Blog Tour: Fat Girl Begone! by D.E. Haggerty (Spotlight/Tour-Wide Giveaway)

About the Book

Romantic Comedy
Self Published
Print Length: 235 pages
Publication Date: May 1, 2017

Synopsis from Goodreads:

I’m a total mess. My boyfriend dumped me – get this – because I diet too much. Not because I’m fat, mind you. Of course, this spurs me into the diet-fitness-revenge-plan of the century, which leads me to the gym and a scorching hot personal trainer. I even manage to make some cool new friends, including a millionaire if you can believe it. Things are looking up! Naturally, that’s the moment my ex decides he wants me back, the personal trainer asks me out, and my millionaire male buddy decides to throw his hat in the ring. But that’s not enough drama. No, not for me. Because I’ve also lost my job and decided to start my own business. Just call me Ms. Drama.

Warning: Bad language, bumpy roads, and embarrassing moments ahead. But there’s also more than a bit of romance and even, if we’re lucky, love. Fingers crossed.

About the Author

I grew-up reading everything I could get my grubby hands on from my mom’s Harlequin romances to Nancy Drew to Little Women. When I wasn’t flipping pages in a library book, I was penning horrendous poems, writing songs no one should ever sing, or drafting stories which have thankfully been destroyed. College and a stint in the U.S. Army came along, robbing me of free time to write and read, although on the odd occasion I did manage to sneak a book into my rucksack between rolled up socks, MRIs, t-shirts, and cold weather gear. After surviving the army experience, I went back to school and got my law degree. I jumped ship and joined the hubby in the Netherlands before the graduation ceremony could even begin. A few years into my legal career, I was exhausted, fed up, and just plain done. I quit my job and sat down to write a manuscript, which I promptly hid in the attic after returning to the law. But being a lawyer really wasn’t my thing, so I quit (again!) and went off to Germany to start a B&B. Turns out being a B&B owner wasn’t my thing either. I polished off that manuscript languishing in the attic before deciding to follow the husband to Istanbul where I decided to give the whole writer-thing a go. But ten years was too many to stay away from adopted home. I packed up again and moved to The Hague where I’m currently working on my next book. I hope I’ll always be working on my next book.

Fat girl Begone! is my eleventh book.

  1. Fat Girl Begone sounds absolutely hysterical from the blurb. Looking forward to reading it! Thanks :)

  2. It may sound "funny" but the title is a real turnoff as is the cover. Think I'll pass on this one. [and, don't get defensive anyone, I'm 60 and a very happy, healthy married BBW who just doesn't LIKE this book's premise]

    1. You are entitled to your opinion! The title was a gamble as some may find it offensive. I am a fat girl myself and the idea is the main character should stop thinking about herself as a fat girl. It's not required to be your thing. I can't even count the number of books that are big hits that turn me off. Thank goodness we're all different. Keeps things exciting.

  3. I would love to read this summer on our beach vacation!
