Self-luck Tulk.

In look and even more so in self-made luck, Niki Tulk brings to mind riot grrrl original and Lambda Literary Award winner Michelle Tea. Tulk comes across as softer than Tea, whose wire-y, almost dispassionate prose shreds my serenity in the best way possible.

I look forward to comparing Tea’s work to Tulk’s upcoming debut, Shadows & Wings. She will publish her novel in October, having drummed up financing via Kickstarter. Ingenious!

Tulk blogs for SheWrites about the undertaking, discussing her experience with the agent-editor route and her choice to self-publish.

I highly recommend giving Tulk’s post a read. And a big congrats to Ms. Tulk for talking what could be a pioneering step in publishing. Keep an eye out for Shadows & Wings.
