Welcome to episode 60 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview US author Anna Burke. Anna writes a crossover of fantasy and sci-fi, and more recently has turned her hand to romance. Her award-winning debut, Compass Rose, had lesbian pirates, and her latest, Nottingham, is a queer retelling of Robin Hood. Is there a strong theme throughout her books? Anna says: “I like to write strong female characters. Ones that you want to have sex with, but ones who might also kill you.”
I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. My new book, a co-write with TB Markinson, is due out on June 16th – title and cover reveal coming soon.

I’m thrilled to announce that TB Markinson and I have launched a brand-new weekly podcast called Lesbians Who Write. It’s about… well, lesbians who write. We decided not to be cryptic. People like us!
If you’ve ever wanted to draw back the curtain on the writer’s life, join us every Monday as we put out a new episode talking about what it is to be a writer in 2019, what it is to write lesbian fiction and the ups and downs of the writer’s life. If you’re a reader, it’s a fascinating insight behind the books. If you’re a writer, we hope you can relate.
Join us every Monday – the first three episodes are already up. For more information, go here: www.lesbianswhowrite.com
Welcome to episode 41 of the Lesbian Book Club as I interview US author TB Markinson, whose recent books have included The Fall Girl and A Family Woman. TB talks about being an American in London, the highs and lows of living the writing life, the magic of characters and story, and why she started her new website www.iheartlesfic.com to serve the lesbian fiction community.
As usual, I also do a run-down of the Amazon lesbian fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as highlighting the shortlists for the Diva Awards and the Goldies – Diva is taking place in June in London, and the Goldies in July in Las Vegas. Tickest are still available for both! Plus, if you’re in the UK, don’t forget EllCon, the brand-new European Lesfic Literary Conference on the block coming in August. For more on that, head to: http://ellconmeet.org/
As if that wasn’t enough, I also fill you in on what I’ve been up to, including wrapping up The London Of Us, book four in the London Romance series (due out in June); and writing my joint lesbian romance with Harper Bliss – called Once Upon A Princess – a royal romance due out at the end of May.
