The Impossibility of Blue - P.A. Jones

My background is a mixture of art, the web/IT, writing, teaching and project management, but I’m now trying to spend more of my time on things that matter to me.
I’m based in one of the home counties in the UK and still miss many of the wonders of London, where I worked for over 12 years. Some of my fiction draws on my experiences from the world of work, but whatever the setting I’m intrigued by the motivations and hidden lives of my characters.

Product description:
All's fair in love and work. That's probably the motto that Danny Edwards, a young account manager based in London, would have said he lived his life by, until a small favour for a work colleague turns his world upside down. Suddenly he finds himself lying to his fiancée; falling foul of the politics of his new job and obsessed with an unusual call girl, who's turned the rituals of love and its pleasures into a high art. As Danny's drawn further into the intrigue, he has to ask: who does he love and who's really pulling his strings?

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
The readers who’ll enjoy it most will be those who don’t mind that it doesn’t fit into a standard e-book category. It’s a mystery but there’s also an unusual love story running through it, and it’s set against the politics of the modern workplace.

Q: Why did you go indie?
Looking for a publisher for my first book, I did it the conventional way and whilst I learnt a lot and got my share of rejection letters, it didn't get my book published. Since I’ve no plans to  give up writing fiction (too many characters and stories tugging at my sleeve) e-publishing offers me the chance to find an audience for my work.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
This novella (and most of my fiction) tends to cross genres, but these are some of the writers I enjoy reading: Kate Atkinson, Raymond Chandler, Paul Auster, Peter Carey, Angela Carter, Philip Pullman and William Trevor.
