News Roundup: Rachel Dax’s bedtime story, Diana Souhami’s bio of Radclyffe Hall, and Jane Fletcher in conversation

14 May

Rachel Dax has recorded a short story exclusively for the Liz McMullen show. Over on the site, you can listen to Rachel read How I admin-ajaxMet My True Love, or download the story as a PDF.

Rachel has written the most unusual story, exclusively for the show. This is the first bedtime story that would be perfectly all right to share with a general audience. Oh and there is a sweetener: she has an awesome British accent!


6Diana Souhami has new paperback and Kindle editions of her biographies out this month with revised introductions, including LGBT titles Gluck, Natalie and Romaine, and the classic The Trials of Radclyffe Hall.  Diana Souhami is a winner of the Lambda Literary Award and the Whitbread Prize, and has been shortlisted for the James Tait Black Prize for Biography. Read more about the biographies here.


On Friday, we will be the very happy hosts of  an ongoing Blog Conversation that is taking part betweenfletcher Bold Strokes authors Jane Fletcher and Nora Olsen, this week and early into next. Jane (author of the Celaeno series and the Lyremouth Chronicles) and Nora (whose second YA novel Swans and Klons is published this month) will be chatting about their writing processes, their love of their chosen genres, and the thrill of being published.

You can find the first part of their conversation here on the BSB blog. We will be posting the second part on Friday, and the whole thing wraps up over at Women and Words on Tuesday.

    I just wanted to write and say that I just finished reading, “Desolation Point” and was blown away! I hadn’t realized that I had read Ms. Hunter’s works before until I seen that “Snowbound” was another of her works. Once I started reading Desolation Point I couldn’t put it down until I finished it. And for me to write someone about a book is rare indeed. The plot was wonderful. I love the drama of the chase all during the book. I would love to see the characters of Alex and Sarah continued in another story. Hats off to you Ms. Hunter, I look forward to reading your work again!!

      Thank you, Sharon, that’s lovely to hear. There actually is a follow up to Desolation Point coming out in 2014. It’s called Tumbledown, Alex and Sarah are back and getting into more strife and as soon as I have a concrete release date for it, I’ll be sure to let people know 🙂 Cheers again for getting in touch.
