Susan Edwards was editor at Ellora's Cave in 2016 when Ellora's Cave expressed interest in publishing this book, at this time with the working title The Story of Q: A GenderQueer Tale.

She read the manuscript and was working with me when Ellora's Cave folded.

My publicist John Sherman contacted her and solicited whatever comments she might be willing to provide for publicity and promotional purposes, and this was what she wrote in response to that.
