With Tom Doherty of TOR Books recently coming out in support of the so-called Sad Puppies, we at Local Hero Press feel it’s an appropriate time to clearly state our position. We support and encourage diversity in all forms among our authors and their content. We do not and will not discriminate against any authors based upon their gender identification, racial background, religious preference, country or planet of origin, belief system, sexual orientation, caste, disability or veteran status, or any other means by which certain groups intend to disenfranchise other groups. We only care about your writing. If we like it, and think it’s good enough for us to proudly put our name upon it as your publisher, then we are glad to have you with us.
