How would you feel if, one day, you discover that everything you thought you knew about your family was a fabrication? Your mother wasn’t your mother, your father was a liar and your whole upbringing was a sham.
Confronted with this exact situation, Dave Fazackerley doesn’t feel great. It doesn’t help that he has just buried the woman he thought of as his mother. Or that his wife, his one true soulmate, recently jumped into bed with a librarian. Even his band, his only escape from reality, is going through a rough patch.
How will Dave respond? Will he discover the truth about his family? Will his band ever play a gig again? More importantly, can Dave entice his wife back from the arms of the book-dork or will he take a chance on a new love?
Another one of those days today when I have to just tell you about a book rather than telling you how much I enjoyed it – sadly, I just couldn’t squeeze it into my reading pile. Six Lies by Ben Adams was published by Silverwood Books on 23rd November and is available through Amazon in the UK and US. There are already some great reviews – best of luck with it Ben!
Fancy winning an e-copy? With thanks to Ben and tour organisers Brook Cottage Books, here’s the rafflecopter for entry:

Like a lot of people, Ben went to school, then college and eventually grew up and got a responsible job, a house and a family. And then his mid-life crisis kicked in.
Realising that life was in danger of becoming all too serious, Ben started writing. Not in the way that Forrest Gump started running, but at least he started. He wrote on steamed up mirrors in the bathroom to make his children smile. Eventually he graduated to making up stories to entertain his kids at bedtime.
For some reason, his boys didn’t seem interested in his tales of every-day life, relationships, family, trauma, farce and the occasional bit of debauchery. They preferred JK someone or other.
Following his short-lived career as a children’s author, Ben now concentrates on writing stories for grown-ups. He writes for people who have lived, loved, worked, strived and suffered – people like him. People like you.
Ben lives in southwest London with his two boys and Albus, his dog.
Ben has a blog and author website, and you can follow him on Twitter, Facebook and Goodreads.
