BEST SELLER ~ it's live!

My new novella, BEST SELLER is now available on Amazon (click title for link).  It's 40k words long, a quirky little tale about three writers trying to succeed in the modern publishing industry ~ by fair means or foul....  

Best Seller is only 99p/99c, and is also available on Kindle Unlimited.  Enjoy!

13 Reviews in the first 13 days:

"It’s a terrific plot which is immediately engaging, the writing accomplished and expressive. The author has a flair for defining complex characters realistically with believable dialogue and qualities"

 "Terry Tyler has an exquisite talent for creating fully rounded characters 
who leap off the page and become a part of your life."

"...a tale of three writers whose lives are woven together 
in a full and engaging plot that throws up surprises 
right to the end."

 "One of the most outstanding features of any of Terry Tyler’s books is her ability to create rounded characters that come alive the first time they open their mouths"


"...overall, this book is absolutely brilliant. 
If you have any interest in authors, writing and books
this book is for you!"


"With fascinating insights into the world of contemporary publishing, 
the novella is hugely entertaining but it has a darker side too 
and poses some serious moral dilemmas"


"This book should also be required reading for all those 
who think they have a story in them. 
It is a masterclass in the ups and downs of writing in the hope of publication."



Three women, one dream: to become a successful author.  

Eden Taylor has made it—big time. A twenty-three year old with model girl looks and a book deal with a major publisher, she's outselling the established names in her field and is fast becoming the darling of the media.   

Becky Hunter has money problems. Can she earn enough from her light-hearted romance novels to counteract boyfriend Alex's extravagant spending habits, before their rocky world collapses? 

Hard up factory worker Jan Chilver sees writing as an escape from her troubled, lonely life. She is offered a lifeline—but fails to read the small print... 

In the competitive world of publishing, success can be merely a matter of who you know—and how ruthless you are prepared to be to get to the top.   

BEST SELLER is a novella of 40k words (roughly half as long as an average length novel), a slightly dark, slightly edgy drama with a twist or three in the tale.

    1. Thank you - hard to write, though... it's the learning to contain as you find it getting longer and longer...! x

  4. Halfway through it - it's brilliant! he difficulty in a novella is always paring the words down so each sentence takes on an image of it's own; much like poetry. Think you've succeeded, Terry, really enjoying the read. :) Jx
