The Lesbian Book Club With Monica McCallan

Episode 53 of the Lesbian Book Club sees me chat with US author Monica McCallan. Her latest book, Good Spin, is a mash-up of friends to lovers and the fake girlfriend trope. Who doesn’t love those? Monica has been writing and publishing for two years and her other novels include Back To The Start, Better Than A Dream and Sweat Equity. She talks about working at her craft, juggling a full-time job, listening to readers and how much she loves craft beer.

Then I do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. I also delve into the winners of the Golden Crown Literary Society awards, the Oscars of the lesbian fiction world. Plus, I chat about my recent happenings, including launching A Taste Of Love, book two in The Village Romance Series; and commissioning the audio for You’re My Kind. Phew!

The Lesbian Book Club is hosted and produced by Denise at My Lesbian Radio. Thanks so much to her!

The Lesbian Book Club: 2018 Wrap-Up!

Welcome to episode 48 of the Lesbian Book Club as I round up the end-of-year Amazon lesbian fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as reviewing my favourite lesfic Christmas books.

There’s no interview this month. Instead, I take a look through the goals I set back in January to see if I hit them or not. It’s your chance to peek behind the curtain of a lesbian fiction author’s year and see how things work and how I tick. Did I write the books I said I would? Did I read the books I intended? Did I get guns of steel? And did I propel myself into public speaking like a demon? Take a listen and find out.

Thanks so much to Denise at the Lesbian Lounge for hosting & producing this podcast, it’s much appreciated!

The Lesbian Book Club with Suzie Carr

Welcome to episode 30 of the Lesbian Book Club, where I had the pleasure of interviewing US author Suzie Carr. Not only was Suzie a fantastic guest, she’s also a hugely popular author on the lesbian scene. Her books include the likes of Sandcastles, The Dance and most recently, Beneath Everything, which focused on the healing power of slowing down and taking things more slowly. She also hosts a podcast called Curves Welcome as part of The Lesbian Review platform, she’s an avid blogger and describes herself as philanthropist as well as an author. Frankly, she’ll leave you breathless!

As usual, I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as talking about the nominations for the Goldies, the Diva Literary Awards and nominations, and the new service from Ladylit Publishing, My Lesfic – find it at www.mylesfic.com. If you would like to vote for me or anyone else in the Diva Awards (Romance category, Nothing To Lose, hint, hint), head on over to www.divaliteraryfestival.com/nominate-now.html.
