WLW & Lesbian Fiction Indie Authors (F/F Fiction Crossword Challenge #20)

lesbian indie authors

It’s time for another publisher’s edition puzzle, and this one features f/f indie authors!

In the bigger publishing world, “indie author” often means authors who either self-publish or who publish their books with a small, independent press, apart from the Big 5 publishing houses. Since f/f publishers are pretty much all small presses, I included only self-published authors in this puzzle, though. You’ll find books by popular authors such as Harper Bliss, Clare Lydon, Amanda Radley, MJ Duncan, Lynn Galli, Lise Gold, and many more.


You can still solve previous puzzles & win ebooks!
