I talked to Sheena from The Lesbian Review about After Mrs Hamilton. She asked some very good questions! Here’s the podcast link and I hope you find the interview interesting.
After Mrs Hamilton is also this month’s book club read on the Facebook group The Lesbian Review Book Club. I’ll be answering questions on Saturday the 24th March then the next two days are no-holds barred discussion between the group members only. You can join the group here.
Diva Magazine is running a new literary festival this year and I’m thrilled to be appearing on two panels. It should be the biggest lesfic event in the UK since the days of YLAF with Val McDermid, VG Lee and Kiki Archer all headlining and authors from Bold Strokes, Ylva plus indies taking part. It takes place in Birmingham, weekend of November 3/4/5. More details here.
In the run up to the event, Diva Magazine also interviewed me about Poppy Jenkins, my writing and my thoughts on the festival (it’s bloody exciting!). You can read the interview here.
Diana Simmonds, author of Heart on Fire and Forty Love, is an interesting woman. I got to know her when she edited After Mrs Hamilton and she also now has a new book out. Here’s my interview with her on the Women and Words site.
Interview with Diana Simmonds by Clare Ashton.
I had a lovely Q&A session with Hannah this week. She’d heard about After Mrs Hamilton on C-Spot Reviews and asked me some great questions about that, Pennance and writing in general. The Q&A will be posted on the Lesbrary in a couple of weeks, but you can see it here first: http://hannahsnook.wordpress.com/2013/03/24/interviewing-a-writer-clare-ashton/
