Not toooo long now until my first novel comes out!
THE LAST ROMEO (lesson 1 in being an author is that you have to only ever write your book title in CAPS – I have no idea why) is being published by Little, Brown and I am HELLA excited. Like, seriously.
The book is out on ebook in the UK, and paperback in Australia, on 1 February 2018 and the paperback version follows in the UK on 31 May. You can preorder the UK editions on Amazon at thelastromeo.co.uk but it’s also available elsewhere, like Waterstones or Book Depository and all that kind of thing.
Here is the cover in huuuuuge close-up:
This is a huge thing for me for about a million different reasons – my emotional level is about equal to Alexandra Burke’s seconds after she won The X Factor – and I can’t wait for you to read it. While we’re all hanging around doing nothing, here’s the synopsis:
“James is 34 and fed up. His six-year relationship with Adam has imploded, he hates his job making up celebrity gossip, and his best friend Bella has just announced she’s moving to Russia.
Adrift and single in loved-up London, James needs to break out of his lonely, drunken comfort zone. Encouraged by Bella, he throws himself headlong into online dating, blogging each encounter anonymously as the mysterious Romeo.
After meeting a succession of hot/weird/gross men, James has fans and the validation he’s always craved. But when his wild night with a closeted Olympian goes viral and sends his Twitter-fame through the roof, James realises maybe, in the search for happy-ever-after, some things are better left un-shared. Seriously, wherefore art thou Romeo…”
