Sapphic Book Bingo 2024

Sapphic Book Bingo 2024

Type of cross-promotion:

Reading challenge

Description:

The Sapphic Book Bingo is a year-long reading challenge with two different bingo cards readers can choose, the regular card and the Book Unicorn card.

There are weekly posts with recommendations for each square of the bingo cards, but readers can also read any sapphic book that fits one of the category descriptions to fill their bingo card.

Thousands of readers are participating, plus many readers use the weekly book recommendation posts to find books for their to-be-read lists, even if they aren’t into reading challenges.

Date:

January 1 – December 31, 2024

Deadline:

The Sapphic Book Bingo is a huge organizational endeavor, which requires me to put together the book lists for each post months before the event starts, so the deadline has already passed.

However, there are other ways to use the Sapphic Book Bingo to market your books—click the “find out more” button below.

Genre:

Any genre, as long as it’s sapphic fiction

Requirements:

Sharing with your readers via social media and your newsletter (provided you have one)

Type of cross-promotion:

Blog post

Description:

One of the squares of the Sapphic Book Bingo encourages readers to read a book by a new or new-to-them author. In April, I’ll feature new authors in one of the book bingo posts on my blog.

“New author” is defined as having published no more than two full-length novels. I’ll promote the post to my blog subscribers, on social media, in my Facebook group, and in my Goodreads group.

Date:

April 4, 2024

Deadline:

April 2, 2024

Genre:

Any genre of sapphic fiction

Requirements:

  • Share a link to the post with your readers via social media and your newsletter (provided you have one)
  • IMPORTANT: This promo is only for new authors who have published no more than 2 novels. If you publish under multiple pen names and have published more than 2 novels across ALL pen names, you are not a new author. This spot is meant to highlight and help authors just starting out, not authors who are trying to establish a new pen name. I offer other opportunities to more experienced authors.
