It was a year that had its share of challenges and sorrows, but one that also saw moments of happiness and joy. When I was forced to take an extended sabbatical to deal with the illness (and eventual passing) of my father, the rest of the team stepped up to keep things running. When one of our more active reviewers chose to remove herself from the trans* community, some new faces stepped in to add even more diversity to the shelves.
On behalf of myself, the review team, and all of our authors, I want to extend a hearty 'thank you' to everyone who helped make the year such a success.
With the prospect of a new year dawning bright, I plan to invest a lot more time and effort in making Bending the Bookshelf a success. We are working on some new features, looking to add even more reviewers, and are planning some new activities. At the same time, I would love to make this more of a community, and encourage more discussion.
To that end, I am delighted to offer a big end-of-year giveaway to say thanks to everyone who made 2015 such a success, and to help make 2016 even bigger and better.
All you have to do is help spread the word about our little blog - every post/share/like will earn you an additional entry in the giveaway. At the end of the giveaway I will draw one luck winner who will receive a $25 gift card to the winner's choice of Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, or Chapters.ca.
For those of you who are new to Bending the Bookshelf, welcome to our little community! Our mission is one of bending gender identities, gender expressions, and gender roles. Here you will find transgender biographies, intersex adventures, crossdressing guides, transsexual romances, futanari fantasies, tales of female dominant societies, and so much more.
