That’s a working title and will not, let me repeat, will not be what the published book will be called. Absolutely not.
Have you ever been told that you are a “self-hating [blank]” by a liberal? Ever been told you “can’t” be a conservative/Republican because you are a member of a minority? Do you make liberals uncomfortable because you don’t fit the stereotypical old white straight christian male box they created to shove all conservatives in?
I know a lot of you have, because I’ve seen it happen on tumblr, twitter, facebook, and in the media. It’s happened to me too, almost daily, since I “came out” as a gay conservative.
Liberals like to pretend we don’t exist and some conservatives may not even be aware that we are in their midst, leaving them not knowing about a serious resource they could use to do voter outreach or learn how to better express conservative views to minority communities.
I want to change that with a book that will tell the stories and ideas of minority conservatives to the rest of the country.
Please contact me at MeredithAncret@gmail.com with the heading “Conservative Minority” if you would like to be part of the book. I will be conducting interviews which will be a part of the book, which I hope to have completed and on it’s way to being published (whether through a publishing company or self published) by January of 2016.
This is open to all minority conservatives. Meaning if you don’t fit the “old, white, straight, christian, male” demographic please contact me.

If your interview is chosen for the book you will be asked to approve your interview for publication. Not all interviews will be used, but I have plans for an interactive website in the future where your interviews, blogs, and even videos about being a minority conservative can be posted.
