September 2015 Debut of the Month and eBook of the Month.
An amusing, wicked taste of the television world sits gleefully alongside a teasing romantic story in ‘How to Get Ahead in Television’. With the often calamitous events that befall Poppy, there is just a whisper of the ‘Bridget Jones’ effect at work. Sophie Cousens is a Television Producer and winner of the Love at First Write competition, her inside knowledge makes it feel as though you are eavesdropping on some delightfully naughty insider gossip. Poppy is an engaging lead character, it’s easy to giggle alongside her, encourage her to believe in herself and occasionally raise an eyebrow in disbelief as she muddles through her life. This is a refreshing, entertaining read, full of lighthearted fun with a rather dishy side of romance. ~ Liz Robinson
‘A fast-paced, laugh-out-loud, romp through an embarrassingly accurate tale of telly folk’ Graham Norton.
