Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week: New WIP and Aro Book List

Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week goes from February 19th to February 25th, so what better time to announce my new project?

I’m currently working on a shot story titled “By Your Side”.

It’s about a bisexual woman who just got out of a bad relationship and an aromantic man who is her friend and roommate. I can’t say much more about it yet, but the story will have a discussion about queerplatonic relationships and a lot of physical affection!

I hope I’ll be able to share more information about it soon.

To celebrate Aromantic Spectrum Awareness Week I also wanted to share a list of 114 books with aromantic representation (these books include all kind of aro experiences from the spectrum, including aromantic asexual). Keep in mind that I haven’t read most of them, so I can’t personally recommend them. These are all the books I could find:
