SapphFic Mischief Saturday Morning Graphic
Happy weekend!

Saturdays are when we curate all the sapphic book news and queer happenings of the week into one convenient location. Think of it as your personal 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 woman loving woman book. What could be better?

In today’s post, you’ll find cheerful LGBTQ+ news stories to combat all the negative ones bombarding our screens.

Sapphic reader Em shares an adorable Caturday photo.

One of the things we love about the weekly lesfic author selfie is getting to know the personality behind the words. Check out sapphic fiction author Jamey Moody with a touching photo of her with her nephew and the Sloan Sisters’ Romance Series.

Finally, scroll to the bottom of the post to see photos of Miranda and TB’s latest adventure, which is unconventional.

Guess the Sapphic Books Author GraphicBefore we get to today’s post, it’s time to reveal the identity of this week’s Guess the Author!

Every week we provide five clues about a sapphic author. On Saturday, we reveal the author’s identity.

Before we unveil this week’s author, here are all 5 clues in case you missed them:

1) A lot of my books are paranormal or set in a fantasy world because I’ve always loved magic.
2) I love food, so much so that I have a whole book about meet cutes over breakfast.
3) My author logo is a bat.
4) I send pictures of my adorable dog in all my newsletters.
5) I include a lot of animals in my books. Some of my latest research has been on bears, dragons, unicorns, and red-eyed tree frogs.

Now it’s time to reveal their name. Drum roll please…

This week’s author is Arizona Tape!

Check out Her Mechanic Bear Mate, Arizona’s new release!

Arizona’s bio:

Arizona Tape lives her dream life hanging out with her dog and writing stories all day. Her favourite books to write are urban fantasy and paranormal romances with queer leads, stories that she wished were around when she was younger.

When she’s not writing, she can be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen, watching shows that make her cry, or trying her hand at her new hobby of the week. She currently lives in the United Kingdom with her girlfriend and her adorable dog who is the star of her newsletter.

Queer News Worth Clicking Graphic

TB is determined to spread good rainbow news during 2024, which let’s face, is going to be a rough year. There are a lot of elections all over the world, which means we’re in for a lot of scaremongering. While it’s important to stay informed, it’s also vital not to lose sight of all the kindness in the world. Below are the happy queer stories that made TB smile this week. They’re queer news links worth clicking!

American Psychological Association takes a stand against bans on gender-affirming care for minors — a great step!

Republicans help kill anti-LGBTQ+ bill in Utah — let’s hope this trend continues!

Zoe Lister-Jones debuted relationship with nonbinary filmmaker Sammi Cohen — we wish them all the best!

X/Twitter has ‘quietly restored’ a ban on misgendering and deadnaming trans people — it shouldn’t have been allowed ever, but hopefully this time sticks.

Matildas player Grace Wilson becomes first pro Australian footballer to come out as non-binary — be true to yourself!

Humpback sex photographed for first time – and both whales were male — TB did a report on humpbacks in elementary school, and they become her favorite whales. Now she’s learning some are gay! She knew there was a reason she had an affinity for them.

Meet Louis orange and white cat

Meet Louis! Our 3-year-old cat, Louis, has the charming habit of tucking himself between layers of freshly washed and folded laundry. Although we would like to discourage this, it’s hard to convey our disapproval, when he looks at us with those eyes. Submitted by Em, a reader.

Jamey Moody Selfie

As many readers know, Jamey Moody took her pen name from her beloved nephew. In this author selfie, notice the photo of both Jamey Moodys as they look on where Cat Sloan is Swirling completes the Sloan Sisters’ Romance Series. Here’s the tagline: Can a fake kiss lead to forever?

TB and Miranda love exploring places near and far, almost as much as they love a good sapphic book. Follow them on their travels and find out what sapphic books they’ve brought along!

TB here.

Our latest adventure in life has been Miranda’s surgery, which thankfully went well and Miranda is on the road to recovery.

The first few days after Miranda came home from the hospital, I stayed at her place to help out. Little did I know, my full-time job would involve keeping Artimis and Luna, AKA The Sisters of Chaos, off Miranda’s lap. I’m pretty sure I was their least favorite person for those days. Artie and Luna finally compromised by either curling up next to Miranda or on her legs.

When I came home to my cat, Sam, he was angry as well. For a cat lover, it’s tough knowing they were all mad at me. Although, they’re very cute when annoyed.

Here are some adorable photos of the sisters and Sam.

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend!

Miranda & TB
