The Lesbian Book Club with Jenny Frame

Welcome to episode 40 of the Lesbian Book Club as I interview fellow UK author Jenny Frame, whose recent books have included Charming The Vicar and Unexpected. Jenny talks about her passion for writing butch/femme romances, having lead protagonists who are polar opposites, and also her busy year ahead with three more books in the works! Plus, she’s got a lovely lilting Scottish accent, so it’s a win-win.

On top of that, I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, and fill you in on what I’ve been up to, including releasing my latest audiobook, Twice In A Lifetime, as well as wrapping up The London Of Us, book four in the London Romance series, due out in June. I also shine the spotlight on the start of awards and conference season, including nominations for this year’s Lambda Literary Awards, the Diva Awards and EllCon, the brand-new European Lesfic Literary Conference on the block coming in August.

London Romance Series Out In Audio!

Thrilled to announce the first three books of my London Romance series are out in audio! The narrators have done a fab job bringing these lesbian romances to life, and I hope you give them a go because I love audiobooks! So if you want to find out how Jess gets on in London Calling, how Kate & Meg meet in This London Love or how Tanya wins Sophie over in A Girl Called London, give these a whirl now!

The Lesbian Book Club with EJ Noyes

Welcome to episode 39 of the Lesbian Book Club as I interview Aussie author EJ Noyes. EJ’s debut novel Ask, Tell was one of the most talked about in lesbian fiction last year, and she’s recently followed it up with her second book, the deliciously sexy lesbian romance Turbulence. EJ tells me about juggling multiple plots in her head, the surprise of her first novel flying off the shelves and how she’s a plane nerd at heart.

As usual, I follow that up with a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, and fill you in on what I’ve been up to, including releasing three audiobooks: London Calling, This London Love and A Girl Called London are out now, and Twice In A Lifetime is coming next month. I’d love to hear who you’d like on the podcast – so email me and let me know:mail@clarelydon.co.uk

New Covers For The London Romance Series!

If you’ve been paying attention, you might have noticed that my London Romance series has a brand-new set of covers – I hope you love them! I decided to give the series a cohesive look so they’re easily identifiable as being linked (despite being standalone books), and I’m really pleased with how they’ve turned out.

The stories inside haven’t changed, with each book focusing on a different couple in this London group of friends. But I thought it was time they got a facelift, and you can expect two more books in this lesbian romance series this year, both with linked covers. So if you haven’t read London Calling, This London Love or A Girl Called London yet, now’s the time to do so before the next books in the series hit the shelves!

Book four, The London Of Us will be out this summer.

The Lesbian Book Club With Annette Mori

Welcome to episode 37 of the Lesbian Book Club as I interview US-based author Annette Mori whose novel Locked Inside won a Goldie award in 2016 for Contemporary Romance – the biggest prize in lesfic! But that’s just one of a number of books Annette’s written, her latest being The Thanksgiving Baby Caper. Annette chats about not following a set writing formula, writing across genres and her excitement about her new book, Unconventional Lovers.

I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as celebrating the fact that my recent release Twice In A Lifetime is still riding high in the charts after six weeks.
