Welcome to episode 26 of the Lesbian Book Club – and this month, I’m shaking it up a little, doing a round-up of the year in the last podcast of 2016!
As usual, I’ll be checking out what’s hot in the Amazon Lesbian fiction charts in both the US and UK, as well as running down the results of the Rainbow Awards for lesbian fiction, which includes former podcast guests as winners – namely Clare Ashton and Cari Hunter.

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.

Well done to all the finalists, runners-up and the winners!
It’s been a great start to the week for my debut novel London Calling, which came second in the 2014 Rainbow Awards Best Cover Contest, making it through from hundreds of initial entries. I still love the cover and the congratulations should go to my designer and friend Kevin Pruitt who did a stellar job. Well done to all the winners & runners-up, and a huge round of applause to Eliza Reviews for putting together the whole shebang.
My first novel, London Calling, is up for Cover of the Year in the annual Rainbow Awards which is ace. The numbers have been whittled down from loads to just 15 covers and it’s open to a public vote until November 29th to decide the winner. The rules are simple – you have to vote for at least three covers and provide your email address. That’s it. A vote for London Calling would be much appreciated. Thanks!
