We’ve made it to another Friday and it’s time to celebrate!
Find out the top 3 sapphic books with the most clicks this week, 5 Random Things about sapphic author Sue Graham, women loving women book freebies, and 2 adorable pups to get your weekend off to a wonderful start!
It’s finally rainbow season. TB looks forward to Pride every year. This year, she talked Miranda into a history project, which we’re calling sapphic trailblazers. While Pride is a joyous time, it’s also a reminder of how far the LGBTQ+ community has come. Sadly, it seems that in recent years, some of our hard-fought rights are being eroded. It can be exhausting to keep fighting, but we must. Here at IHS, we want to do our part to ensure our voices aren’t silenced.
IHS is featuring a Sapphic Trailblazer every day in June. Whether it’ll be a historical figure or a contemporary, we want to celebrate and honor people who have impacted women’s rights and the LGBTQ+ community.
We have a list of trailblazers we plan to feature, but if you have suggestions, please email us at email@example.com and let us know. We want this to be a running feature on IHS going forward, not just during Pride.
PRIDE MONTH TRIVIA
To celebrate Pride Month, Jae put together a fun month-long event for readers of sapphic books.
Test your knowledge of sapphic fiction and win free books, enter giveaways, and get discounted books.
TB loves trivia and she can’t wait for each question every day this month. She’s already answered the first challenge and got it right! She’s feeling pretty good about that and now is wondering how long she can keep her streak going.
Sign up to get an email reminder when a new trivia question is available for you to answer so you won’t miss any of the giveaways, discounted books, and free books.
You won’t be signed up to any newsletter or get any other emails.
IHS IS NOW ON PATREON
Miranda and I had started talking about Patreon last summer, while sitting by a pool in New Mexico when we were at GCLS. After investing in the new I Heart SapphFic, we realized we really needed to look for more ways to help us keep the lights on.
There are 3 levels, ranging from $3 to $25.
Each level will get a funny story by TB.
Depending on the level, Patreon peeps will get behind the scenes stories about TB & Miranda travels, postcards from the road, silly photos of us, and a holiday card in December.
In addition to our regular perks (as described on our Patreon page), we are planning something special for all our supporters of every level from June 23-July 4.
TB and Miranda are embarking on an epic road trip from Boston to Denver to attend GCLS. We will be loading up TB’s car, Pepper, cranking up the Indigo Girls (Miranda is in charge of the playlist), and hitting the road!
Each day, we will be posting an update from the road, complete with stories and photos of the day’s adventures. We’ll continue throughout GCLS and on our drive back. For our Gold level supporters, we’ll even be mailing a handwritten postcard from the trip!
Now for Friday Fun!
