2015: Ten Things I Learned

Brighton Pride 2015
Me hosting the Brighton Pride Literature tent.

Farewell then, 2015. You’ve been immense. If I had to describe you in three words, I’d say challenging, rewarding and fattening (the life of a writer doesn’t involve a whole lot of moving). But I’ve learned so much, sold a stack of lesbian romance books and I plan to build and grow on that success in the coming year. 2015 was the year I started to take writing seriously. In doing so, I guaranteed that 2015 was without a doubt my busiest year yet. And being busy means you learn stuff – stuff like this…

The Lesbian Book Club With Robin Alexander

On Episode 11 of The Lesbian Book Club, I have an interview with international smash-hit author Robin Alexander, whose latest books include The Trip and Next Time. Robin chats about how her close connections with her family influences her writing, her love of good humour in her books, getting into a daily writing habit and her goals for the rest of the year. Oh, and how she really wants to write a horror book!

As well as my chat with Robin, I also take a canter down the Amazon lesbian fiction charts which this month have a strangely medical leaning, as well as chatting about my summer readings, the upcoming readings in UK lesfic-land and how I’ve just completed draft one of book four. Yay! Expect it out later this year.

The Lesbian Book Club with Crin Claxton

Welcome to episode ten of The Lesbian Book Club – yes, episode ten! I’m so enjoying doing this podcast and I hope you enjoy listening too. It’s given me the opportunity to interview some great lesfic authors, including this time around with fellow Londoner & lesbian fiction author Crin Claxton.

Crin just published her third book Death’s Doorway in June, the follow-up to The Supernatural Detective. She chats about her love of London and cooking, her butch identity, her writing process and how she plans to put out a book a year from now on.

As well as the fab chat with Crin, I also give you the low-down on the Amazon lesbian fiction charts in the UK and US, with notable books from Georgia Beers, Kiki Archer, Jade Winters, Robin Alexander and me! Plus, there’s a review of LFest, the GCLS awards and my upcoming hosting of the Brighton Pride Literature Live tent. If you’re going to Brighton Pride on August 1st, stop by and say hi!

LFest 2015: Indie Author Panel

This year’s LFest at Uttoxeter Racecourse had it all – sunshine, women, books & song. Really, what more is there in life? By day, I soaked up some rays, got cultured in the Arts Tent and ate some of the largest ice creams ever imagined. By night I whooped to the likes of Stooshe & Lucy Spraggan, drank lager out of plastic cups and wore a cowboy hat with some style. Nearly.

Summer Readings!

LFest-blog

I’m now well into my summer stride – the light and fluffy duvet’s on, the BBQ has been used at least once and I’ve even sat in my garden to have breakfast. It’s like I live in LA or summat. You know what else summer’s about? Drinking beer in fields and getting all dreamy at festivals, that’s what! Over the next two weeks, I’ll be appearing at a couple of venues, so if you’re in the UK and coming along to either LFest or Brighton Pride, do stop by and say hi!

Public Speaking For Authors: Top Ten Tips

public-speaking

I am an introvert with an extrovert streak. My introvert likes to write, read and watch an endless stream of Come Dine With Me. My extrovert loves to socialise and is happiest when given a microphone on a stage and asked to sing – at karaoke, at parties, wherever. In July I did my first book reading at L Fest and then my second two weeks later at Brighton Pride – but I wasn’t sure who would turn up on stage for these public speaking gigs. Would my shy writerly side win the day? Or would I be able to channel my karaoke prowess without actually breaking into a rendition of Teenage Dirtbag by accident?
