As well as cracking on with the third book in my London Romance series – A Girl Called London – this spring I’ve also been busy auditioning narrators for my best-selling lesbian romance, Nothing To Lose. I’m thrilled to let you all know the book has now been commissioned and should be on the digital shelves by the end of summer – exciting times!
For World Book Day this year, I was really thrilled to be invited along to the offices of Transport For London by their LGBT group, OUTBound.
Over the course of a lunchtime, I did readings from my lesbian romance novels This London Love and Nothing To Lose, as well as answering a slew of questions on life as an indie author. It was a lot of fun and I met some ace people, plus I got to see the Pride crossing which is in plum position in TFL’s foyer – win!
I hope you spent World Book Day curled up with your favourite book!
New year, new ambitions. For 2017, I’ve come up with a whole new set of goals to hit to make this year my best one yet as a lesbian romance author. They include writing, travelling, reading more widely and living a positive life – and I plan on doing that starting from now. Want to delve into my goals and see the targets I’ve set for myself? Then read on…
Back in January 2016, I set out my goals for the year – the first time I’d ever done so in public. You can read the post here. So how did I do? Seeing as I didn’t actually check my goals after March (for shame!), actually not too badly. 2016 was the year I ramped up my production of books, so come with me as I look back on my goals for 2016 and see what happened along the way…
It was awesome to wake up to the news this morning that my novel, Nothing To Lose, had scored a Runner-Up spot in the Rainbow Awards 2016, in the category of Best Contemporary Lesbian Romance! I loved writing this book, so I’m thrilled that readers connected with it so brilliantly too.
If you’d like to read the full list of winners and runners-up, click here for more. The winner was Clare Ashton’s Poppy Jenkins, which was thoroughly deserved – it was one of my favourite lesfic books of 2016.
Well done to all the finalists, runners-up and the winners!

Welcome to episode 20 of The Lesbian Book Club where I interview US lesfic author Jove Belle (Cake, The Job, Uncommon Romance). Jove is a writer and editor, as well as one of the founders of the famed lesfic blog Women & Words. She tells me all about her writing process, how she’s happy writing romance, erotica and political stories, plus all about her new Bitterroot series.
As usual, I also give a run-down of the Amazon lesbian fiction charts for the US and the UK, as well as revealing this year’s Lambda Literary winners. Plus, I share what I’ve been up to over the past month, including the release of my new lesbian romance Nothing To Lose. If you’d like to get in touch and suggest a guest on the show, mail me and let me know!
