Hi guys. You know Valentine's Day is coming up. Not everyone likes to celebrate the day of luurve. Some people flat out loathe it. A friend of mine has a new release today and she's taken Valentine's Day and added a vengeful twist! I love this concept. Check it out.
Revenge is a dish best served cold according to Pierre Choderlos de Laclos, but Darcy Delany turns up the heat in Sweet Revenge.Murderous grandmothers, harried husbands and bullied employees take matters into their own hands in this entertaining collection of short stories from a sassy storyteller.
Does Valentine’s day give you a sinking feeling?
Darcy Delany hears you!
Sweet Revenge is an anti-Valentine’s Day offering from Darcy Delany. She dropped by today to tell us a little more about this book.
Valentine’s Day is not a day everyone enjoys, so I wanted to create a collection of stories for those feeling cranky with cupid on February 14!Ever since reading the The Count of Monte Christo I’ve become intrigued by stories of revenge, particularly in relation to love. For those who haven’t read that book, it’s the story of one man’s intricate retribution on those who had him falsely imprisoned, resulting in his fiancé marrying another. What struck me about the story was how easily the passion of love can be turned in other directions, and how devastatingly effective that redirected energy can be.My characters in Sweet Revenge are every day people who have been pushed to their limits, are sick of waiting for karma to start working, and take action in entertaining ways. We’ve all had those moments, whether we want to admit it publicly is another matter! They’re stories to make people smile when they’re having a bad day - letting them take revenge vicariously, without the stress of plotting and planning!
She makes a mean sangria and loves karaoke.
