Could you find love on eBay? Meet Estelle Wilkinson

I love hearing from other romance authors and today I feel privileged to be the very first blog to host debut author, Estelle Wilkinson!  

Thank you, Katheryn, for inviting me to post on your blog and the opportunity to tell your readers about my debut book: It Started With A Click: A Memoir of an eBay Romance.

A little about the book:

It’s not unusual to meet someone on the internet these days but what if you were to meet them through eBay?

Well, that’s exactly what happened to Catherine (as I'm known in the book) at the end of 2003. England had just won the Rugby World Cup and released tickets to a match that December*. Being a rugby fan, Catherine went on to eBay to try and get two tickets. She succeeded and won an auction put on by Damien. This is where the story begins...

With a common interest as a spark, things started to move forward very quickly. It Started With A Click is purely the collection of emails and messages sent between the two as they came to know each other very well.

*To the non-sporty people out there; don't be put off by the fact that it all started due to rugby being a common interest. We do not spend the whole time chatting about sport. In fact, there is very little chat about it as we decide we're more interested in each other than football or rugby!

A little about me:

Writing under the pseudonym Estelle Wilkinson, I decided to publish these messages as so many people have repeatedly told me that I should! I must admit, I've always been intrigued to know whether they would make a good book. So, nine years on, I decided that I'll never know unless I try. So here I am trying. I have tried to change very little from the original messages that were sent so that people can experience it exactly as it happened to me. I hope people enjoy the journey just half as much as I did! It's a humorous and original romance with a touch of adult content...

Due to be published in ebook format on Tuesday 5th February 2013.
