Love, Sex and Tesco's Finest Cava?

Is not really a question but a new ebook on amazon kindle.

It's about relationships, sex, Internet dating and takes a male's thirtysomething perspective on these.

It hasn't sold a single copy, as yet.

It's been comapred to Nick Hornby (but no by him

cheers

My novel has been described as lad-lit and chick-lit by different readers!!!

go figure; and please have a look at the website to see what you think--

it's tone is very much like the book--and not to be taken too seriously

Thanks

Happy to tell you that I bought this novel on Amazon - left you a review too. It's a very well written book with hilarious dialogue. The narrative flows like a dream and before I knew where I was I'd finished it in two days. Well done and looking forward to the next one

Wow two days to read

It took me two years to write and two full edits by professionals.

Thnaks for your support and review

my friend says confidence comes from the reader --

anyone else wanting to make a quick dip to see if it's for them try the first link below; I'll let the writing speak for itself

Cheers

It's Amazon only and not available for other readers. So, please boycott this book. Exclusivity is a bane for eBooks. Please never buy an exclusive eBook from anyone.

So if this eBooks is going to stay exclusive to Amazon UK and in AZW only, let's just ignore it.

Asking people to boycott my book is little short of disgraceful behaviour So if this eBooks is going to stay exclusive to Amazon UK and in AZW only, let's just ignore it.
Asking people to boycott my book is little short of disgraceful behaviour when you have no background to make your petty judgements on.

I've had it on Smashwords and all other sites--Apple UK reduced it without my consent so Amazon then did as well--you seem to want to authors to live in some little perfect world.

if you want to get at Amazon that's up to you but picking on the little indie author makes you look nothing but a cyber bully.

As for Boycotts--How will I notice? lol
