Queeromance Ink is an author-driven site that lists books by and for a queer (LGBTIQA) audience.

We do not police stories for content, good or bad, but we do encourage authors to note when their work may include sensitive or controversial content.

Privacy Policy

Queeromance Ink will not trade or sell the names on its mailing lists to any other company or individual. Email addresses added to our list will be used solely for our own internal and marketing purposes. In addition, we will immediately remove anyone from the list upon receipt of a written request (via email or US mail).

Usage Policy

Queeromance Ink is a directory service only, not a recommendation service. We list books that have queer romantic content, and post the information we receive “as-is”. This information is not warranted or guaranteed in any way, and we cannot be held responsible for failure by any of the books listed herein to meet those claims. Anyone who uses this information agrees to do so solely at their own risk.

We do not screen the authors or books listed here for compliance with federal, state, or local registration, safety, or other legal requirements. The site visitor takes sole responsibility for investigating such compliance themselves.

Queeromance Ink also does not take responsibility for materials or statements listed on third-parties’ linked pages we link to which are not part of the Queeromance Ink site.

Queeromance Ink does not mediate disagreements between authors and readers, and any comments or questions about the content of the listings on this site should be forwarded to the author directly.

Queeromance Ink reserves the right to refuse any listing at our discretion.
