Red Sister, reader art!

Red Sister has its first reader art! These from Mayticks.

There's no sex in Red Sister, and no romance. There are, however, a lot of relationships, and a small number of those are gay. I'm very glad when readers find this well portrayed, and are pleased to see diversity/representation etc. But if you go into the book with your head filled with whatever images the phrase "lesbian nuns" conjures up for you ... you may be disappointed.

What I hope the book does is present a small number of gay characters in an understated and indirect manner that doesn't make a big deal of the fact.
