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!
