Book of the week + Giveaway: The Hating Game by Talli Roland

There's nothing like making a new writer friend.

I met Talli online after she posted a review of my novel on Goodreads. I've since found out that she is a fellow Canadian ( who resides in London) and a talented writer. Her first novel, The Hating Game, recently hit the Kindle bestseller list at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.
The paperback edition will be out next March.

Here's the synopsis: When man-eater Mattie Johns agrees to star on a dating game show to save her 
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 £2000,000 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? It sounds such fun, right?

Talli is generously offering two copies of her e-book as a giveaway. To win, become a follower of my blog, simply drop by her lovely blog, and leave me a comment here about why you'd love to win her book. 

No Kindle? Download a free app at Amazon for Mac, iPhone, PC, Android and more!

Thanks Talli! Winners will be announced next Tuesday.

Bonne chance!
