Writing A Girl Called London

AGCL-FINAL-300x480When I first started thinking about writing the third book in the London Romance series, I wasn’t sure which character to focus on – should I choose one from a previous book, or should I make up a fresh one? But then Tanya kept knocking at my plot door, and she was quite persistent. I wondered if she’d been too much as Meg’s stroppy ex in This London Love, but by the end of that book, she’d redeemed herself. The die was cast: Tanya was going to be the linking character.

A Girl Called London: Cover Reveal!

AGCL-FINAL-300x480

A Girl Called London, the long-awaited follow-up to London Calling and This London Love, is back from the editor with a thumbs-up – hurrah! Now it just needs to go out to some early readers, and my copy editor, and I will be launching when I return from holiday in late June. Woohoo! And drum roll please – here’s the fab cover! I hope you love it as much as I do, and I’ll be showcasing the first couple of chapters of my new lesbian romance later this week. Stay tuned for more updates soon!

A Girl Called London is a standalone novel in the London Romance series. You don’t have to have read London Calling or This London Love to enjoy it, but why not read them first so you can get the most out of it?

World Book Day Reading

TFL-CropFor 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!

Round-Up Of 2016 Goals: How Did I Do?

2016-2017-jump

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…

2015: Ten Things I Learned

Brighton Pride 2015
Me hosting the Brighton Pride Literature tent.

Farewell then, 2015. You’ve been immense. If I had to describe you in three words, I’d say challenging, rewarding and fattening (the life of a writer doesn’t involve a whole lot of moving). But I’ve learned so much, sold a stack of lesbian romance books and I plan to build and grow on that success in the coming year. 2015 was the year I started to take writing seriously. In doing so, I guaranteed that 2015 was without a doubt my busiest year yet. And being busy means you learn stuff – stuff like this…
