Awhile back I blogged before that no man (or writer) is an island and how important it is to support and promote the work of our fellow authors. There’s no time to worry about there being enough readers to go around or that the genre in which you write is saturated with thick competition. Get over that! Not only are you doing yourself a disservice, but you’re forgetting one key point–readers CAN have several “favorite” authors. ( I know I do!)
Since I’m all about spreading the word, it’s with great pleasure that I tell you about author Sharon Black’s debut novel, ” Going Against Type,” a romantic comedy released as an e-book by Tirgearr Publishing.
Ms. Black shares that “Going Against Type,” “is set against the backdrop of Dublin newspapers. It’s the story of two rival columnists, –one a sports journalist, the other a fashion writer who write anonymous columns for their newspapers – and fall in love without realizing they are bitter enemies in print.”
I was very surprised to see that her hero was the fashion writer. It puts a different, yet nice spin on things! Lending to the book’s authenticity, is Ms. Black’s background in journalism and her work with The Evening Herald and The Irish Examiner.
Another thing that caught my eye about the novel is that it’s set in Dublin. Yes! There’s something about a sweet Irish romance that just pulls me in. As a matter of fact, one of my favorite movies is Leap Year , a romantic comedy with Amy Adams, which is also set in Dublin. I loved the countryside scenery, the people and of course the romance. “Going Against Type” gives me that same vibe and I so look forward to diving in!
