A Shout Out by Me

First off, I want to send a loud and proud 'SHOUT OUT' to all the new Readers and Followers!

Thanks for stopping by my literary sandbox, and spending a little of your precious time with me.

Ugh, did that just sound a wee bit too much like Mr. Rogers?  

My role through The Rainbow Reader is to advance the genre, help the authors to reach a wider audience [that means sell lots of books], and have a little fun in the process.

I'm a fan of lesbian-centric literature, as I'm sure most of you are [duh].  Over the years, I've been lucky enough to collect an extensive library, and I'm always looking to expand to new authors, new books, and new ideas.  If you have any suggestions or requests, whether it's a classic or a new release; a celebrated author or an emerging talent; maybe even an action, thriller, romance, mystery, short story, or anthology . . . send me a note, and I'll try to queue up a review for you.

Also, if you agree with me, let me know.

If you don't then you can sh . . . just kidding, let me know as well. 

I won't always be on the mark, and I'll probably miss something important or just get it wrong on occasion.

The bottom line is that dialogue is good.

I only ask that people keep things civil - I try to maintain a 'do no harm' philosophy, and want this to be a positive experience for everyone who wants to play in the sandbox with me.

So, with that said, kick your shoes off, let me know what's on your mind, and what author or book you'd like to see in the on deck circle.

Yours in mixed metaphors and dangling participles,

Salem West

  1. It's not really in the thread of what you've been reviewing, but have you tried Sarah Waters? She's my favourite lesbian author. Fingersmith and Tipping the Velvet are my favourite. Emma Donoghue (try Kissing the Witch) and Jeanette Winterson (Oranges are not the Only Fruit is a classic) are also high on the list.
