(For general questions on the site, please check the FAQ.)
Right now, LGBTQ Reads is open to the following contributions:
- Exclusive cover and/or excerpt reveals for books with at least one POV character who IDs under the LGBTQIAP+ umbrella (Please include designer credit for cover reveals)
- Guest posts (see below)
- “Around the Blogosqueer” features on an all-queer site, review blog, or book club
- “The Colorful Catalog” posts if you have at least five LGBTQIAP+ works published that do not all star cis m/m pairings
Please send any pitches to LGBTQReads@gmail.com (making sure to include title, author, category, genre, and representation/pairing), and yes, you must be the one to provide a pitch; I am not here to come up with them for you. If you need ideas, consider:
- Five books you love in your genre and why
- Your writing playlist
- Things you learned while writing your book
- Why the representation in your book is meaningful to you
- Having someone else interview you, preferably another LGBTQIAP+ author
For anthologies, I am always open to posts featuring snippets from each contributor on their story, as seen here. (Anthologies must have at least three stories/essays with main characters who ID under the LGBTQIAP+ umbrella, and posts are to contain commentary from those authors only.)
Just want us to share a teaser? Send your Instagram-ready teaser to LGBTQReads@gmail.com with a little info about your book (including the category, genre, representation, and pairing where applicable) and I’ll post it on the next available Tuesday.
Please do not e-mail regarding having your book featured in a spotlight or being interviewed by me; for the foreseeable future I will be selecting these titles and authors.
