Sapphic Book News, C. Spencer, 10 Books on Sale, Caturday, and More!

SapphFic Mischief Saturday Morning Graphic
It’s starting to feel like spring around IHS Headquarters!

Saturdays are when we round up all the sapphic book news from the previous week into one convenient location. Think of it as your personal queer reading directory! After all, we know the weekend is when so many of us are able to unwind for a minute and want to get lost in a good wlw book. What could be better?

Why does the weather take a turn for the worst when the weekend hits? You’d think TB would have learned this fact of life by now, but every weekend, she’s still disappointed.

For today’s Sapphic Book in the Wild, TB and Miranda snapped photos of V.A.M.P. by Kimberly A. Todd and they were tickled pink by the connection they made to vampires via Nathaniel Hawthorne’s wife. Find out about this fascinating story below.

If you’re looking for something to read this weekend, below you’ll find 10 books on sale. Need more choices? Check out the BookFinder, which has more than 3,500 books for you to choose from, ranging from steamy sapphic romance books, ice queen wlw romances, lesfic audiobooks, queer superheroes, best friends to lovers lesbian romances and so much more!

Meet Diablo Black and White Cat

Meet Diablo! I named him Diablo because he can be a little Devil. Here he is on my keyboard while I’m trying to work. He can be demanding at times but all can be very lovable. Submitted by Jim, a reader.

Where the heck was TB?

TB loves exploring places near and far, so we’ve created a weekly game where TB goes on an adventure, snaps some photos, and then lets you guess her location.

To answer last week’s mystery, 64% of you were right. Miranda & I visited the House of the Seven Gables. Also, 21% of you guessed I got stuck in the narrow stairwell again. Ding, ding, ding! I did! I always forget to take my backpack off, and then have to wiggle out of it in very tight quarters to keep moving. Every. Dang. Time.

After touring the house, we visited another place in Salem and we took along V.A.M.P. by Kimberly A. Todd. Why? Because, while on the tour at the House of the Seven Gables, we learned that when Nathaniel Hawthorne was wooing his future wife, she wasn’t much for going out during the daylight hours. Instead, they’d walk in the evening in the cemetery next door to her house. Wouldn’t it be funny if Hawthorne’s wife was actually a vampire?

Here are some facts about the cemetery.

1. It was established in 1637, making it Salem’s oldest cemetery.

2. It’s right next to the Salem Witch Trials Memorial (there’s a photo of the memorial below in addition to the cemetery). None of the victims were buried in this cemetery.

3. Also next to this cemetery is the Grimshawe House, where Sophia Peabody, who married Nathaniel Hawthorne, lived. There’s a photo of the house below.

4. Richard More, a Mayflower passenger, is buried here.

5. John Hathorne, a Salem Witch Trials judge and ancestor of Nathaniel Hawthorne, is buried here. And yes, that spelling is correct. It has been theorized that Nathaniel Hawthorne added the “w” to his name to distance himself from this deeply troubling family connection.

6. It sits on 1.47 acres and has 619 gravestones and 17 box tombs.

Below are some photos of the cemetery and V.A.M.P.

Time to vote on the name of the cemetery in Salem!

Polls are open until April 27 and the answer will be revealed on Saturday, April 29.

This poll is no longer accepting votes

Where in the Heck are TB & Miranda?

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!
