Dear Mr Pop Star by Derek & Dave Philpott #BookReview #BlogTour

A collection of hilarious letters to iconic pop and rock stars with fantastic in-on-the-joke replies from the artists themselves: Eurythmics, Heaven 17, Deep Purple, Devo, Dr. Hook and many, many more…

For more than a decade, Derek Philpott and his son, Dave, have been writing deliberately deranged letters to pop stars from the 1960s to the 90s to take issue with the lyrics of some of their best-known songs. They miss the point as often as they hit it.

But then, to their great surprise, the pop stars started writing back... 

Dear Mr Pop Star contains 100 of Derek and Dave's greatest hits, including correspondence with Katrina and the Waves, Tears for Fears, Squeeze, The Housemartins, Suzi Quatro, Devo, Deep Purple, Nik Kershaw, T’Pau, Human League, Eurythmics, Wang Chung, EMF, Mott the Hoople, Heaven 17, Jesus Jones, Johnny Hates Jazz, Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine, Chesney Hawkes and many, many more.

I'm delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for Dear Mr Pop Star toda…

#CoverReveal - The Little Church by the Sea by Liz Taylorson

I'm absolutely delighted to be taking part in a very special mass cover reveal today. The Little Church by the Sea by Liz Taylorson is the first women's fiction title by new publishers, Manatee Books.

First though, here's the description,

Isolated and unwelcome in the picturesque seaside village of Rawscar, Reverend Cass Fordyce has lost her faith and her home. Christmas is coming, and she isn’t looking forward to it. Then she meets attractive local man Hal - twice divorced and with a reputation as a ladies’ man he’s everything that a celibate vicar like Cass should avoid…especially as Hal is hiding secrets of his own, including his past with the mysterious Anna.
Can Cass ever find her way in Rawscar? What secret does Hal have to hide? And is there ever such a thing as a truly fresh start?

Doesn't that sound like an absorbing read for Christmas? I'm sure you'll all join me in wishing Liz Taylorson and Manatee Books all the very best.

So now for the main event, the cover reveal...

Isn't it lovely? I'm sure lots of people will be tempted by such a gorgeous cover. The Little Church by the Sea will be published on 23rd November. You can pre-order the ebook here.

Don't forget to follow Liz Taylorson  and Manatee Books on Twitter. My grateful thanks to the publishers for inviting me to take part in today's cover reveal.
