Hello, and thanks for visiting my author site... Some of you will have clicked on here because of Twitter/Facebook/Instagram.. Or:
a) You've Googled my illustrated children's book,'The Rainbow Weaver' and followed my linked name
b) You're against the pressure to be a 'perfect size' and joining the campaign
Or: You're just here because the damn search engine led you down a bad link? In which case, my sincere apologies (It's SO annoying).
Whatever, WELCOME! For those of you who liked FAT CHANCE, it's NOW OUT in a smaller mass market size (handy for traveling if you're off on your hols). We've also changed it's name and it has a new cover. It's now called: MAKING IT BIG (a more positive title to cheer us up in these depressing economic times)
There's also a new twist and change of ending in the last few chapters... so if you loved it the first time, you may want to get it again... otherwise, be careful not to buy it twice.
If on the other hand... you're new to the book and curious to know what MAKING IT BIG is about, here's the back page:-
THRILLED TO SAY MAKING IT BIG HIT NO. 9 UK KINDLE (out of 850,000 fiction and non-fiction books)
It also held No.2 spot in WOMEN'S FICTION for over 60 days, and No.6 in CONTEMPORARY FICTION
SO IT'S OFFICIALLY A BEST SELLER!

I'VE SOLD THE FILM OPTION - AND SIGNED A SCRIPT DEAL!
IN HOLLYWOOD WITH LEE ARONSOHN (co-creator of US top hit comedy TWO AND A HALF MEN and Producer/writer of THE BIG BANG THEORY). And loving it. All a bit of a surreal dream... The sun, palm trees, assistants, vintage Hollywood bungalow... (feels like I'm IN the book! See gallery for more photos)STOP PRESS*STOP PRESS*STOP PRESS*STOP PRESS*STOP PRESS*
My agent and publisher has just sold the book to JAPAN and TURKEY - Looking forward to seeing it in different languages.Anyway, this is where it all started...
LAUNCH NIGHT - the team
As we have now changed the original book title, I apologize that rest of the site is a mix of publicity and reviews from the launch of the original version, FAT CHANCE. But hopefully, that tells you all you may want to know about MAKING IT BIG.
The relaunch version Making It Big has been tremendous fun, with cupcake teashop book signings (sigh, such hell!)
(Only annoyance, it seems my husband prefers my uber-flattering, heavily retouched marketing cut-out far more than me - says he's taking her out for dinner next week)
