Welcome to episode 66 of the Lesbian Book Club where I bring you a bumper festive special to end the year! In it, I quiz seven authors about their writing year, their festive plans and their hopes for 2021. Interviewed are: AL Brooks, HP Munro, Cara Malone, Rosy Dee, Harper Bliss, Kris Bryant and Monica McCallan.
As usual, I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as talking about what I’ve been up to. If you want to know what all the authors want from Santa, listen now!
Happy holidays to you, and see you next year for more Lesbian Book Club Podcasts!

This was an LFest awash with love and positivity, the highlight being the Indie Author Panel hosted by me (of course!). Despite some mic issues at the start, the readings were varied, the audience fantastic and it was fabulous fun to be a part of – watch the video above, my reading from This London Love is towards the end (around 1:01). I can’t wait for next year’s LFest already!
