I feel bad. I have a good number of queer characters in my world. For various reasons, very few of them don't tell the POV characters about it... which means they don't exist yet. :(
Remarkable, this seems to be one of the common themes. Well, sooner or later, one will show.
There are a lot of frustrating points about how the first 5 books are coming out. Mainly because I wrote the Sand* series while waiting for Flight to get rejected by a publisher. And 2nd is still on the queue.
