Here’s a brief synopsis of THE HATING GAME: When man-eater Mattie Johns agrees to star on a dating game show to save her ailing recruitment business, she's confident she'll sail through to the end without letting down the perma-guard she's perfected from years of her love 'em and leave 'em dating strategy.

After all, what can go wrong with dating a few losers and hanging out long enough to pick up a juicy £200,000 prize? Plenty ..... Mattie discovers, when it's revealed that the contestants are four of her very unhappy exes.

Can Mattie confront her past to get the prize money she so desperately needs, or will her exes finally wreak their long-awaited revenge? And what about the ambitious TV producer whose career depends on stopping her from making it to the end?

When someone expresses hatred, one can choose to see the message of love shining through. One chooses to learn hatred or to reflect back an expression of love.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

and a websplash is ..? Not sure I just followed along .. and everyone (450 supporters she lined up) .. blogged, Facebooked, Twitted and tweeted etc ..

The results were amazing - as you'll see on Talli's blog ..

Thanks - no more snow overnight .. but still covered with it! You too - enjoy the weekend & Friday! Cheers Hilary

Keith Davis said...

Hi Hilary
Great review.
Makes me want to read it... but it may be a bit racy for me LOL.

Sounds as though I should be buying one of these Kindles but I do love the feel of a real book.
There I go again, living in the past.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Keith .. thanks: Talli's description - but it sounds a very good read from other bloggers' review of the book .. it's good to read something racy occasionally isn't it?!

I know Kindles or ipads seem to be the rage .. I agree I'm not sure I can read a book on a screen - when I'm here screen reading rather a lot anyway ..

We'll catch up one day! Great to see you and your latest post including the TED talk - music, Shakespeare, Mandela etc .. is extremely good .. hope lots of people see it ..

Thanks - enjoy Sunday .. Hilary

Sibyl - alternaview said...

Hilary: Thanks for the book recommendation. Talli sounds like an amazing author and if you are endorsing the book, I know it must be great :)

Ann Best said...

I came over from another blog to check you out. Glad I did! I love the upbeat title of your blog.

I bought and read Talli's book (and participated in her Websplash) and loved it! The writing sparkled. It was a page turner.

In previous post, you say you had snow in the northern hemisphere. We've got the wind chill and a smattering of snow here in Virginia USA. Brrrr. Stay inside. Stay warm.
Ann Best, A Long Journey Home

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Sibyl .. good to see you - I hope so .. I'm going to be reading it soon! Others have given it the thumbs .. so there's something special there .. and the WebSplash has been fun.

Have a good week .. Hilary

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Ann .. thanks for coming on board - & for leaving a comment .. and really good to see you here. I'll be with you after I've hit the comment button here!

Fantastic you've read Talli's book .. another great endorsement .. I'm looking forward to reading it too.

We've had lots of snow and ice .. in fact it's a very unpleasant early winter .. except if you like winter wonderlands! I gather the weather has sort of spread its wings a little .. and some of you in the States have had some falls - it froze heavily overnight.

Thanks lovely seeing you and enjoy the week ahead .. Hilary

Whoa! Congratulations to Talli. I'll check it out.

I just found a link last night that you might like. This young man offers a free ten-day course on how to grow your blog. He must know what he's talking about because he has more than 1900 subscribers.

On a different note, have you met Lenny? I'd appreciate it if you could check out his blog and become a Follower. I've shared some of his talents here.

I truly hope this will help both you and Lenny. Thanks for looking at his blog. I think you will really like it. He's a great kid.

Thanks .. I'm happy with my organic growth at the moment .. and really enjoy my visitors with their great, salient comments ..

Look after yourself and good for you for promoting Lenny .. enjoy the week .. Hilary
