Sisi & Sonia is a first time novel by Nic Penrake, published by YouWriteOn/Legend Press. The publisher is funded largely by the Arts Council, UK. Their remit has been to flush out new talent and provide selected authors with a distribution deal on almost all the major booksellers’ websites such as amazon.com, waterstones.com, whsmith.com barnesandnoble.com. Already, through facebook groups, the book is being talked about and recommended. What the author now needs is a conventional publisher to come in and boost the word of mouth by giving the book some physical presence in bookstores. Then we really are talking.
As Trainspotting took an unflinching look at the mad world of heroin addiction, Sisi & Sonia pulls no punches when it comes to the sexually obsessed world of one middle class punter and an escort girl from Thailand. Indeed, there are very few books on the market that can match Sisi & Sonia for its combination of character-driven story telling and sexually-charged thriller writing. This is a page-turner with characters you remember once you close the back cover. And if you were in any doubts as to the gathering interest for the novel, you might take a read of the 5 star reviews on amazon.co.uk. And if you get tired of reading on-screen, you can always try the book itself through any of the above-listed online stores.
