boy do I have exciting news for you today. I’m one of the three bloggers who’s revealing the cover for Erin Lawless’ new novel, ‘The One With The Engagement Party’ today. YAY! Lovely Erin has come up with a brilliant way to reveal the cover by getting her bridesmaid to do a little video. Pretty awesome, right? The book will be published by Harper Impulse on 26th of May, but you can pre-order it NOW for just 99p. As the cover is sooo gorgeous and I know you can’t resist a gorgeous, colourful cover, pre-order the book HERE.
As lovely Erin was in the mood to chat, I’ve also asked her three quick questions about the new book:
Q: What’s the inspiration behind the book?
A: The series was actually the brainchild of two of the editors at HarperCollins. They pulled me off what I was working on to get involved (my editor: “Nobody does bitter but funny like Erin Lawless…” which I’m taking as a compliment!) and I ran with it and really made their initial ideas my own. I love writing books that star friendships, particularly big groups of friends, so it’s definitely my area.
Q: Describe your new novel in 3 words?
A: Misunderstandings. History. Spice Girls (does that count as four?!).
Q: Do you believe there’s such thing as happily ever after in real life?
A: As much as I’m a bit of a romantic, the practical side of me says that nobody is “happily ever after” until they’re dead! And nobody is happy 24/7 – you’d go a bit bonkers, wouldn’t you? Having said that, of course I’d like to look back one day (far, far in the future!) and recognise that I probably did live “happily ever after”, after all.
Massive thanks to Erin for doing me the honour to take part in the reveal and answering my Qs and hope you guys enjoy the video. Cheerio, lovelies!
