Most free and/or cheap ebooks fall into one of four categories:
Classic literature

  • Trashy romance
  • Bad trashy romance
  • Self-published works of varying quality
Sometimes it's important to read for quantity and not quality, which is why the following books are all category 2: trashy lesbian romance. Concentration of sex scenes and/or subsequent U-hauling may vary.
Quality of cover design may also vary.
Taming The Wolff, by Del Robertson - Featuring a rogue pirate with the sea as her mistress and a woman abducted and held for ransom, Taming the Wolff is the lesbian version of all those pirate-riddled Harlequins your grandmother possibly read and may have lent you when you were definitely too young and also too gay for them.
Turn Me Out, by T. Ariez - When Angel starts to realize she has feelings for her best friend, Ace, she decides to risk everything by pursuing her as the two overcome challenges to stud/stud romance. (Sistahs on the Shelf also recently posted an interview with author T. Ariez.)
Angel Food and Devil Dogs, by Liz Bradbury - Part mystery, part lesbian romance and more than occasionally hilarious, Angel Food and Devil Dogs is more smut with a bit of mystery than mystery with a bit of smut.
Fitting In, by Robin Roseau - Nicole, an introverted computer programmer with cerebral palsy, meets Alexandra, an athletic beautiful older woman, at a party. The two fly together, but their differences, families and competitive natures threaten to drive them apart.
Stolen Moments, edited by Stacia Seaman and Radclyffe - This lesbian erotica collection won the 2005 Lambda Award for best anthology, and features contributors such as Karen L. Perry, Clio Jones, Renée Strider, J.C. Chen, Lesley Davis, Meghan O'Brien, Ronica Black and more.
Never Wake, by Gabrielle Goldsby - The entire world falls asleep except for Emma Webster, love interest Troy Nanson, and a scary murderer. Opposites attract, have hot lesbian sex and then try to save the world.
Forever Tangled: A Collection of Poems and Stories from the Heart and between the Thighs, by Monique Thomas -Forever Tangled is a short book of erotic poetry by debut author Monique Thomas. Poems include "Fuck Me in the Morning," "Wet" and "No Chaser."
Second Chances, by M.J. Duncan - After a bitter break up and eight years apart, sports journalist Charlie Bennett runs into her ex Mackayla when she accepts a guest lecturer position at a small university. Charlie sees their encounter as a chance to live happily ever after. Macayla doesn't.
Debut, by Catherine Ennis - Abbie and Tracy run a women's retreat on a mountain. Tracy decides she needs a change, but will Abbie convince her to stay? This short story was originally published in 1996.
Carmilla, by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu - This classic 1872 gothic novella is all about lesbian vampires. Laura's family takes in Carmilla, who spends most of the day inside asleep, doesn't like religion. seems to appear in a portrait hundreds of years old and has a penchant for biting Laura on the chest, kissing her and telling her, "You are mine, you shall be mine, and you and I are one for ever."

Mary Lou Heintz (GCLS board member) acted as proxy for author Liz Bradbury
and accepted the GCLS Award for Mystery at the Golden Crown
2013 Conference in Dallas, Texas in June, 2013. Here is Mary Lou is accepting the award for Liz.

Here’s Liz’s acceptance speech as delivered by Mary Lou:

Liz Bradbury couldn’t be here at the Convention, so she asked me to be her proxy: Here’s what Liz asked me to say:

Thank you for this honor. - Golden Crown gives us an opportunity to all come together in solidarity and support.

So reach out, offer your help, work together, be a mentor, share in group readings, extend your hand to other Lesbian writers, ...do it today.

Meet and speak with, and learn from everyone here, not just those people you already know. Put aside the boundaries of theme and experience, or publishing company affiliation.

We aren’t in competition with each other and we should never act that way. Because when we work together, we make the genre stronger and improve the craft.

That’s where we, as sister’s in the art of Lesbian writing,
find our greatest strength!

Angel Food and Devil Dogs - Description:

As private detective Maggie Gale works to prove the innocence of a mentally challenged pinball wizard who's been arrested for murder, she is called to college president Max Bouchet's office to discuss the suspicious suicide of a gay professor. There, Maggie shakes hands with the attractive Dr. Kathryn Anthony, who smiles at her with a faint but unmistakable touch of lust. Maggie is hired and meets a collection of quirky suspects, one of whom might just be a murderer. Maggie's humorous and caring friends and family support her as she works against escalating danger, and toward escalating romantic encounters with Kathryn. Will Maggie untangle both mysteries? Will the sexual tension swirling around Maggie and Kathryn pull them together? Or will the murderer target Maggie before she gets either chance?
