Spreading Holiday Cheer

This holiday season will be very different for so many of us. While I Heart Lesfic won’t be hosting a mega sale for the holidays, I still want to do something to help put a smile on readers’ faces.

So, I’ve come up with what I hope will be a fun idea.

I’ve asked authors to send a holiday photo and message for readers.

At the bottom of the page, you can vote for your favorite holiday photo. Ends Jan. 3rd.

And, here you can enter for a chance to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card. Ends Jan. 3rd.

Now for the photos:

Wishing you fabulous and festive fun times and a new year filled with luscious lesfic!

This holiday season I hope you practice the art of kindness, promote health and happiness, and read plenty of books that will make you think, feel, and discuss.


Dorothy Rice Bennett 

Hope you have a wonderful yet safe holiday season this year!


Lucy Bexley

We did it, fam! The end of 2020 is in sight and we can celebrate change and hope for the coming year! The lesfic community (and reading all the excellent books that people wrote) got me through 2020! Here’s to 2021 and beyond! -Lucy

May we all be lights in the world.

Happy holidays to all the wonderful lesfic readers out there! Charlotte and I want to say thank you for your support all year long, and we wish you a happy, healthy, Trump-free 2021!

PS. Check out my Christmas short story, “First Christmas” in the amazing holiday anthology, Unwrap these Presents, published by the great folks at Ylva!


K.B. Draper

Wishing everyone all the good things this holiday season! Oh, say for example … that it doesn’t take you a half bag of treats and 153 tries to get one non-blurry holiday picture of your pet in a Santa headband. But more importantly that it’s a safe and happy time for you and your families. Much love, K.B. Draper


Carolyn Elizabeth

Happy Holidays and much love from our family to yours.

Read hard!

Carolyn Elizabeth and Ripley

2020 has taught us how precious life is. This holiday season I choose to enjoy the little moments.

Merry Christmas everybunny!


Alison Naomi Holt

Whatever holiday you celebrate this season, I wish you a loving and joyful one. If you find yourself alone, don’t hesitate to write me at AnHolt@Denabipublishiing.com and we can chat and hopefully bring a spark of happiness to each other’s lives.

Clare Lydon

If you haven’t tried one yet, pep up your Christmas with a Mince Pie Martini. 50ml dark rum, 50ml apple juice & 12.5ml mince pie liqueur. I promise, it’s delicious! Plus, if you’re in need of a festive romance, check out Christmas In Mistletoe. I promise ladies falling in love, lashings of snow & twinkly lights. Just add chocolate.

Bye bye, 2020. Lock the door on your way out. Here’s to 2021 being a lot effing better, right?


Kitty McIntosh

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Scotland. I wish you and your families a peaceful holiday season and hope for a brighter and better future for us all. Love Kitty McIntosh.


Miranda MacLeod

Wishing you a warm and bright holiday season and a happy New Year.


TB Markinson

Wishing everyone a lovely and safe holiday and really hoping 2021 isn’t as sucky as 2020.


Joi Miner

Holiday gatherings are my favorite because they provide so much inspiration for my writing: the love, the drama, the plot twists. Lol. And, I like my stories like I like my egg nog and my heels, spicy, and spiked.


Jamey Moody

Leo and I say Merry Christmas to you all! I know this has been such a hard year, but for me it’s been amazing. I published my first book and followed that with three others. The readers have been wonderful and fellow authors have reached out and connected. This community is remarkable and goodness can come out of troubles. Thank you all for making this a wonderfully unusual and unforgettable year!


HP Munro

2020 has been the strangest of years, I hope that for even a short period of time reading has provided some respite and refuge. Have a lovely Christmas with your loved ones whether in person or virtually and a fantastic Hogmanay.  Here’s to a healthier, happier and more sane 2021.


Bryce Oakley

This year was full of high-highs and low-lows and I am grateful each and every person who has ever picked up one of my books. Stay healthy and safe and take care of yourself throughout these holidays and we’ll make it out okay.


Renee Roman

May the year ahead be happy and full of laughter. Create beautiful memories with those you love.

Love and light, Renee Roman


Cindy Rizzo

I hope everyone has the kind of holiday they were hoping for, whether that’s quiet, alone time or raucous family fun.  I wish everyone peace, happiness and fulfillment in 2021.


Belinda Roddie

A safe and happy Yuletude to all from Belinda Roddie, author of Insert Self-Discovery Here, and their beautiful boy, Binx!


Riley Rose

Hi Awesome IHL Readers! I wanted to wish you the happiest of holidays even if you’re in a galaxy far, far away or vacationing on Risa. Thank you so much for supporting Lesfic authors! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it and hope you all have a safe and wonderful holiday! And don’t forget to celebrate Life Day on Kashyyyk!

Merry Christmas to all readers – from the English countryside

Christmas is a traditional time of good cheer – and good deeds – here in England. And I like to think of animals sharing in this, as much as possible. Even though they don’t understand the details of the holidays, I feel that they can still enjoy the spirit! Martha seems to love wearing things, as long as they’re relatively small. She certainly is at home exploring the Christmas tree and presents. Those of us who have pets, know well how lucky we are to have them in our lives. So, here’s Happy Holidays to all the animals (including the humans)!


S.R. Silcox

We hope your holidays are filled with lots of toys, great food, and heaps of belly scratches. And our Mums wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays too. Love from Daisy and Ruby (and our mums, S.R. Silcox and her wife).


Jen Silver

‘Tis the season to enjoy more reading…and dream of happier times to come! Hope everyone can find some joy over the Christmas period after the strange year we’ve all experienced.


Marian Snowe & Ruby Grandin

Happy holidays from New Hampshire in the US! Our celebrations might be virtual, but that means we’re cramming even more love into them. Stay safe, stay healthy, wear a mask, and give your pets a Christmas cuddle on our behalf.


Ellie Spark

Wishing you a holiday season full of love, laughter and happiness. May 2021 bring everyone good health and joyful times. With much love, Ellie. x


Claire Stevenson

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas and New Year – let’s hope it’s better in 2021.


Cade Haddock Strong

Books, books
They fill my shelves and various nooks.
Whether you light a menorah or a tree,
It doesn’t matter to me.

Whether you live in the mountains or by the sea,
Or you’re in the midst of spring or fall,
My message is,
More books for all!


Kimberly Todd

Happy Holidays! Hope you get to spend some quality time with your loved ones. Stay safe.

Lots of love,
