We love the enthusiasm readers have for the Read Harder Challenge. And we want to help you meet your challenge goals, so we’re providing lists for some of the tasks that you may find more difficult.

Today’s task is to read a book in which a character of color goes on a spiritual journey, which was suggested for the challenge by author Daniel José Older.

For the purposes of the challenge, I decided to think broadly (but not too broadly) about spiritual journeys. A spiritual journey isn’t just any kind of journey. They don’t have to be explicitly religious in nature, but they can be. They might involve going to a holy site or journeying to some sort of special revelation. I tried to think about journeys that get people beyond just the physical world. I also stuck to books that involve actually going somewhere, even if it wasn’t far.

if pansexuals are dragons and transwomen are mermaids, then bisexuals are selkies. When we’re on land, we’re still selkies. When we’re in the water as seals we’re still selkies. We’re never humans and we’re never seals. We’re always just selkies.

I feel like this a great opportunity to remind people that a bi woman wrote a story about selkies

And from our interview with bi author Betsy Cornwell:

I think selkies are a salient metaphor for a lot of things–bisexuality is definitely one of them! More generally, I think selkies represent the fluidity of sexuality. They are inherently shapeshifters, moving from one form to another, and the people they love do the same. The selkie stories are also an interesting way for me to approach body image in my writing. How does anyone learn to be comfortable with the skin they’re in–and how is that magnified when you have more than one? But then, sexuality and body image overlap in a lot of ways in my head, so it makes sense that I’d see selkies as an intersection of those issues, too.

Betsy Cornwell is such a sweet lady. And Tides is such a nice book. As is her second book Mechanica. A sort of steampunky retelling of Cinderella with a strong and capable Cinderella who does not settle for some boring ol hetero prince- saviour bullshit. Read both! Right now! While I’m eagerly awaiting Venturess, the sequel to Mechanica.

If you are gonna do some Judo… do it in style! 

When I say that I’m a woman who wants it all, I don’t mean I want a career and a family, I mean I want to wear fabulous dresses and kick ass while doing so.
