Get Wasted

"Where Danger, Passion and Chance Collide ..."
I received a copy of Nicola Morgan's Wasted today, which I won just recently in one of the competitions on her Talk About Wasted blog. I haven't delved into the book much yet, but a quick dip has me hooked already. Thanks Nicola! This more than makes up for the bitter disappointment of the Hallowe'en chocolates I won in one of her flash fiction competitions getting lost in the post ...

There's a good chance you're familiar with Nicola's legendary Help! I Need a Publisher blog already. If not, I can't recommend it highly enough. The Talk About Wasted blog is wonderful too, but in a different way : it's a bloody fantastic piece of marketing/platform building/reader involvement. An object-lesson in how to go about building up a buzz for a new book. The amount of work that has gone into it is just staggering.

One day I hope to be in the same position myself. When I am I'll be sure to refer to Nicola's blog as a shining example of how it should be done ...


  1. You're so right about the marketing - it's been beautifully done.

    I was sent a copy of Wasted but I got it out of the library first. It's a very nifty book!

  2. fairyhedgehog,
    I'm taking it on holiday to read!

  3. I've got my copy. I think I'll read it next.

    Have a great time in magical Man.


I'd love to know what you think.
