For this week’s category of the Sapphic Book Bingo, read a sapphic book by an author who writes full-time. Not a lot of authors are able to support themselves with their writing, especially not in a niche genre such as sapphic/women-loving-women fiction, so I thought full-time writers of sapphic fiction deserve a category of their own.
I put together a list of full-time writers below. Some of these authors retired from their day jobs; others gave them up to write full-time, as I did in 2013, and now make a living off their writing. Most of them write sapphic books exclusively, while some also write M/F or M/M romances or books in other genres.

Sapphic books by full-time writers
Instead of sharing 15 books recommendations, I thought I would list all full-time writers of sapphic books I could find. There are 60 authors on the list below. They are listed alphabetically by the author’s first name, and the link will take you to their website or a webstore where you’ll find a list of their books.

What about Karin Kallmaker and Radclyffe? And does anybody know if EJ Noyes is a full-time author?
I just added Karin and Radclyffe. I can’t believe I forgot them! EJ doesn’t write full-time, as far as I know.
What about Katherine V. Forrest?
I know she’s an editor too, but I would still consider her a full-time writer. I’ll add her. Thanks!
Glad Radclyffe is not included. She’s such a repetitive and formulaic writer she does a disservice to term writer
Actually, I just added her since she does write full-time. I let readers be the judge of what authors they like or dislike.
Does she not own Bold Stroke Books? And if so, does this not disqualify here?
Yes, she does. But I bet she works way more than a 40-hour week and could easily make a living from her writing, without owning a publishing house. I’ll leave it up to readers to decide if they want to pick one of her books for this category or not.
Reading “Rescued Heart”
Radclyffe is a pioneer and lesfic godmother to many many of the writers on Jae’s list. (Even Homer nodded!). But Jae’s list has omitted the great J. M. Redmann.
C.A. Popovich (BSB) is another fulltime writer
Thanks! I just added her!
