I noticed this year all or most all the posted books seem to be pre 2000. I sporadically post books published after 2005 and they are scooped up never to be seen again. Any thoughts? Others with similar experiences.

All of them are either eBook or are WL.  (I just posted a Kim Baldwin by FIFO. )

Thanks for responding. I hadn't thought of the ebook phenom affecting the swap. But I can see where it might.

So many lesbian books are by small presses.  The eBooks have become much more affordable to release in small numbers.
