Welcome to my Friday Five Challenge
Get yourself a cuppa and give yourself 5 minutes.
In today’s online shopping age, readers often base their buying decisions from small postage stamp size book covers (Thumb-nails), a quick glance at the book description and the review. How much time do they really spend making that buying decision?
AUTHORS – You often only have seconds to get a reader to buy your book, is your book cover and book bio up to it?
My Friday Five Challenge is this….. IN ONLY FIVE MINUTES….
1) Go to any online book supplier,
2) Randomly choose a category,
3) Speed through the book covers, choose one which has instantly appealed to your eye,
4) Read the book Bio/ Description for this book,
5) If there are reviews, check out a couple,
6) Make an instant decision, would you BUY or PASS?
(then write a little analysis about your decision)
Here we go….. this week I chose COMEDY and I found “It Started With a Kiss” by Lindy Dale
THIS IS A NOVELLA LENGTH TITLE
Out for a jog one Saturday afternoon, Georgie Bird is greeted by two things she never expected to see ~ a huge lump of dog doings on the sole of her shoe and her old boyfriend Nate. Nate and Georgie had been the only peas in the pod growing up and in the twelve years since they’ve seen each other, neither of them seems to have forgotten. Over a cup of coffee and a series of shared recollections, Georgie and Nate begin to rekindle the embers of the love they lost.
But can they save the relationship or will their one night of passion bring the closure they never had?
This is one romantic short story you won’t be able to put down!
“‘It Started With a Kiss’ is the latest ROMANTIC COMEDY from Lindy Dale, and everything we’ve come to expect from Aussie’s CHICK LIT QUEEN. You’ll want to clear your calendar, grab a cuppa, and curl up with this little gem, which comes complete with romance, laughter…and a smear of dog pooh!” – Lee Murray.

Would I BUY or PASS….. BUY
Just look at that CUTE cover, who couldn’t resist those angelic looking kids?
So Dog poo… we’ve all stepped in it at one time, it’s not funny when it’s you but on someone else it’s hilarious as they try all sorts of ways to get rid of it, as long as you’re not sharing a car with them!
This book sounds a quick fun read, one you cheer you up on any afternoon. I don’t know this author, but that many reviews and mostly 4 and 5* mean readers like her. A huge bonus is the price, but the book appealed to me anyway.
I like romantic fiction and laughter, so it’s on my kindle as we speak.
