Heart is searching for special people to join her on her collaborative shorts journey on BL Palace discord. Please find Hartfel#6556 on BL Palace discord if you are interested. We write short stories based on a given prompt and then post them on channels/ threads dedicated to them. Heart is thinking of a new prompt related to Japanese Lit European inspired magic stories~
FYI, we currently have a Space Bar prompt and BL Palace Xianxia shorts available for you to join to practice your writing. You... err, don't wanna know about the Mafia AU unless you're committed enough to join the BLP family tree.
Find me, le Heart. Pls. *cat pleading eyes*
Did you see the chibis on our heading banner? Do you know where they come from? Such a mystery~ 😏😏
In every BLBL Newsletter, we dedicate a corner to showcase our staff's incredible artistic talent and give a shout-out to a handful of beautiful BL couples from novels featured on our very own Scribblehub! σ(≧ε≦ｏ)
Have you read enough BL novels to guess which books these cute and adorable chibis are from? There's no punishment for guessing wrong! But if you guessed correctly before the big reveal you might just receive a cookie! 🍪🍪🍪🍪
Now, drum-roll please! 🥁🥁🥁
Did you like these chibis a lot? Would you also like to have chibis of your BL characters drawn? If you have a finished or regularly updating novel with over 20k words, you can fill out this form to have a chibi of your main couple drawn and included in the newsletter banner!
We have no OG BL novel recommendations this month 🥲🥲🥲 If you read something you like, please send a recommendation-review in!
We have no General BL News this month 😅😅😅 If you see something around, send it in!
