Oh no, I've Fallen in Love! has been entered into Select again. Last time, sales fell so it's a gamble it won't happen again. But since big A changed the rules with KOLL (Kindle Owners' Lending Library) payments have changed for authors.
It's exciting times.
Full-sized novels are no longer paid the same as short stories as it's paid per page read and that means the reader has the control. They don't like the book and stop reading, and guess what, we don't get paid (or get paid for the amount of pages read).
I think that's fair.
Oh no, I've Fallen in Love! is now completely and uttering free to members of Amazon's Lending library. But a word of caution, this book will make you cry, that I can guarantee.
A story of how love can destroy--and heal.
When she was eight years old, Valerie Anthrope’s world changed forever. Her childhood dissolved in an instant. She had to survive her brother’s death and her subsequent mother’s mental health illness, and later her suicide.
Faced with the new reality of her life, she must find a way to survive the horror that became her childhood and answer the question—how do you get back to normal, when everything normal has gone?
Her answer was to hide her feelings behind a mask of self-sufficiency and hold would-be friends at arm’s length. She tells herself she doesn’t need anyone.
Love was too painful to risk again.
Then why can't she get client Lex Kendal out of her mind? If life has taught her anything, it's that she has to keep looking over her shoulder because sooner or later the curse that destroyed her family would find a way to sabotage any happiness she was to find—and Valerie couldn’t risk that.
Not again. Oh no, I’m Falling in Love! is a book to make you smile, cry but mainly to remind you to hold on tightly to those you love.
Praise for Oh no, I've Fallen in Love!
There are good, funny sparky dialogue, and a nice balance of light and dark throughout. Wise uses dialogue as it should be used; to bring the narrative to life. I especially liked the clever little prologue and the way it was picked up again at the end. Polished and accomplished.
I feel that anyone who has experienced anxiety or depression due to past trauma, or is close to someone who has, will find that this book deals sensitively with the subject.
It illustrates the redeeming power of love.
Despite the serious subject matter, Oh no, I’ve Fallen in Love! is a very funny love story, the humour ranging from light to dark. The author's descriptions of how Ellen bursts into Valerie's `grey' world and adds shades of colour to it are hilarious.
Over all, this is a well written and entertaining story with a clever ending that brings everything together.
It has all the ingredients to make the basis for a comedy-drama series on television. Are you listening Sky TV?
