Book Giveaway!

Hey all, I’m giving away a copy of one of my novels. Your choice: “Maye’s Request”, “Spanking New”, or “The Middle of Somewhere.”

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.

  2. Since Bedazzled Ink publishes many novels with lesbian protagonists that would not be classified as romances, might I be so bold as to add two more Andi Marquette titles:

    Friends in High Places
    A Matter of Blood

    Plus a few more:

    Adijan and Her Genie by L-J Baker
    Sweet Turnaround J by PV Beck
    Alix & Valerie by Ingrid Diaz

    (I’m kind of cheating though because I don’t think I’ve ever purchased a lesbian-themed romance novel. But I would love to win one of your books!)

  9. I bought in the last week “From a Distance” CL.Hart, “For Me and My Gal” Robbie McCoy and “Borderline” Linda Crist. Does that count? If so, I’d appreciate being in your drawing.

    Thanks

  10. Radical concept! Then it begs the question, what is a lesbian-themed book? I always stub my toe on that. I branched out and wrote a book with a lesbian main character, but it’s not considered lesbian-themed… I guess it’s life-themed!

    I bought Nicola Griffith’s “The Blue Place” and while it has a romance, it is a great suspense novel – ‘Lisbeth Sanders’ meets Lee Child’s ‘Jack Reacher’.

    • Ah! You daring to enter the dragon’s lair. Yes. This is an interesting question. What is a lesbian-themed novel, indeed. For the time being, I’m considering it a novel with a lesbian protagonist. Kind of flimsy, but you have to draw the line somewhere. Be interested to hear your thoughts.

    Does ‘Romantic Fantasy’ count as ‘Romance’… ?

  14. For the cash-strapped among us, I might mention that Book I of my lesbian-themed-not-a-romance trilogy, When Women Were Warriors, is available for free from my website here:
    http://www.catherinemwilson.com/free-ebook.html

    If free doesn’t count for the challenge, you can purchase it for Kindle for 99 cents and in epub format from Smashwords, also 99 cents. And you are, of course, welcome to buy Books II and III.

    Also, Nicola Griffith would be an excellent choice. The Blue Place and its 2 sequels is just stunning!

    Should be easy since I buy several every year and through sharing have read about 50 different lesbian-themed novels in the past few years.

    Some of my favorite authors: Ali Vali, Gerri Hill, Radclyffe, Karin Kallmaker, Kim Baldwin, and Ellen Hart, just to name a few.

    Thanks clifford for the offer and for turning me on to this website.
