Welcome to episode 73 of the Lesbian Book Club, which is the final episode ever! But have no fear, I sign off in style with my usual run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction Charts in the US & UK, along with a round-up of must-read festive lesbian fiction if you’re in the Christmas mood.
For the interview section, I put myself in the hot seat, revealing my take on 2021, along with my plans for 2022. I might be stopping this podcast, but I plan to fill my time writing more lesbian romance novels, producing more audiobooks and getting my stories translated around the globe.
If you still want to hear my dulcet tones in your ears, I do a weekly podcast called Lesbians Who Write where myself and TB Markinson chat writing & lesbian fiction. You can find out more about it by clicking here.
Thank for listening to this podcast, and do go back and check out all 73 episodes I’ve recorded if you want more!

Welcome to episode 72 of the Lesbian Book Club, where I interview UK author Laura Kay. Her debut novel The Split has been described as like “meeting Marian Keyes and Dawn O’Porter in a gay bar in Sheffield.” Laura tells us about writing it: “I wanted to write about a friendship between a queer woman and a queer man, and it was just a joy.” She also talks about how Sheffield is the worst place to run “crazy hilly and cold!”, and how she could never live on a houseboat.
I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as updating you on the latest news from lesfic world. My upcoming novel Change Of Heart is out in October, and the audiobook of Big London Dreams is coming in November.
When I think of the word strength, I think of Mr Strong of Mr Men fame, sat at his breakfast table about to tuck into a platter of fried eggs. No high cholesterol for him.

One of my goals for this year was to get more of my books translated into other languages. I’m thrilled to say I’ve done just that with Before You Say I Do. It’s already out in German, and it’s now out in Brazilian Portuguese, with the title Antes Que Voce Diga Sim!
It’s fabulous to see the book flourish in another country – it’s currently number one in the Brazilian lesbian romance chart four weeks after release! I think the cover is a smash, and I’m thrilled with the response from readers across the globe.
Fingers crossed this will be the first foray into the Brazilian market, and more of my books can get translated soon. In the meantime, if you read in Brazilian Portuguese, why not give it a try?

Big London Dreams was my 19th lesbian romance novel, but the first one set in any other time but the present day. Writing an historical novel scared me at first, but then I decided to do what scared me. I gave myself extra time to do the research and editing, and a little bit more to get over my publishing nerves. Now I’ve done it, what are my key takeaways?
