Read it Write it Sell it – my weekly look at all things book – freebie alert!

Well just a quickie from me this week as I’m up to my eyes in edits for Choc Lit my publishers of Hawaiian Affair – being revamped and reissued in the New Year.


Book Deal of the Week

freebie for Cyber Monday – Diary of a Wannabe Shopping Channel Presenter - here, top left.

Free Saturday till Wednesday

Here goes – an opportunity for you to add to your kindle or kindle app! My stand alone novel was begun many moons ago and finished earlier this year, written in journal style and inspired by the sorts of things you see and hear and experience whilst in shopping telly. Then I crossed it with a bit of Alan Partridge and threw in a dash of HolyMan, the Eddie Murphy movie, all in a Bridget Jones type first-person abbreviated narrative. It follows the fortunes of Abigail, a twenty-something local paper journalist and would-be TV presenter, who seeks her fortune via a whole host of escapades and mishaps as she enters a ‘Search for a Selly-Telly Star’ contest. It’s not at all a true account of real life… (!) and has more than a dose of fiction. Do let me know what you think of it, but please don’t read it if you don’t like summarised prose and diary-style writing. However, DO read it if you love a good ‘yarn’ and mad-cap frivolity, loosely set in a make believe world of shopping telly, at a make believe channel called T.S.C. – ‘The Shopping Channel’! lol. If anyone’s read it, do please put your review at the bottom in ‘comments’

 Click here to see it on Amazon – do read the first free sample before you buy.
