Wattpad has my Book!

What's this I hear you say, my book is on Wattpad, check it out!

New review & new website where you can check out my book!

Placing my book on this website 12 hours ago I have received two reviews:

a) You are an excellent writer and your memoir is captivating. You write of your loss of financial support and the consequential turn of events as if it were a novel with a great plot moving at a nice, brisk pace. The only problem was that you stopped uploading your chapters too I was so enthralled with you story that I was eager to see where the association with Rosa and Peter was leading, but will have to wait until you upload more chapters.

You seem to spend a lot of time in pubs drinking and womanizing but that only made your story more interesting. Even your real estate job in London was lost because of the drunk driving charge and then after a night in jail, you decided to take a trip to Spain where you spent most of your time in bars. Of course the part time job with Kelvin and Anthony was a real boost for you until Anja, Kelvin's girlfriend, flirts with you and makes Kelvin jealous -thus ending your job. Anthony seemed to be a strange lad - I wonder what his story was?

After losing your part time job with Kelvin, you again spent a lot of time in bars until you met Rosa and Peter, the very odd couple. I've got a suspicion that they are the beginning of some real trouble for you especially after spending the night with Rosa, but again I'll have to wait to find out.

Your imagery is lovely and your dialogue is very natural and authentic. I love a character-driven story and this story is filled with fascinating characters, especially Dave. I will be eager to read more once this is published and give you my very best wishes for publication and soon. Intriguing, well-written book. You have a lot of talent at writing.

b) An interesting and dramatic start and in the process, very well-written. Watch listed and starred.

Book sales and a film, maybe?

After I replied to a comment about book sales and gave my story, I received a reply on Amazon KDP Forum:

Congratulations, Dave! This is absolutely fantastic. Not many indie's sell like that! I have a gut feeling - I see a film coming.

I am so happy for you.

Now that would be nice!

Another 5 star review on Amazon!

Like many reviewers I started to read this not expecting much for my 77 pence. How wrong I was, from the first page the story gripped and did not let up until the last. One of the most original books I have read in a long time, made more so by the fact that the author has no previous experience of writing prior to this. The style therefore is one that reminded me of an extended piece of writing that would be done in an English lesson at school under the heading 'An exciting Tale!' and is all the more enthralling because of this. The story charts the demise of Dave, who manages a portfolio of high end properties in Central London and lives the stereotypical yuppie lifestyle. All this disappears in one mad drunken moment which results in him losing his job and fleeing to Spain where he encounters a rollercoster lifestyle of drugs, drink, women and non stop partying. Dave's life comes crashing down one night when, on leaving a party, he encounters a horrific hotel fire which, as a result, turns his life upside down.
Genuinely suspenseful, with more twists and turns than a corkscrew, 'Wrong Place,Wrong Time' lives up to it's name. Easy to read, hard to put down, I devoured it in one sitting. One of the books that, for me anyway, will stay with me for some time....heartily recommended.
