So I've noticed some self-promotion in the discussions, which is great! So I figured it might be helpful to create a new topic exclusively for that.

Promote your projects, services, websites...really whatever you want!
Let's support each other however we can :)

That's amazing! If you'd like, I could promote either of these on VBC's Instagram :)

If anyone is in the Long Island (or NYC area), there are a few events coming up this holiday season:

NOVEMBER 24: Community Solidarity is hosting the Vegan Thanksgiving Bonanza at the Hempstead LIRR (so it's easy to access if you're coming from NYC). My husband and I are gonna try to go.
- Here's some info from the site: "we're going to be sharing over 100,000 pounds of vegetarian Thanksgiving groceries, clothing and books - and we'll also be dishing up a gourmet vegan feast made up of dozens of delicious appetizers, entrees, desserts, and beverages."
- Sign up to volunteer here:

DECEMBER 1: Annual Hope-Full Vegan-Giving at the Willow Cafe in Hewlett, NY
- The Willow Cafe is maybe a five-minute walk from the Hewlett LIRR so again easy to access if you're coming from the city. It's also right by Trader Joe's, which is a win-win if you ask me.
- This is actually really local to me, so it's another one I'll try to get to.
- It's $50 per person, and you get a WHOLE Thanksgiving meal:
- The Willow Cafe just opened in September. Not only is it all vegan, but it uses environmentally-friendly plates, utensils, etc. I really love it! (and if you'd like to hear more about it, I wrote a blog post as part of my LI Vegan Adventures series lol:

Community Solidarity does weekly food drives on LI and in (if I remember correctly) Brooklyn, so if that's something you're interested in, I'd recommend that as well!

Okay, plot twist: looks like Hope-Full Vegan-Giving is now cancelled, I think. Have yet to see something from the Willow Cafe, but someone associated with the event said it was canceled yesterday in their IG story. It's all very weird, BUT I still highly recommend checking out the Willow Cafe if you're in the area.

Dragana Dekic (dragana_vucic_dekic) | 4 comments Dear all,
I am looking for reviewers for my new vegan children's book 'The Donkey Doctor'. 🐴 🏥
'The Donkey Doctor' is a touching and encouraging story about the difficult life of a donkey on an island. One day, a boy who has a special connection to animals comes to visit the island with his parents. In the crowd of tourists who take photos with tired donkeys and ride them in the unbearable heat, he shows the donkey compassion and promises to return to the island one day to help. The boy kept his promise. ❤️
FREE LINK (Nov 22nd & 23rd):
The Donkey Doctor
Please follow the link by country. Enjoy the story and thank you for your interest and for taking the time to leave an honest review.

Been meaning to post this here for a while but kept forgetting lol but if anyone is interested, I have a blog where I try to post weekly!

I try to only post vegan-related things.

It also serves as my portfolio, so if you know of any (ideally vegan/cruelty-free/animal-related) brands/businesses/organizations in need of a writer, let me know!

This isn't a promotion for me but for my husband:

With the COVID-19 situation, my husband has lost his main source of income, so he has started taking on freelance projects. He's an audio wizard with years of experience in radio and a passion for podcasts.

Here's some of what he can do:
Create original music for your podcast (or Youtube channel and the like): He's very versatile and can produce in many different styles and tailor the music to your wants and needs.
Edit your podcast: this includes noise reduction, removal of unwanted noises, processing EQ/compression/limiting, editing in intro/outro/clips and music when desired.
Produce your imaging: intro, outro, bumpers, promos, etc. He can perform voice overs for these if desired.

If you or anyone you know would be in need of anything like this, you can check out his website, Multitrack Minds for more info, including contact information and samples of his work. You can also check out some of the music he makes for his project, Wrestling Under Cover, where he reimagines wrestling themes in different styles/genres.

Lisa Whalen (lisairishwhalen) | 1 comments I've only been vegan for about a year, thanks in large part to Veestro because I'm incredibly lazy and uninterested when it comes to food prep. I have a book related to affection for animals that will be coming out on March 2, 2021. It's called Stable Weight: A Memoir of Hunger, Horses, and Hope. It's listed here in Goodreads but won't be available until the release date. Feel free to contact me with any questions about it. And I'd love to get some reviews from anyone who is interested.

Cool! I can make a post about your book on our social pages when we get a little closer to the release date if you'd like?

Dayton | 1 comments Hi all! I'm the host of an environmental justice and animal rights-themed books podcast, Storytelling Animals:

Each episode, I interview an author of new or recent nonfiction or fiction about their work and how to build better relationships with each other and our fellow creatures--the very first episode with Emma Marris talks about why conservationists should care more about individual animal well-being. I have one coming out next week (available now to Patreon subscribers) talking with vegan novelist Laura Jean McKay about writing fiction that decenters human perspectives and her award-winning book The Animals in That Country.

I'm also hosting a Goodreads Discussing Group ( and monthly book club alternating fiction and nonfiction for Patreon subscribers--February 23 we'll be discussing Amitav Ghosh's The Great Derangement: Climate Change and the Unthinkable, and March 29 we'll discuss the animal rights-themed novel Barn 8, about a plot to liberate a million chickens from an egg farm.

If you are interested you can subscribe here:
Or just fill out this form to stay in the loop:
Or simply follow "Storytelling Animals" wherever you get your podcasts and give it a listen if any episode speaks to you :)

Oberon Ouroboros Odd (oberonoodd) | 0 comments Greetings fellow vegans,

My first book, Otherwise Elsewhere, was published early last month after the start of the new year. There are a lot of interconnected vegan, solarpunk, ecological, and climate topics explored through the many worlds of a science fantasy story that works toward creating a philosophical foundation to increase the probability of a more optimistic and compassionate future.

Feedback would be awesome.

Kent Golden (trashpandabooks) | 24 comments Hi all!
In case you are new and missed it, my book, Ricky the Time Traveling Trash Panda was one of the Books of the Month in this awesome Vegan Book Club. Please check it out! Vegans usually love it and I could really use some reviews. Thanks!

What would you do if you had to save the life of a murderer? How do your daily choices impact animals and the planet? This is a book that just might make you question your life - but in a good way!

Great for vegans, vegetarians, environmentalists, or anyone who loves animals and the planet. This is a novel that deals with moral questions surrounding humans and animals sharing the same world. An enjoyable yet thought-provoking read for teens to adults!

An injured raccoon from the future. . . A shy girl. . . A mission to save the planet. . . But something wasn't right.

Ricky thought he was prepared for anything. But he soon learned that a broken leg, an overly protective cat, and vindictive squirrels were the least of his worries.

His mission was simple - save three targets in order to change the fate of the world and all of humanity. Those three targets were so important to the future of animals that he couldn't wait to meet them.

Only they were the stuff of nightmares. . . A butcher, a hunter, and a scientist, all treating animals in the most horrible ways.

Was this really the mission, or was there some kind of mistake? What should he do?

The adventure begins!

message 19: by Tui (new)

Tui Allen (tuibird) | 14 comments I am a vegan author. However I write from the point of view of animals, so my characters are often not vegan. My main characters are dolphins who eat fish to live as all real dolphins do.
My novel "Ripple" is set in the oceans of Azure (Earth) 20 million years ago, before humans evolved. But the story moves 200 years into the future at the very end. Only then do humans enter the picture.
Ripple is the 20 million year old story of how love inspires one dolphin to an intellectual achievement that changes the universe.
I wrote it to show dolphins as I believe they may really be, in the hope that humans who read it will want to give dolphins the benefit of the doubt from now on, in case they really are as I portray them in Ripple.
The book has been both self-published in English and traditionally published in translation in Europe as "Vlnka" in the Czech language.
I have sold an option for an animated feature movie to be made of the story. I would rather die in poverty than have them exploit live dolphins for filming. Hence animation.
