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?
CELEBRATING OUR ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY
The calendar doesn’t lie. No matter how hard it is for TB and Miranda to believe, we just celebrated the one-year anniversary of launching the new I Heart SapphFic website and BookFinder!
There were definitely some times along this journey when we were tempted to toss in the towel. The project became way more time consuming and expensive than we budgeted for. However, our mission for IHS kept us going through the difficult times, and it still spurs us to continue.
CALLING ALL SAPPHIC AUTHORS
Like last year, there will be 2 categories per week so we can feature as many books as possible.
You can submit as many books as you want. We recommend ticking as many boxes that apply for each book to increase the odds of your book being selected. Remember, we can only feature an author once in each category. So submitting 5 books with Ice Queen as the only category means 4 of your books will automatically be excluded. The more data you provide, the better.
We’ll do our best to fit in as many books as we can, but we cannot guarantee a spot for every book submitted.
The sooner you submit your book(s) the better because TB will begin mapping out the categories and books as soon as she starts receiving them. The project usually takes her two months, meaning there’s not a lot of time to waste.
Please note, in order to take part, you must submit the form below. Just having your book in the database doesn’t automatically qualify your book for the reading challenge. There are over 4,600 books in the database, and we only have reading challenge slots for less than half that number. This means, you must fill out the form to have your book(s) in the challenge.
The submission deadline is December 1, 2023.
