Or at least, the beginning of one?
I am about 35K words into my latest book - which I initially dubbed a chick-lit, but it is a little darker than that. It has being overweight and weight loss as a strong theme so far, and also delves into the idea that simply losing weight doesn't magically solve all your problems.
I have posted the prologue and first chapter on my blog, if anyone woud like to have a look at it and tell me what you think.
All That Glisters
Leanne Hughes has it all. She is beautiful, thin, rich and famous! So why is she found in the bathtub of her luxury mansion, wrists slashed? 'All that Glisters' is a dark look at what happens to a normal girl who unexpectedly wins the lottery and finds that money and fame doesn't necessarily bring happiness.
All that glisters is not gold;
Often have you heard that told:
Many a man his life hath sold
But my outside to behold:
Gilded tombs do worms enfold.
The Merchant of Venice, Act II Scene VII, William Shakespeare
