Mystery, Romance, Young Adult and Paranormal -- Bella Books authors contributed nine finalists titles for the 26th Annual Lambda Literary Awards. In addition, Katherine V. Forrest's highly anticipated High Desert, from our sister press Spinsters Ink, is a finalist in the mystery category. Authors include notable veteran writers and former Lammy winners and finalists as well as two debut authors, Marie Castle and Diane Wood, and first time finalists Jenna Rae and D Jordan Redhawk.
Congratulations to all of our authors who create and write imaginative, compelling and spellbinding stories. Further congratulations to the team of women who stand behind the books: editors, proofreaders, typesetters and graphic designers.
Our deepest thanks go to the readers who continue to support books written for and about lesbians. You are why we get up every day!
