For this week’s Sapphic Book Bingo category, I would like you to read a book by a new author to give some attention to writers who are just starting out.
For the sake of this reading challenge, I’m defining “newbie authors” as a writer who has published only one or two novel-length books.
In this post, I put together a list of 100+ new authors of sapphic books for you, and I’m constantly adding to it as I find new authors, so keep checking back.
