Clare Lydon: Weekly Update

ice-cream-400What am I working on? My new novel, Twice In A Lifetime, due later this year. I’ve nearly finished the first edit and I really like it so far. It’s a second-chance romance and it’s set in the USA, in Chicago, the first time I’ve ever set one of my books outside the UK. Doing so was inspired by a trip to Chicago this summer, which I absolutely loved, and now I keep bugging my Chicago friends for details I’ve forgotten. Also, thank goodness for Google maps! I’ve been walking up and down Lake Michigan, the Magnificent Mile, and sailing down the Chicago river.

Writing A Girl Called London

AGCL-FINAL-300x480When I first started thinking about writing the third book in the London Romance series, I wasn’t sure which character to focus on – should I choose one from a previous book, or should I make up a fresh one? But then Tanya kept knocking at my plot door, and she was quite persistent. I wondered if she’d been too much as Meg’s stroppy ex in This London Love, but by the end of that book, she’d redeemed herself. The die was cast: Tanya was going to be the linking character.

A Girl Called London, the long-awaited follow-up to London Calling and This London Love, is back from the editor with a thumbs-up – hurrah!

World Book Day Reading

TFL-CropFor World Book Day this year, I was really thrilled to be invited along to the offices of Transport For London by their LGBT group, OUTBound.

Over the course of a lunchtime, I did readings from my lesbian romance novels This London Love and Nothing To Lose, as well as answering a slew of questions on life as an indie author. It was a lot of fun and I met some ace people, plus I got to see the Pride crossing which is in plum position in TFL’s foyer – win!

I hope you spent World Book Day curled up with your favourite book!
