Every year, the Farm Animal Rights Movement sponsors a Meatout day to, well, urge people to give up meat.
At least for a day.
Or, better yet, one day a week, a very popular trend known as “Meatout Mondays.”
There is ample evidence that cutting back on meat will improve your health.
As readers of this blog well know, our focus at Ashland Creek Press has been to publish books that raise awareness of animals and the environment.
We are proud to have published three novels so far that include strong vegan characters:
And we have more on the way.
What’s important to us about these books is that they’re character-driven stories, with characters that happen to be vegan. It’s time that veganism no longer be viewed as a fringe lifestyle but a normal lifestyle — and it’s time that our literature reflects this growing trend.
Which is a large part of why we’re here today.
PS: If you’re a writer that is working on an “ecolit” novel, we welcome submissions.
