TRR'S FIRST ANNIVERSARY



BIENVENU!
WELCOME TO THE RAINBOW READER!


One year ago today, The Rainbow Reader stumbled onto the thriving, thumping midway of the lesbian literature scene. 

Like any good roller coaster ride, things started out a bit slow, but picked up speed as a few willing and even more unsuspecting authors leapt onto the knuckle whitening TRR Tilt-a-Whirl. 

Looking back to that cold morning twelve months ago, it's an honor and a privilege to know that 30,000 visitors have accepted my invitation to step in, strap on, and go for a ride.

This blog wouldn't be possible without the authors, readers, publishers, commenters, guest bloggers, other reviewers, and that creepy guy from Kansas who coincidentally forgets how to spell Bobby Jindal's name every Monday evening.

As an expression of my most sincere gratitude, the first 600 visitors today will receive a literary cupcake  liberally dusted with rainbow sprinkles and a tasty cup of Lucy's Lesfic Punch, courtesy of Super Squirrel Bakeries.



Thank you all 
for your support 
and encouragement!

  1. Well, whoop dee doo, we havin' us a par-tay!
    Since there's all these cupcakes...don't you think we might need something a little more substantial? snacks or something sketchy with pork fat?

    I'll pony up for some chips.

  9. Even though I've already stopped by the FB thing, I wanted to post a Happy Birthday wish here, too. The dress and you in it might have to become poster material. ;-) Who knew you could still buy gloves that long? Best wishes for many more years and many more reviews! Thanks for being here.
