Editorial Reviews


Named #1 in The Top 15 Lesbian Books of 2017 by The Lesbian Review

"An Outsider Inside by R J Samuel is the last book I read in 2017 and it also happens to be the very best book I read all year. It's a drama with an intricate mystery at its centre and it left me breathless....An Outsider Inside is one of the best lesbian books that came out in 2017, and possibly just one of the best releases of the year in general. Its story and characters will challenge and teach you, even as its mystery keeps you guessing at what's happening. I can't believe this is the first book I've ever read by Samuel and it surely won't be the last. I cannot recommend An Outsider Inside enough and hope everyone will pick up this book." Tara Scott in The Lesbian Review

"Some stories crawl under your skin, diving deeper until you can't separate yourself from them. Reading that kind of book is like throwing down a time marker, because who you were before is not who you are when you've finished it. And even when you try to explain to someone why it's so important to you, you may not be able to access the right words because you're trying to describe an experience, which is so much more than a plot or set of characters. And yet, try you must because all you want is for someone else to love the book as much as you do. I've had the pleasure of reading a few novels like that in the last few years--Backcast by Ann McMan and Rainbow Gap by Lee Lynch among them--and An Outsider Inside by R J Samuel is the latest." - Curve Magazine

"2017 was a fabulous year for lesbian fiction, and An Outsider Inside is a great example of how authors are pushing boundaries in the genre, releasing rich stories that aren't all romance (even as we continue to need and appreciate all the excellent romance that's coming out too!). By delivering a thrilling mystery, Jaya's metamorphosis, a beautiful love story, and a bold story structure all in one exquisite book, R J Samuel has revealed herself as a master plate spinner and an author to keep an eye on. If you haven't read it, be sure to pick up
An Outsider Inside because this book will make you look for our own biases and will linger long after you've finished it. - LOTL Living True

Finalist for awards voted on by Golden Crown Literary Society (GCLS) readers in the 2017 Ann Bannon Popular Choice Award and the Tee Corinne Cover Design Award. Winners to be announced in July 2018.

About the Author

R J Samuel was born in Nigeria, to Indian parents. She spent many years qualifying to be a medical doctor first in Nigeria, then Ireland, but ran away from home to do a Masters in IT. She settled on IT as a career rather than Medicine as she thought computers might be more logical than people, but that hasn’t always proven to be the case. She remained Ireland for many years, apart from a few years in the southwest of France where she ran a restaurant-bar despite having absolutely no interest in restaurants, except for eating in them. She considers herself almost Irish, almost Indian, and almost American. She now lives in Atlanta in America where, in her latest creative outburst, she wants to establish an artist retreat in a mostly unusable property.
