Product Description


Terry Tyler

YOU WISH was the winner of the "Best Chick Lit/Women's Lit" in the eFestival of Words 2013.

Do we control our own destiny - or might it be determined by fate,
coincidence, luck...or even magic?

Ruth, an amateur psychic with a husband who smokes cannabis for breakfast, is
haunted by a tragic event from her teenage years which, she suspects, was the
result of a wish she made on an allegedly enchanted stone. Too embarrassed to
admit her fears, she keeps her secret to herself for twenty-five years.

Petra is the perennial singleton amongst her friends, unable, she thinks, to
fall in love. She comes across the stone at a Psychic Fair and makes a wish,
just for fun. As the wish begins to come true she wishes she had chosen her
words with more care.

Spoilt, weight-obsessed Sarah wants nothing more than to be "size zero". As
her life spirals downwards into the seedy world of drug abuse and addiction, she
remembers the day at the Psychic Fair when she wished for her heart's desire.

When Ruth learns of the fates of Petra and Sarah she is forced to confront her
guilt and discover the truth about the Wishing Stone...

Terry Tyler's debut novel is a quirky contemporary drama exploring the themes
of family affairs, infidelity and guilt, incorporating jealousy, drug abuse and the
obsession of a Facebook stalker, against a backdrop of secrets and superstition.

More About the Author

Terry lives in the north of England with her husband, and has published nine books on Amazon. Readers say she has created her own genre, which lies somewhere in the area of contemporary drama and romantic suspense, with the occasional bit of rock fiction thrown in.

A light, summer novella, 'Round and Round' is her latest release; 'Kings and Queens' is her latest of seven full length novels, and is a modern day re-telling of the story of Henry VIII and his six wives. A sequel is in progress and is expected to be available by January or February of 2015.

Terry has a blog on which she writes about anything she feels like, and also writes for the UK Arts Directory on a weekly basis about self-publishing. Both blogs are widely read. She is an active Twitter user, and suspects that if it wasn't for this site she might be about to publish her twelfth book, rather than her tenth...

5.0 out of 5 stars "I really COULDN'T put it down!" 25 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Call me a cynic, but whenever I see a bunch of reviews saying "I couldn't put it down!" I tend to think the author has a large family. I came across this book while browsing on Amazon and thought I'd take a punt. What a great surprise. It's beautifully written - a fast, smooth read with a compelling storyline, and engaging characters. Download it now and you'll see what I mean. But be warned: you probably won't be able to put it down! Terry Tyler is definitely an author to watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected - but an addictive read. 22 Jun 2012
By Debbie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I needed a lot of perseverance with this book. Not because it wasn't good, but because it mysteriously deleted itself from my kindle after I'd read the first chapter! Amazon wouldn't let me download it again and it took me a while to find a backed-up copy to drag-and-drop back onto the kindle...

But worth the effort. This book surprised me because it breaks all the "rules" of writing. Lots of telling, lots of exposition and an unusual structure for a novel. But I really enjoyed it. Excellent writing and an ability to get right under the skin of the characters. This was all very believable stuff and very addictive reading. Sometimes I wanted to yell at the characters, which is always a sign of a good book.

And I really wasn't sure how it would end. All through, we never quite know - is there magic involved here, or not? Are we really responsible for our own actions or are their higher powers at work? A clever resolution to a great novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Wish 11 Jan 2012
By Shiraz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was gripped from the very start and can't remember the last time I read a book so quickly! Everything else I want to say has been written in the previous reviews especially being able to relate to many of the characters in one way or another. I already have your new novel "Nobody's Fault" on Kindle and can't wait to read that too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ripping Yarn 11 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Just got a Kindle in my Christmas stocking and took the plunge with this offering by Terry Tyler. What a good choice! It held my interest from beginning to end with a very credible plot. The author expertly jogs the teenage memories of those of us of a certain age with lots of clever references to the fashions and fads of our yesterdays. I found myself thinking about the book between sessions and looking forward to the next read which surely is the sign of a ripping yarn. I'll certainly be reading the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Believable 11 Aug 2013
By Kerry B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With a believable plot and characters you feel you know I will definitely recommend this book. Everyone can relate to at least one of the characters and, lets face it, we've all had a few "I wish" moments. "Be careful what you wish for" has never been more relevant! A wonderful, beleivable read.
