Under the debut spotlight today is Lisa Dickenson and her debut novel The Twelve Dates of Christmas, a 6 part romantic comedy that will be published in weekly installments from today until 16 December.
Dates 1 & 2
Claudia is a girl in a rut. At 30, her life is stale and the romance in her relationship with long-term boyfriend, Seth, has disappeared. Determined to inject some Christmas spark back into their life, Claudia and Seth go on their first date in a very long time to the Royal Opera House. But when the night ends in disaster, Claudia suddenly finds herself facing life alone.
Life alone is exciting, scary and full of soon-forgotten exercise regimes and ill-advised DIY attempts at making sexy underwear. It's also full of men. Thank goodness for best friends Penny and Nick, otherwise Claudia would have no clue what to do about all these new choices. One thing's for certain, though: this year, Christmas is going to be very different...
Hilarious, uplifting and romantic, The Twelve Dates of Christmas is a story about losing love, about finding love, and about discovering what's been there all along.

Lisa Dickenson was born in the wrong body. She was definitely meant to be Beyonce. Despite this hardship, she grew up in Devon attempting to write her own, completely copyright infringing versions of Sweet Valley High, before giving Wales a go for university, and then London a go for the celeb-spotting potential. She's now back in Devon, living beside the seaside with her husband and forcing cream teas down the mouths of anyone who'll visit. She is sadly still not Beyonce.
The Twelve Dates of Christmas is Lisa's first novel. Follow her on Twitter for all her book news and Beyonce-related chatter: @LisaWritesStuff or head over to her website www.lisadickenson.com
As I'd already pre-ordered all 6 books the first installment has already been downloaded onto my Kindle this morning so I'll be reading this as soon as I can.
