The Lonely Heart Attack Club - my new book.

13 posts in this topic

Forum friends - I've just published book number four and hoped you would help me spread the word.  It's a romantic comedy set in the Isle of Man.

When Helen walked out on Jack, she left him with three things: 

1. The lease on a decrepit flat that fortunately only had a couple of months to run. 
2. The lease on a failing coffee shop - that had ‘always been her dream’.
3. Horace the cat. 

The client base on the once thriving shop was now threadbare. 

The salvation for Jack - and the shop - could be right in front of his very eyes; the beautiful and underappreciated shop assistant and friend, Emma. Her insistence that Jack cared about someone – other than himself – would bring him closer to those who were keeping his business alive; his elderly customers. 

A disgraced, ex-BBC presenter and a world record attempt would also be a key ingredient in the success of the Isle of Man’s only dating and social club for the elderly – The Lonely Heart Attack Club.

It was a good comment and I thought it was rather funny and apt. I'll read the book to see if there are any more possible allegories.

I don't see what's harsh about it. 

Maybe it was harsh, maybe it wasn't. But it wasn't a comment that added to the subject matter and the person concerned can be a bit touchy about my comments, so if dilligaf and paswt thought it was harsh maybe he would to. So it wasn't a comment that I especially wanted to get drawn into a long conversation defending so I deleted.

I only said a "bit" harsh, not "bang out of order":D

Oh, I hadn't seen your contribution. The dumb, pointless privilege that subscribers get of ability to delete with no record left often leads to confusion such as mine in this thread.

I thought it was quite funny. Not in a cruel way. More like gentle banter. I would have laughed if I was  the person concerned. I would hope he would too

Agreed, I chuckled too, not in a mean way. Can I just say, in case he wants royalties, any similarities to persons living or... you know the rest.

If I sign up for kindle unlimited and read your book on the 30 day free trial do you still get the same amount as if I bought your book outright? Sounds a bit tight I know, and probably would end up costing me thousands of pounds by the time I got round to remembering to cancel the account, rather like the netflix one that I haven't used or cancelled in 5 years, but in that momen it would be nice to feel good about doing good while someone else was paying.

Morning.  On KU the author gets paid per page read rather than a total amount. The amount differs each month.  If you like reading, KU is a great option.
