Happy Spring!!!

It is finally spring and I am kicking off the season in style with my spot on the Stay Mad Sweetheart Blog Tour. As always organised and hosted by The Write Reads and The Folio Society.

I am going to really quickly take some time before my spotlight on this wonderful book (life got a bit mad so review pending) to thank Dave The Write Reads  for not only having me on another tour but just all round being the most awesome person ever!

Data scientist Laura prefers the company of her books to the real world – let alone that cesspit online. But when her best friend Emily becomes the victim of horrific cyberbullying, she makes it her all-engulfing mission to track down the worst culprits.

Petite corporate-financier Suki is about to outshine the stupid boys at her firm: she’s leading the acquisition of Edinburgh’s most exciting start-up. If only she could get its brilliant but distracted co-founder Laura to engage.

Event planner Claire is left to salvage the start-up’s annual conference after her colleague Emily fails to return to work. She’s determined to get a promotion out of it, but her boss isn’t playing ball.

As the women’s paths intertwine, the insidious discrimination they each face comes too light. Emboldened by Emily’s tragic experience, they join forces to plot the downfall of all those who’ve wronged them. But with emotions running high, will the punishments fit the crimes?

A pacy and suspenseful novel with its feet firmly in the #MeToo era. 9 to 5 meets Suits with a dash of Black Mirror.

About the author:

Heleen Kist Author Profile image

Throughout her life, Heleen Kist has been fondled, patronized, and ordered to smile by random men. So she wrote ‘Stay Mad, Sweetheart’, a feminist tale of justice, published November 2019. Whilst her professional knowledge of technology start-ups fed the novel’s setting, its theme of insidious harassment and discrimination required no research: it is familiar to all women.

Heleen was chosen as an up-and-coming new author at Bloody Scotland 2018. Her first novel, ‘In Servitude’ won the silver medal for Best European Fiction at the Independent Publishers Book Awards in the USA and was shortlisted for The Selfies awarded at London Book Fair.

A Dutch strategy consultant living in Glasgow and married to a Scotsman, she’s raising their son to be a good man and their daughter to kick ass.

Heleen hopes you enjoy her writing and would love to hear from you.
