Equity Statement & Statement of Safety

The mission of Author Barn is to create a community of genre authors who share the love of reading, storytelling, and promotional opportunities for their books.

We are aware that authors come from a wide range of communities including BIPOC, AAPI, LGBTQIA2s+, neurodivergent, and disabled. This site and it’s parent company, Epona Author Solutions (Epona Muse, LLC) has a zero-tolerance no hate speech or bullying policy. Not toward other authors and not toward our staff/customer support. Anyone found violating this policy will be banned.

We service all genre fiction without religious overtones. Additional information about this policy can be found in our knowledge base. Our genres of primary focus are fantasy, mystery, romance, and science fiction.

This statement and our zero-tolerance for hate speech and bullying also covers our Discord channel. Discussions may become heated; however, it is incumbent upon everyone to remember we’re all human, we’re all authors, and we’re all here for the same things–to share our stories and our love of storytelling.

Information about our bad customer policy, our member directory communication policy, and our policy on religious-focused fiction can be found in our knowledge base.
