Maybe you would consider taking a peek at our selection, and if you like it, leave the authors and artist a note to let them know what you think about their work.
So, Lumos this month's selection:
The Mother who Lived by drinkingcocoa
Summary: What does the Harry Potter series say about mothering? Lily's self-sacrifice was magic because it was universal: any mother would die to protect her child. But what about the rest of us -- the caretakers who do the daily drudgework of keeping a child alive, and keeping the self alive for the child? Whether it's about Snape protecting an enemy's son, Petunia and her unwanted nephew, or a suicidally depressed single mother, Rowling permeates her series with stories about how it feels to be the Mother Who Lived.
