Milena McKay (and Tara) loves Truth and Measure (QR Bonus 007)

November 29, 2022

Roslyn Sinclair has committed high crimes against readers’ productivity and we are here for it!

This episode, Tara is joined by f/f romance author Milena McKay. They gathered to sit in gratitude and fangirl about one of their favourite stories of all time. It began as a Devil Wears Prada fanfic and ended up being rewritten and published as its own original work. Yes, it’s Truth and Measure season, baby!

Referred to by Lee Winter as “The Lesfic Bible,” Truth and Measure has impacted the lesfic scene in profound ways. Tara and Milena discuss the book’s history, including how the #MeToo movement impacted the changes from fic to published work, and all the things the love about both versions. Get ready for major geeking out, friends.
