my "after pornified" book has a publisher

Finally: I have a publisher for my book, After Pornified: How Women Are Transforming Pornography & Why It Really Matters. The publisher is Zer0 Books, a UK-based publisher with a transcontinental focus: half of its authors are based in the US. I'm really excited to be joining their team of authors whose discourse is "intellectual without being academic, popular without being populist." Zer0 Books is the Culture, Society, and Politics imprint of John Hunt Publishing, which has several other special focus imprints in addition to their General Topics imprint O-Books.

I'll be busy in the weeks to come with finals edits, additions, and formatting, so I might not be quite as active online. But I won't go away either. Stay tuned!

Update: The Guardian ran a feature on Zer0 Books shortly after I posted the above, describing Zer0 Books as "One of the most exciting radical presses at the moment. ... Zer0 titles are commissioned, edited and published quickly – and that energy and velocity carries through to the writing itself. Zer0 writers share an ability to write passionately, avoiding the clunky prose of academia and generating new lines of inquiry rather than just regurgitating critical clich├ęs." This feels like a good fit to me.
