Welcome to episode 41 of the Lesbian Book Club as I interview US author TB Markinson, whose recent books have included The Fall Girl and A Family Woman. TB talks about being an American in London, the highs and lows of living the writing life, the magic of characters and story, and why she started her new website www.iheartlesfic.com to serve the lesbian fiction community.
As usual, I also do a run-down of the Amazon lesbian fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as highlighting the shortlists for the Diva Awards and the Goldies – Diva is taking place in June in London, and the Goldies in July in Las Vegas. Tickest are still available for both! Plus, if you’re in the UK, don’t forget EllCon, the brand-new European Lesfic Literary Conference on the block coming in August. For more on that, head to: http://ellconmeet.org/
As if that wasn’t enough, I also fill you in on what I’ve been up to, including wrapping up The London Of Us, book four in the London Romance series (due out in June); and writing my joint lesbian romance with Harper Bliss – called Once Upon A Princess – a royal romance due out at the end of May.

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.

Dead chuffed to let you know that my best-seller Twice In A Lifetime is now out in audio! Hooray! Whether you’ve read the book or not, you’re in for a treat as TJ Richards has done a stellar job of narrating the tale of Harriet and Sally, bringing a delicious extra dimension to their story of second-chance romance. An American narrating one of my stories? It’s like I’ve died and gone to heaven ;0)

Her debut novel Four Steps won a Goldie award for Best Debut Novel in 2016 and she talks about setting her books in Scotland, how to create a character that readers love and how she sets up suspense in her books & keeps it going. Wendy also reveals how she fits in writing around her day job, the mantras that spur her on and her favourite crime writers in lesfic. She’s a fabulous interview with a lilting Scottish accent, to take a listen!

Welcome to episode 35 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview fellow UK author Emma Nichols. Emma’s debut novel Finding You was released in July, and her follow up Remember Me just two weeks later. Both books shot to the top of the charts all around the globe at breathtaking speed and Emma talks about her runaway success and how she managed it, along with the transition from writing non-fiction to making her mark in the fiction-writing world. That, and we also discuss the frankly bonkers amount of booze her characters drink!
