Im sorry I’ve not blogged this week…The Hubster had a staycation and we went away for a few days, and now, I’m really struggling to get back into a routine. Will need to be more focused come Tuesday because its the start of the 100K in 100 Days Challenge. This is where we write 1000 words a day for 100 days. Im really looking forward to it as i need something to give me a push lol
But the real reason I’ve popped in today is…
…to congratulate my fellow writer and friend Jo Phillips on the publication of her latest book.
I went up to Shropshire last year to meet Jo when she released her last book and had lunch with the lovely lady herself (and her family).
I’m hugely embarrassed to say that although i have all Jo’s books, i have only read the first one, Cant Live Without, which i loved. All the others are in storage (from the house move, along with 90% of all my books). I can’t wait to get them back out :)
The thing i love about Jo is that she’s such a great advocate for Self Publishing, and an inspiration to all writers that you can do it, although, she works bloody hard! If you’re thinking about going down the Indie route, please check out Jo’s blog, its a wealth of information.
Anyway, Jo’s new book, Cupids Way looks like a cracker, and at only 99p what are you waiting for? ;)
Cupid’s Way – the new romantic comedy from Joanne Phillips
“When Evie Stone’s grandparents enlist her help to save their home in Cupid’s Way, Evie is happy to oblige. On the cusp of her thirties, and still disappointingly single, Evie’s so-called dream job with a firm of architects has been driving her crazy for months. What she needs, even more than a new man, is a challenge.
But saving Cupid’s Way won’t be easy. A perfectly preserved Victorian terrace, surrounded by modern estates and retail parks, the street is a proud oasis of quirky characters, cobbled pathways and communal gardens. Unfortunately, it also sits on prime development land worth millions.
Dynamite Construction have the deal in the bag, and soon the residents of Cupid’s Way will be forced to sell up and ship out – CEO Michael Andrews, charismatic and super-successful, has certainly never let sentimentality get in the way of business. At least, he hadn’t until he met Evie Stone.”
Joanne Phillips lives in rural Shropshire with her husband and young daughter. She’s the author of romantic comedies Can’t Live Without and The Family Trap, and the Flora Lively series of mysteries. Can’t Live Without was an Amazon top 20 bestseller in 2012 and her books regularly appear on category bestseller lists. Before becoming a writer, Joanne had jobs as diverse as hairdresser, air hostess and librarian, but now divides her time between writing and finding creative ways to avoid housework. She’s a fan of super-dark chocolate, iced coffee and Masterchef. Joanne blogs about writing and publishing Writers Journey.
Right, I’m off to Amazon to order my copy…
