Music Was My First Love
When I first heard those lyrics back in 1976, they resonated like crazy. Well, I was only 16. Four decades later, they still have the same impact and, as my long-suffering hubby will attest, I spend every waking minute of every day listening to music.
So when I wrote a book featuring an X-factor-style singing contest, the title suggested itself.
You can pick up a copy for only 99c/99p.
Here's an idea of what you'd be letting yourself in for:
Kat’s just a girl who can’t say no. Taking on the Teen Factor competition nearly breaks her, but there’s way more going on than just vote fixing. Kat glimpses the potential danger from a ruthless, underground organisation. Does she have the courage to continue her risky investigation?
And here's what people are saying:
"I love Kat. She speaks to me. I love to please people and want everyone to be happy, even at my own expense. I appreciate her struggles and her strength to endure."
"I enjoyed this behind-the-scenes look at a singing competition, and Tank is one of my favourite characters - what’s not to love about a camp goth with a rockstar dad?"
"Boy can I relate to Kat's inability to say no! I have enjoyed every Jacky Gray story I ever read. This one is no exception. Teen life is never easy - or dull!"
"It’s at heart a story of impossible love, wrapped up in a mystery adventure with overtones of many of the social issues teenagers face like bullying, coping with exam pressures and pushing limits. Kat, the main character was easy to relate to and I found the idea she hated being so 'Mary-Sue' hilarious."
