EXCLUSIVE CHRISTMAS BOOK BUNDLE from LOCAL AUTHOR

How do you choose the book that will be a Christmas highlight?
You know someone who loves to discover new authors, and books to share with their book-club friends. They like to browse in bookshops and attend author events but sometimes struggle to allow themselves this time away from professional commitments and family responsibilities.
Would you like to buy them a book which isn’t just a last-minute selection from the supermarket shelves or one of the latest high profile reads promoted on The Graham Norton Show?
Would you like to buy them a book with relatable characters who stay with them, long after the book is finished, one which may even inspire them to make more time for themselves, and their love of reading?
And if the book is one which both stimulates debate and has a page-turning plot, even better.
For an added bonus you can buy your signed copy of Pivotal and a bundle of other exclusive Pivotal goodies as shown above for £7, and ‘Click and Collect‘ it in person from local St Albans author Nikki, on Saturday 10th December 10.45am till 12.15 at the Highfield Park Trust Visitor Centre Hill End Lane St Albans AL4 0RA.
Alternatively for the delivery option for £7+PP please select ‘Delivery by Post‘ and you will receive your bundle by royal mail.
Pivotal – A Relationship Mystery
How many doors does one person open in a lifetime? When you pass through a door, does your life change forever? Or do you have power over who you become by the choices you make?
Dulcie Braybrooke is breaking through as a celebrated ceramicist.
Elizabeth is a lonely City head-hunter.
Annie is a teacher who’s lost her verve.
Liza is a lap dancer with a strong will and a tough life.
When a mysterious bequest throws each of the four into chaos, they seek support from hypnotherapist, Dr Kath O’Hannon. Through a process of self-discovery, their new-found knowledge weighs heavily, as they unpick four decades of life choices. They could accept the windfall, yet if they do, something entirely unexpected lies around the corner…
What an imaginative, absorbing read! I love the mystery, the reveal of which was held masterfully up till the end. You have a brilliant tone of voice: it’s witty and fast-paced. I also thought the characters of Dulcie, Elizabeth, Liza and Annie were fully realised – distinct from each other, and yet with unifying quests that the reader can identify by the end. The mystery is subtle, and yet it is kept up all the way through: what will each of the women decide, and how are they connected to one another in all this?
You take the reader on a real journey through this book. It felt a little like watching a rom com (with perhaps more ‘com’ than ‘rom’); snuggling up with these fascinating lives, swivelling on a turning point, raising thoughts about what might have been or could have been on and off the page… This is a book that will get readers thinking – and talking, as well. I thought London, and the British countryside, were brought to life vividly in an almost nostalgic way, helping me sink into the story and picture myself in the protagonists’ shoes. It’s the sort of novel you fall into, and with its variety of voices, it will appeal to a wide range of readers.
A Note From Nikki
I write contemporary book-group fiction, novels exploring the often-neglected stories of mid-life characters, which are rich with gritty experiences whilst full of possibilities for growth and change. As an author I want to give a voice to people who may be feeling stuck and tell uplifting stories giving readers hope that second chances can happen.
Both my debut Pivotal, and my next novel, which is underway, are stories of ordinary people in extraordinary situations, which any of us could find ourselves in. Stories to get people thinking ‘What if I was in that position? ‘What would I do?’ Stories of optimism and new beginnings.
Whether you opt for delivery or to click and collect, I’ll be at the Highfield Park Visitors Centre (see Map) on the 10th, so please do pop by and say hello. Any excuse to chat books with fellow book lovers!
