Welcome to episode 49 of the Lesbian Book Club, where I interview New Zealand author Lily Hammond. Lily writes historical romances set in different times and places, where adventurous women dare to follow their hearts, defying convention in their pursuit of happiness. Her recent books have included The Way Home and Alice & Jean, and her reviews on Amazon are off the charts. Lily lives in Dunedin with her partner Valerie. She also writes as Kate Genet and Ana MacKenzie, so a multi-talented author!
I also do a run-down of the Amazon lesbian fiction charts in the US & UK. I talk about what I’ve been up to, including readying my upcoming lesbian romance You’re My Kind for launch in March. Plus, I’ve also been busy writing the next book in my London Romance series, Made In London, due out in May. In lesfic news, the Diva Literary Festival is happening in March in Birmingham, UK.

But I’ve learned so much, sold a stack of lesbian romance books and I plan to build and grow on that success in the coming year. 2015 was the year I started to take writing seriously. In doing so, I guaranteed that 2015 was without a doubt my busiest year yet. And being busy means you learn stuff – stuff like this…
