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.

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.
