Yes, it’s time once again to plug The Wrong Stuff, my debut novel, a duty I admit I’ve been neglecting of late, due to the fact that life gets in the way sometimes and it just hasn’t been a priority.
I couldn’t even tell you how many copies I’ve sold, because my publisher is considerably less forthcoming than I’d like with such information and I doubt I’ll be staying with them when my contracted year is up.
Having said that, I’ll take quality over quantity at this point and I’m happy to say that all the reviews on Amazon so far have been very good indeed, even from total strangers.
All of which is very encouraging, as is the fact that other writers are still interested enough to ask me about the creation of my accidental novel; bringing me to the latest online interview, posted yesterday by C.J. Rose on her website.
And here, in case you missed it, is the blurb, the links and some of those rave reviews:
The Wrong Stuff, a totally improvised novel, uniquely created from writing prompts with no edits.
“Hannah Meredith has always had a good eye and she’s a veteran bargain hunter, but she isn’t prepared, when she buys the box marked “Stuff” at a mysterious auction, for her world to suddenly unravel into a series of increasingly bizarre and terrifying events.
Soon on the run from a sinister cabal of vengeful corporate villains and their homicidal henchmen, Hannah must foil an evil plan to bring the world to the brink of global economic collapse, all the while keeping one step ahead of her pursuers.
A fast-moving thriller with a sci-fi twist, the plot stretches from chases through grimy backstreets of Victorian London back to the present day, where sudden violence shatters the tranquility of the English countryside.
Following Hannah and her unlikely allies in their frantic attempt to stay alive and save the world from disaster, The Wrong Stuff is exciting and original, with more than a touch of black humour.”
