New Short Stories Ahoy!


Have you been sitting around thinking “I wish that Clare Lydon would write some short stories and stop watching Come Dine With Me”? Well you’re in luck! Because this month, as well as launching my new novel The Long Weekend, I’ve also been fortunate enough to contribute two brand new short stories to two different anthologies! Honestly, you wait for one charity lesbian fiction anthology to rock up, then two show up at once…

Both of these anthologies are host to a glut of gorgeous stories from fabulous authors from around the globe.

Unwrap-These-Presents-250The first, Unwrap These Presents, is a Christmas-themed anthology to get you in the festive mood. Proceeds from it go towards helping homeless LGBT youth – a truly worthy cause.

My story, A Champagne Christmas, focuses on Milly, who takes her new love Georgia home for Christmas. Only it turns out Milly’s mum already knows her. Very well.


LISFOR-250The second, L Is For, is a UK lesfic anthology which features romance, comedy and even a slice of erotica. Proceeds from this go towards the charity RU Coming Out, an online resource aimed at smoothing the coming out process.

My story focuses on Stella, dragged on holiday to a caravan park by her brother David after a bad break-up. Stella doesn’t like camping. But then she meets Casey…


Plus, The Long Weekend & London Calling are out now – warm up your winter evenings with one today!
