Working from home book launch set for 18th April

It’s been a long time coming but my novel Working from home: Mixing business with pleasure will be launched on April 18th 2012. As befitting the subject the launch will be coming to your home via the Internet and the local press across Somerset and Devon.

There will be an online competition to win an Amazon Kindle (or £90 of Amazon vouchers) so there is no excuse not to buy a copy! Full details to follow but you can get an early competition entry by liking the Working from Home Facebook page.

Working from home Book blurb

Jonny has an interesting twenty-four hours. One evening he walks in on his naked flatmates in a compromising position on the sofa. The next morning he discovers that the improper use of a Matalan card can result in a bloody nose for the woman of his dreams. By lunch time he discovers that the huge company he works for is shipping out making him and hundreds of others in the area redundant.

Cat is one of those employees and her efforts to turn to freelancing are hindered by someone trying to black-ball her in the industry unless she agrees to sleep with him. Added to this she is just about to catch the attention of a serial adulterer via her new age sister, whose idea of a business plan for her local pub is persuading the barmaids to wear low-cut tops.

Will Jonny and Cat find enough work to pay for the necessities in life like beer and shoes? Can you really work via the Internet from home in your pyjamas? Will Jonny and Cat manage to mix business and pleasure, or will they fail to close the win-win deal?

Working from home is lads’ lit asking chick lit out for an adventurous date into the serious world of business networking, where it’s not who you know that really matters, but who knows you.


Early orders for the Working from Home e-book

Working from home has a launch date of 18th of April 2012 and in order to achieve my aim of getting into the Kindle top 10 bestsellers I need to concentrate orders on that day. I have a fancy spreadsheet running listing people who have expressed an interest in buying a copy. The launch price will be £2.99. If you want to be added to this list please email me at russ(at)russwrites.co.uk replacing the (at) with @ (a cunning ruse to prevent my email address being harvested by spammers).

Once on this list you will receive three emails from me. One on the 17th April, one on the launch day and one afterwards telling you how the launch went and giving you the opportunity to be on the list for my next book launch.

You will not be added to a newsletter list and your email address will not be sold or given to any third party even if they offer me three camels and a packet of Skittles for it.
