How to Dump Your Boyfriend in the Men’s Room (And Other Short Stories)
by Sibel Hodge
Welcome to My World...

I'm an author of chick lit romances and mysteries. In my spare time I'm Wonder Woman! My world is sometimes wacky, quirky, and very accident-prone.

This is a collection of five humorous short stories - what I like to call true fiction. Some are true, some are fiction, and some are a mixture of both. I guess you have to decide which is which!

I often get asked if I'm like any of my characters in my novels, and I have to groan and say, yes. When you read these stories you'll realize how, and a lot of them have inspired scenes in my novels, although names have been omitted or changed to protect me against lawsuits!

Are you ready to find out "how to dump your boyfriend in the men's toilets", why "yoga is bad for your house", what the "S-Word has to do with your lady garden", why you need to "follow that goat", and whether "kismet" does really exist?

(Short stories total 6,500 words. Includes bonus material and chapters from my novels, Fourteen Days Later, My Perfect Wedding, The Fashion Police, and Be Careful What You Wish For)
Synopsis found on Goodreads

For your very own copy, go to Smashwords at and enter code: WQ97R.

Sibel Hodge first two book series Fourteen Days Later, My Perfect Wedding, were described as a cross between Bridget Jones and My Big Fat Greek Wedding. The Fashion Police and Be Careful What You Wish For have been likened to the popular Stephanie Plum bounty hunter adventure series, with Sibel Hodge’s on femme fatale, Amber Fox. Having taken on many varied roles throughout her life already, I imagine Sibel Hodge has an almost limitless pool of resources to pull fromo when creating her characters and stories. Her biography on lists her career accomplishments as including being a qualified personal trainer and sports and massage therapist; she works as a freelance writer on fitness and sports topics; and finally, prior to this writing/fitness role, she worked at the Hertfordshire Constabulary!

You may have noticed her e-books on Goodreads or at the Giveaways page during International Chick Lit Month with their eye catching, beautiful, unique and colorful images (see throughout post); so what are you waiting for!? Go out and get her latest at Smashwords! FREE!

Happy Fourth of July, Everyone!
