Welcome to episode 65 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview US author Haley Cass. Haley’s debut novel Those Who Wait took the lesbian fiction world by storm this year, along with its follow-up Forever And A Day. Her new book, When You Least Expect It is currently thrilling lesbian romance readers around the world, too.
She talks about how her debut started life as a Game Of Thrones fanfic, and how blown away she still is by the reaction from readers. She also talks about how her favourite part of writing is the angst – when characters truly have to face their fears: “Break-ups and their aftermath are the first things that go in my outline. I’m always ready to write those.”
As usual I do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. My new book, Christmas In Mistletoe, is riding high in the charts alongside Haley’s, which is perfect timing!
Enjoy the podcast, and I’ll be back with a festive special before Christmas!
