Each chapter of The Wedding Date begins with a text message between Delilah and a friend or family member. The texts relate to the chapter in some way and seem to be popular with the reviews so far.
The idea of using text messages came from Delilah's blog (which I set up for fun before writing the book to get to know her). I ended each blog post with an email exchange and I loved writing them so I decided to include them in the book.
As the various drafts and revisions changed chapters and storylines, some of the text messages needed to be altered or were removed and replaced so I've rescued them from the cutting room floor and I'm going to share them here!
If, like me, you like reading funny text messages, I've set up a Pinterest board where I've started to pin my favourites. You can have a look here
About The Book
Delilah James, singleton and smoothie-addict, has six months to find a date for her oldest friend’s wedding. Oh, and to prove to her ex, best man Ben, that she has totally moved on since he dumped her out-of-the-blue nine months, eight days and seventeen hours ago…
So, with her two BFFs playing Cupid, Delilah launches herself into the high-tech, fast-paced and frankly terrifying world of dating. Luckily there’s the hot new guy at work, Adam Sinclair, to practice her flirting on – even if, as a colleague, he’s strictly off-limits!
Yet time’s running out and date after disastrous date forces Delilah to tell a little white lie – and invent a fake boyfriend! But will her secret crush on Adam ruin everything? Does she even care about Ben anymore? And is it too late to untangle her web of lies and take a real date to the wedding…?
