Stuck for a present for that special someone? Keep shopping for others and coming back with armfuls for yourself? It’s normal. We’re not easy to buy for, which is why I’ve selected some items that might make your Christmas shopping swish along that little bit faster. Whatever you end up with, I hope there’s something here to tickle your fancy!
All I Want For Christmas is the first lesbian romance where I truly embraced farce. It’s a romantic comedy at heart – my favourite genre – but it’s also where I stepped up the cringe-worthy farce factor, putting Tori Hammond through the wringer on her way to finding love. I defy you read the book and not laugh out loud, but also cringe out loud!
Welcome to episode 47 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview UK-based author Lise Gold whose book Fireflies has been bothering the top of the charts this autumn. Lise has been writing for a couple of years, and her other books include French Summer and The Cruise. She chats about her passion for travel, why she loves to write true love stories and how her previous job as a designer has helped her creative writing process.
Then I do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. I also chat about what I’ve been up to, including launching my latest book, London, Actually (book five in the London Romance series), and putting my All I Want series into Kindle Unlimited. If you want a rom-com for the festive season, pick up All I Want For Christmas now!
In case you weren’t aware, it’s the most wonderful time of the year! I love everything about Christmas: the tinsel, the lights, the music, the movies, the food – and especially the drinks. Mulled wine and a river of chocolate – what’s not to love?! But weirdly, much as I love Christmas, I didn’t get into Christmas books until around three years ago when I read my first Christmas romance and I was hooked. And let me tell you – Christmas books aren’t just for the season – I love to read them all year round. So this year, I thought I’d refresh my favourite Christmas lesfic offerings. So here, for your delight, are my top five festive picks!

I began writing the story of Tori and Holly in July 2015. While everyone else was slapping on the factor 15 and jetting off to hotter climes, I was embarking on a Christmas book. However, writing a Christmas story in summer posed no difficulty at all, because like my main character Tori, I love Christmas – so bringing it forward a few months was a plus. When I used to work in an office, I’d always get told off for playing Christmas music way too early. Now, I have a job where playing Christmas tunes in July is perfectly acceptable. Win!
Hey, and happy Valentine’s Day to you! I hope you’re celebrating just the way you want to, preferably with a book, your drink of choice and a little lurve! To make sure you have the BEST DAY EVER, I’ve got an out-of-this-world Valentine’s offer just for you! I’ve teamed up with two other lesbian romance authors – Harper Bliss and TB Markinson – and for a limited time only (till February 19th), we’re discounting our boxsets to get you in the Valentine’s mood!
Back in January 2016, I set out my goals for the year – the first time I’d ever done so in public. You can read the post here. So how did I do? Seeing as I didn’t actually check my goals after March (for shame!), actually not too badly. 2016 was the year I ramped up my production of books, so come with me as I look back on my goals for 2016 and see what happened along the way…
This year, Christmas came early in the form of a fantastic review for All I Want For Christmas on lesbian fiction review site, Les Reveur. If you didn’t catch the five-star review, you can read the full article here – but here’s a snippet:
“I adored this book. I love Christmas and this book was a perfect way to get me in the mood, I even had my Christmas playlist playing in the background whilst reading… perfection personified. The writing was tight and very descriptive in the parts it was needed, which helped with imagining the characters better. This is definitely my No.1 Christmas book and I will be pulling it out again next December!”
What’s more, All I Want For Christmas was also picked as the No.1 lesbian Christmas book by the site, which I couldn’t be more thrilled about! You can check out the full top five books here by clicking here.
Hurrah and happy holidays one and all!
