1 – Write a schedule.
I’ve done this already! First goal ticked off! Now I just need to remember to look at it and take action. Simple, right? I managed to do it last year, but it tailed off after August. The reason? I needed a break. More balance is needed this year so I don’t conk out part-way through 2020. Work consistently, maintain my physical health, and get help where it’s needed.

Welcome to episode 55 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview fellow UK author Claire Highton-Stevenson. Claire’s latest book, In Dyer Need, is an end-of-the-world romance that’ll have you on the edge of your seat. Claire writes detective stories as well as romance, and also won a Goldie award this year for her heartfelt book, The Promise. Claire talks about creating strong characters, writing sex scenes and how she’s an accidental writer. Her advice: decide what you want and go for it! Find her at: www.itsclastevofficial.com
I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. Plus, I talk about what I’ve been up to, including working on my next, as yet untitled book, and berating myself for not writing a Christmas book this year. Next year, I promise I’ll write one. And the year after that too, just to make up for a lack of one for the past four years.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Just ask Santa. Whatever that means to you – Christmas/Hanukkah/Las Posadas/winter solstice/Diwali/sitting on your couch with a tub of Quality Street – it counts!
The one unalterable fact this holiday season is that you need gifts to lavish on your loved ones, and fast. But fear not!

Ready or not, here comes romance…
Photographer Heidi Hughes has been single since her daughter was born. But now Maya’s walking and talking, she’s ready to meet someone who’s happy with her cute-but-chaotic extra.
Eden Price’s world is all about order and precision: in her job, her home, her friendships. A PR guru, she’s designed her life to run like clockwork.
At least she had, until the universe decided she needed to meet Heidi. Now, Eden’s not sure of much, because Heidi is everything she didn’t want, but now categorically does. Can the family-phobic singleton really be falling for the single mum?
Book six in the London Romance series features cats, kids and calamity, along with chocolate spread exactly where you want it. Clare Lydon has done it again with another glittering and hilarious romantic comedy!
