This photo was taken last month for the #seaofbooks tag in Instagram (created by flipages) And it’s contemporary edition. I’d post another one that’s mixed with tons of genres soon.

The Winner’s Curse  

funqueerlitzine:

We are launching a new lit zine focusing on awesome stories of all genres featuring queer protagonists. For example, a story about a lesbian pirate who is seduced by a siren, or an asexual detective solving muder mysteries, or a trans scientist building sentient robots, or an agendered person travelling the world. The zine will include stories, poems, comics, and art all revolving around a positive portrayal of queerness, with an emphasis on entertainment and creativity.

But for now – WE NEED A NAME!

We’re asking you to suggest up to five names for this zine. Names should reflect our mission without using any specific queer words in the name.

The person who’s name we choose will win four books that fit our mission of awesome stories featuring queer protagonists:

And then five random people who entered will get a participation prize including kindle ebook codes and coupons to purchase ebooks from indie authors like Sarah Diemer

To enter:

Contest will last until August 9th. We hope you’ll all enter!!

“I write because, as wonderful as life is - and it is truly wonderful - it isn’t enough. It does not, for example, contain dragons. I find this unsatisfactory. So I read. And I write.” - Laini Taylor

About the Reader



J is a 25-year-old reader and writer from the middle of the Bible belt in the US. She has an obsessive love of YA lit because of how much freedom it allows for mixing genres, going beyond genres, exploring diversity, and how the characters and stories are so full of hope, no matter how dark they get. Because she loves YA so much, she tends to be overly harsh on books that are just the same overused tropes repackaged in a shiny new cover. She regrets deciding to write this in third person. When not reading or writing, J is mindlessly scrolling her tumblr dash, playing video games, and cuddling her puppies.
