Happy weekend!

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?

Free Sapphic Contemporary Romances

Free Sapphic Contemporary Romances

Adrian J. Smith has organized a free book event on BookFunnel. Full disclosure. To get the freebies, you’ll be asked to sign up for author newsletters. Personally, we like getting newsletters because it’s a good way to never miss one of their new releases and updates.

There are some big names involved, including Rachel Lacey, Fiona Zedde, Jamey Moody, Chris Zett, and more.

Check them out here.

I Heart SapphFic Week in Review

Here are the links for this week’s posts:

Meet Mitten

Meet Mitten! This is my *baby girl*, Mitten. She is 9 years old, and quite a chunky girl, but you couldn’t tell her that, she still thinks she weighs as much as a 6 week old kitten! She loves snuggling right on my chest and nestling up under my neck! She also loves chasing shadows (it’s quite hilarious to watch) if it’s dark in the room I’ll turn my phone flashlight on and move it around the room and she chases every shadow it makes! I hope you give my pretty girl an opportunity to show off her beauty. Submitted by Alex, a reader.

Rhiannon Grant with Carving a New Shape

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 question, 79% of you got it right. We visited the birthplace of Franklin D. Roosevelt in Hyde Park, New York. Also, 19% of you think TB tried to use the elevator. Nope. To use it you have to pull a rope and TB has zero arm strength.

Now for this week’s guessing game.

A few weeks ago, Miranda invited TB to visit an island to help with book research. TB’s job is to take an insane amount of photos and whine. Miranda doesn’t think that second item is necessary, but she’s not sure how to break TB of the habit.

Here are some clues about island.

1. The island is 30 miles south of Cape Cod.

2. It’s known as a summer vacation place and in the summer the population swells from 14,000 to 80,000.

3. Since the 1920s, it’s been known as an art colony.

4. Wings, a popular 90s sitcom, was set on the island.

5. Elin Hilderbrand moved to the island in 1993 and became a “classified ads girl” at a newspaper. She started writing stories about the island, penning many bestsellers and garnering a dedicated fan base.

6. In 2018, the average price of a single-family home was over 2 million. Hence why TB asked Miranda, “Can we afford to go for a day trip?”

Here are some photos of the island.


Time to vote on the name of the island.

This poll is no longer accepting votes

What's the name of the island?

Polls close on September 14. The answer will be revealed on September 16 .

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!

Miranda & TB
