer some resources and other people that you can read aromantic stories from. This list is available within the text of Mrs. Mix Up, but I wanted to offer it in another format in order to make it easier to access for anyone who wanted it.
