None of us can get enough of lesbian romance and some of the best lesbian fiction ever is being produced at the moment. More and more books are moving to the mainstream shelves and big names like Barnes & Noble are stocking LGBT fiction alongside publishers such as Bloomsbury who are actively looking for YA fiction with LGBT main characters.
But with all this fantastic fiction being produced, it can be a bit of a strain on the purse strings! So I wanted to make a list of the best newsletters you can sign up to, to get free lesbian fiction sent straight to your inbox.Check out this list of 8 ways to get free lesbian fiction sent to your inbox! #writeLGBTQ #PromoLGBTQ #LesbianFiction Click To Tweet
As with many posts on this website, this list is a work in progress and will always be updated, so stay tuned for more updates!
1. My LesFic
Started by Harper Bliss more than a couple of years ago now and now managed by the wonderful Anne Hagan, MyLesFic.com was the first newsletter focused solely on discounts for lesbian fiction.
Every book is vetted to ensure high quality and the validity of the discounts, plus the organisers go to particular effort to ensure that the discounts offered are not just available to those in the UK and the US.
So this site is especially useful if you happen to be outside of those countries!
2. Les FicNow
A great complimentary site to MyLesFic, LesFicNow has a simple sign up and will send you a weekly digest of all the books either free or discounted that week.
However, there may be books on this list which are only on discount in the UK and/or the US. So watch out for that!
Also, the organisers are back from a hiatus and working to make the newsletter better than ever!
Bookbub is a huge behemoth, and advertising on the platform has already overtaken Amazon in the esteem of some authors. With just about every genre out there, it is a shame that lesbian fiction is bundled under LGBT.
However, it doesn’t cost a penny to sign up so as long as you can stand wading through all the lovely bare chests of all the models on the front covers of the m/m books (like little Greek statues, so they are) then you can find some free lesbian stories in amongst the others.
It’s well worth a look.
Again this is a huge site dedicated to highlighting books of all genres.
However, like Bookbub when you sign up to their newsletter, you are given the option of specifying the genre that you are most interested in.
This means you get the chance to choose LGBT.
Again, there is a high disparity between MLM fiction and WLW, with MLM dominating the market. However, it really is worth checking those emails as they come in to make sure you aren’t missing out on the next lesbian bestseller!
5. Queer Sci-Fi
If you are into your genre fiction then there really is no place better for your space pirate lesbian hit!
Again there are all the other letters of the wonderful LGBTQIA+ spectrum supported in this mailing list, which can be fantastic news. But it might also mean you get your hopes up only to find there are no lesbians this week.
But again, it is well worth signing up if you like anything that could fall vaguely into the speculative or fantastical.
This site is quickly becoming a go-to for many authors and readers alike.
Their mailing list is focused on lesbian books, specifically on new releases rather than discounts.
However, they now have a monthly sale AND a monthly giveaway, so make sure you don’t miss out on your chance to grab discounts and even win yourself some new books!
8. LGBT Romance
Started in 2017, LGBT-Romance.com sends out two newsletters a week focused on new releases, discounts, and giveaways. As well as ebooks this is one of the only lists to include audio-books.
However, the site is a little light on the ‘L’ in the LGBT and features mostly m/m romance. But it is still only a small newsletter and with time it should grow to showcase a greater number of diverse authors across the whole spectrum – especially if we all help to give the site the subscribers it needs!
