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!
I come bearing jingly-jangly news: Christmas In Mistletoe, my brand-new festive lesbian romance, is out now!
You’re going to love this book because:
1. It’s set in a village called Mistletoe & features a Christmas tree farm. I know!
2. The story is a gorgeous enemies-to-lovers romance.
3. It’s got a hot singer, delicious simmering attraction, plus a scorching first kiss.
4. There are snowball fights, mulled wine and twinkly lights, plus a sparkling array of locals.
5. The story is gift-wrapped with emotion, and guaranteed to give you the Christmas feels. All of them. Proper head-to-toe tingles.
It’s been five years since my last Christmas romance, and I’ve got my fingers crossed that this one was worth the wait. I hope you enjoy the story of Fran and Ruby! Do let me know what you think.

I’ve been talking about getting my books into different languages for quite some time, but it’s finally come true! My best-selling lesbian romance, Before You Say I Do – or should I say, Bevor Du Sagst Ich Will – is out now in German. Wunderbar! Continue reading » “Before You Say I Do: Now In German!”
It’s title and cover reveal day for my upcoming festive romance, Christmas In Mistletoe! I hope you love both as much as I do. This lesbian romance has a Christmas tree farm, a singer, a Christmas curmudgeon, mulled wine, tinsel, hilarious locals, snow, a yappy dog and all manner of yuletide goodness. Suffice it to say, if you like Christmas and women falling in love, this is the book for you.
Blurb to come later this week, and you can expect the novel to drop in a few weeks time. November. Definitely November!
It’s time to get excited for my new fairy-lit romance where Ruby and Fran have no idea what’s about to happen in the cutest Suffolk village!
Great news: Before You Say I Do is finally coming out as an audiobook. Hurrah! October 13th is the date, so mark your calendar. Even better, why not pre-order it on Audible? You can do so by clicking this link.
I hope you love the audio version and are thrilled all over again with the story of Abby & Jordan. But if you haven’t read my best-selling lesbian romance yet, the audiobook is a fabulous place to start. I think it sounds awesome.
Welcome to episode 63 of the Lesbian Book Club as I interview US author Melissa Lenhardt. A lifelong Texan, Melissa writes women’s fiction, mystery, and historical fiction. She’s just released The Secret Of You And Me, her first foray into lesbian romance – and also the first lesbian romance published by Mills & Boon. Melissa talks about her writing career, how she came to write her first queer romance, and how she hopes it’s the first of many taken on by her publisher. Also, she has a way-cool southern accent which I neglected to tell her!
I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, which this month is terribly literary with authors like Emma Donoghue, Sophie Ward and Bernardine Evaristo. I hope you enjoy the podcast!

Welcome to episode 62 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview eight lesbian fiction authors and asks them how their 2020 is going in this Half-Year Summer Round-Up show. What a year it’s been so far, right? Nobody could have written this.
The eight authors are: Eliza Lentzski, Clare Ashton, Cheyenne Blue, Giselle Fox, Jae, Wendy Hudson, KJ & Lise Gold. I quiz them on what they’ve learned, what they’ve written, the plans for the rest of the year, where they’d love to be and their future hopes. Expect high-brow answers, lofty goals and humour peppered throughout.
I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. Plus, I outline how I’ve changed my publishing goals for the year, shifting her next London Romance book to January 2020 after completing my own Half-Year Goals Round-up and reflecting on it. I hope you enjoy this special girl-gang episode, I loved asking so many authors how their year is going!
At the start of the year, I set out ten goals. But back then, we had no idea what 2020 had in store for us, did we? With everything that’s happened since, I was trepidacious about finding out how I’d done. But you know what? I’ve not only done well, I’ve smashed many of my goals for the first six months of the year! I couldn’t be happier. Here’s my round-up of January to June… Continue reading » “2020: Half-Year Goal Check-In”
Welcome to episode 61 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview US author KD Williamson. KD is famed for her cops n docs series starting with Blurred Lines, and her latest romance Big Girl Pill has been lighting up the lesfic charts of late. Her books are cops and docs, wrapped in romance, wrapped in humour. Plus, they’re snarky and the characters are real. We chat writing secondary characters, diversity in lesbian fiction and KD’s very funny writing style. She says: “I don’t write books just about two main characters falling in love. I don’t write sanitised fiction. If you want books that are light, cute, nice and nobody swears, that’s great. But I’m not that writer.”
I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. Enjoy the podcast, particularly KD’s gorgeous accent!
