In the Cyrilian Empire Affinites are reviled Their varied gifts to control the world around them are unnatural dangerous And Anastacya Mikhailov the crown princess has a terrifying secret Her deadly Affinity to blood is her curse and the reason she has lived her life hidden behind palace walls When Ana’s father the emperor. 30 Apr 2019Ladies and gentlemen it s been confirmed BLOOD HEIR WILL BE PUBLISHED This is not a drill I repeat this is not a drill Blood Heir will be out November 19th 2019To the haters I sayAccording to New York Times this is why and how Zhao finally decided to go ahead with publishing Blood Heir if you want to know why it was cancelled scroll down to the Jan 31 update Zhao reread her book several times examining the plot and characters to see if the critics were right She decided they weren tIn March Zhao called her editor at Delacorte Press and told her that she wanted to move forward with the novel after all She made some revisions and Blood Heir is now scheduled to be released in November Ultimately it s true to my vision she saidZhao s decision to move ahead with publication will likely reignite the fractious ongoing debate about diversity representation and cancel culture in the young adult literary worldWhile some see the discussion about cultural appropriation in fiction as a necessary if painful step toward addressing the lack of diversity in publishing others argue that the online YA community has become too cutthroat even intolerant in its attacks on first time authors who tackle challenging social issues or write outside their immediate cultural experienceAnd here is the author s letter about her decision to publishDear ReadersI m glad to announce that Blood Heir will publish on November 19 2019In writing this novel I researched extensively on the subject of modern day human trafficking and indentured labor throughout the world and specifically from my heritage It is a practice that thrives on societal complicity and complacency and it is my hope that Blood Heir will confront the silence surrounding this epidemic that continues to affect 45 million victims globallyThrough important dialogue that occurred recently it became clear to me that my book was being read in a different cultural context than my own so I decided to take the time to make sure the hallmarks of human trafficking were being incisively drawnI hope to share a new perspective from my background as a Chinese immigrant living in America I am excited for readers to meet my heroine who believes in justice and is ready to fight for it with her wits grit and magic and for them to have a chance to engage in further dialogue about these important social issuesThank you for your supportSincerelyAm lieI am so proud of this community for showing Am lie their support and for speaking out against bullying and I am so so proud of her for staying strong and getting something positive out of the negativity sent her wayIf you re reading this Am lie I just want you to know that your determination to stand by what you believe is right and your strength against the narrow minded bullies is so inspiring and I love you for itWhatever happens now whatever anyone says know that we are there to stand by your side Know that there s those of us who will have your back in whatever comes nextI really wanna hug you right now You and the whole Goodreads community And to all who might read this never forget to have each other s backs And when you want to criticise a matter first fully listen to what someone else might have to say then and only then voice your critiue and opinion of itI hope we all learn a lesson from this to not make assumptions about what someone else might be saying without full knowledge and attack them for itMic drop 09 Feb 2019I need to say this because we all need a little positivity and unity I m proud of youNo not the bullies who in the name of criticism aggressively attack others No I m proud of you who rallied against such behaviour to show that we don t support the shameful actions of the fewYou I m proud of you I m proud of us Hell I m proud of humanityDon t let the few define or control usHere s an article by two authors who had similar experiences giving their two very different view points on the matter click to read the NY Times articleTo uote author Jonah Winter from the article aboveTo the online mob I say and encourage Am lie Wen Zhao to say as did the Duke of Wellington in response to a threat to expose his extramarital affair Publish and be damned And I do hope Am lie stays strong and patient against this unacceptable Twitter attack and eventually gives us a chance to enter her beautiful world 31 Jan 2019This reaction by people is RIDICULOUSThe book has been pulled from publication because of a number of nearsighted Twitter reviewersPeople are unbelievableWhat happened in summary With a group of mostly American writers pillorying a novel few of them had read out of the misplaced conviction that the book was about American slavery and handled that subject inappropriately that therefore it was deeply racist and that further its author was not only an offensive writer but a maniacally screenshotting danger to othersThey spread those claims far and wide to the point where they were echoed and amplified by influential members of the literary community in uestion As a result the book which was intended as a comment on contemporary slavery in a part of the world most Americans know nothing about probably won t be published and won t give American readers a chance to read the perspective of an Asian writer inspired by an issue of urgent importance to many Asian people Now here s the problemThere are different ways to call out a subject you want to speak against like racism in fantasyA You build a world where it s not a problem like it s normal for characters to be bisexual or gay and you show the reader the rightness if it You accustom them to the fact that it s okThis is usually useful for writing for kids whose ideas are just shaping and who you don t want to bring into too much of the fights of the world yetB You build a world where it is a problem but the character is speaking against it and trying to change itThis strategy is the most common one and the most pleasing one for readers It s typical and understandable and straightforward and doesn t reuire so much thought from the lazy readerSo while many would say that in method A the subject was just bandied about and not a firebrand and so pointless or say that in method C it was actually standing for it and not calling it out method B is the easiest way which just satisfies too many YA readersC And here s the most challenging one You build a world where it is a problem but instead of happy merry I m gonna give a speech and change the world you show the harms this belief bringsIn this method you re focusing on the destruction brought by for example racism The scars it leaves So than a revolution or a firebrand it s a personal fight for the character to show how you can survive that hateAnd this strategy of calling out a trope is the most conflicting one but also the one that leads the open minded reader to the most thoughts and understanding Most adult readers across genres understand that representing a morally repugnant position as part of a broader narrative is not the same as endorsing that opinion but this is the sort of obvious to everyone else point YA Twitter tends to confuse or outright reject And that is exactly what happens repeatedly Reading the tweets I feel repulsed by some people and authors alikeWhat they don t understand is that the world is not all like your neighborhood A lot of people don t understand that many of the issues you have perhaps solved with yourself or even ones you ve never had are still cultural issues in a huge percentage of the worldAnd everything is NOT about you If there s slavery it doesn t mean American slavery It s shining light on something in another culture in past or present so would you stop and read if you want to understand or stop and leave if you don t What s the point of all this backlash and hateOr for many people it s like if it s telling a story set in the past or in a world where it s still a patriarchy and there s no revolutionary woman or a understanding man in the story that miraculously disagrees with it all then the story is supporting the idea of women lesser than man instead of maybe realising the fact that it s showing the harms it brings and that not everyone is so fortunate to live in a world where women can do anything for God knows I don tYes if for example slavery or racism is a sensitive subject for you which reading its effects will only unsettle you and you are uite aware of it then don t pick up the book using method CI understand I share those sensitivities for many things myself and just don t read the book But that doesn t mean it s wrong in its way of calling out the trope It s raising awareness in a different wayAnd another thing is unaware people spreading rumours But while some of the social justice concerns percolating within YA fiction are legitimate the explosive manner in which they re expressed within YA Twitter is another storyPosing as urgent interventions to prevent the circulation of harmful tropes the pile ons are often based on selective excerpts pulled out of context from the advance copies of books most in the community haven t read yet Often they feature critics operating on the basis of idiosyncratic ideas about the very purpose and nature of fiction itself elevating tendentious interpretations of the limited snippets available to pass judgement on books before they have been released And that s one reason it s been a whole year since I ve visited my Twitter or Instagram accounts The social media is just unbelievably ridiculous in its harassments If a confused friend ever asks you to sum up the culture of YA Twitter in one sentence Imagine a white woman explaining that she is spreading unverifiable rumors about a first time author of color in order to protect people of color will do nicely So while I have not read Blood Heir it s pretty clear to me it s using something between methods C and B or perhaps starting from C and leading to B I m not sure but I m sure that IT S NOT SUPPORTING RACISM FOR GOD S SAKEI m so sad to read this letter by the author I feel ashamed shakes headI still want to read this book Without a doubtTo the book communityI want to start by saying that I have the utmost respect for your voices and I am listening l am grateful to those who have raised uestions around representation coding and themes in my bookI emigrated from China when I was 18 Drawing on my own multicultural upbringing and the complex history of my heritage that has incidences of bias and oppression I wrote Blood Heir from my immediate cultural perspective The issues around Affinite indenturement in the story represent a specific critiue of the epidemic of indentured labor and human trafficking prevalent in many industries across Asia including in my owrn home country The narrative and history of slavery in the United States is not something I cultural context I am so sorry for the pain this has causedIt was never my intention to bring harm to any reader of this valued community particularly those for whom I seek to write and empower As such I have decided to ask my publisher not to publish Blood Heir at this time and they have agreed I don t wish to clarify defend or have anyone defend me This is not that this is an apologyWith the feedback of the community I feel this is the right decisionThank youSincerelyAm lieThe uoted sections are from the Tablet Magazine article which you need to read Initial reviewLet s all take a moment and raise our glasses to Am lie Wen ZhaoWhy I ll tell you In a world where the princess is the monster oppression is blind to skin color and good and evil exist in shades of grayUm Thank you Grey morality and the exploration of what is evil or monstrous and also euality has always been the strongest point of a book to meSo basically it s already a must read but that s not even the start of it comes a dark Anastasia retelling that explores love loss fear and divisiveness and how ultimately it is our choices that define who we areKeywords to focus on dark Anastasia retelling loss fear choices identityThe best part however is the message she wants to convey with this book I was totally moved after reading her letter to the reader I am an immigrant I am a woman of color And I am an Other In my time in the United States I have never experienced the sense of crushing fear about my identity that I have recently Get out of my country communist is only one of the slurs I ve had screamed at me from across the street What I ve experienced personally and seen across social media outlets and national television broadcasts has all amounted to a hyperawareness of my foreignness my Otherness and the possibility that because I am different I am not worthy of belongingBlood Heir explores the demonization of the Other and this experience of not belonging Ana s journey examines how one can internalize hatred and fear how that can warp one s core and turn it into something cruel and twisted But ultimately her story is one of self acceptance and of the realization that we cannot change who we are nor what we are born with but we can choose what we do with what we are given And like me Ana chooses to fight for a better tomorrowSo I gave magic to my girls who were told they were monsters I gave my children of color the ability to fight oppression Because in a world where there is so little I can control I want to put hope and power in their hands for once and in a world where those deemed different are often cast out and made to be monsters I want them to win I don t think there are any words that could describe how I m feeling right now about this book about the authorI m filled with respect wonder and love and I know that I will love this book with all my heartCounting the days until June 4th 2019 already added to my calendar Days Like This princess has a terrifying secret Her deadly Affinity to blood is her curse and the reason she has lived her life
