Here’s the catch. You have to commit to purchasing a lesbian novel that is not a romance sometime in the next 6 months. You heard me right: I said a lesbian novel that is not a romance. Doesn’t mean the novel won’t include romance, (many do, including all of mine) but the story revolves around other exciting plot points, and thus the novel is not classified as a romance by the publisher. My condition for entering this contest is shocking, I know. But it’s all a part of my current scheme to get lesbian readers to branch out, be daring. (Insert evil music here.)
So, proclaim it in your comment—I, Lesbina Dykovich, hereby commit to purchasing one lesbian-themed novel that is not a romance before February 2012—and I’ll pull one of your entries from a hat. You have until September 19.
I’ll even give you some titles to choose from:
Beggar of Love, Lee Lynch
Land of Entrapment, Andi Marquette
Mephisto Aria, Justine Saracen
House of Clouds, KI Thompson
Reluctant Daughter, Lesléa Newman
Women of the Mean Streets: Lesbian Noir edited by J.M. Redmann and Greg Herren
And any of mine, of course.
And that’s just to name a few!
Of course, I’ll have no way of checking up on you. So you’ll have to use your own conscience. But I trust you, Lesbina Dykovich. I do.
So go ahead, make the commitment. I dare you.
Deadline: Sept. 19
To be announced Sept. 20.
