Time Travel with Kosoko Jackson and A.C. Merkel

Welcome to the Indie Writer Podcast where we talk about all things writing and indie publishing. Today Cari and Jacqui are joined by authors Kosoko Jackson and A.C. Merkel to talk about TIME TRAVEL!

A.C. Merkel is an author, musician, and digital artist. What if you could watch history unfold? Take a ride on the Orient Express? Rock out at CBGB in its heyday? Go dancing in post prohibition Chicago? Pick berries under billions of pure starlit pinpoints in 1540s France? That is the premise of his debut urban fantasy.

Kosoko Jackson is a digital media specialist, focusing on digital storytelling, email, social and SMS marketing, and a freelance political journalist. Occasionally, his personal essays and short stories have been featured on Medium, Thought Catalog, The Advocate, and some literary magazines. When not writing YA novels that champion holistic representation of black queer youth across genres, he can be found obsessing over movies, drinking his (umpteenth) London Fog, or spending far too much time on Twitter. His YA debut, YESTERDAY IS HISTORY, will come out in 2021, published by SourceBooks Fire and his adult #OwnVoices queer Romcom, I’M SO (NOT) OVER YOU will come out in 2022, by Berkley Romance.
