Evening all! Since my book, The Twenty Seven Club, published last week, I’m really keen to hear what people think about it, who’s interested in reading and, basically, seeing if I can generate some buzz around it! It’s fun – but also a hard slog publishing independently – so every little bit of online support helps! So, I’ve included some blurb about it below to see what you think, and, if it’s up your street, you’ll also find links to Goodreads to add it to your bookshelf/leave a review, Amazon to buy/review and a range of indy book shops too!
It’s 1994. The music industry is mourning Kurt Cobain, Right Said Fred have re-emerged as an ‘ironic’ pop act and John Major is the country’s prime minister. Nothing is as it should be.
Emma, a working-class rock music fan from Hull, with a penchant for a flaming Drambuie and a line of coke with her best mate Dave down The Angel, is troubled.
Trev, her beloved whippet, has doggy IBS, and her job ordering bathroom supplies at the local caravan company is far from challenging. So when her dad, Tel, informs her that Kurt Cobain has killed himself aged 27, Emma is consumed with anxiety.
Janis Joplin, Brian Jones, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix…why have so many rock musicians died aged 27? And will Emma be next to join The Twenty Seven Club?
The Twenty Seven Club is a nostalgic, often humorous, drug and booze-infused tale of friendship, discovery and anxiety as Emma tries, for once, to focus on life, rather than death.
So, if it sounds like your cup of tea, it would be FANTASTIC if you might:
