Happy Book Birthday to LUNAV!

My smol lesbian enemies-to-lovers fairie tale bby came out (punnnnn) one year ago today.

If you’re a young queer aspiring author and you think you’ll never get to hold your book baby in your favorite bookstore for your book launch party, I promise you: keep at it and you will.

The world needs your words!

Keep writing, and keep being you <3

^^ Even if being you means being this much of an absolute dork.

My Launch Event is Finally Here!!!

On Thursday, March 22nd from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, we will have a literary celebration – complete with snacks and drinks (and, I’ve been told, some glitter!) – at Books of Wonder in NYC, the same children’s bookstore where I proposed to my lovely fiancée!

LUNAV cover: two young Black women's faces (the boyish woman looking down and away, Sadie, is on the left; the femmey woman looking directly at the viewer, Evelyn, is on the right) are studded with stars, just above the title (LUNAV) and author's name (Jenn Polish), with stars also glowing all around a dragon tree named Jorbam.

I will be in conversation with my favorite writer and friend Marcos S. Gonsalez, who’s represented by Lauren Abramo, VP of Dystel, Goderich & Bourret literary agency.

Come for the conversation (and noms) and leave as the first people to read LUNAV: it doesn’t come out until March 26th, so those in attendance will be the first to crack open the pages of Sadie’s dragon-filled world!

Another bonus: with every purchase of LUNAV, attendees will receive a free digital copy of LOST BOY, FOUND BOY, my queer sci-fi retelling of Peter Pan!
