 Fourteen Days Later

(romantic comedy)

Ebook version

 Paperback version

When accident-prone Helen Grey finds a thong stuffed into the pocket of her boyfriend’s best work trousers, it’s time for her to move on. His excuse that he needed to dust the photocopier and just thought that it was a rag sounds like a lame excuse.

Helen’s life is propelled in an unexpected direction after her best friend, Ayshe, sets her a fourteen-day, life-changing challenge. Helen receives a task everyday which she must complete without question. The tasks are designed to build her confidence and boost her self-esteem but all they seem to do is push her closer to Ayshe’s brother, Kalem.

How will Kalem and Helen get together when she’s too foolish to realize that she loves him? How can he fall for her when he is too busy falling prey to her mishaps and too in love with his own perfect girlfriend? How will Kalem’s Turkish Cypriot family react when they find out?

Is it really possible to change your life in fourteen days?

How to Dump Your Boyfriend in the Men's Room (and other short stories)

Ebook version

 

 Welcome to My World…


I’m an author of chick lit romances and mysteries. In my spare time I’m Wonder Woman! My world is sometimes wacky, quirky, and very accident-prone. 

This is a collection of five humorous short stories – what I like to call true fiction. Some are true, some are fiction, and some are a mixture of both. I guess you have to decide which is which!

I often get asked if I’m like any of my characters in my novels, and I have to groan and say, yes. When you read these stories you’ll realize how, and a lot of them have inspired scenes in my novels, although names have been omitted or changed to protect me against lawsuits!

Are you ready to find out “how to dump your boyfriend in the men’s toilets”, why “yoga is bad for your house”, what the “S-Word has to do with your lady garden”, why you need to “follow that goat”, and whether “kismet” does really exist?

(Short stories total 6,500 words. Includes bonus material and chapters from my novels, Fourteen Days Later, My Perfect Wedding, The Fashion Police, and Be Careful What You Wish For)

Praise for How to Dump Your Boyfriend in the Men's Room (and other short stories)

"Most of these stories are laugh out loud funny, written by a terrific writer who is always capable of engaging her audience.The last story is touching and made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. Great job Sibel, can't wait to read more of your work." -- Mel Comley, author of Impeding Justice.

"Sibel Hodge does it again! This ebook was awesome. If you are into chick lit and want to read something easy, not to long and funny read then this is a awesome little ebook. This is a great read and I promise you will enjoy this and laugh out loud a few times. I know I did" -- Geeky Girl Reviews
