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?
TB & MIRANDA HAVE RECOVERED!
We mentioned in yesterday’s post how we weren’t feeling well due to get our flu and covid jabs. We’ve recovered, but TB might still be a bit whiney about her sore arm. Miranda, on the other hand, has been keeping IHS afloat the past couple of days, all the while trying to manage TB’s off-the-wall requests. Like wanting one of her favorite meals from a pub in Dublin. Miranda said no, she wouldn’t fly over and bring it home. She can be so unreasonable sometimes.
YOU CAN HELP IHS WITH YOUR HOLIDAY SHOPPING!
TB is already getting her holiday shopping done. She only has a few more gifts to buy. She’s not usually this on the ball, but the next couple of months are going to be stressful with organizing the November Mega Sale, mapping out the 2024 Reading Challenge, the December 99c sale, and traveling to attend 20Books to 50K in Las Vegas. Not to mention writing one final book before the end of the year!
If you’re shopping for gifts on Amazon, it would be fantastic if you could click on one of our affiliate links first. That way we earn a small commission for your purchase. Every penny we get helps keep the lights on and it’s a simple way to support I Heart SapphFic. Here’s a link you can click to get you to Amazon.
Thanks so much for the help!
CALLING ALL SAPPHIC AUTHORS
If you haven’t submitted your 2024 Reading Challenge forms yet, don’t wait. Nearly half the slots for next year are already filled.
We’re relying on the reading challenge forms we receive to map out the categories and books. Please note that inclusion is not automatic. You must submit a reading challenge form to have your book(s) involved.
The reading challenge is by far the most popular weekly post on the website, receiving the most visitors and clicks. It’s a wonderful and free way to promote either a new release or the books in your backlist.
You can submit as many books as you want and we recommend ticking as many categories as apply for each book to increase the odds of your book being selected. We can only feature an author once in each category, so submitting 5 books with Ice Queen as their only category means 4 of your books will automatically be excluded. The more options you provide, the better.
The submission deadline is December 1, 2023.
Here’s the 2024 Reading Challenge Submission form: https://forms.gle/
