The Hating Game

So, I realized that I probably left you with the impression yesterday that I am involved in some sort of illicit monkey smuggling ring.

Well.

That’s neither here nor there. Though it is exhausting.

The odd thing is that after telling you my posts would be scattered, here I am posting two days in a row. But for a good cause. Many of you know the super fab Talli Rolland, a writer-bloggie-friend who makes people smile on a daily basis. But just in case you don’t, let me tell you about her.

1. She’s a super fab writer-bloggie-friend. You should check out her super-writer-blog by going here.

2. She is preparing to release a book which promises to be a rockin read called THE HATING GAME. Love that title.


THE HATING GAME by Talli Roland

The Hatign Game - Cover About: When man-eater Mattie Johns agrees to star on a dating game show to save her ailing recruitment business, she's confident she'll sail through to the end without letting down the perma-guard she's perfected from years of her love 'em and leave 'em dating strategy. After all, what can go wrong with dating a few losers and hanging out long enough to pick up a juicy £200,000 prize? Plenty, Mattie discovers, when it's revealed that the contestants are four of her very unhappy exes. Can Mattie confront her past to get the prize money she so desperately needs, or will her exes finally wreak their long-awaited revenge? And what about the ambitious TV producer whose career depends on stopping her from making it to the end?

Such a fun book. Clever twist, yeah? Comedy. Romance. Talli. What’s not to love?

 

3. Talli has a brilliant plan for promoting her exciting debut novel, which I’m thrilled to be a part of today—and not just because I adore Talli. Now, I haven’t read THE HATING GAME, but most of you might know I only promote books I love or am excited about, and I’m stoked about THE HATING GAME . I’m hoping you’ll be excited about it, too. Here’s how you can get in on the fun:

  6. I love the tagging movement that has sprung up on Amazon. It's a great way of giving authors a little bit of a leg up to get them noticed. I'm heading over there right now to give Talli some down under love.

  10. Congrats to Talli!

    But also, Carol, watch your back. You'd better keep your illicit monkey smuggling ring away from my illicit monkey smuggling ring, or there will be consequences. As in, fighting mono a mono. (That's right: monkey-to-monkey. Bring it.)
