Welcome to episode 49 of the Lesbian Book Club, where I interview New Zealand author Lily Hammond. Lily writes historical romances set in different times and places, where adventurous women dare to follow their hearts, defying convention in their pursuit of happiness. Her recent books have included The Way Home and Alice & Jean, and her reviews on Amazon are off the charts. Lily lives in Dunedin with her partner Valerie. She also writes as Kate Genet and Ana MacKenzie, so a multi-talented author!
I also do a run-down of the Amazon lesbian fiction charts in the US & UK. I talk about what I’ve been up to, including readying my upcoming lesbian romance You’re My Kind for launch in March. Plus, I’ve also been busy writing the next book in my London Romance series, Made In London, due out in May. In lesfic news, the Diva Literary Festival is happening in March in Birmingham, UK. Go to www.divaliteraryfestival.com for more.
Thanks to Denise at the Lesbian Lounge for hosting and producing this podcast, it’s much appreciated!

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…

Welcome to episode 46 of the Lesbian Book Club where I had the pleasure of interviewing US author Elle Spencer, whose book Casting Lacey was the runaway success at the beginning of the year, staying at No.1 in the US for a month. Elle writes angst-filled romance with snark and humour, and I loved Casting Lacey, as did most of the world. She talks about her debut success, her first year as a full-time writer and how she’s excited to take her writing to the next level.
As usual, I also 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 getting my latest book, London, Actually (book five in the London Romance series) ready for launch on October 24th. Plus, my co-written novel with Harper Bliss – Once Upon A Princess – is out now in audiobook, so run and grab it!
The Lesbian Book Club is produced & hosted by The Lesbian Lounge on My Lesbian Radio.

Thrilled to announce that London, Actually, book 5 in the London Romance series, is out now! This is a standalone lesbian romance, so you don’t have to have read the other London Romance books to enjoy this. 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 London Romance series is where it all started for me, and writing new characters as well as visiting the old ones is always like coming home. I hope you enjoy reading it and if you do, a review would be SO appreciated!

Welcome to episode 45 of the Lesbian Book Club where I have the pleasure of interviewing US author Lise MacTague. Lise writes sci-fi, fantasy, supernatural and steampunk, and her latest book is Demon In The Machine, following up on her others including Five Moons Rising and the On Deception’s Edge series. Lise discusses coming up with her immersive worlds, how she loves writing action and why she’d love to be the love child of Nicola Griffith and Meghan O’Brien – quite a pairing!
As usual, I also run down the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as talking about what I’ve been up to, including putting the finishing touches to London, Actually, book five in the London Romance series – out in October!

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.
