Who needs a holiday when your destiny is Written in the Stars?




In this we meet Sebastian, who ends up on a dating show called “Written In The Stars”, courtesy of his best friend and flatmate Declan.

Pot Of Gold 9halfDeclan works in the hair-and-makeup department of the matchmaking show.  From here he suggests to them that the Valentine Show should be special, and rather than just the normal guy girl contestants, it should also include a girl girl segment and also two guys.  Somehow he manages to persuade Sebastian to enter the show, and proceeds to coach him on questions, and also change his wardrobe so he dresses better, and also made him go the gym every day!!

Things don’t go according to plan when he is finally on the show…… and I have to admit that I was laughing so much while reading this….. you could just really imagine all of this happening in real life.

If you want a feel good story, then please read this, you will not regret it.




 Lily Velden lives on the east coast of Australia, her family having emigrated from Holland when she was a child.

She’s both a left and right brain person, holding qualifications in both Finance and Fine Arts. She tells her friends that her way with numbers will make her a profitable artist and writer… one day.

Lily has always had a love of language and a beautifully crafted sentence, and admits to having a fetish for collecting quotes, poems, and song lyrics. What she won’t admit to is how many notebooks she’s filled with those quotes… Her fascination carries on into her artworks where she often incorporates text. When a shoulder injury slowed down her art practice she decided to explore her love of the written word more fully and began writing. “I’ll paint my pictures with words.”

Not that she’s abandoned artmaking in its entirety—Lily collaborates on the designs for all her book covers.

There are many things Lily loves, here are just a few of the PG rated ones: a good laugh (all the better if caused by a naughty joke), the smell of freshly baked goods and mown grass, a smile from a stranger, rainbows after the rain, and witnessing a promise kept.
