TJ Klune



When TJ Klune was eight, he picked up a pen and paper and began to write his first story (which turned out to be his own sweeping epic version of the video game Super Metroid--he didn't think the game ended very well and wanted to offer his own take on it. He never heard back from the video game company, much to his chagrin). Now, over two decades later, the cast of characters in his head have only gotten louder. But that's okay, because he's recently become a full-time writer and can give them the time they deserve. Since being published, TJ has won the Lambda Literary Award for Best Gay Romance, fought off three lions that threatened to attack him and his village, and was chosen by Amazon as having written one of the best GLBT books of 2011.

Blood Debts (2023)
(Blood Debts, book 1)
Terry J Benton-Walker
"Benton-Walker has crafted a narrative that moves as swiftly and, at times, as devastatingly as a forest fire. Blood Debts sings with hope and barely disguised rage. Fantastic from start to finish."
thumb
The One True Me and You (2022)
Remi K England
"The One True Me and You is a breezy, snappy story about fandom, friendships, and being true to yourself, even if that might be a little scary. This story is lovingly queer, and shows the differences that set us apart should be celebrated rather than denigrated. England writes with heart and I, for one, can't wait to see what they do next."
thumb
Lakelore (2022)
Anna-Marie McLemore
"An absolute knockout. McLemore has created a jar full of glitter that I wish I could read again for the first time...One of the most important pieces of queer fiction I've ever had the pleasure to read."
