Julie Shackman’s ‘Hero or Zero’ Guest Post


Julie Shackman has recently had her second book published.


Book Blurb 

When single mum Chloe Jones wins a magazine competition to have TV heartthrob Ethan Blake live with her for a month, she thinks her dreams have come true. And the presence of the handsome star in her home and small Scottish town certainly causes a stir. But when Chloe begins to see his true colours, will she find the courage to face him, and admit where her heart truly lies? 


Julie has kindly done a guest post for my blog.  I hope you enjoy reading it.


Chloe’s Holding Out For Her Hero….

By Julie Shackman

Has your heart raced at the thought of meeting your favourite actor/singer/writer?!

Have you ever imagined what your Hero is like in real life? If they would match up to your expectations?

This is exactly what my new romcom “Hero or Zero” is all about.

Chloe Jones is a single parent to her gorgeous little boy Danny. She loves him to bits but there’s another man who makes her heart leap for entirely different reasons – handsome TV actor Ethan Blake.

She has followed his career avidly for four years and when Chloe is given the opportunity to spend time with Ethan, she grabs this once-in-a-lifetime chance with both hands.

But what is it they say? You should never meet your Hero?

Chloe is a romantic at heart; a dedicated Mum and hard-working young woman. In her mind, Ethan is every bit as brave and dashing as he appears on her TV screen….

But is he?

I think all of us have a part of Chloe inside us. A passionate, dreamy side which wants to be swept along by romance.

Is Ethan Blake the man for her? Does he indeed deserve her?

Perhaps the real-life heroes are far closer to home than we think….!



Author Bio

I trained as a journalist but writing romance has always been a dream of mine. When I’ve not got my head in a book or drafting one, I write verses and captions for greetings card companies. Writing at home seems to be incredibly difficult for me – I usually require coffee, music and noise.

My second romcom, “Hero or Zero” has just been released. “Rock My World” was my debut romcom. I’m married, have two sons and live in Scotland.



‘Hero or Zero is available to buy on Amazon:-
