Introducing a New Box Set: Have Chick Lit, Will Travel

After Wimbledon is going to be part of a new box set, which we’re launching on Friday.  As a special introductory offer, we’re pricing it at only 99c/99p.  That’s three whole novels for less than a pound!  Absolute steal.

Have Chick Lit - High ResolutionWe’re having a launch party on Friday on Facebook and I’d love it if you’d join us.  We’ll be giving away copies of the box set, as well as other great prizes, and having fun discussions.  You’ll also be able to ask us questions.  Because we’re in three different time zones, the party is in three stages.  It’s at 6-8pm in each one: AEST (Sydney – hosted by Monique McDonell), GMT (London – hosted by me) and PDT (LA – hosted by Geralyn Corcillo).

The theme of the box set is a world tour and gives you the chance to read chick lit from three different countries.  The other books in the set are:

SHE LIKES IT TOUGH by Geralyn Corcillo

“Hilarious story that is well paced and very original. You don’t want to miss this sassy crazy romance!”

— Lost in Chick Lit

When a freak fast-food accident almost kills scaredy-cat Lisa, she decides it’s time to get a backbone and really start living. But how is she supposed to get tough after a lifetime of watching from the couch?

Jack Hawkins, that’s how. When Lisa finds out that the outdoor extremist needs a clueless urbanite to test his top-secret line of beginners’ adventure gear, she makes the most outlandish deal of her life: she will be his test dummy if he helps her become brave.

But are there enough wild adventures in the world to help Lisa find the grit to pursue a career she really wants or the nerve to stand up to her bullying family?  And what about going after the man who’s not afraid of anything… except falling for Lisa?

Winner of Best Indie Book and Best Humor Book at the Rebecca’s Reads Choice Awards 2013.

MR RIGHT AND OTHER MONGRELS by Monique McDonell

“Truly loved every minute that I was reading this book!” — Smitten With Reading, Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer

Quietly and independently wealthy, Ally Johnson runs a charming second-hand bookshop in beachside Manly and is blissfully happy doing it. Heck, sometimes she even goes downstairs from her flat to run the shop in her Chinese silk pyjamas. It sounds perfect. But when dog-phobic Ally is rescued from an exuberant canine by Teddy Green, Australia’s hottest TV celebrity, her life begins to change dramatically!

Despite her best efforts to resist his charm, Ally finds herself falling for him. Supported by her eccentric family and her fabulous gay friend Justin, Allegra embarks on an on-again, off-again romance with Teddy, complicated by his jealous ex-girlfriend, fashionista Louisa, and her own narcissistic hippy mother Moonbeam.

Will Ally be able to overcome her insecurities and find happiness with Teddy, or will his celebrity lifestyle prove to be too much?

~~~~

Both books have great ratings on Amazon and I’m sure you’ll enjoy them.  And, when you’re getting all three for less than the usual price of one, you can’t go far wrong.

Have Chick Lit, Will Travel can be pre-ordered from Smashwords (all ebook formats) now and will be on Amazon on Friday and other ebook sites after that.

Please come join us for the launch party (and invite your friends).  I’ve never done one before, so I need your support!

Work in Progress – July 2014

Lots going on right now.  Really must learn not to take on so much at once!

TDPP_audio-book__2The Dr Pepper Prophecies Audio Book
My voice artist has recorded 26 of 33 chapters, 20 have been edited by her and I’ve listened to the 12 that were done before I went on holiday last week.  This week Elán is on holiday, so I will be doing lots of listening to catch up with her!  Come hell or high water, we’ll have it finished for 8 August so Elán gets her bonus payment from Audible and you can get listening.

Brittany Book
This has been through a few rounds of editing and is now a complete story.  At the end of June, I decided that I needed to take a break from it.  I felt that it needed more work, but I was burned out on it.  While I’m resting, I have several of my beta-readers looking at it.  In August I will go back to it armed with their feedback.  I suspect it may end up longer than I originally planned – maybe up to 50,000 words by the time I’ve finished.

I had a stroke of good luck and won a free edit from CandleLit Author Services, who are affiliated to Best Chick Lit.  Once I’ve had another go at the book, I will send it to them and I’m sure their feedback will help make it even better.

Still on track to have it out late this year.

Have_Chick_Lit_Blue_Spine_TextHave Chick Lit, Will Travel Box Set
I’ve been putting together a box set of three novels with two other authors.  I’m including After Wimbledon and the other books are She Likes It Tough by Geralyn Corcillo and Mr Right & Other Mongrels by Monique McDonell.  That should be available at the end of July.

Organising a sale at other ebook stores is more complicated, so if you have a different ereader you can get it from Smashwords during the same two days for the same price using coupon code XG77K. I would be very grateful if you would post your reviews at the main sites, though.
