If you are looking to get your hands on some of the best lesbian fiction books around, completely free, then look no further! I’m about to show you 5 great places you can get your hands on PermaFree lesbian books.
Permafree books are simply books that are permanently free. As an author myself, I know how important PermaFree books are to many authors marketing efforts. Authors often use this as a way of getting their books out into the world so that readers, like you, will find them and take a chance on them.Check out this amazing list of places to get PermaFree Lesbian books and wlw Fiction! #LesFic #LGBTQPromo Click To Tweet
So, don’t feel bad about downloading free lesbian fiction. It is often the best way to get to know a new author, and if you share their free book with others then that can mean even more people find their work.

You might be looking for lesbian crime novels, lesbian romance, or lesbian young adult fiction. Whatever your favourite genre is, you’ll be able to find something you’ll love on one of these sites – completely free!
Many ebook retailers, such as Barnes & Noble, offer free ebooks on their sites. However, there are SO MANY retailers and apps I haven’t included in this list because, for whatever reason, they have not made it simple to narrow down which of their books are BOTH free AND LGBTQIA+.
In this list, I have included ONLY sites and apps on which you are able to easily find free lesbian novels and wlw through sorting, categorisation, or a simple search, without having to scroll through endless junk for hours on end.
Amazon seem to have become a little secretive about this. Either that or they don’t know how to make the most of a fantastic asset.
Either way, alongside the usual bestseller lists, there is a hidden bestseller list of all the free ebooks you can download. This list included all the books which are free on that day only, as well as all the books which are set to be permanently free by their authors.
The biggest problem with this is that it is not easy to find and in fact if you are navigating Amazon on the app or on a phone or tablet, then it is simply impossible to discover.
So, head over to a desktop, navigate to the bestseller list of your chosen genre, be it lesbian romance, or simple LGBT fiction. Right at the top of the page it will say something like; Top 100 Books in Lesbian Fiction… next to this it will also say: Top 100 Free Books in Lesbian Fiction.

Smashwords have been a small-time rival to Amazon for a few years now. Some people have fallen in and out of favour with them, but overall I have found them a useful site to use to publish my books when I want them to permanently free.
Their navigation is far easier than Amazon and it is a really simple process to narrow down your search to LGBT fiction that is also free.
However, I will say that the quality of the fiction on this site is not always of the highest standard and it is very rare to get books published here from a publishing house.
The website is tricky to navigate, and if you are looking specifically for free lesbian fiction (and if you are here, then I assume you are!) then your best bet is to download the app.
The search function on the Kobo app is far more streamlined an it is a really straightforward process to narrow down what you are looking for. But out of all my recommendations on this blog, I would say this is the weakest site for free lesbian books.
This option is really only available as an app from the Google Play store. So as far as I know, unless you have an android phone, you really can’t access this option easily.
But for those of you who can, Google Play Books does have a nice and straightforward search function. You can’t really narrow down the genre to identify Lesbian + Free, however you can do a simple google search for free lesbian fiction or free LGBT fiction and it will give a list of books that fall into that category (it seems like such a simple task and yet so many sites just don’t offer this capability!).
Prolific Works is a unique platform for readers to access exclusive sneak peeks, advance previews, and special giveaways.
This gives you the chance to discover authors you’ll love, who bring you the stories you want to read. You can filter by category and genre, meaning you can hook up with LGBTQIA+ authors and download exclusive freebies before anyone else!
So that is five ways to get hold of PermaFree lesbian books!
If you found this blog useful, then why not share it and let other people in on this tips and tricks.
What did you think? Do you know of any other sites or apps that offer free ebooks AND have a way to narrow down the search for lesbian fiction? I would LOVE to hear your thoughts and suggestions, so why not list them in the comments.
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.
