Welcome to episode 40 of the Lesbian Book Club as I interview fellow UK author Jenny Frame, whose recent books have included Charming The Vicar and Unexpected. Jenny talks about her passion for writing butch/femme romances, having lead protagonists who are polar opposites, and also her busy year ahead with three more books in the works! Plus, she’s got a lovely lilting Scottish accent, so it’s a win-win.
On top of that, I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, and fill you in on what I’ve been up to, including releasing my latest audiobook, Twice In A Lifetime, as well as wrapping up The London Of Us, book four in the London Romance series, due out in June. I also shine the spotlight on the start of awards and conference season, including nominations for this year’s Lambda Literary Awards, the Diva Awards and EllCon, the brand-new European Lesfic Literary Conference on the block coming in August.

Dead chuffed to let you know that my best-seller Twice In A Lifetime is now out in audio! Hooray! Whether you’ve read the book or not, you’re in for a treat as TJ Richards has done a stellar job of narrating the tale of Harriet and Sally, bringing a delicious extra dimension to their story of second-chance romance. An American narrating one of my stories? It’s like I’ve died and gone to heaven ;0)

Thrilled to announce the first three books of my London Romance series are out in audio! The narrators have done a fab job bringing these lesbian romances to life, and I hope you give them a go because I love audiobooks! So if you want to find out how Jess gets on in London Calling, how Kate & Meg meet in This London Love or how Tanya wins Sophie over in A Girl Called London, give these a whirl now!

If you’ve been paying attention, you might have noticed that my London Romance series has a brand-new set of covers – I hope you love them! I decided to give the series a cohesive look so they’re easily identifiable as being linked (despite being standalone books), and I’m really pleased with how they’ve turned out.
The stories inside haven’t changed, with each book focusing on a different couple in this London group of friends. But I thought it was time they got a facelift, and you can expect two more books in this lesbian romance series this year, both with linked covers. So if you haven’t read London Calling, This London Love or A Girl Called London yet, now’s the time to do so before the next books in the series hit the shelves!
Book four, The London Of Us will be out this summer.

In episode 28 of the Lesbian Book Club, I have the pleasure of interviewing award-winning US crime noir author Ann Aptaker.
Ann lives in New York and after years working as an art curator has turned her hand to writing, with spectacular results. She’s just released Genuine Gold – book three in her series about art smuggler Cantor Gold – and it’s already garnering rave reviews. This follows up Ann’s first two books in the series, Criminal Gold and Tarnished Gold, and I’d recommend all three.
Ann talks about her writing and how she puts the focus on emotion in her work, as well as highlighting her love of New York and its history. Give it a listen – Ann is a brilliantly engaging guest, with a cool New York accent to boot!
I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as talking about the final instalment of my All I Want series, All I Want Forever, out now! Get in touch and let me know who you’d like on the podcast! email@example.com

My brand-new novel and the final instalment in the All I Want lesbian romance series – All I Want Forever – is due out on January 27th and I couldn’t be more excited! Tori and Holly have been with me for over a year now, and writing the final scene was brilliant and emotional, as I bid a fond farewell to London’s favourite lesbian couple. At the end of All I Want For Autumn, they were newly engaged, Tori headed for San Francisco, while Holly was jobless. Want to get a taste for what happens next by reading the first chapter of All I Want Forever? Read on…
