Reviews for "The Big Book of Bisexual Trials and Errors"
“The Big Book of Bisexual Trials and Errors by Elizabeth Beier details an authentic and honest queer experience. It’s not afraid to be frank and intimate with its readers. The artwork clearly comes from a very personal place and lets readers feel right at home in the story.”
"Where the story really shines is seeing her come to terms with who she really is in all aspects beyond sexuality—confidence, self-esteem, body image, and talent."
"With simple and stark black and white drawings, this graphic novel anthology truly deserves to be on the bookshelf of every bisexual woman who loves queer indies."
"Overall, a compendium full of heartbreaks, self-discoveries and truly a lesson in learning how to be building one’s self confidence. The stories by Beier are funny, sad, beautiful, and intriguing. The art by Beier could be museum paintings, as each panel seems to be given much care."
What a Nerd Blog: Review: The Big Book of Bisexual Trials and Errors
"The voice of this story is witty, and sure, but is still obviously trying to show that she has found herself in this adventure called life. One thing unique about this is the fact that she includes a list of resources at the end of the book ... You can tell she wanted to make sure that anyone and everyone could get the help they needed after reading her book. It is the first time I have ever seen something like that and it was heartwarming."

"I got a chance to interview Beier on her raw, emotional, and honest book, one that in full honesty spoke to me on a deep and personal level. Anyone exploring new personal or sexual territory will see themselves in Beier’s honest prose and stark artwork."
"After her long-term heterosexual relationship ended, Beier began dating women for the first time and chronicling the highs and lows in lush ink comics."
"Beier mentioned that she loves to draw faces, but she’s also interested in voice, and that interest in authenticity, in specificity, in capturing individuals and their stories is at the heart of her work. This is a coming of age story about a twenty-something woman, but it’s also about a woman situating herself in and coming to understand her community."
