In the course of the recent ugliness about sexism, racism and homophobia in the SFF community, I also decided to talk up more good books that go beyond the limits of straight, white, male and Anglo-American.
I’m starting right here and give you more than twenty great indie books with GLBT themes in a variety of genres. We have lots of fantasy, we have romance (including some contemporary lesbian romances set in Japan), we have YA and NA, we have erotica, we have historical fiction (including a novel about a bisexual trans pharao). And best of all, if you’re lucky you can have one of those books for free
For I am proud to present you the Words of Pride Giveaway of books with GLBTQ themes, which was organized by lesbian romance author Hildred Billings.
The giveaway runs until June 28th and includes more than twenty indie books with GLBTQ themes in various genres and formats. There’s fantasy, there are romances, there’s erotica, there is YA and NA, there is historical fiction. Oh yes, and a little story of mine called Outlaw Love.
So enter if you want a chance to discover some great indie fiction away from the heterosexual mainstream for free. And since there are so many great books on offer, maybe you’ll even find a few you want to buy.
