The Lesbian Book Club with Rosie Wilby

Welcome to episode 33 of the Lesbian Book Club as I interview UK broadcaster, comedian and author Rosie Wilby, who’s just released her book Is Monogamy Dead? Rosie’s book is non-fiction in a change for this podcast, and asks the title’s question by journeying through her life, shining a spotlight on all her relationships and asking some searching and often awkward questions. Rosie talks about the writing journey, what she learned and how her new partner is coping with her promoting such a book!

As usual, I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as talking about the Golden Crown Literary Awards, listing all the winners in the lesbian fiction categories. Plus, there’s news of the Diva Literary Festival taking place in November in the UK, as well my first ever audiobook of my lesbian romance Nothing To Lose, due out the first week of August. Get in touch and let me know who you’d like on the podcast – and if you’d like a code to review my audiobook, drop me a line at:  mail@clarelydon.co.uk

Writing A Girl Called London

AGCL-FINAL-300x480When I first started thinking about writing the third book in the London Romance series, I wasn’t sure which character to focus on – should I choose one from a previous book, or should I make up a fresh one? But then Tanya kept knocking at my plot door, and she was quite persistent.

The Lesbian Book Club With Harper Bliss

Welcome to episode 31 of the Lesbian Book Club, where I had the pleasure of interviewing the uber-prolific author Harper Bliss and her wife Caroline. Together the duo run their small press, Ladylit Publishing, which as well as publishing all of Harper’s books has also just launched MyLesfic.com, a new discount lesbian fiction newsletter. Harper is a huge favourite with fans of lesbian romance and her books are regular chart-toppers around the globe – the most recent being Everything Between Us and This Foreign Affair, part of the Pink Bean series. Harper and Caroline are currently digital nomads and 2017 is shaping up to be a tour de force for them both.

As usual, I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as discussing the sad demise of the UK Lesfic blog. Plus there’s news of LFest, the Golden Crown Literary Conference and the Diva Literary Festival Awards. If you would like to vote for me or anyone else in the Diva Awards, head on over here. Finally, I’m gearing up for the launch of the next book in my London Romance series, A Girl Called London – due out late June! Stay tuned for news of this next lesbian romance!
