You can find the book here
Thank you for coming along!
I’ll only keep you here for half an hour or so – with some excerpts, music from the book, virtual drinks, nibbles and some prizes – props from the book!
[This post will grow as I add more information during the launch – please check back for updates. If you come to the post after 8pm on 19th June it will be complete and probably rather longer than my usual posts!]
First of all let’s get the party going with the starter track on my playlist…. just click the box below to listen.
This is the song that is playing at the start of Chapter 1… arguably a catalyst for the events that follow.
Picture the scene… a Working Men’s Club… a “do” for the employees of a local warehousing business…
In the words of Lyn, the first person narrator of this tale, here is the opening paragraph of the book:
“You can’t blame the music for what happened. You can’t blame the budget-brand vodka or the own-brand cola. You can’t blame anyone but me and the great gaping hole I used to know as ME.”
As we’re talking drinks and this is a party – anyone for a glass of bubbly to celebrate with me?
Back to Lyn and her colleagues:
“It was a big Friday feeling with a gap-toothed glitter ball and spotlights with their faded pink cellophane glamour.”
Get the picture?
Now it’s time for the first little competition. As I mentioned when you arrived, the prizes are all props from the story… I will reveal them during the course of the party. To be in the draw for all the prizes (one per person) fill in the rafflecopter below…
And the first prize out of the hat will be… a rather lovely disco glitter ball (on a keyring!)
Enter your details once below, to have a chance to win this or one of the other prizes coming up shortly (only one entry needed to have a chance for all the prizes).
Unfortunately this competition is closed – but here is another where you could win a copy of the e-book of Love in a Hopeless Place – the draw for this is on the 2nd of July 2013.

Ah slight problem… we’ve started drinking this too…
Never mind, a substitute prize… a copy of the book itself
and another romantic track….
Back to the plot… A member of Lyn’s family is a night-club bouncer, but maybe not at The Seahorse Club. My last prize is your own membership pin to that very club… a beautiful enamel and crystal confection – the very seahorse at the heart of the club logo….
To finish this off with my usual flourish… these are my thoughts as I have partied this evening, from the social club glitter ball my thought reflections are patterned out below……
