It's the book birthday of The Millionaire Plan by Kay Harbourne. It's a year today since it was published by Astraea Press (www.astraeapress.com) as a paperback and an ebook. It has since gone on to be shortlisted in the 2014 In d'tale Ronė Awards.
The story features Amber Wynters who is on a mission to find a millionaire to marry – and fast. Her parents are nearly bankrupt and forced to sell the family home, a beautiful Tudor house that had been in the family for generations. And it’s all thanks to Amber’s ex-fiancé Rod persuading them to invest in his dodgy shares.
So armed with a ‘How to Hook a Millionaire’ Book and a ten point plan, she sets off to hook herself a rich husband. Then she meets the drop-down gorgeous Jed Curtess. The attraction between them is sizzling but Jed is only a hired hand on one of the millionaire’s yachts. Can Amber ignore her heart and follow her plan?
Kay Harborne has written several romance stories for women's magazines and has had two romance novels published. She also writes under the name of Karen King as a children's author with around 120 books published ranging from gorgeous picture books, such as Silly Moo to thought-provoking YA novel Perfect Summer.
Karen/Kay is also a creative writing tutor, and we often team up to run writing workshops - including our KAT Project (Kids and Authors Together) where we do author visits to schools, as a double-whammy!
She has a variety of new books in the pipeline which she's currently working on - including a children's series which I'm delighted to be co-writing with her. More about that later.
So, happy 1st birthday to The Millionaire Plan, and good luck with all the other books.
