WLW & lesbian books from Ylva Publishing – (F/F Fiction Crossword Challenge #2)

WLW & Lesbian Books from Ylva Publishing


If you have taken a look at the schedule for the F/F Fiction Crossword Challenge, you know that I put together puzzles for several publishing houses that publish WLW & lesbian books. Every publisher whose authors submitted enough clues will get their own crossword puzzle—and indie authors will get a puzzle too.

Today, I’d like to start with my own publisher, so here’s the Ylva Publishing crossword puzzle.

If you are discovering the F/F Fiction Crossword Challenge only now, read up on the rules and prizes, then come back here and try to solve the Ylva puzzle.

You can either download the crossword grid by right-clicking on the picture below or download the PDF with the crossword grid and the clues. You don’t necessarily need a printer to play. You don’t need to send in the filled-out puzzle to play; all you need to do is email me the solution phrase.
