A to C
Phew. It’s been an amazing two months since The Adventures of Katie Button was released through Crooked Cat Publishing. Two months of fab reviews and comments.
I thought I’d share a few titbits about Katie Button and her world by doing an A-Z, after getting the idea from Laura Huntly, author of Black Eyed Boy, also released through Crooked Cat.
So here goes . . . at least the beginning is easy . . . not looking forward to X! Hopefully something will crop up.A
In Three words: Confident. Honest. Loyal.
Katie’s best friend and work colleague. Alana affectionately calls Katie ‘Sweets’ and supplies the morning coffees and pastries. She dresses for the job she wants and is not afraid to go for it. Although not a major character, without Alana in the background, being there with a cheeky mojito, Katie’s life would be in danger of imploding spectacularly.
Boots & Brownies
I couldn’t choose! Both are an important part of Katie’s life.
Katie is a shoeaholic and a pair of purple suede boots are her latest buy and favourite pair. Buying them wasn’t easy. The results in wearing them were unexpected too.
The most deliciously moist, fudgy, chewy brownies Katie has ever tasted. Homemade by Peter, a guy she meets after experiencing some rather emotional dreams. A brownie or two or five always make the situation better.
This list seems to be food related. Chocolate is very important to a girl and Katie is no exception. Not only does she love chocolate, she ends up working with it in her role at Red Communications, a branding company. She can often be found chomping her way through bars of Galaxy or Cadbury as she sits at her desk. Table picnics are a common occurrence for Katie.
And that's it for now. Hope that's whetted your appetite for The Adventures of Katie Button, a quirky little chicklit.
What happens when your dreams collide with reality?
Katie Button doesn’t believe in soulmates. When charismatic Jack Masterson asks her out on a date, despite him being her new boss alongside his more aloof brother, James, she agrees.
But her romantic dreams about a dashing highwayman, heroic gladiator and Tudor lord are becoming more frequent. And, worryingly, they feel real. She remembers every detail, every touch, every kiss. Until she realises the man in her dreams is James.
But Katie doesn’t even like James. And what about Jack, who is whisking her away for sexy mini breaks in the here and now?
Katie knows she needs to put an end to her dreams before they ruin her life. But how?
