Writing Historical Fiction

Big London Dreams was my 19th lesbian romance novel, but the first one set in any other time but the present day. Writing an historical novel scared me at first, but then I decided to do what scared me. I gave myself extra time to do the research and editing, and a little bit more to get over my publishing nerves. Now I’ve done it, what are my key takeaways?

Big London Dreams: On Location

My upcoming lesbian romance is very personal to me, even though I wasn’t born in the 1950s. It’s close to my heart because my parents met and dated in 1950s London, and my mum grew up on the White City estate in west London, where the book is partly set. My first historical romance charts the illicit affair between Joan Hart and Eunice Humphries. Like my mum, both work in a clothing factory as machinists. Everything else is conjured up from my imagination, but the fact there’s a sprinkling of my mum’s life in it made this book a real treat to write… Continue reading » “Big London Dreams: On Location”

Hot London Nights: Check Out India’s Flat!

One of my guilty pleasures is looking at property websites and watching property shows. In another life, I’d have been great at selling homes! When I decided to make Gina Gupta an upmarket estate agent (running Hot London Properties) in my new book, Hot London Nights, I knew the other lead, India Contelli, should be looking for a flat and that’s how they’d meet. I also knew I’d get to check out fabulous London pads in the name of research. Want to have a look at the property I based India’s flat on? Step this way…

Jae’s Sapphic Reading Challenge: Start Here!

Are you doing Jae’s Sapphic Reading Challenge 2021? If not, maybe you should consider it! There are prizes on offer, as well as the chance to read more widely and be introduced to a ton of new books and authors. Plus, if you join her Facebook group, you could even chat about the books you’ve read with other like-minded readers, too. It’s a triple win!

How does it work? In Jae’s own words: “The goal is to read sapphic books that fit as many of the 50 categories listed as possible. You can read ebooks, paperbacks, or audiobooks; and they can be new-to-you books or re-reads. I’ll post book recommendations for a new category once a week. Of course, you could also just read whatever books you want and then, afterwards, see what categories they fit into. Depending on how many sapphic books you manage to read in 2021, you can earn different badges and book prizes.”

Basically, read books that fit certain tropes, and there are prizes to be had! Plus, you get to call yourself a Book Penguin, a Book Dragon or even a Book Unicorn.

Jae has 50 categories to tick off in her challenge, so I thought I’d list my books and what category they fit in. I’ve got 18 novels, and there are 50 categories. I might miss some matches, but I’m going to do the absolute best I can, and hopefully it might help you to fill your challenge card and puff your reading muscles. Ready? Here goes…

Hot London Nights Out Now!

Hello & happy February from me to you!

I have BIG London Romance series news: book seven, Hot London Nights, is out now! If you’re a fan of witty, British lesbian romance, this is the book for you. Plus, while it’s part of the London Romance series, it can also be read as standalone novel, too. If you’ve read the rest, get ready to dive into the latest. If you’re new to the series, welcome!

You’re going to love this book because:

1. It’s the story of India, a heartbroken TV star, and Gina, a love-shy late bloomer. These characters are sure to get under your skin and make you root for them!

2. It’s got family drama and steamy romance amid dreamy London rooftops. Also, chocolate biscuits galore.

3. It’s got a bonus second-chance love story that will melt your heart. Trust me on this.

4. It’s your chance to catch up with everyone’s favourite London lesbians including Jess & Lucy, Kate & Meg, Alice & Rachel, Tanya & Sophie and Eden & Heidi!

5. The story is sprinkled with next-level romantic stardust. Who knows, it might just rub off on you!

It’s been over a year since the last book in the London Romance series, and I hope this one keeps you engaged in the stories and the city, and most of all, wanting book eight (out later this year).

I hope you enjoy the story of Gina and India – do let me know what you think.
