Tea For Two Part 1: An Original Story by Caitlin Ricci (2014 Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event)...

Jan 16, 2014 by

  Hello. I’m Caitlin Ricci and I write GLBTQS romance in all heat levels– young adult, sweet romance, and erotic romance. I began writing lesbian romance in the summer of 2013 but it wasn’t until last fall, when Cari Z and I started writing our first novel together, that I grew to be in love with the genre and the characters that were inside my head. I was first published in June of 2012 and since then have been largely focused on writing gay romance but there is something special about being able to write about women and having those strong characters that I identify with falling in love. Two of my favorite female characters in television are from the show Firefly; Zoe and Kaylee. Inara I liked as well but it was the...

Forever Seeking Lesbian Fiction by Storm Moon Press (2014 Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event)...

Jan 15, 2014 by

  It’s that wonderful time of year again when we gather together to celebrate lesbian fiction and, if you’re like me, dream of the day when it will be as plentiful as other kinds of fiction out there. Het romance is everywhere, of course, and gay fiction has been growing year after year, but lesbian fiction is one of the sects of the QUILTBAG that deserves a boost of visibility and a little extra love (along with bisexual and trans* fiction, but that’s another post ^_-).     As one of the owners of Storm Moon Press, I’m always on the lookout for quality lesbian fiction. We’re a QUILTBAG press and have been from the very start, but the majority of our titles have been centered on gay erotic romance because that’s what has...

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Writing F/F Romance by Leigh Ellwood (2014 Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event)...

Jan 15, 2014 by

  I’m thrilled to return to the Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event, this time with news I’m breaking right here: I have signed with Ellora’s Cave Publishing to write two F/F stories! The first, Sugar Rush, will be available later this summer, and I’ll follow up with Sugar High. In the meantime, you’re welcome to check out my latest F/F erotic short, an interracial romance called A Taste of Vanilla (links below). Today, I’d like to begin by talking about Sugar Rush, particularly why I chose to write another lesbian romance. If you’ve visited my website, you’ve seen the variety of genres offered. I have written M/F contemporaries, gay erotic romance, menage, paranormal, and the occasional BDSM. I’ve written stories that one could categorize as New Adult, though the term hadn’t existed at publication. When...

Lost in a Liplock by Virginia Nelson (2014 Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event)...

Jan 14, 2014 by

  I write romance because there is something magical about finding someone and having that click. When it happens, the whole world seems just a little brighter. You don’t need to eat, sleep, nothing because you know something amazing just happened. In all the universe, out of all the people walking this earth, you found a special someone who makes your heart race and your palms sweat. In writing f/f erotic romance, we get to explore all of those sensations, whether they’re at the very beginning in a moment of discovery or later, when the shine wears off and you have to work to stay together. At any point in the journey, someone might decide to get off the ride—maybe it is moving too fast or maybe it is going far too slow—but for...

All That Jazz by Jill Sorenson (2014 Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event)...

Jan 14, 2014 by

  The Jazz Age (~1920s) isn’t the most popular historical setting for romance novels. Instead “stories about manners” in the Regency period dominate the genre. Maybe the 20s are too rude, too debauched, too liberated for traditionalists. But that’s part of its charm. I remember learning about the Harlem Renaissance in college. I read the Great Gatsby and swooned over Natalie Wood in Splendor in the Grass. I don’t know much about the time period, but I get the impression of wild parties, sexual exploration and daring styles. Bootleg liquor, speakeasies and loose women. What’s not to like?   Here are some Jazzy GLBT romances:   The Seduction of Moxie by Colette Moody Set in 1931, this novel might not qualify as Jazz Age, but it embodies all of the qualities I associate with...

Why F/F? By Olivia Starke (2014 Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event)...

Jan 13, 2014 by

  I’ve been asked this question, and yes I’ve asked myself the very same thing. In an industry where M/M is top selling, why write F/F? I wholly believe the market is strong for lesbian and fluid romance and erotica. And the stories of love and lust shared between women aren’t just for gay women, just as M/M isn’t only for gay men. What I find in a well written lesbian story is the strength and beauty inherent in women. There is something magical and seductive in the way women express themselves. I do like men, but they will never hold the beauty of expression that women are capable of in a love story. At least not in my eyes. As the erotic romance market opens up more, and with the anonymity ebooks offer...
