About clarelondon

Clare London took her pen name from the city where she lives, loves, and writes. A lone, brave female in a frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home, she juggles her writing with her other day job as an accountant. She’s written in many genres and across many settings, with award-winning novels and short stories published both online and in print. She says she likes variety in her writing while friends say she’s just fickle, but as long as both theories spawn good fiction, she’s happy. Most of her work features male/male romance and drama with a healthy serving of physical passion, as she enjoys both reading and writing about strong, sympathetic, and sexy characters. Clare currently has several novels sulking at that tricky chapter three stage and plenty of other projects in mind... she just has to find out where she left them in that frenetic, testosterone-fuelled family home.

Creative Caravan times!

How would you like to spend a weekend by the sea, reading and writing (and the occasional drinking!) with a group of your fellow authors?

Enjoy the post this week at Love Bytes Reviews where author Ana Newfolk reports on her latest fabulous weekend writing retreat in Hastings on the English south coast. I’ve been on a couple of these retreats, and they were both productive and FUN! Ana explains the positives of it so well <3.


“…I am looking forward to the next one but I hope that sharing my experience has maybe inspired you to find your own way to retreat and do something you love with your own tribe of like-minded people.”

 


Bio

Ana Newfolk was born in Portugal where she grew up surrounded by sunshine and countryside.  She has always had a deep love of reading, and ever since she can remember her favorite presents and treats have always been books. She would often be found in her not-so-secret spot reading her favorite adventure books (when she was younger) and romance novels (when she discovered boys). At 20 years old she moved to the UK where she has lived since.

In 2015 Ana stumbled across her first MM romance novel by chance, and she was hooked. She loves reading about men falling in love, hard, fast and ever so sweetly. This new found love for LGBTQ+ romance has opened a new world for Ana, and in 2017 she decided to finally listen to the voices in her head and write them down.

In addition to the time she spends reading and writing Ana has a full-time job that involves meeting lots of people with interesting stories to tell. She also loves baking as much as she loves watching people eat what she creates, much to the delight of family, friends and work colleagues alike.

New Release – Inside Man

AND AVAILABLE IN KINDLE UNLIMITED


A new sexy paranormal short story from me (also previously published in the Myths, Moons, and Mayhem anthology, now with some extra word count).

BLURB: “There’s that joke, where the ghost doesn’t go to the party because he has no body to go with?

Well, I’m in no position to find it funny. Nowadays, I’m caught in a spirit limbo, unable to touch, and my only entertainment is to watch lovers together.

Like this cute couple Jake and Benjy, having a few problems with their relationship. Nothing some honest talk and good loving wouldn’t put right, I reckon. I follow them home, led selfishly by curiosity, mischief, or maybe just loneliness.

But I stay around for far more personal reasons.”

Confessions of a Reckless Reader

Come on over to my guest post at Joyfully Jay’s this week, where I’m talking about reading ‘river-deep and mountain-high’ – and to hell with being pigeonholed by genre!

“Who knows why a certain book catches our eye? We appreciate our friends’ recommendations, but reading a book is so personal you can’t rely on having the same reaction. You may be looking for a sweet contemporary romance but suddenly be attracted to a striking cover, or the blurb for a dark BDSM, or a coming-of-age drama from the other side of the world. I’ve done all that. You tell yourself, there’s just *something about it*…Surrender to that urge, I say!

And please let me know what you think, about keeping all your options open

On the Red Carpet – Avylinn Winter’s new release

and available in Kindle Unlimited
xxx
Blurb: Chris Sinclair fades under a dark cloud after losing his mother to cancer. On the cusp of adulthood, he doesn’t know where he should go or how to get there. But watching life pass him by was never the plan, and when he is forced to attend a concert in an attempt to coax him out of his shell, he discovers that life might have more to offer. 

Dante Heron holds the audience between his delicate bow and the tips of his fingers. He plays the violin as if every heart is his to command, but the discipline needed to perfect his skills has left him with nothing to spare. He’s a fire that burns too bright or not at all—unpredictable and demanding.

When Chris is unexpectedly offered a job to travel around Europe as Dante’s assistant, or ‘friend’, he surprises himself by accepting. Their journey barely starts before Chris realizes he’s in over his head. Every step along the way is fraught with tension, and the farther they go, the closer they veer to a breaking point.

Invisible strings are at play, stitched into Dante’s life by those who should have taught him how to love. Perhaps Chris is right to be afraid, but sometimes, what you fear the most is what you can’t afford to lose. Continue reading

 Read the reviews, including the latest 5* at Love Bytes Reviews:
“…Thus, curiosity drew me in, and before long I was hooked. Freeman holds his cards close to his chest, though he does think a lot. Even then, he tells an intriguing tale while keeping the ability to surprise…”

“…The supporting characters from Freeman’s ex-lover to his ex-wife to the villain himself are all three dimensional, their interaction with Freeman just as intense. I enjoy the twists and turns in the plot especially the suspense towards the end. Like a cat and mouse game, we just hold our breath as the plot unfolds. I really appreciate this M/M romance thriller which is so distinct from the usual. Do not miss this one. Bravo Clare!” (Amazon reviewer)

“…I could not put this one down till I finished either. It is a romance which reads in wonderfully thriller like way. I was fascinated and could not wait to find out what is Freeman’s deal and what does he want and whether he and Kit will stay together.” (Sirius, Amazon “Vine Voice” reviewer)

“…This is fantastic writing – dark and rich and gritty – and has a main character to die for.” (Anne Brooke, author)
