The Lesbian Book Club with Kiki Archer

Welcome to Episode 13 of The Lesbian Book Club where I interview fellow British author Kiki Archer. Kiki is a huge lesfic fan favourite who’s so far written six novels including her debut But She Is My Student, and her latest smash-hit Too Late… I Love You. She discusses the secrets of her success, how being a full-time author is her perfect job, and how she’s already working on her next book, due out next summer.

After that, I do my normal run down of the Amazon lesbian fiction charts, as well as reading a special preview from my new novel, All I Want For Christmas, due out October 31st. Get in touch and let me know what you think of the show: mail@clarelydon.co.uk

Watch out for my new book, All I Want For Christmas, due out next week!

It’s going to be sharp, bold and sassy, and I’ll be appearing alongside other indie authors Clare Ashton, Kiki Archer and Cindy Rizzo. Above is a promo video I did for LFest, A Day In The Life Of An Author – all tongue in cheek of course. I actually spend far more time faffing around on social media every day than is shown here…

LFest is taking place from July 18th-21st at Uttoxeter Race Course. Find out more and buy tickets here.
