MY LIFE IN LIPPY AND LEOPARD PRINT
DJ Kirkby has a new novel out today called My Dream of You (Punked Books), the follow up to 2010’s Without Alice.
In this digital release, on a beautiful summer’s day Betty lets love carry her a step too far. That exquisite sun dappled afternoon becomes one of her best memories but also the catalyst for the worst experience of her life. Now elderly, Betty has been running from her past since she was a teenager, and it’s about to catch up with her. Will the experience be as awful as she fears or wonderful beyond imagining?
