QUOTES:

"Picked up Dance Your Way earlier. Read for a few minutes, entranced, then thought of [the following]...
DO NOT READ THIS BOOK while making lunch. You will burn the scampi.
DO NOT READ THIS BOOK while eating dinner. It goes cold.
I feel as if everything's gone quiet. We're all reading the book!" - Sarah Kachel

***************

"It's clever without being pompous or patronising; funny without being puerile; thought-provoking without being hard work. I enjoyed it enormously." - Helen Kara

***************

"What a hoot. I must admit, it is not the sort of thing that I usually read, but I really did enjoy it. It is a book full of surprises - of titillation, of twists and turns, of fun, revelations and dreams. But mostly, this is a book full of heart and hope." - Sue Guiney

***************

"Charming and delightful - while still packing a punch! This novel is quirky and clever and big-hearted in all the right ways." - Kathleen Bryson

***************

"I love your book! It's wonderful and I feel very privileged to have read it in advance. It is original, funny and wonderfully odd. Reading this book makes me feel as if I've been psychic dancing with a group of new best friends." - Sarah Salway

***************

"It's a great book. So fresh and entertaining, with genuinely compelling characters and sparkling dialogue. But it's impossible to pigeon hole and sadly, that's enough in these worst of days to scare off potential publishers. Bah!
This book is magic. You can feel it; pulsing from the prose; pushing from the page; penetrating your psyche. Read it. Go on, you know you want to ..." - Debi Alper

***************

"Wonderfully odd and utterly compulsive - some of the snazziest similes I've read all year." - Jen Maltby (full review will be published on Jen's blog on or after 5th Aug)

***************

"An energetic riot of a book, packed with mind-bending mentalism, New Age nonsense and cross-gender bed-hopping." - Kat Arney

***************

"Turing piles on the pressure and suddenly these characters become something close to those irritating friends that are always doing the wrong thing, but you still love. She subtly examines just why people want to believe so much, and starts questions in the mind about whether it is better to allow people the comfort of their beliefs or to expose what is really happening. It's funny, bitter-sweet and disturbing in equal parts. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a novel that's both entertaining and a feast for the mind." - Brian Clegg

***************

"This novel is deliciously different. It is ambitious in its storytelling and poignantly beautiful in its writing." - Helen M Hunt (Bookersatz)

***************

"If you want a book that delights in simple narrative, which has a well paced story to keep you intrigued and turning the pages, a book that dabbles in drugs and sex and sexuality, and above all if you want a book that presumes you are able to follow along without signposts at every turn, then you should buy this book.
It's loaded with sharp dialogue, some gorgeous imagery, and is punctuated with a down to earth wit which has you laughing and smiling. This is easily one of the more original stories I've read all year." - Gordon McLean
(full review on Gordon's blog)

***************

"The themes of love, loss, betrayal, faith, and illusion are handled well. There is no moralising, no sense that the author has an axe to grind, merely that she has an insight she wishes to share and the talent to share it in such an interesting and entertaining way. The author also does the reader the honour of treating them as intelligent. If you like an intelligent read that is both thoughtful and entertaining; if you like a book that is well written; if you like something a little out of the ordinary; then I suggest you buy this book. You'll be doing yourself a favour and you'll be supporting a writer who deserves much greater recognition." - Graeme K Talboys
(full review on Graeme's blog)

***************

"A fascinating concept, eloquently explored, making you wonder about what is true and what is imagined." - Emily Dubberley

***************

"I've just read most of the extracts, and it does look really good. Interesting. Fun." - Karl Webster, aka Bete de Jour
