Ceillie Simkiss is publishing her first novella Learning Curves today. It’s a sweet and fun f/f story about a plus size Puerto Rican lesbian and a panromantic asexual girl who form a relationship while trading college notes and studying together in the library.
Ceillie has written a wonderfully diverse story about two strong career-focused women who find love and companionship together, and I couldn’t miss the chance of having her here to share her inspirations and favorite lesfic, on our blog!
Q1: How does it feel to be publishing your first F/F novella?
Honestly, it’s a little terrifying, but I’ve seen a ton of support from my friends and online community. I’ve always heard that f/f doesn’t sell, but I’ve almost reached 100 preorders in the month that it’s been available, with many other promising to order once it’s available for real.
I think, given that this is the first book I’ve ever put out into the world, that this is a great start. Now I just have to wait until it publishes and hope that the readers love it as much as I do!
