At last! It’s here! It’s finished! My latest book is now occupying the digital shelves of an online shop somewhere near you. And by jove, would it be thrilled to have your mouse pointer tickling under its nose.
All those months of head scratching, typing, formatting, the endless rounds of editing and begging people to help me with the proof reading… I’m sick of the sight of the damned thing. But it’s finished! WOWZERS.
And I’ll be starting a new one soon…
This particular story is centred around a teenage boy called Jake, and it’s all about the teenage insecurities that are bouncing around his head as he battles from one day to the next. There’s drama, there’s jealousy, there’s shouting, there’s tragedy, there’s… well, you’ll just have to see for yourself.
I’d like to thank OCD Reader, Weichu, and Louise Savage for their gracious help during the editing stages. Their delicate beady eyes spotted what my tired puffy ones could not.
If you’re willing to write a short review of the book on somewhere like Amazon, Facebook, Goodreads, or your blog then you can grab yourself a free copy from Smashwords using this code - JU97J
Jealousy, lust, and teenage insecurities are the lifeblood of any large school.
Loneliness can strike without warning, spreading through the cramped corridors like an epidemic.
Out on the playground, rivalries are formed from the pettiest of incidents.
Some people look at Jake in awe, others look at him with hatred.
Jake is just an ordinary boy who wants to be liked.
Jake wants to know why the girls never seem to notice him.
Jake is… well, he’s Jake.

Phew! After what seems like an eternity, my latest book is finally published! Yes! This is actually my very first novel, but the fifth book overall that I have written. The synposis is thus:
Look at the person sitting just across from you. It doesn’t matter whether they’re a loved one, a friend, or a complete stranger.
Now look at their face. Are they happy? Are they sad? Or are they angry? Can you even tell?
How well do you actually know the people closest to you?
Have you ever seen the real person that lies just underneath what you see…?
Thriller fans will be utterly thrilled, as it is a thriller story. If you are already a follower of this blog, then you get a free copy ‘cos you are special. If you are a reviewer of some kind, please help yourself to a free copy and do a giveaway of 10 copies if you so wish. Lastly, but most importantly, if you work for the British NHS (nurses, doctors, surgeons, support staff, etc.), you are also entitled to a free copy. Although I believe in the spirit of the NHS, the current UK government seems to be doing its level best to destroy it, so this is my way of trying to give something back and showing some support. Use the coupon code below to download the book, and feel free to share it around.
Thanks are owed to the lovely Chez Sasha for stuff about French people, and also to country girl Julie Rainey, comma chameleon Terry Tyler, book mentalist OCD Reader, Malibu advocate Melanie Cusick-Jones, and the blogless John Taylor for their immense help during the tortuous proof-reading stage.
Thanks also to the moderators of various groups over on Goodreads.
