Announcing the 2014 Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event

 

(Thanks again to Kmont for creating another awesome logo)

 

For the past 2 years, I’ve hosted the Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event on my blog. The reason I started this was because of the belief that no one is reading lesbian literature or that lesbian literature isn’t profitable. As an author who writes lesbian fiction, mainly romance, I can say that’s a big fallacy, and one that annoys me. I’m an author who writes for many genres, both straight and LGBT. The reason I write mainly lesbian romance is because it’s as profitable as my straight titles, if not more. This year I published one novella and four full length titles. Three of these were lesbian romance. Two of which I published this summer have made me money, and not just pennies, so there is an interest for lesbian fiction.

 

I’ve been published since 2010 and have seen a major upswing in the amount of lesbian fiction being published. More epublishers are publishing lesbian fiction, and mainly romance. But I do find that the “L” of LGBT is still getting shafted in some ways whenever LGBT is mentioned. That’s why I wanted to have an event for the sole purpose to recognize lesbian fiction and those who support it from authors, publishers and bloggers.

 

Combined, close to 100,000 visitors have read the posts for 2011′s and 2012′s events.

 

Because last year was a great success, and there has been so much interest and participation, I’ve extended this year’s event to 3 weeks, starting Sunday 1/5/14 thru Saturday 1/25/14.
