Squeeeee! I’m very happy to present the new cover for The Uncanny Life Of Polly, the newest book out this summer, 28th June, from the lovely Karen Aminadra. I had a lot of fun making the cover with her, and you wonderful people better pick it up once it’s out! It’s a contemporary comedy, and one writers especially might be interested in. What would happen…if your life started imitating your latest book?
Lookit. Lookit. You know you want a copy.
Polly writes chick lit and her debut novel is a worldwide bestseller. However, something strange starts to happen when she gets back from an international book tour. Polly finds that instead of art imitating life, her life starts to imitate art – or rather, her novel.
She arrives home to find her husband in the arms of the maid. Wasn’t that in Chapter Three of her book, Happily Ever After?
Her best friend is having an affair with her husband, too, and is pregnant! Isn’t that in Chapter Four?
Then she meets a bronzed Greek and embarks on a passionate love affair. Wasn’t that in Chapter Seven?
Will anyone believe her life is mirroring her novel?
Can she prevent the ultimate tragedy or must the book play out, precisely as she wrote it, to the bitter end?
Her agent recommends that Polly go and live Happily Ever After on the proceeds of her book, and keep away from drama!
About The Author
Karen Aminadra is an English author who can usually be found with her head in the clouds and muttering inanely to herself. She mostly resides in her writing cave, and is occasionally allowed to come out to eat. Her love of reading, writing short stories and her childhood imaginary world led quite naturally to writing novels. Encouraged to read by her bookworm father and grandmother and by winning a writing competition in just her first year of secondary school, she was spurred on, and she has been writing stories ever since. Her love of mystery and plot twists that she put into that first story continues today. She has travelled to and lived in many countries, not just in her imagination, and has gained an insight into people’s characters that shines through in her work. Today, with her feet firmly back in England, she travels the world, the universe and in time through her imagination and her novels.
