We’re so excited! We perhaps should have launched this at the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival last week, but let’s face it, Sarah Alderson and I were too busy
swigging cocktails and getting drunk reaching out to other authors and readers to worry about that.
So here we are, announcing our new comedy romance a la Internet – The Extraordinary Life of Lara Craft (not Croft). Whoo hoo! (The blurb is below). The blog tour starts November 10th with the fabulous Xpresso Book Tours and we’re looking for some of our lovely blogger friends to help host. You’ll get a free copy of what some have called ‘the funniest book I’ve ever read!’ (seriously – some people are too kind/need to read more) as well as all our love and possibly some emojis of gratitude on Twitter, like this: 🙂 😉 🙂
We wrote this book a couple of years ago, back and forth, with both Sarah and I writing till we ran out of words and then passing it over. We’ve never laughed so much in our lives…and it’s a little different from everything we’ve written before – mainly because it’s waaaaay more British. Back then we were so busy on other projects that we didn’t have much time to tell anyone about it. So we’re sending Lara back out there with a snazzy new cover and brand new wings under it. Let make sure it FLIES!
From bestselling authors Becky Wicks (Before He Was Famous, Before He Was Gone) and Sarah Alderson (Hunting Lila, Fated, Come Back to Me) comes a new romance with a difference…
After losing her job and her boyfriend on the same day, Lara’s beginning to wonder if her life can possibly get any worse. Then along comes Jamie, a childhood friend, offering her a job delivering mysterious packages to random destinations around the world and suddenly things are looking up.
Lara packs her bags and sets off on an epic adventure, meeting billionaire Arabic Princes, rugged cowboys, a sparkling wannabe vampire, a love guru with sex on the brain and Angelina Jolie’s bodyguards along the way. But though trouble always seems to find Lara, it seems love is rather more elusive.
Pack your bags. The adventure’s about to begin!
