Reviews:



First time novelist Paul Ekert has crafted a well polished novel here. Centered around network TV journalist Jon Baptist whose career is going down hill fast, he returns to his hometown to cover a local murder and stumbles onto a way to bring his career back to life...if he can survive himself.

If you thought TV anchors were shallow, self-centered personalities, this book will confirm that for you. A fun, sometimes gruesome read that often rings true-to-life. Highly recommended

****

This book is a great read, well paced and the author has a great 'no holds barred' writing style and does not shy away from content which i found to be a change to some authors in this genre.

I was then surprised to hear that this was this authors first novel and all i can say is my hat is off to him and i hope he writes more in the future.

Best book yet!

This is the 3rd book Ive read by Paul Ekert. I have to say its also the best even though I enjoyed them all. This book made me laugh. I didnt want to put it down. I was routing for the main characters. I would recommend reading this book if you like fantasy novels. Its brilliant.

A long way from Leytonstone.

Peter Bracknell doesn't have the most exciting life. In fact, it's pretty boring. This, however, is beginning to seem like a Good Thing when the alternative is finding himself in the sort of world in which fantasy novels are set, with knights, heroes, a princess and even a wizard. Unfortunately, as Peter realises, it's a fantasy novel in which the author doesn't mind killing off major characters - and none is more major than Peter, as everyone wants him to save the world (except for those who want to kill him). Nothing is quite what is seems as this comic romp takes a turn for the darker - and then a turn for the darker still.

This is a self-aware fantasy that plays with that knowledge, but keeps up the narrative pace. I won't spoil it by telling you who's still alive at the end, but I certainly hope to meet them again in a sequel.

Dating by the Book
A Romantic Comedy

Juliet Raphael, Literary Agent to the stars, in possession of weapons grade sarcasm, and a view of men that barely aligns with the Geneva convention, finds herself bereft of a Plus-One for an awards ceremony where she is tipped to win a prestige honour.

With a messy and very public divorce leaving glowing wounds in her pride, and her agency suffering from a lack of clients and cash, Juliet needs that Plus-One in order to silence the brigade of concerned frowns and bounce her Agency back to solvency. Preferably, if at all possible, with a Plus-One who can manage to get through the evening without burping, farting, getting drunk, or mentioning his ex-wife and then bursting into tears about her absence.

Complicating this painful process is Jacque Noir, her sole client and drunken French chef with an aversion to finishing his damn cookery book, Pascal his moody brother who keeps telling everyone that things are going to get really bad, but refuses to go into details, her interfering sister, Tina, whose idea of finding a date is to randomly ask men on the street corner if they would like a good time, and last but no means least, Ron, a travelling salesman with a public nipple rubbing fetish who seems destined never to go away.

Dating under these circumstances, Juliet had begun to realise, was not for the faint hearted, even if it was done - By the Book!
