Welcome back to the weekly Talk of the Town linky which I co-host with Heidi from Cosmochicklitan.  If you haven’t joined in with us before, you can check out all the details of the linky on a separate page and if you have any questions, please ask.

When we left you in December we said we had something exciting to share with you and now we can finally reveal that we have a new sponsor.  We’re delighted to share that we’re collaborating with Black & White Publishing!

Talk of the TownBlack & White Publishing was founded in 1999. Since then, they’ve grown into one of Scotland’s leading independent publishers with over 300 books in print across a variety of genres. Committed to publishing the best books from the most talented writers in the UK and beyond they produce an extensive range of titles, including general non-fiction,  biography,  sport and humour,  as well as selected fiction,  young adult and children’s books.

Not only will we be showcasing a novel from Black & White Publishing on the linky but everyone who tweets with the hashtag #ToTT will be entered into a monthly giveaway for either a single book or a book bundle.  If you’re sharing my weekly post and can add @bwpublishing that would be fab.  The giveaway might be paperback (UK/ROI) or digital (UK/ROI/INTL).  The winner will be randomly selected using Tweetdraw and books will be sent directly from Black & White Publishing.  Make sure you use the shortened hashtag so that your tweets can be picked up and added to the random draw.

This month we are showcasing The Secret Life of Lucy Lovecake by Pippa James.  Publishing 19th January, watch out for the blog tour from 16th – 27th January.  I’m taking part on 17th January with something I’m baking 🙂 If you love The Great British Bake Off, you’ll love this!  (psssst you might be surprised who the author is!)

Talk of the Town

Daisy Delaney’s life is pancake-flat. A talented baker and passionate lingerie specialist, she has wound up with no one to bake for and a career that hasn’t proved successful. But when she starts a delicious relationship with famous French author-chef, Michel Amiel, everything begins to look a bit more exciting.
 
That is, until Michel’s bestselling cookbook is knocked off the top spot by newcomer ‘Lucy Lovecake’. His outdated recipes slide down the charts while the popularity of Lucy Lovecake’s new dating cookbook is rising like the perfect sponge.
 
As Daisy teeters on the brink of love, how can she ever tell Michel that she is the mysterious Lucy Lovecake? Could he ever forgive her for finishing off his career? And more importantly, does Daisy even want to be with a difficult, egotistical, down-on-his-luck Frenchman just as her career is beginning to take off? Especially when she has some other very interesting offers…

 

Talk of the TownPippa James is a full-time writer with a love for food, fashion and all things French. She is best known as Janey Louise Jones, author of the fantastically successful Princess Poppy series, with sales of over 4m copies to date. Before Princess Poppy took over her life, Pippa James had always intended to write contemporary fiction, and this debut novel is the start of a brand-new series. Pippa James is mother to three sons.

We hope you’re as excited as we are!

Is anyone taking part in any book challenges this year?  I’ve decided I need to shake up my reading habits so I’ve created a reading challenge.  Let me know what you think.

Looking forward to reading your posts on Talk of the Town.  Have a great week.
