Are you doing Jae’s Sapphic Reading Challenge 2021? If not, maybe you should consider it! There are prizes on offer, as well as the chance to read more widely and be introduced to a ton of new books and authors. Plus, if you join her Facebook group, you could even chat about the books you’ve read with other like-minded readers, too. It’s a triple win!
How does it work? In Jae’s own words: “The goal is to read sapphic books that fit as many of the 50 categories listed as possible. You can read ebooks, paperbacks, or audiobooks; and they can be new-to-you books or re-reads. I’ll post book recommendations for a new category once a week. Of course, you could also just read whatever books you want and then, afterwards, see what categories they fit into. Depending on how many sapphic books you manage to read in 2021, you can earn different badges and book prizes.”
Basically, read books that fit certain tropes, and there are prizes to be had! Plus, you get to call yourself a Book Penguin, a Book Dragon or even a Book Unicorn.
Jae has 50 categories to tick off in her challenge, so I thought I’d list my books and what category they fit in. I’ve got 18 novels, and there are 50 categories. I might miss some matches, but I’m going to do the absolute best I can, and hopefully it might help you to fill your challenge card and puff your reading muscles. Ready? Here goes…

It’s January! It’s 2021! I want to run up to this new year and give it a kiss, but I can’t. Social distancing and all that.

Ready to read my plans? Here they are… Continue reading » “My Goals For 2021”
So let’s get this out of the way first: 2020. Crikey bananas, what a year. I went into it full of optimism, but after March, things took a decided turn for the worst. But for all the terrible things around the world, business-wise at least, 2020 was my best year yet. I know. I’m not going to dwell on the pandemic, divisive politics and racism: 2020 had them all. This blog entry is going to see how 2020 was for me professionally. Did I hit my goals? Did I publish books? Did I survive? If you want to know the sticky details, read on… Continue reading » “My Goals For 2020: How Did I Do?”
2020 has been a phenomenal year for my ebook sales, led by the huge breakout success of Before You Say I Do.

At the start of the year, I set out ten goals. But back then, we had no idea what 2020 had in store for us, did we? With everything that’s happened since, I was trepidacious about finding out how I’d done. But you know what? I’ve not only done well, I’ve smashed many of my goals for the first six months of the year! I couldn’t be happier. Here’s my round-up of January to June… Continue reading » “2020: Half-Year Goal Check-In”
Welcome to episode 59 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview US author Karin Kallmaker, the queen of lesbian romance. Karin needs no introduction, having written over 30 novels and countless short stories, including the classic Painted Moon and her latest, Because I Said So. She talks about the inspirational power of Wonder Woman, plus how to write the perfect sex scene: “They’ve changed so much over the years. Now I would describe myself as a sensualist.” Karin also talks about the magic of being ‘in flow’, and how she owes Katherine V Forrest (of Curious Wine fame) so much: “Without her guidance, I wouldn’t be writing books 30 years later.” Find out more about her at: www.kallmaker.com
As usual, I also a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. My new book, Before You Say I Do, is getting rave reviews, and I’m already cracking on with my next book, a co-write with TB Markinson due out in June. In audiobook news, A Taste Of Love is also available now.
Thrilled to let you know that my new lesbian romance, Before You Say I Do, is out now!
You’re going to love this book because:
1. Forbidden love makes for pages & pages of delicious simmering desire.
2. The attraction is so hot, your Kindle might start to steam.
3. You need to know the answer: what does happen if you fall for your bridesmaid?
4. The story is jam-packed with emotion. Like, full to the brim and overflowing.
5. I reckon it’s the best book I’ve ever written. A bold statement? Read it and make up your own mind!
I put my heart and soul into this one, and I hope you enjoy reading the story of Abby & Jordan. Do let me know what you think.
Thanks so much for your support – you really are the best.
