Joyfully Reviewed is excited to welcome Author Chloe Thurlow’s latest release,

KATIE IN LOVEkatieinlove

Katie Boyd has nothing in common with Tom Bridge, the volunteer doctor she meets at a party – except in bed she finds a passion to match her own. Tom is intense, puzzling, a man who cares about others and compels Katie to question her own life drifting through the hip clubs and London party scene.

When Tom returns to his post in a Sri Lanka orphanage, Katie isn’t sure if their passion was lit by its brevity, or if love, unexpected and not entirely wanted, has edged its way into her life. Should she go back to being who she always was? Or follow Tom into the unknown?

Katie in Love is a compelling erotic-romance that will grip readers as they follow Katie’s journey to an ending they may have expected – but not in the way they expected it.

Brilliantly written and coolly self-aware, Chloe Thurlow was described by KM Dylan on Amazon as “…the Anaïs Nin of our times.” With Katie in Love  – her sixth novel – Thurlow reveals a writer at the height of her powers.

Katie in Love: Painting by Numbers

I have always thought of writers as right-brained artists inspired by daydreams and fantasy. When I finished Katie in Love, my new novel, it dawned on me that writing is a left-hemisphere calling: planning, logic, a painting by numbers.

Storytelling is governed by 3 acts, and you will be hard-pressed to find a great novel or movie that falls outside this paradigm:

  • the present; normal life moving towards a point of crisis;
  • overcoming that crisis and reaching new understandings culminating in a major turn of events;
  • resolution, often birth (or rebirth), marriage (or divorce) or death, literal, as in dying, or a major change that solves the initial crisis ie: suicidal housewife overcomes all difficulties to become an opera singer and saves her marriage.

All stories follow this 3-part formula: boy meets girl, boy and girl are torn apart, boy and girl resolve the problem – Romeo and Juliet in death; Jane Austin’s characters in marriage; Diane Keaton becomes a mom in Baby Boom.

The Rule of 3 applies to granting wishes in fairy tales; the mountain climber reaches the summit the third time he sets out, usually in the worst of all conditions; Goldilocks in the house of the Three Bears finds a comfortable bed on the third attempt.

Scenes that progress a story should go through the same sequence: conflict, action to resolve the conflict, resolution of conflict, creating a fleeting equilibrium that will turn again to conflict – the oil and essence of  fiction.

Katie in Love is a romance, threaded through with glints of erotica. It explores the theory of everything I have ever thought about, and what I am thinking about now, in a world where there is danger everywhere and even falling in love seems risky and perilous.

Writing a new novel takes you from crisis to crisis until you come to the end of the third act and publication feels like reincarnation. Katie in Love is my painting by numbers: 13 months to write, it contains 80,000 words and fits 250 pages in the 9×6 format.

The paperback is matt-finish and silky to the touch, the last detail grabbed from the right-hemisphere because our brains have a revolving door connecting the two sides and writers are poets as well as mathematicians.

chloe thurlow

Chloe Thurlow started writing erotica after being seduced by her tutor at Cambridge. She lives in East London, sometimes Barcelona, works periodically as a teacher, occasionally as a waitress at corporate events where masters of the universe drink buckets of champagne and fall over. She hates bankers. Before writing Katie in Love, Chloe penned five novels she grandly calls ‘The Girl Quintet’ – The Secret Life of Girls, A Girl’s Adventure, Trade Girl, The Gift of Girls and Being A Girl.
