Lesbians Who Write is a weekly show hosted by myself and TB Markinson. Our aim? To draw back the curtain on the writer’s life, make you laugh and chat about lesbian fiction. The podcast has its own website which you can find here. Subscribe by going here.
The Lesbian Book Club is a monthly show. In every one, I interview a lesfic author about their novels, fill you in on lesfic news and tell you what’s riding high in the Kindle lesbian fiction charts. If you’re into lesfic, listen in!

Welcome to episode 48 of the Lesbian Book Club as I round up the end-of-year Amazon lesbian fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as reviewing my favourite lesfic Christmas books.
There’s no interview this month. Instead, I take a look through the goals I set back in January to see if I hit them or not. It’s your chance to peek behind the curtain of a lesbian fiction author’s year and see how things work and how I tick. Did I write the books I said I would? Did I read the books I intended? Did I get guns of steel? And did I propel myself into public speaking like a demon? Take a listen and find out.
