Here’s the first reveal for the cover of my new book, A Taste Of Love, due out on July 24th! The book is part of a trilogy I’ve written with popular lesfic authors TB Markinson and Harper Bliss. All three books will be published two weeks apart, and TB Markinson’s A Shot At Love is already on sale. Read it now, and get ready for book two, written by me!
Welcome to episode 52 of the Lesbian Book Club as I interview US author Denise Warner, who also happens to be the brains behind The Lesbian Lounge and MyLesbianRadio! We chat about Denise’s new books “The Player” and “The Player 2”, and Denise tells me what it’s been like finally getting her book out into the world and becoming a published author. We talk writing what you know, how to harness finishing energy, writing the next book and the power of taking a chance and putting yourself out there.
I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. Plus, I take a look at the the winners of the Lambda Literary awards. Finally, I talk about what I’ve been up to, including getting my next lesbian romance “A Taste Of Love” almost to the finish line. Launch date is July 24th. Whoop!
I’ll be appearing at Happy Valley Pride in Hebden Bridge on July 27th. Tickets are available at www.happyvalleypride.com
As usual, I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as chatting about the upcoming lesfic awards season. I also take some time to tell you what I’ve been up to, including releasing the audiobook of London, Actually, book five in the London Romance series. I’m also working on my upcoming village romance, set in the Cotswolds.
I’ll be appearing at Happy Valley Pride in Hebden Bridge on July 27th.
In this episode, Clare & TB talk about their titanic/epic weeks, that included weeing the woods and seeing Michelle Obama speak. Who did what? Listen to the episode and find out!
TB turns the table on Clare and asks knowing what Clare knows now, how would she launch a book? Clare outlines several things she’d do differently. The big takeaway is to be nice. It ain’t rocket science. Also, have a mailing list, an ARC team and a willingness to share and connect.
TB shares why she started her website I Heart Lesfic. The short story, she got the stiff arm from other lesbian fiction websites when she first started out and she felt lonely. Now, TB wants to help other authors feel like they have support in the community. They both discuss certain services they use to make launching books easier.
Stop back next week when Clare and TB will be discussing their top tips for authors. If you’d like to leave a comment on the episode, head on over to www.lesbianswhowrite.com. We’d love to hear from you!
It’s been a long time in the making, but my second-chance lesbian romance, You’re My Kind, is finally out and in the world. Rejoice!
You’re going to love this book because:
1. It’s a gorgeous second-chance romance.
2. The lead character runs a cake school. Who doesn’t love cake?
3. It deals with love & grief, so you might need a tissue.
4. It’s flecked with British wit & charm
5. It’s my most emotional book yet. I guarantee it’ll give you ALL THE FEELS.
It’s time to make a hot chocolate, settle back in your favourite armchair, cut a slice of cake and lose yourself in You’re My Kind!
I put my heart and soul into this one, and I hope you enjoy reading the story of Justine & Maddie. Do let me know what you think. You can read the full blurb here.
I’m thrilled to announce that TB Markinson and I have launched a brand-new weekly podcast called Lesbians Who Write. It’s about… well, lesbians who write. We decided not to be cryptic. People like us!
If you’ve ever wanted to draw back the curtain on the writer’s life, join us every Monday as we put out a new episode talking about what it is to be a writer in 2019, what it is to write lesbian fiction and the ups and downs of the writer’s life. If you’re a reader, it’s a fascinating insight behind the books. If you’re a writer, we hope you can relate.
Join us every Monday – the first three episodes are already up. For more information, go here: www.lesbianswhowrite.com
My upcoming release, You’re My Kind, is second-chance romance that features all the big topics: love, death and cake. It’s due out on March 21st, but if you can’t wait till then, here’s the opening chapter to whet your appetite…

Welcome to episode 48 of the Lesbian Book Club as I round up the end-of-year Amazon lesbian fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as reviewing my favourite lesfic Christmas books.
There’s no interview this month. Instead, I take a look through the goals I set back in January to see if I hit them or not. It’s your chance to peek behind the curtain of a lesbian fiction author’s year and see how things work and how I tick. Did I write the books I said I would? Did I read the books I intended? Did I get guns of steel? And did I propel myself into public speaking like a demon? Take a listen and find out.
Thanks so much to Denise at the Lesbian Lounge for hosting & producing this podcast, it’s much appreciated!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! For me, that’s true. I adore the run-up to Christmas, it’s just the day itself that’s a bit of an anti-climax. But late November and all of December are my absolute faves – and the thing I love most are Christmas movies. Unexpected snow storm? Tick. Stuck in a picturesque cabin with an impossibly good-looking stranger? Tick. Been summoned home to deal with a family crisis, and whaddayaknow, you bump into your first love? Tick, tickety, tick! But much as I love Christmas movies, what I wouldn’t give for one with two women in the starring romantic roles – and that’s where queer Christmas books come in! Festive stories abound this time of year, so if you want your fix of yuletide love with some women at the helm, step this way. Here are my picks for a lesbian Christmas tale, best served with mulled wine and a Lindt Santa…
