A romantic comedy for the 21st Century.
What happened when Henry met Sophie.

Henry, late forties, company director with a penchant for fine wines, Napoleon brandy….and handcuffs. Woke up one day to find that his get up and go had got up and gone.
Follow Henry’s and Sophie’s bawdy adventures into the kinkier side of life, adventures that don’t always turn out as planned.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Humour is subjective. You have to ‘get’ a comedy writer’s sense of humour for the book to work.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Don’t expect your first book to sell thousands (or even hundreds). It is very unlikely that will happen, no matter how good it is.
The more products you have to sell the more likely it is that people will find you.
Quality – a great cover. Well proof-read, edited & formatted. It may be in your interest to pay a professional to do these things for you.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always loved comedy. I like to make people laugh. I find the current Fifty Shades explosion an excellent genre to parody. I wanted to write a romantic comedy that was a little more raunchy than the usual romcoms.
This is part 1 of a series of (probably) 5 books.
Book 2 (Blythe’s Spirit) has already been published.
Book 3 (Bad Man Rising) will be out later this year.
About the Author:
Paul Adams was born and educated in Hampton, England, before spending five years at Lancaster University trying to get a degree (English Literature, so he knows a bit about books, & Geography, so he can find his way to the library). With so many distractions (the sex & drugs & rock and roll) it was a serious struggle, apparently.
After graduation, he was part of the alternative comedy scene in London in the 1980’s, before realising that maybe he should get a ‘proper job’.
After twenty five years in the Civil Service in London and Bristol, he decided to ‘get a life’ and resigned to dedicate his time to writing fiction and designing gardens.
His first novel – ‘Time Was’ – was published in March 2013 and the sequel, ‘Blythe’s Spirit’, was published in July 2013.
Two further novels in the series are also planned, one (Bad Man Rising) for release in 2014, and the second later that year (as yet untitled). These will make up the ‘Henry Blythe’ series of novels. There may well be more.
He will also, at some time in the future, branch out into crime fiction, which is where his professional background lies.
He now lives in Western Australia, where the beer is not as good but at least it doesn’t rain as often.
