Honeysuckle Jones

I've just uploaded the first chapter of my brand spanking new manuscript, Honeysuckle Jones onto Authonomy, and now, of course, I have that anxious sick feeling that everyone will hate it. I entered this chapter into the recent Novelicious Undiscovered competition and didn't place, so am extra nervous that it's rubbish!
But... I kind of really like it, so i'm persevering with the story to see where it takes me.

It's the story of Honeysuckle Jones, the middle daughter of Jane Jones, a failed actress who blames her lack of success on her plain name rather than her dubious acting skills. When her daughters were born, she was determined that they would have names that made them stand out from the crowd – hence Cherry Blossom, Honeysuckle and Bluebell, born over three consecutive years to three different fathers.
This book tells Honeysuckle's story, and I'm thinking of writing Cherry & Bluebell's stories too, a trilogy of sisters.
Hey, it worked for Freya North...

If you have five minutes, give it a read through and let me know what you think?

  1. It sounds fab. Am rushing out the door now but will definitely take a look later :)

  2. Loved it when I first read it and love it even more now! As you can see from your commentors on Authonomy, they love it too!! Hope you're busy writing the rest, chica!!

  3. Cheers, Maya. Am trying, I've hit one of those sticking points where you go and hoover, or shop, or surf the net - procrastination is my middle name this morning.

  4. Love it! Congratulations Jo, and keep writing I want to read the rest!
