Indie women’s fiction publisher Choc Lit have acquired world rights to a steamy romantic trilogy direct from the author, Debbie Flint.
Debbie Flint is a QVC Home Shopping Channel presenter. She started her career as the first girl in the hot seat on children’s BBC TV, replacing Phillip Schofield in the Broom Cupboard. Then she shared a couch with Eamonn Holmes to help launch BBC Daytime TV. Years later, she hosted her own BBC1 game show (Meet The Challenge) and has co-presented and reported on numerous other live magazine and entertainment and news shows.
Hawaiian Affair is the first novel to be released in eBook format around Christmas, with the paperback in 2015. Lyn Vernham stated on Debbie Flint’s appointment, ‘We’re delighted to have Debbie as part of the Choc Lit Team. She’s an extremely talented author and we are looking forward to introducing her novels to the mass market. Debbie’s Hawaiian trilogy will introduce a new heat level to the Choc Lit range – tastefully spicy. You could say Hot Choc Lit!’
The QVC presenter announced the news to her loyal followers on her blog stating ‘It’s something I’ve aimed for, for several years. I first met Lyn Vernham, head of Choc Lit, at the annual York Writing Festival three years ago, just after I decided to get serious about my novel-writing. Hawaiian Affair was placed in the top ten of the festival ‘best first 100 words’ contest. She galvanised me with her feedback, so I’m especially looking forward to working with the lovely lady, and the whole Choc Lit support system and community of fellow authors – it’s like a well oiled, literary machine!. ‘
