The wait is over! My debut novel, My Best Rival, is officially launching on the 21st October. I cannot contain my excitement at finally getting to hold a novel I created in my hands.
The book launch will be held at Musta Kissa Bar in Kallio (Toinen linja 15, 00530 Helsinki.) Here you will be able to purchase paperback copies of the book- if you want I will sign them! The event will start at 18:00 with some live entertainment at 19:00, followed by a Q&A session. If don’t manage to get your book before the show starts don’t worry, I will still be around afterwards. There is no fee or ticket needed to attend the performance section of the evening. Books can be purchased with cash or MobilePay.
If you want to buy a paperback copy but aren’t able to make it to the event, just drop me a message. We can arrange to have one shipped to you after the 21st.
The night will feature comedy from performers:
Zachariah Chamberlaine, Marianna Keisalo and Susanna Viljanmaa!
We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
About the book:
My Best Rival is a young adult, queer romance, published by UK based indie publishers Spectrum Books.
Ru and Ocean have always taken every chance to rile each other up. Their friends have never taken it too seriously, until their senior year when their jibes turn violent.
After the pair are sentenced to detention, emotions boil out of control leading to a confusing, romantic entanglement. Unable to deny their feelings, they agree to explore a relationship in secret.
But Ru can tell Ocean is holding back. When things appear to be going well, Ocean suddenly disappears, leaving Ru distressed.
When Ocean returns everything changes. Can Ru and Ocean overcome the new obstacles in their relationship? Or will Ocean’s truth be too much for their young love?
