“As a nonbinary asexual artist I was thrilled to find parts of myself in the characters from The Last Session. We have such a big and wonderful cast and Jasmine managed to give everyone their time to shine. I’m hoping for readers to fall in love with the story and characters, to laugh and cry with them and to generally find as much joy in this series as I did while working on it.”Artist, Dozerdraws
“As someone who made a tight-knit group of friends playing D&D in high school, this book was an absolute joy to write. Combined with Dozer’s stunning artwork, we’ve created the kind of characters I’d have loved to read about, especially as a teen struggling with what being aro/ace meant to me. We’re exploring the often scary transition from teenage years to adulthood in a way that’s fun, a little messy, and with plenty of monster fighting. One thing I’ve realized as an adult is that friendship really can save the day, and more often than you might think.”Writer, Jasmine Walls
