A harrowing, savage and sexual thriller that turns genre fiction inside-out gets a general release this week.
A Disturbed Girl’s Guide to Curing Boredom, by debut novelist James Howell, already has a growing army of online fans, even though it is only released for the first time on Thursday, June 30th.
More than 1,200 people worldwide have signed up to the Facebook fan page prior to publication by the independent Amygdala Press.
With the novel launching in electronic formats and paperback, the story of the rise and decline of journalist Hannah Harker will reach a global audience and promises to be the underground hit of the summer.
Author James Howell said: “Hannah Harker will be loved by some readers, and hated by others, but her story will force everyone to look at their own life and confront some very uncomfortable questions.
“Her actions and the consequences will sicken many people, but the underlying motivation behind what she does is simply to live a happy and rewarding life instead of being trampled into dull mediocrity by rules, authority and social convention.
“Everyone is capable of achieving more than they currently do, and hopefully Hannah Harker will provide a twisted inspiration for people to wake up and set their goals much higher.”
Mandy Sullivan, Operations Director at Amygdala Press, said: “There seems to be a growing demand for novels about strong, complex and off-the-wall female characters and the word-of-mouth interest we have seen across social media for A Disturbed Girl’s Guide to Curing Boredom has identified a very clear audience for us.
“Readers are really going to engage with the character Hannah Harker and we see this as just the first in a series of extreme and shocking adventures for her.”
