We are incredibly excited to be publishing The Pick-Up Artist, by Chris Hill.
His first novel, Song of the Sea God, was short listed for the Daily Telegraph Novel in a Year prize and won the eFestival of Words award for Best Literary Fiction. As a short story, it also won the prestigious Bridport Prize.
Here’s a nibble of Chris’ rib-tickling plot:
Rob Thompson, a 22 year old advertising executive is excruciatingly shy and supremely unsuccessful at dating.
In a desperate attempt to find a girlfriend, his best friend Sam advises him to seek the advice of a web community called The Pick-Up Artists, who use psychological techniques to help their members appeal to the opposite sex.
Follow Rob’s exploits in this romantic comedy as he attempts to apply his newly learned techniques and finds himself wrapped up in surprising circumstances.
Rob does his best to juggle various women through a variety of challenging situations as he battles to weave PUA advice into his chaotic social life. It’s a world where women seem far more complex and sophisticated than he could ever be.
Will Rob make the grade, or crash, burn and fade?
The Pick-Up Artist is a colourful comedy for the digital age with a modern twist on the quest for love.
Chris will be appearing at the Lyme Literary Festival to launch his latest title, further details will be posted here and undoubtedly on his website and social media.
