The Lesbian Book Club: 2018 Wrap-Up!

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!

Best Lesbian Christmas Books

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…

All I Want For Christmas Hits USA Today!

All I Want For Christmas cover

All I Want For Christmas is the first lesbian romance where I truly embraced farce. It’s a romantic comedy at heart – my favourite genre – but it’s also where I stepped up the cringe-worthy farce factor, putting Tori Hammond through the wringer on her way to finding love. I defy you read the book and not laugh out loud, but also cringe out loud!

The Lesbian Book Club With Lise Gold

Welcome to episode 47 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview UK-based author Lise Gold whose book Fireflies has been bothering the top of the charts this autumn. Lise has been writing for a couple of years, and her other books include French Summer and The Cruise. She chats about her passion for travel, why she loves to write true love stories and how her previous job as a designer has helped her creative writing process.

Then I do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. I also chat about what I’ve been up to, including launching my latest book, London, Actually (book five in the London Romance series), and putting my All I Want series into Kindle Unlimited. If you want a rom-com for the festive season, pick up All I Want For Christmas now!

My London Tourist Guide

Of all the things readers ask when they write to me, one of the most common questions is: “I’m coming to London on holiday, what should I see?”

This, as you might imagine, is a big question. London is a huge city with loads on offer. If you like museums, this list might not be for you. But if you like walking, water, music, food, drink and exploring London’s hidden gems, then there might be something here that tickles your fancy.

If I was a tourist in London, here are the top ten things I’d recommend…

Thrilled to announce that London, Actually, book 5 in the London Romance series, is out now!

But if you have, you’ll recognise a few familiar faces popping up throughout this sumptuous romantic comedy. It’s time to make a hot chocolate, settle back in your favourite armchair and lose yourself in London, Actually!

I can’t wait to see what you think of the story of Becca & Cleo – the unlikely love match of the year.

The Lesbian Book Club with Jenny Frame

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.
