Hello, a brief note saying any descriptions of my forthcoming novel WAGON WITCH’S APPRENTICE using the term “gypsy” are not condoned by the author herself. I am actively working against its use, in what limited capacity I have in dictating how other people talk about my work. For those who do not know, it’s a racial slur against the Romani. I purposefully refer to the travelling people in my novel as travellers for this reason.
My publisher and agent have been notified that this is not something I will tolerate in the circles where I have control.
