The Dr Pepper Prophecies

The-Dr-Pepper-Prophecies_front25-year-old Mel Parker has a few tiny problems:finalist-shiny-web

• Her job is terrible
• She’s been dumped yet again
• Her ex is now her boss
• Her parents think she’s a loser compared to her perfect younger sister
• All her efforts to improve her life seem doomed to failure
• There just isn’t enough chocolate in the world to make up for the above.

The one good thing in her life has always been her best friend Will, who has seen her through every crisis from lost toys to pregnancy scares. But his girlfriend (who’s prettier, better-dressed, more successful and secretly evil) is determined to replace Mel as the woman in his life and how is Mel supposed to compete?

So what do you do when you’ve pretty much given up on your own life? Help others, of course! After all, what’s the worst that can happen? Well, Mel’s about to find out.

Worse still, her misguided efforts seem to be driving a wedge between her and Will. Can Mel live without her best friend? Or is he the man she loves…?

The Dr Pepper Prophecies is based (loosely) on Jane Austen’s Emma.

Full-length novel (approx. 80,000 words, 300 Kindle pages), with a rating of 12A/PG-13 (sexual references and some mild profanity).
