Today is publication day! My latest novel My So Called (Love) Life is available now!
So, on this celebratory day, I thought I’d share five things I didn’t know about publication days.
1) Other writers are awesome- they support, retweet, congratulate and pretty much treat it like it’s your birthday. Which is damn cool.
2) You are not required to have a big launch party and dress up and eat canapes (but you can do!)
3) Blog tours are a good idea!Even better, if people know and have read the book BEFORE publication day.
4) It is just another day. But you probably should treat yourself anyway.
Surviving on a diet of cynicism and margarita-fuelled ‘Misery Dinners’ with her best friends, she’s become a romance free zone…and that’s the way she likes it. Until an invitation for The Ex’s wedding arrives. Suddenly in need of a plus one, Tig has little choice but to bin the takeaways, ditch the greying underwear collection…and start pretending to view the opposite sex as something other than target practise.
Then, she meets Ollie – ie. the perfect solution. No sex. No strings. Fake boyfriend. The only catch is that she has to pretend to be his girlfriend for three whole months.
Dating without the heartbreak: the best idea Tig’s ever had, right? Wrong!
