From the Author
I was inspired to write this book after going to a verylarge Sikh wedding and seeing the demure old ladies whispering andsmiling. I wondered what do they talkabout and the character Samina was created.Again, the class issues in the UK are inspirational for story telling aswell as the multi-cultural diversity of London.
The title wasn't hard as it originally started out about theflaw of Sylvie's foot 'The imperfection of nine and half toes' then 'GoodVibration' came into my head, mostly because that's what sells the most inadult toy companies... as well as something else that is mentioned a few times inthe book, but not in a salacious manner.
And I did some research (not literally when it came to the toys...) but, anotherinspiration, was watching a documentary about the UK's most successful adulttoy distributor and that gave me lots of ideas.Nice normal people handling things that only some of us could imagine...mostly because we'd be initially apprehensive to buy them.
The book took seven months from start to finish but Istopped for two months because I was trying to find an ending that suited thecharacters and story. It came it mesuddenly. I was also avoiding lettinggo.
I did realise when writing this book, as I have done so withthe others, I didn't want it to end. Youfall in love with your own characters and I especially loved Samina and Toby aswell as Sylvie and Finlay. And there'sthe added bonus when I read the book back I laugh and get sad a little. That helps!
My hope is that the reader enjoys the characters andpeople. The backdrop is just a twistwhich makes it more fun, but it's about breaking down preconceived ideas aboutpeople and their backgrounds, realising it's about what's in the inside not theoutside that really counts.
About the Author
But one day I realised the imagery and the stories needed to come out, so I sat there and wrote.
I'm not an overnight talent, not a secret creative genius. I let it all unfold and even surprised myself with what was going on in my head.
I want you to escape into the characters. Laugh, cry, love, hate, but mostly enjoy.
They're not your run of the mill situations. Some of the people are flawed, but they have one thing in common. To find happiness but it's never that easy.
There are twists and turns to keep you wondering what's going on. Even when I'm writing, I have no idea where the story is heading... but it is going somewhere, sometimes where I never planned or expected.
The situations unfold like a film in my head. I can see it and feel it, and then when I'm sure about it, I write.
All novels are in British English and translates perfectly for all!

I look forward to much more from this author.
But S.M. Mala: it's a good book. It's easier to criticise. But I hope my review helps you to go beyond the expected.
I am currently 1% through, which is perhaps 8 pages in. Already I hate everything about it. I have no sense of who the characters are and the only one I can decipher - an elderly Indian lady - has all her dialogue written in broken english which I personally find rather offensive/insulting.
Tip: if youre going to have foreigners in your book, you can simply state that their English is not the best and continue to write it as though they are making sense. We all understand what an indian accent with broken english sounds like, its an insult to your readers intelligence.
Anyway, deleting this book before I get any more worked up about how people ARE able to charge for this kind of 'novel'.

That in itself sets the scene for a good laugh, but throw into the mix an aged Indian lady who professes to try the goods out herself, plus her command of the English language is way off the mark at times, and I found myself with tears streaming down my face.
This has so much in it you are left reeling with the love and intrigue, dirty dealings, nastiness, and people giving their all.........
If you read one book this year - make it this one! I loved it.
If you believe it's possible to fall in love with someone who seems at first to be so, so wrong (or even if you don't) this engaging, loving (and sometimes erotic) story will hook you and reel you in with its twists and turns.
If you don't read this book you'll be missing a treat.
Secondly, I felt like it was unnecessarily crude in places making the sex scenes uncomfortable reading.
Thirdly, the underlying racial messages missed their mark with me and just made me feel awkward. I didn't appreciate the attempt to show different cultures with the company employees because the author clearly had no understanding of most of them. The attempt at a Scottish accent was cringe worthy, I've never met a Scottish person yet who says diny in that context. In all honesty you're likely to offend them with your poor attempt.
In future please stick to what you know and get to the point although I won't be reading anything else you write and I wouldn't recommend others do either.
