Just when you thought it was over..

Fifteen months have passed since e-luv came out and it's now vanished from the shops and languishing in the lower 200,000s on Amazon.
But something strange has been happening for the past few months - I seem to be seeing more reviews and getting more emails about it than I did when it was on the shelves.

Word of mouth - notoriously slow but it can only happen once you have a gen-u-ine published book. And weirdly, it does seem to go in flurries so maybe karma gets a look in too ...

And I'm just about to add to it! I'll be posting my review some time this afternoon / this evening (on Bookarazzi as well as my blog).

In my case it's pure chance. I had a massive pile of BWBD books to be read, have been gradually working my way through them and came to yours - which I confess had got lost at a bottom of a pile and I forgot I had it - this week.

I absolutely loved it. Consumed it in one sitting, found it funny, warm, insightful, very clever. And loved the ending.

I have noticed that publishers have now started to send newly released books out to blogers(I have had three given to me)as part of a marketing ploy
