Are you doing Jae’s Sapphic Reading Challenge 2021? If not, maybe you should consider it! There are prizes on offer, as well as the chance to read more widely and be introduced to a ton of new books and authors. Plus, if you join her Facebook group, you could even chat about the books you’ve read with other like-minded readers, too. It’s a triple win!
How does it work? In Jae’s own words: “The goal is to read sapphic books that fit as many of the 50 categories listed as possible. You can read ebooks, paperbacks, or audiobooks; and they can be new-to-you books or re-reads. I’ll post book recommendations for a new category once a week. Of course, you could also just read whatever books you want and then, afterwards, see what categories they fit into. Depending on how many sapphic books you manage to read in 2021, you can earn different badges and book prizes.”
Basically, read books that fit certain tropes, and there are prizes to be had! Plus, you get to call yourself a Book Penguin, a Book Dragon or even a Book Unicorn.
Jae has 50 categories to tick off in her challenge, so I thought I’d list my books and what category they fit in. I’ve got 18 novels, and there are 50 categories. I might miss some matches, but I’m going to do the absolute best I can, and hopefully it might help you to fill your challenge card and puff your reading muscles. Ready? Here goes…

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 43 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview UK author AE Radley. We chat about Amanda’s meteoric rise in the world of lesfic and her crazy-hectic publishing schedule – her recent books include Bring Holly Home and The Road Ahead. Amanda discusses why she doesn’t write sex scenes and how all her books will always contain a large serving of humour.
On top of this month’s star interview, I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, and cover the winners of the recent Golden Crown Literary Awards. Plus, I fill you in on what I’ve been up to, including releasing The London Of Us, book four in the London Romance series.
Finally, don’t forget if you’re in Europe this August, come along to the brand-new European Lesfic Literary Conference – head to: http://ellconmeet.org/
The Lesbian Book Club is hosted and produced by The Lesbian Lounge.
Greetings from sunny London!
The long wait is finally over! The London Of Us, book 4 in the London Romance series, is out now! This is a standalone lesbian romance, so you don’t have to have read the others to enjoy this sumptuous romance between Alice & Rachel – but of course, the rest of the London gang have starring roles. It’s time to pour yourself a drink, settle back and luxuriate in The London Of Us!

I can’t wait to see what you think of the story of Alice & Rachel – it’s a book I loved writing and one I think is pretty special. The London Romance series is where it all started for me, and writing these characters is always like coming home. I hope you enjoy reading it and if you do, a review would be SO appreciated!
The fourth book in my London Romance series – The London Of Us – is out on June 27th, and I can’t wait to get this one out into the world having finished it at the end of March. It’s being held up so we can launch the audiobook, ebook and print all at the same time, so thanks for your patience with this one! To give you a taste, here’s the first chapter – more to come very soon!

Jenny talks about her passion for writing butch/femme romances, having lead protagonists who are polar opposites, and also her busy year ahead with three more books in the works! Plus, she’s got a lovely lilting Scottish accent, so it’s a win-win.
