New Release: THE TRUTH ABOUT ELLEN by Sarah Louise Smith

With the weather finally getting warmer (well, I have the heat back on today, but I have hope for tomorrow), beach reads are here! What's better than a novel with a pop star love triangle? I'm happy to have Sarah Louise Smith and her latest novel, THE TRUTH ABOUT ELLEN, on the blog. Welcome back, Sarah!

Thank you so much to Samantha for hosting me on her blog today. It’s lovely to be here! And thank you for reading this – big waves from a sunny England. If you’ve never heard of me before, I’m Sarah Louise Smith and I’m the author of four chick-lit novels. My new book The Truth About Ellen has just been released, here’s a bit about it –


It’s every girl’s dream to date a pop star...

When Ellen starts dating Tom, a member of the band she adored as a teenager, she can’t believe how lucky she is.

She neglects to mention that she's a huge fan because that just wouldn’t be cool, would it?

Ellen also keeps quiet about how she once spent an evening with Tom’s ex-bandmate/ex-best friend Jasper, her long-term celebrity crush. Tom doesn’t need to know about that, it’s all in the past.

That is until Tom and Jasper get back in touch… and the truth threatens to ruin everything Ellen has ever dreamed of...

Sound like something you might enjoy? Check out the links below. Thanks so much for reading! :)


The Truth About Ellen is available to buy from:

New Release: FRENCH FRY by Glynis Astie

I met Glynis one random day on Twitter. 140 characters and we instantly connected. When Francine LaSala, Meredith Schorr, and I were planning BookBuzz in NYC last year, we knew Glynis had to be a part of it. Fast forward one year, and we've bonded over similar senses of humor and the daily debacles that occur when you have two young kids. It is such a pleasure to announce the release of Glynis's third novel, FRENCH FRY!

French Fry

Sydney Durand had finally achieved the perfect life she had always wanted. After a whirlwind romance with a charming Frenchman, she endured the three weddings it required to satisfy the members of the newly formed Bennett-Durand clan. All she had left to do was stroll into the sunset with Louis to enjoy their long-awaited happily ever after.
But everything changed when the stick turned blue. Suddenly, Sydney finds herself facing the daunting task of becoming a mother before she has even returned home from her honeymoon. Keeping a tenacious hold on her hard-won happiness, Sydney is determined not to give up without a fight – no matter what or who is thrown in her path…and that includes an overbearing mother-in-law, a know-it-all father and her own anxiety about having a baby.
Will she finally be able to tame her neuroses for the sake of her unborn child? Or will her hormone-induced panic cause a meltdown of epic proportions? One thing is clear: Sydney and Louis’ nerves are going to fry…
About the Author
 Glynis never expected in her wildest dreams to be a writer. After thirteen years in the Human Resources Industry, she decided to stay at home with her two amazing sons. Ever in search of a project, she was inspired to write the story of how she met and married her wonderfully romantic French husband, Sebastien, in six short months. The end result became her first novel, French Twist. As this was just the beginning of their epic love story, Glynis continued to chronicle their adventures in the sequel, French Toast and the final installment in the series, French Fry.
When Glynis is not writing, she is trying to keep the peace amongst the three men and two cats in her life, finding missing body parts (Lego pieces are small!), supervising a myriad of homework assignments and keeping a tenuous hold on her sanity by consuming whatever chocolate is in the vicinity.
