Exciting news – You’re My Kind has been translated into German and is out now, entitled Weil Es Immer Noch Liebe Ist! This is my fourth German translation done in conjunction with Ylva Publishing, and I’m as excited about this as I was about the first! If you loved Justine and Maddie in English, why not give them a whirl in German? Lesbian romance with lashings of cake and all the feels right here!
It’s safe to say that 2021 was not the year we all thought it would be. At the start, I had dreams the pandemic would be done and dusted by the summer, and life would return to some form of normality. It didn’t. For me personally, it was also the year that family issues led to me not working as much as I intended. Life happens! However, in a year when many died and even more are still suffering viral after-effects, I consider getting through the past 12 months without getting covid a win. Plus, I still managed to get stuff done. If you’re interested to know what, here’s my 2021 wrap-up…

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…
So let’s get this out of the way first: 2020. Crikey bananas, what a year. I went into it full of optimism, but after March, things took a decided turn for the worst. But for all the terrible things around the world, business-wise at least, 2020 was my best year yet. I know. I’m not going to dwell on the pandemic, divisive politics and racism: 2020 had them all. This blog entry is going to see how 2020 was for me professionally. Did I hit my goals? Did I publish books? Did I survive? If you want to know the sticky details, read on… Continue reading » “My Goals For 2020: How Did I Do?”
Welcome to episode 50 of the Lesbian Book Club where I interview UK author Anna Larner. We chat about Anna’s brand-new book Love’s Portrait, as well as her debut, the well received Highland Fling. Anna’s debut was a finalist in the GCLS awards, as well as being recommended as a Top Ten Summer Read by AfterEllen. She talks about the craft of writing, the importance of never giving up and why Leicester is the perfect canvas for her stories.
I also do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK. As usual, I chat about what I’ve been up to, including releasing You’re My Kind, my latest lesbian romance, and writing book six in the London Romance series, out later this year.
If you’d like to see me reading and chatting live, I’ll be appearing at Happy Valley Pride in Hebden Bridge on July 27th. Come along and say hi!
It’s been a long time in the making, but my second-chance lesbian romance, You’re My Kind, is finally out and in the world. Rejoice!
You’re going to love this book because:
1. It’s a gorgeous second-chance romance.
2. The lead character runs a cake school. Who doesn’t love cake?
3. It deals with love & grief, so you might need a tissue.
4. It’s flecked with British wit & charm
5. It’s my most emotional book yet. I guarantee it’ll give you ALL THE FEELS.
It’s time to make a hot chocolate, settle back in your favourite armchair, cut a slice of cake and lose yourself in You’re My Kind!
I put my heart and soul into this one, and I hope you enjoy reading the story of Justine & Maddie. Do let me know what you think. You can read the full blurb here.

Her recent books have included The Way Home and Alice & Jean, and her reviews on Amazon are off the charts. Lily lives in Dunedin with her partner Valerie. She also writes as Kate Genet and Ana MacKenzie, so a multi-talented author!
