The French House, and The Case of the Missing Boyfriend have each broken the 200,000 barrier this month. Thanks so much readers. You’ve put a huge grin on my face.
Well there’s a first. After The Half-Life of Hannah reached #1 in Amazon’s Kindle chart, and spent five months in the top 20, my latest novel The French House has leapt straight in at #3! And the prequel The Case Of The Missing Boyfriend is back in the charts at #10 as well! I’m so touched by the enthusiasm of my readers. 2013 is looking to be the best year ever. Thankyou!
On the surface, The Case of The Missing Boyfriend appears to be a classic ‘chick lit’ tale of a thirty-something woman looking for love but it’s actually an in depth look at lead character CC’s life over the course of a year as she copes with the ups and downs thrown at her. As the novel started, CC reminded me very much of a cross between Bridget Jones and Carrie Bradshaw; she lives and parties in London, has a successful and glamorous career in advertising, owns her own flat and has a fabulous gang of gay male friends to keep her entertained and a couple of close female friends to put things in perspective.

Can you tell us a little about your average writing day?
I’ve always had a bit of a lazy streak, and I find it terribly difficult to get down to work. In the old pre-social-media days I would do anything to avoid getting down to work: housework, cleaning windows, polishing my keyboard, brushing the cat…” http://www.novelicious.com/2013/02/novelicious-chats-tonick-alexander.html
Kim Talks Books interviews yours truly.
“A few weeks ago, I found out about Nick Alexander through some of his fans on Twitter. I was curious, so I picked up two of his books–The Half-Life of Hannah and The Case of the Missing Boyfriend–for my beloved Kindle. I wasn’t disappointed. Both books are great reads (get thee to Amazon or your fave bookstore and buy his books ASAP). I tracked down Nick and asked him if I could interview him for kimtalksbooks.” <more here>
Frothyreads.com reviews The Half-Life Of Hannah.
“This exceeded my expectations, such a nuanced, well-written tale. All the characters are well thought out, and the surprises along the way (which I didn’t see coming) make it unputdownable once you’ve got into it.”
