Bad Romance will be published on Thursday 8th February
Dearest Bad Romancers,
Hopefully you have all received your books by now - thank you so much, once again, for pledging to make this happen, I really hope you're enjoying the read...
If you are then (pretty) please:
(a) TELL EVERYONE YOU HAVE EVER MET
(b) ALSO ANY YOU HAVEN'T
(c) BEGIN EVERY CONVERSATION THUS:
'HAVE YOU READ BAD ROMANCE? OH YOU HAVEN'T. WELL YOU MUST. SHALL I STEER YOU INTO A BOOKSHOP RIGHT NOW? YES? EXCELLENT. YOU WILL LOVE IT. AND LIKE ALL THE VERY BEST INDIVIDUALS FROM NOW ON YOU MUST BEGIN ALL CONVERSATIONS THUS:
"HAVE YOU READ BAD ROMANCE...?"'
(ETC. ETC. ETC.)
PLEASE TWEET, FACEBOOK & INSTAGRAM THE HELL OUT OF IT. STOP AT NOTHING UNTIL YOU BORE YOUR NEAREST & DEAREST INTO SUBMISSION (AKA SOARING SALES FIGURES.)
Until next Thursday, Bad Romance is available for pre-order on Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bad-Romance-Emily-Hill/dp/1783524960
As of next Thursday, it should be in your local bookshop... (so if it isn't please look tremendously concerned and wonder very loudly what on earth could have gone wrong... 'But sales of short stories are BOOMING,' tell them... https://www.thebookseller.com/news/short-story-collections-surge-half-value-and-third-volume-2017-709376)
If you have any genius ideas as to articles I should write or people I should contact, plus any wizard wheezes regarding reading groups or book talks do please actively conspire / email your thoughts to me at firstname.lastname@example.org...
If you know anyone particularly addicted to leopard print, do please direct them to your special edition which will match their outfit and share the attached video very kindly and brilliantly put together by my beloved cousins Elsie and Lily Temple (featuring cameo appearance by Blakeney Players' legend, my infamous Auntie Jane...)
SOME DATES FOR YOUR DIARY:
This Thursday, Rip Her To Shreds will appear in Popshot magazine...
Next Wednesday, on Bad Romance Eve, (7th February) I will be talking about how to write about sex with Rowan Pelling and Monique Roffey at the Betsey Trotwood in Farringdon. Tickets are on sale here & it will become a Boundless podcast which is very exciting.
On Galentine's Day, (a day to celebrate the magnificence of one's gal-friends aka 13th February) I will be selling books in Battersea at a very fancy event. If you know anyone who hasn't got a copy of the book but would like to peruse one in the middle of a party please alert them and if you would like to come along for a free drink and to admire your name in the back of every copy please do email me at email@example.com and I will send you all the details.
On Valentine's Day, Bad Romance will be the subject of Emma Gannon's infamous and brilliant Ctrl Alt Delete podcast: https://www.acast.com/ctrlaltdelete
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN.
(I shall harass you again on Valentine's Day.)
Lots of love,
