10 Butch Women We Fell For 

The Lesbian Review Podcast 

Sheena is joined by fellow reviewer April as they talk amazing butch women in fiction.  

Sheena’s Choices 

Yvonne from Valley Of The Dead by Chrystal M Romero 

Gay Pride weekend this year was bound to go down in history because of the nation's advances in equality. Across California's Silicon Valley, couples gathered for numerous weddings, and people showed their pride at a downtown park. Even the usual religious protesters failed to ruin the celebration. Unfortunately, history would not remember this as the day of celebrating equality but as the day the zombies overran the world. Revelry quickly turned to chaos as the crowds fought for their lives. 

Yvonne Martin just wanted to relax at home this year, but a frantic call from her best friend set her on a terrifying mission to save him. Along the way, they are thrown together with Captain Jacqueline Rhodes and her partner, the last surviving officers of the police force. Together with some of their neighbors, they must make their escape from this Valley of the Dead.

Zane from Soul Mates by KA Moll 

Do you believe in soul mates? Do you believe that somewhere there’s person who makes you whole? If you ran into each other at a coffee shop or on the street—would you know her? Would you have the courage to put yourself out there—to risk it all for love? 

Zane was sexually assaulted just days before her high school graduation—targeted because she was a lesbian. The horrific nature of that violation has left her unable to engage in intimate relationships. They were bullies and as far as she’s concerned, they destroyed her life. 

When Jaina’s mother was incarcerated, she and her brother were placed in foster care. The years spent lingering in that system have left her battling lifelong issues of abandonment. Jaina trusts no one enough to risk being hurt again. Sex is fine, but relationships are out of the question. 

When circumstances result in Jaina embarking on a search for her bio-family, her path will cross with Zane’s. Both recognize the other as a soul mate, but will their love be strong enough to overcome a lifetime of baggage?

Kate Delafield from Amateur City by Katherine V. Forrest 

Tough and demanding LAPD Detective Kate Delafield is the leader of the investigation into a highrise office building murder. The case is intriguing but routine - until Kate interviews the only witness, Ellen O'Neil.  

When Ellen O'Neil took her new job over the objections of her lover, she wasn't expecting to become embroiled in murder. The curiosity that Kate Delafield rouses is equally unexpected. But it is never far from Ellen's mind that she is merely a name on an interview sheet to the tight-lipped detective. 

Kate's thin trail of clues are enough to convince her that she is looking for an amateur, and amateurs are notoriously unpredictable and dangerous. She finds her path increasingly intersecting with that of Ellen O'Neil, who is proving unpredictable and dangerous in a far more personal way.  

Amateur City is the first novel in the compelling Kate Delafield mystery series that has gripped readers all over the world.

As fate would have it, Dez is eventually assigned as Jaylynn's Field Training Officer. Having been burned in the past by getting romantically involved with another cop, Dez has a steadfast rule she has abided by for nine years: Cops are off limits. 

But as Jaylynn and Dez get to know one another, a strong friendship forms. Will Dez break her cardinal rule and take a chance on love with Jaylynn, or will she remain forever gun shy?

Curves Welcome: Turn Uncertainty into Opportunity

December 21, 2017

Curves Welcome –Turn Uncertainty into Opportunity

Novelist and motivational blogger Suzie Carr analyzes uncertainty and its powerful effect on life. She examines those who have the ability to take a bad situation and create a good outcome from it.

Uncertainty is as much a part of life as breathing. Most of us fear uncertainty on some level. We may fear things like getting into a car accident on the way to the grocery store, losing our job that we love, finding out we didn’t get that promotion we sought, missing out on a fun vacation because of a lack of funds, having our car not start on an important meeting day. You’re not alone if you’ve had these thoughts. But what makes us have these thoughts in the first place?

Some experts might say it’s out intolerance of uncertainty that causes us to fear it.

Interestingly enough, many of us view uncertainty as a bad thing. We attribute a bad outcome to its presence. But what if that uncertainty is necessary for you to get to a new place, a better place? What if these uncertain situations create good outcomes in the end?

Tune in and see how bad things can evolve into good.

 

A Note to Listeners:

Can Butch Women Be Feminist?

December 11, 2017

Can Butch Women Be Feminist? 

Ask A Butch 

Today Sheena is joined by Amy and Lise to chat about whether or not a butch women can be feminist.

About Amy Herman-Pall 

Amy’s been out for over 25 years, but it took her some time to accept and identify with the label ‘butch.’ She’s worked in several different traditionally male jobs, from carpentry and woodworking, to truck driving, and in each she’s simply proven that a woman can do as well as a man. 

As far as other butch stereotypes go, there are some she fits and some she never will. But she’s found her match in the femme that claimed her.

About Lise MacTague 

Lise MacTague is a spec fit author. She has been known to play ice hockey and build awesome cosplay guns that she sells on her etsy account. 

She co-hosts the podcast Let Geek Out! and she does occasional reviews for The Lesbian Review.

About Sheena 

Sheena struggled for most of her youth with coming out. It was only at 22 when she met her wife that she could no longer deny her attraction to women. A large part of why she struggled had to do with the misconceptions and stereotypes of being a lesbian. 

So she and her wife started to the show Les Talk About It where these myths and stereotypes are discussed. 

Ask A Butch is a spin-off show. Sheena soon realized that it was not possible to answer questions all types of lesbians and so she wanted to address hatred towards butch women, specifically.
