Ah, 2023, I’ve been expecting you!
Another year dawns, and I’m almost ready. Usually at this moment, I trot out the amount of books, translations and audiobooks I want to get out into the world this year. I’ve done it for years, so it’s normal. But this year is different. Because yes, while I do want to do all of that, my health is more important. If that fails, everything fails. Last year, my health suffered, physical and mental. This year, I’m putting it first. If that means I get no books out, that’s okay. It’s not my intention, but that’s okay. But I’m fairly sure it won’t come to that. But as a marker of how much I value getting my health back on track, it’s first on my list of goals… Continue reading » “My Goals For 2023”

When I think of the word strength, I think of Mr Strong of Mr Men fame, sat at his breakfast table about to tuck into a platter of fried eggs. No high cholesterol for him. But strength isn’t just physical. Rather, strengths are the things you excel at through a combination of hard work and innate talent. Continue reading » “Embrace Your Strengths!”

I’ve been banging on about getting my books out in different languages for a while now, and I’ve only gone and done it again! I’m thrilled to let you know that Das Gefuhl Von Liebe – the German version of A Taste Of Love – is out now!
This lesbian romance is set in the Cotswolds, and features gin lover Natalie Hill and her new ice cream-toting neighbour, Ellie Knap. It’s an enemies-to-lovers small-town story packed with passion, and I hope it fills your summer with lashings of German love!

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 the most wonderful time of the year! Sort of. I mean, 2020 is testing us all. But there is still mulled wine, chocolates and twinkly lights. So let’s run with it. I adore the run-up to Christmas: late November and all of December are my absolute faves, and the thing I love most are Christmas movies. Unexpected snow storm? Tick. Stuck in a picturesque cabin with an impossibly good-looking stranger? Tick. Been summoned home to deal with a family crisis, and whaddayaknow, you bump into your first love? Tick, tickety, tick!
But much as I love Christmas movies, what I wouldn’t give for a few more with two women in the starring romantic roles – and that’s where queer Christmas books come in! Festive stories abound this time of year, so if you want your fix of yuletide love with some women at the helm, step this way. Here are my picks for a lesbian Christmas tale, best served with mulled wine and a Lindt Santa…

2020 has been a phenomenal year for my ebook sales, led by the huge breakout success of Before You Say I Do. Up until early December, the ebook was only available to buy or rent on Kindle or Kindle Unlimited. However, at the start of the month I put the romance for sale wide across all platforms. That means that however you read, you can now buy Before You Say I Do around the world! Continue reading » “Before You Say I Do Available Everywhere!”
