Top Sapphic Books, Edale Lane, Freebies, and More

Friday Feels Graphic
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 Edale Lane, women loving women book freebies, and an adorable pup named Toby to get your weekend off to a wonderful start!

One week from today, TB and Miranda will be climbing into Pepper, TB’s car, at a ridiculously early hour to start their epic road trip for the Golden Crown Literary Society Conference in Denver. Over the past couple of years, TB has become a morning person, but Miranda isn’t. Not by a long shot. TB’s wondering how much grumbling Miranda will do those first few hours before her tea kicks in. Miranda’s wondering how much trouble TB will get them into and how many tits shirts TB will pack.

Want to follow along to find out? They’ll be sharing daily updates and photos with the IHS Patreon peeps. For the road trip updates, it doesn’t matter what level of supporter you are. The posts will be available to all (but only Gold level will get postcards in the mail). If you haven’t signed up and want to be part of their epic road trip (and earn eternal gratitude by helping support IHS), click here to join them.

5 Random Things Graphic

5 Random Things is our way of helping readers to get to know top sapphic book authors all the while having a bit of fun.

Here are five random facts about Edale Lane.

1. Once my family had an Irish Wolfhound, German Shepherd, and Doberman/Rottweiler cross at the same time. When someone drove up, the dogs would line up at the open front window behind a flimsy screen and people would be afraid to get out of their cars. Sweetest dogs ever!

2. As a child, I earned the nickname “Sargent Toothpick” because I liked to wear army fatigues to elementary school and was so skinny my friends joked that when I turned sideways, I disappeared altogether.

3. In 1980 I marched with the Garfield Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps (later the Bergan County Cadets and now simply the Cadets.) I won a trophy at the world championships for Best Individual Mellophone player for performing Strauss’ First Horn Concerto on a bugle.

4. At age 60 I got my first tattoo. My daughter had been asking me to get a matching mother-daughter tattoo with her for years, so for her birthday I took us to her favorite tattoo parlor and we got the matching ink. The moral of the story: you’re never too old to try something new.

5. One day after putting my daughter’s horse in the backyard to eat grass, I went to the kitchen to do dishes. Hearing a “clomp, clomp,” I looked over to see Buddy eying me curiously. He had come in the back door just as if he belonged in the house.
