I love getting review copies of books! Please keep contacting me about them. I do, however, have some stipulations on what I’ll review. This is, after all, Casey the CANADIAN Lesbrarian. What I mean by this is I only accept copies of and review books that
a) are written by a current or former Canadian citizen/resident and/or an Indigenous person from Turtle Island (North America) AND
b) are written by LGBTQ2IA+ women or non-binary folks and/or feature LGBTQ2IA+ women or non-binary folks.
I’m mostly interested in fiction, both in the form of novels and short stories, but also poetry and the occasional nonfiction title. I love all genres, so please send me fantasy, science fiction, mystery, literary fiction, and everything in between! My goal is for this blog to be as diverse as possible: particularly, I want to highlight queer and/or trans writers of colour and trans women as well as authors from different parts of Canada (i.e., I do not want this site dominated by writers from Toronto, as much as I love some literary Torontonians). I’m especially interested in featuring two-spirit or queer-identified Indigenous writers and characters; any suggestions would be very helpful!
If you’re wondering what I’ve read and what’s on my list, check out the Books I’ve Read; Books I’ve Yet to Read page and have a look at my Goodreads. Also, look for the Facebook page for my blog–you can find out about new posts that way. I use Twitter a bunch too, so follow me there!
If you’d like to have your–or someone else’s!–book reviewed here, would like to tell me about resources/authors/blogs/etc., or have any questions, email me at stepaniukcasey [at] gmail.com and put “Canadian lesbrarian” in the subject. Happy reading!
