DREAM ON - my new novel!
.... is now available on Amazon!
Here's the blurb for the Amazon page, so you can see what it's about:
Dave Bentley was born to be a rock star.
He’s a reincarnated Viking warrior, too….
When Dave forms his new band, Thor, there are plenty of
sleepless nights for Janice, his on-off girlfriend and mother of his son.Not only must she deal with the thrills and
spills of life as a hardworking single mum, but also the imminent return of
singer-songwriter Ariel Swan, Dave’s one true love.
Poor Janice.Dave is
still the love of her life.
Ariel and her friend Melodie (whose ambition is to be ‘a
celebrity’) decide to enter a TV talent competition – so Thor go along, too.This adventure brings about big changes in
the lives of all of them – none of which Dave could have anticipated.
One member of Thor even ends up on The Jeremy Kyle Show…..
It's a bit shorter than my other ones (80K words instead of 90-95K), simply because that was all the story required. It's more humorous, too, what with Dave and his pub band, and Melodie with her 'celebrity' aspirations - oh, and other talent show contestants, and The Jeremy Kyle Show, and....! One of my test readers described it as a 'kitchen sink drama' - there is quite a bit of serious real life/relationship stuff going on as well.
I'm planning a sequel for it, which I will start writing soon. If you've enjoyed my other books I think you will like this one, too - if not, I hope this one will spark your interest!
