Seven years bad sex


7 Years Bad Sex

One wedding. One curse?  Disaster ever after…

A seven-years-bad-sex curse? Surely not! Yet something went wrong when rock singer Casey and drummer Alex got married on that beautiful yacht anchored off St Tropez in the south of France. Something went badly wrong. For even on their wedding night, the young couple discovers a complete and somewhat surprising inability to make love. Muddling through their honeymoon with a string of thin excuses for their predicament, the lovers defer finding a solution (and panicking) until the return to their home in London. After all, they married for life and to make rock music, not for the love of sex. Right?

But when they resume life as normal in London, all hell breaks loose. Increasingly frantic in their quest for release, the unhappy newlyweds embark on a string of hilarious and occasionally harmful antics that drives them, their band, and an assortment of random strangers to the brink of despair. But it ain’t over ‘til it’s over or, in this case… it ain’t over ‘til the newlyweds sing.

My Review

If you’re an author looking to increase sales of your book or if you’ve ever wondered how Amazon’s algorithms work then this is the book for you. In the two years since I started my writing journey, I’ve gleaned a lot of information mostly by trial and error or simply by chance.
What I like about this book is that it clearly sets out, chapter by chapter, what you need to do. The book takes you through each step with handy illustrations and there are even cards with handy tips on so there really is no excuse for not putting some of these ideas into practice.
It’s up-to-date too and bearing in mind how often Amazon changes the goalposts, there’s even a link to keep updated of any changes. A useful book that does exactly what it says on the cover – there’s even a chapter on that too!! I only wish I’d had this book two years ago but will certainly be trying out new things and bearing in mind some of the information when I write my next book.

Bianca's Vineyard


Bianca Corrotti's vineyard is more than a piece of mouth-watering real estate in Tuscany. It's an inheritance; a storehouse harboring the secrets of her Uncle Egisto, a world-class sculptor, and his troubled wife -- a woman whose destiny converges with Mussolini's when WWII overtakes them all. Based on a true story, Bianca's Vineyard follows a devoted family of strong-willed men and lion-hearted women waging an epic battle against a gathering storm intent on destroying their lives.

Author's Bio:

Teresa Neumann and her musician husband live in Oregon's beautiful Willamette Valley near their three children. As well as being an author and journalist, Teresa loves to fiddle on her violin and live "la dolce vita" in Italy whenever she can talk her family into going with her.

My Review

Set in Italy against the backdrop of the second world war, this book moved me to tears as we follow a family whose lives are torn apart. It isn’t necessarily an easy book to read. It deals with the atrocities of war, family feuds and depression. On the other hand it is a compelling read even if it is somewhat confusing in places. This aside, the author is skilled in making the reader want to know what happens to each character and this is even more heartbreaking when we realize it is based on her family’s true story. It may not be a happy ever after but it is gritty, realistic and ends on a satisfactory note with all the loose ends tied up. A great achievement.
