My very first novel! Eeek!
I enjoyed writing this one so much. It was a wild ride. It was the biggest word count I’d ever done in the shortest amount of time I’d ever done it in. It was a challenge that I loved. It involved a lot of very funny research into bad dates. It involved a lot of research into what constitutes the perfect man. It involved a lot of research into just about everything. The research file for this novel is bigger than all my other novel research files put together!
A lot changed between the first draft and the second draft. Entire plots, the entire point of the novel really. To say anymore would be a spoiler.
About 12,000 words were then cut from the second draft to the third draft. The third draft was then heavily edited and has now become the published version.
Finding the perfect man isn’t easy. Especially when it’s for your mother…
Mothers. Can’t live with them, can’t live without them, can’t live three doors down the road without them interfering in every aspect of your life.
Mackenzie Atkinson’s mother has meddled in her love life once too often and something has to be done. Mackenzie decides to turn the tables and find love for her lonely mother.
Her lonely and very fussy mother.
Surely finding an older gentleman looking for love won’t be that hard, right?
If you’ve ever thought that boys grow up, here’s the problem: They don’t. Ever.
And Mackenzie is about to learn that the hard way.
Faced with a useless boyfriend, dressed up dogs, men who wear welly boots on dates, men who shouldn’t be seen outside in daylight, and men who make reptiles seem like attractive company – will she ever find the perfect man for her neurotic mother?
