Congratulations, everyone, and thank you so much for participating. We’re thrilled to be giving away all these books. Enjoy!

Sarah F. is a literary critic, a college professor, and an avid reader of romance -- and is thrilled that these are no longer mutually exclusive. Her academic specialization is Romantic-era British women novelists, especially Jane Austen, but she is contributing to the exciting re-visioning of academic criticism of popular romance fiction. Sarah is a contributor to the academic blog about romance, Teach Me Tonight, the winner of the 2008-2009 RWA Academic Research Grant, and the founder and President of the International Association of the Study of Popular Romance (IASPR). Sarah mainly reviews BDSM romance and gay male romance and hopes to be able to beat her TBR pile into submission when she has time to think. Sarah teaches at Fayetteville State University, NC.

    IDK if the “allison” above is me but I’m sort of really hoping it is as that book was on my “to buy” list. I checked my spam, though, and nothing.

    Regardless – I appreciate the special feature. Would you consider doing it again, possibly around the National Day of Silence? It definitely got people talking about LGBTQQ issues.
