We have some exciting news! Catherine Ryan Howard, author of travel memoir Mousetrapped (and more recently, self-publishing guide Self Printed), has revealed the details of her next book! This time, Catherine has crossed over to the world of fiction for upcoming novel Results Not Typical, which will be published in 2011. We can't wait!
Through their Ultimate Weight Loss Diet Solution Zone System, Slimmit International Global Incorporated claim they're making the world a more attractive place one fatty at a time. Their slogans "Where You're Fat and We Know It!" and "Where the Fat IS Your Fault!" are recognised around the globe, the counter in the lobby says five million slimmed and their share price is as high as their energy levels. But today the theft of their latest revolutionary product, Lipid Loser, will threaten to expose the real secret behind Slimmit's success...
As Director of Security, hunky Aaron Green is held responsible and threatened with his job. Spying an opportunity to get back into Aaron's pants, Marianne Brand, head of Slimming Operations, offers to help him track down the intruder - but what she's really hoping to find is her missing Much, Much More Muffin, a secret prototype she believes the intruder ate. Meanwhile Slimmit CEO Nicola Darcy struggles to stay conscious in the three layers of constricting underwear she needs to hide her new muffin top, while her daughter Emmy - deemed "unacceptably beyond corporate Appearance Policy parameters" - pushes paper in Slimmit's basement and dreams of a skinny life, one she hopes her secret membership of Fat Club, Slimmit's main competitor, will eventually bring her.
The race is on to retrieve the Lipid Loser and save Slimmit from total disaster. If their secrets get out, their competitors will put them out of business. If the government finds out, they'll all go to jail. And if their clients find out... Well, as Slimmit's Slimming Specialists know all too well, there's only one thing worse than a hungry, sugar-crazed, carb addict - an angry one.
Will the secret behind Slimmit's success survive the day, or will their long-suffering slimmers finally discover the truth?
