Non-Binary Authors You Need to Be Reading (Updated!)

Non-Binary AuthorsJust over a year ago, I posted the original Non-Binary Authors You Need to be Reading post that was a really big hit. I’m glad it was, because I’m always looking for more non-binary authors to read. Knowing that others are is really good to hear!

So, this post is an updated version of the first. You can still get to the first one, but this one will have updated information on the authors, as well as authors added that I either missed, or weren’t out at the time of the first post.
