Breaking News! “7 Years Bad Sex” embarks on a brand new adventure…

Do you know that moment when you’ve got really good news~the best, in fact~and you’ve got to keep quiet until you feel you’re going to explode? Well, that’s been me these past few weeks. But now I’m allowed to shout it from the rooftops, and there’s no holding back any longer.

Are you ready?
This is monumental! (At least to me.)

Without preamble and further ado, I am simply thrilled to announce that
Choc LiT has signed 7 Years Bad Sex!

Woohooo!

To say I’m over the moon would be the understatement of the decade. It’s always a fantastic moment when you can push your career into new directions, and as those moments go, this one takes top position. I’ve had the warmest, most enthusiastic welcome from the Choc Lit family of authors, and I cannot wait to see what develops next. For now, though, I’m in party mode. *Cheers*

What’s the story?

7Years_NewTeaser1 One wedding. One curse? Disaster ever after…

A seven-years-bad-sex curse? Surely not! Yet something went wrong when rock singer Casey and drummer Alex got married on that beautiful yacht anchored off St Tropez in the south of France. Something went badly wrong. For even on their wedding night, the young couple discovers a complete and somewhat surprising inability to make love. Muddling through their honeymoon with a string of thin excuses for their predicament, the lovers defer finding a solution (and panicking) until the return to their home in London. After all, they married for life and to make rock music, not for the love of sex. Right?

But when they resume life as normal in London, all hell breaks loose. Increasingly frantic in their quest for release, the unhappy newlyweds embark on a string of hilarious and occasionally harmful antics that drives them, their band, and an assortment of random strangers to the brink of despair. But it ain’t over ‘til it’s over or, in this case… it ain’t over ‘til the newlyweds sing.

Here’s what some advance readers thought of 7 Years Bad Sex

7 Years Bad Sex is a witty, intelligent, and hilariously funny romantic comedy that aims to please… Or not, as the case may be. A must read!’ Kelly at Perusing Princesses

7 Years Bad Sex is going to be one of those books that everyone is talking about. A fantastic story, engaging plot, and totally wonderful main characters to fall in love with.’ JB Johnston at Brook Cottage Books

‘Fun and romantic, with a touch of rock and roll, 7 Years Bad Sex is a light-hearted look at what happens to one newlywed couple when they are unable to consummate their marriage—I couldn’t put it down!’ Jonita Fex at The Book Chick

‘A fantastic refreshing change, but who would have thought characters not having sex would stress me out so much? Absolutely hilarious too. Loved it!’ Rachel Miles at Love Between the Sheets

 Obviously I’m biased, but I think 7 Years Bad Sex is your Must-Read this summer! Here are those buy links again:

In the name of research…

This story sees Casey and Alex try out all manner of unusual, wonderful and occasional weird strategies to re-ignite their sex life. Natural aphrodisiacs feature on the agenda fairly early on when Alex inadvertently talks his way into getting a free serving of fresh oysters in a fancy restaurants The results… you can find those in your very own copy of 7 Years Bad Sex.

However. I wrote this part of the story with absolutely no knowledge of what oysters would look like, feel like, and **gulps** taste like. Therefore, on a recent family visit to France, I bit the bullet and did some research after the fact… More about that soon, but here’s my initial reaction.

WP_20150405_036

And the verdict? I put my words in Casey’s mouth, no pun intended. Let’s just say… it wasn’t all bad. LOL! I’ll tell you the full story about my oyster tasting next week.

Thank you, as always, and…

…happy reading! I guarantee you one thing apart from many a laugh and breathless moment whilst reading this romantic comedy. When you’ve finished reading, you’ll never toast anyone ever again without making eye contact! Or would you risk it? 🙂 😉

Good old fashioned lover boy…

 Welcome to Music Monday!NewMusicMondayLogo

This is the special “playlist for 7 Years Bad Sex” series! Today I’m bringing you the mighty REO Speedwagon with a timeless and very appropriate classic:


 

From 7 Years Bad Sex:
‘We married for life and to make music, not for the love of sex, right?’ Alex had flippantly summed up the situation, and now they were both holding onto that thought.

Famous last words. It doesn’t quite work out like that for Casey and Alex… but all’s well that hopefully ends well, right?

See you next Monday for the second song on the 7 Years Bad Sex playlist…

I want your sex.

 Welcome to Music Monday!NewMusicMondayLogo

This is the special “playlist for 7 Years Bad Sex” series, and this song speaks entirely for itself.


 

“Casey’s heart rate notched up again, and a warm fuzzy feeling stirred in her stomach. Mmmh, sex with her husband. She couldn’t wait.”

Oh. But whatever happens next?
You know it won’t be what Casey’s expecting.

See you next Monday for the second song on the 7 Years Bad Sex playlist…

It’s a hard life. #MusicMonday

 Welcome to Music Monday!NewMusicMondayLogo

This is the special “playlist for 7 Years Bad Sex” series. Today is a royal instalment, and it’s an epic choice!

Just imagine. Casey and Alex are on their honeymoon. Newly married. Excited. Loved up. Except… the romance doesn’t work out. Not at all. It’s a hard life, right, to be two people together? This song totally captures the emotions of my two leading characters towards the middle and end of the plot.

Plus consider this nugget from the blurb:

After all, they married for life and to make rock music, not for the love of sex. Right?

See. Perfect song choice. I hope you’re intrigued!

Love in an elevator…

 Welcome back to Music Monday!NewMusicMondayLogo

This is the special “playlist for 7 Years Bad Sex” series. I’m kicking off with the mighty Aerosmith: are you ready?

There is indeed an elevator~or rather, a lift, as I’m writing in British English~with special significance in 7 Years Bad Sex, although outright romance is not committed in it. At least not right in it.

All at once, the lift shuddered and stalled, and the lights went out.
‘Oops,’ Alex yelped even though he was mid-song.

So. A stalled lift. Whatever happens next?

See you next Monday for the second song on the 7 Years Bad Sex playlist…

I always keep my promises.

Hello my friends! I’m back!

Oh, how I’ve missed you all! Thank you for bearing with me during my radio silence since early January. But indeed I’ve kept my promise: I’m back. And I’ve written you a new book!

Ta-da! Very proud of my latest masterpiece. Novel #7 -- 7 Years Bad Sex!

Ta-da! Very proud of my latest masterpiece. Novel #7 — 7 Years Bad Sex!

It’s a romantic comedy, and here’s another promise: it’s unlike anything you’ve ever read before. Check out the blurb:

7 Years Bad Sex

One wedding. One curse?  Disaster ever after…

7Years_Cover_TeaserA seven-years-bad-sex curse? Surely not! Yet something went wrong when rock singer Casey and drummer Alex got married on that beautiful yacht anchored off St Tropez in the south of France. Something went badly wrong. For even on their wedding night, the young couple discovers a complete and somewhat surprising inability to make love. Muddling through their honeymoon with a string of thin excuses for their predicament, the lovers defer finding a solution (and panicking) until the return to their home in London. After all, they married for life and to make rock music, not for the love of sex. Right?

But when they resume life as normal in London, all hell breaks loose. Increasingly frantic in their quest for release, the unhappy newlyweds embark on a string of hilarious and occasionally harmful antics that drives them, their band, and an assortment of random strangers to the brink of despair. But it ain’t over ‘til it’s over or, in this case… it ain’t over ‘til the newlyweds sing.

Want some more? Okay, here goes…

There was a stunned silence in the room while Alex and Casey tried to assimilate the importance of this statement. Casey was hot and cold all over. She remembered all too well her conversation with Alex on the yacht after they had trawled through the wedding video. He had pointed out to her even then that she hadn’t looked at him.

Casey shivered. She caught Alex’s eye and saw nothing but utter confusion. ‘I told you,’ he seemed to mouth at her, but he was shrugging at the same time as though to say, ‘I haven’t got a clue what that means.’ Seconds ticked by slowly. Liza was still standing up, one fist raised in an air punch. Sasha had taken one of Casey’s hands as though she needed comforting.

Eventually Alex spoke. ‘Maybe we didn’t look at each other. So what?’

Liza and Sasha shared another look. ‘The Seven Years Bad Sex Curse!’ they shouted as one.

Alex burst out laughing. ‘The Seven Years Bad Sex Curse?’ he repeated. ‘You’re taking the mickey, right?’

Myles was chuckling so hard, he toppled over sideways on the sofa and had to hold his stomach. ‘That’s why we had to rush over here? To tell them about a Seven Years Bad Sex Curse?’

‘Laugh all you want,’ Liza said calmly. ‘But you’re watching it in action.’

Casey swallowed hard. She didn’t believe in curses. They were nothing but delusory superstitions from the middle ages. But still, both Sasha and Liza looked utterly serious.

‘So—so what does that curse entail?’ Casey asked, her voice almost a whisper.

Sasha produced her smartphone and called up a website. ‘It says here,’ she says, ‘that’s there’s a superstition in many parts of southern Europe about how not looking at each other when clinking glasses during a toast brings couples seven years bad sex.’ She angled her phone so that everyone could see the screen.

‘And you were in France when you committed this ritualistic mishap,’ Liza offered helpfully. ‘So that definitely applies.’

Save the date…

More promises to keep!

When I left for my social media blackout to focus on writing my next masterpiece, I promised I’d be back with a bang. Well, just in case a finished book due to hit the market in less than two months isn’t enough of a bang, I’ve also thought up a double celebration strategy. Are you ready?

Celebrating bloggers…
