The Sequel Cometh

Ladies and gentlemen! Dogs and cats! Children and... okay, I'll stop. But you can see how excited I am to share the news that Construct A Couple, the follow-up to Build A Man, will be available as an ebook next week! And even more delightful (for me, anyway), I'm really happy with it.




If any of you would like a review copy, please let me know -- either in the comments or by emailing me at talliroland AT gmail.com. I'll gleefully fire one your way with the utmost of thanks!

With a great job at a reputable magazine and a man who’s the perfect match, Serenity Holland thinks she’s laid the foundation for an ideal London life. When a routine assignment uncovers a shocking secret threatening her boyfriend’s company, Serenity decides to leave nothing to chance, taking matters into her own hands. Soon, though, she realises keeping secrets isn't as easy as she thought . . . and the consequences are far worse than she ever imagined.


All I can say is... phew! With every novel I've written, there's always a sweaty-palmed, heart-fluttering moment where I think that I'll never be able to turn my pile of crud into something readable. This novel has been written through Canada and Egypt, house-guests galore, some very exciting news, and more. And it's finally done! Just a few more read-throughs, and it's ready to go. 

I'm off to collapse in a corner now...

Have a great Wednesday! (It is Wednesday, right? I've lost all track of time.)

  9. What a great idea, Talli. Secrets, even with the best intentions, have a way of biting you. I like this idea with what it can do to a couple.

    I'd love to read this one!

    (Ps. I think sweaty palms and a mild form of hyperventilation is a normal condition for writers, when they release a new book, lol!)

  19. Congratulations! Sequels are fun because it's always great to find out how the characters are doing and how their lives have changed. Often when I get to the end of a book I find myself wondering what will happen next, and the sequel answers that question. I think it'd be fun to write one too.
