Nottingham Author’s Debut Tops the Kindle Charts

Every now and then, I like to send my local press some news about what I’m up to and as we are only a few days away from Christmas and sales of Conditional Love are exceeding my expectations, I sent a short press release out today:

Nottingham Author’s Debut Tops the Kindle Charts


Self-published author, Cathy Bramley from Lambley launched her debut romantic comedy in October in the Lambley village phone box. Now the book Conditional Love is in the top ten of three Amazon charts and has sold copies across the world including India, America and Canada.

‘To be topping the Kindle charts at Christmas is a dream come true!’ says Cathy. ‘But more than anything, I’m so pleased that people are enjoying my first book. I’ve had emails and tweets from readers all over the world, telling me how much they liked Conditional Love and asking me to write a sequel!’

Cathy chose self-publishing as a way to launch her writing career in order to build a readership and a profile to take to a prospective agent: ‘As much as I have enjoyed being in control of the whole process of producing and marketing a novel, I am hoping to secure representation and a publishing deal for my second book which I have just completed.’


Conditional Love is a romantic comedy set in Nottingham about Sophie Stone, a serial procrastinator who is forced into action when her boyfriend dumps her on Valentine’s day and she receives a life-changing inheritance with a condition attached.

Conditional Love is available for Kindle or in paperback on Amazon, in Waterstones, Bridlesmith Gate or The Bookcase in Lowdham.


I’ll post back here if any of the above copy gets used!
