Why make your book available for free?
Publishing this book isn’t just about the money. (Which is good, because I don’t expect to make a whole lot.) Rather, it’s about sharing my stories and making sure that every single person who wants to read this book is able to. I remember how alone I felt growing up, and how few stories I found that contained people “like me.” I want to do as much as I can to lessen that experience for others, and to create as wide a sense of trans community as I can. Making this book available online for free is part of my effort to do so.
