An interesting surprise


Well, this was a bit of a surprise! Dead Ernest (last night - it's been deposed now) was Amazon no.1 in Christian romantic fiction. I'd no idea there was such a thing, and the link in this novel is a bit tenuous (an almost-adulterous vicar), but I'm not knocking it. I'd hate the book to be considered churchy or prudish, but at least its being considered! (Still available on Kindle for only 99p. Just
saying…)

  4. I found out about Christian Romantic Fiction when my kindle was given to me as a birthday present in 2013. Back then, I went on a mad downloading spree, stuffing my kindle to the brim with all sorts of free ebooks, some of which turned out to be Christian Romantic Fiction. Some of them I truly enjoyed, others I found hard to bear.
    You know I have read Dead Ernest (and reviewed it on my blog); never would I have classified it as Christian Romantic Fiction!

    1. Neither would I, Meike! It’s a bit worrying....

  5. Makes me think I should read it again too, as in my memory I haven't put it into that "box" either ;)

    1. It’s a two edged thing, DT. It might attract people who are expecting one thing and get another, or vice versa. On the other hand, that red sticker thing is quite nice to have, even if it’s gone now!
