Fat Girls and Fairy Cakes ... the reviews so far!

I haven't blogged this week -  in the light of all the riots and fear I felt my twittering on about cake and books would probably be a little shallow even for me. Now the riots have died down however, I can reach new depths of superficiality in this latest blog - all about ME. Yes forget about war-torn Britain, the Global Economy and who's actually going to be in Celebrity Big Brother (though I'll admit that one's got me going).
The biggest thing that's about to happen is less than a month away - the publication of my chicklit tome Fat Girls and Fairy Cakes!
On 8th September my  tale of love, loss, friendship and cake will finally hit the shelves online and off and I may be visiting a Waterstones near you - so watch this space!
Meanwhile, to whet your appetite I thought you might like to know what some lovely magazines have already said about my life's work;

"You'll want to devour this smart and fabulously funny read in one go!"
Closer Magazine
“Sue Watson’s debut novel is as every bit delicious as the cakes she describes. With an obnoxious boss and a demanding family life, you’ll be rooting for the fabulous heroine right up until the last pages. Treat yourself to this engaging read, and make sure you’ve got a glass of wine and a sugary treat to hand – you’ll feel very hungry otherwise!”
Take a Break

“Laugh out loud funny ...this is a thoroughly enjoyable debut
novel that will have you reading bits of it to anyone within earshot."
Candis Magazine
