Facebook and social media in general often seem to be in the news for all the wrong reasons lately.
However, there is still one thing that the internet and social networks are still good at; connecting people.Check out this list of Facebook Groups you NEED to join if you LOVE Lesbian Books and WLW Fiction! #LesFic #LGBTQPromo #LesbianBooks Click To Tweet
If you are looking for like-minded readers, who enjoy fiction with lesbian characters and women-loving-women storylines, then I have gathered together fifteen book groups on Facebook where you can do just that!
“This is a group for women (lesbians), who love to read lesbian books! Authors get to promote their works and readers get the chance to know whenever there’s new great material to get! Readers are allowed to praise the writers, comment on the books, recommend books and if possible review.”
“In this group we chat about our monthly book club read. See the header and announcements for the title of the book we are reading this month. This group is a place for readers to join us as we talk about book club books. All lesfic lovers are welcome here! (This group is open to women, men, non-binary people (cis, trans or fluid) straight, gay, lesbian and all the other colours of the rainbow.)”
“This is the official book club for The Lesbian Review – a website dedicated to reviewing F/F fiction and sometimes non fiction and movies.
This is a general chat group about lesfic. All lesfic lovers are welcome here! (This group is open to women, men, non-binary people (cis, trans or fluid) straight, gay, lesbian and all the other colours of the rainbow.) It’s a place for readers to join talk about what they’re reading and loving.”
“Our goal is to promote authors to readers of lesbian fiction. We welcome book releases, and new as well as established authors to make readers, fellow authors, and fans aware of the books that are out there for their enjoyment.
Every other weekend or so we have an author’s grilling where we have two days of Q&A’s known as THE GRILLING to promote an author.”
“This is a group to share our stories new and old. Short stories, trunk novels, whatever authors would like to share here. You don’t need to be an author to join! Anyone who loves lesfic is welcome here.”
“This group is for readers of lesfic interested in providing honest online reviews of works of lesbian themed fiction and for lesfic authors willing to submit their books to these readers in exchange for honest reviews.
AUTHORS PLEASE NOTE: You will engage directly with your readers here to effect the transaction of getting them their book(s). After you let them know you’ve sent it, thank them only. Regardless of the review left, please do not engage with the reviewer here or where she left the review. We want this to be a safe space for readers. Thank you.”
“Books about Lesbian Fiction. Whether you read them or write them, let us know about them here! Discuss them, post them, tell us what you LIKE or DISlike about Lesbian Fiction or Lesfic!”
“This is a bulletin board to post news about audiobooks with lesbian content. Listeners, authors, publishers are welcome to post. Reviews and recommendations are especially welcome. Audiobooks should have a lesbian main character or should be focused on lesbian content.”
“This is a community of readers and writers in support of lesbian fiction. We do not discriminate against readers or writers that fall anywhere on the gender/sexuality spectrum.”
10. Lesfic ARC Club
“Lesfic ARC Club is a group for lesfic fans to find free advanced reader copies in exchange for honest reviews.”
“This is a discussion group for Women Loving Women (WLW) themed mystery, thriller and suspense novels and true-crime non-fiction works. This is an open, inclusive, friendly place where fans of mystery, thriller and suspense genres and all related sub-genre works that include WLW characters can chat about their favorites, ask questions of the writer-members, and a place where writers of said genres can promote on designated promotion days.”
“A book club that will cover lesbian good reads. From romance and mystery and all that in between lets enjoy and talk authors and plots. Twice a month we will discuss a book that will be posted in advance. Please no spoilers.”
“Kindle Unlimited LGBT Fiction is a place for authors to share their kindle books and ebooks and a place for Kindle Unlimited subscribers to find great LGBTQ fiction. Read the Rainbow!”
“If you’re an author and you want to promote your book, then this is the group for you. If you’re a reader and you’re looking for some good books to read, then this is the group for you. Join us, talk to us, meet us, and along the way, you might make some new friends.”
“This group is for readers, authors, and bloggers to celebrate and share the wonderful world of FF and lesbian fiction/romance. <3”

About Niamh Murphy
Hi there! I’m Niamh Murphy and I’m a bestselling author of adventure books with lesbian main characters!
I tell romantic and exciting stories of gripping adventure and epic fantasy. My favourite places to explore are historical settings, science fiction landscapes, and fantasy worlds. My stories involve exciting characters such as knights, pirates, vampires, and mermaids. But I also tell more down-to-earth stories involving teenage angst, coming out, and exploring lesbian relationships for the first time.
I most enjoy rewriting fairy tales for the modern reader or re-telling mythical stories of old with a sapphic twist. But whatever the genre I choose to write in, my stories always include romance, love, and a lesbian main character.
