It’s January! It’s 2021! I want to run up to this new year and give it a kiss, but I can’t. Social distancing and all that. So while this fresh start feels like groundhog day, I’m banking on there being light at the end of the tunnel. With that in mind, 2021 is all about keeping the faith and writing some books. Ready to read my plans? Here they are… Continue reading » “My Goals For 2021”
So let’s get this out of the way first: 2020. Crikey bananas, what a year. I went into it full of optimism, but after March, things took a decided turn for the worst. But for all the terrible things around the world, business-wise at least, 2020 was my best year yet. I know. I’m not going to dwell on the pandemic, divisive politics and racism: 2020 had them all. This blog entry is going to see how 2020 was for me professionally. Did I hit my goals? Did I publish books? Did I survive? If you want to know the sticky details, read on… Continue reading » “My Goals For 2020: How Did I Do?”
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Sort of. I mean, 2020 is testing us all. But there is still mulled wine, chocolates and twinkly lights. So let’s run with it. I adore the run-up to Christmas: late November and all of December are my absolute faves, and the thing I love most are Christmas movies. Unexpected snow storm? Tick. Stuck in a picturesque cabin with an impossibly good-looking stranger? Tick. Been summoned home to deal with a family crisis, and whaddayaknow, you bump into your first love? Tick, tickety, tick!
But much as I love Christmas movies, what I wouldn’t give for a few more with two women in the starring romantic roles – and that’s where queer Christmas books come in! Festive stories abound this time of year, so if you want your fix of yuletide love with some women at the helm, step this way. Here are my picks for a lesbian Christmas tale, best served with mulled wine and a Lindt Santa…

That means that however you read, you can now buy Before You Say I Do around the world! Continue reading » “Before You Say I Do Available Everywhere!”
Welcome to episode 65 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview US author Haley Cass. Haley’s debut novel Those Who Wait took the lesbian fiction world by storm this year, along with its follow-up Forever And A Day. Her new book, When You Least Expect It is currently thrilling lesbian romance readers around the world, too.
She talks about how her debut started life as a Game Of Thrones fanfic, and how blown away she still is by the reaction from readers. She also talks about how her favourite part of writing is the angst – when characters truly have to face their fears: “Break-ups and their aftermath are the first things that go in my outline. I’m always ready to write those.”
As usual I do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. My new book, Christmas In Mistletoe, is riding high in the charts alongside Haley’s, which is perfect timing!
Enjoy the podcast, and I’ll be back with a festive special before Christmas!

This month on The Lesbian Book Club podcast, I chat to US author, Erin Zak, famed for her books The Road Home and Breaking Down Her Walls. A two-time Lammy finalist, Erin has spent most of the last four years writing as much as possible. She talks about taking 12 years to pen her first novel, her love of Vegas and Chicago, writing as therapy, and how she fits in so much to her packed schedule.
All this, plus I do the usual run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as talking about what I’ve been up to. Mainly, penning my upcoming Christmas romance, Christmas In Mistletoe, out in November. Plus, launching the audiobook of Before You Say I Do.
