Lee (Sidekick Squad series, Lambda Literary Award finalist), Jude Sierra (Kirkus Reviews annual Best Books list for Idlewild), and Julian Winters (Amazon #1 seller, LGBTQ-YA for Running With Lions) discuss how working with a small press helped them focus on gender, sexual, and racial identity as well as mental illness representation in their novels.
