No Time Wasters + Beatle Meets Destiny

No Time Wasters is a collection of all the fake ads that some friends from Melbourne put in their local paper each week. Some of them are pretty funny so it's well worth a read.. the one above is an ad for a stalker. Which is funny because it's a joke but what happens when you reply as a joke and it turns out it's not a joke? This exact scenario happens in Beatle Meets Destiny by Gabrielle Williams (Penguin Australia, August 3 2009). Which should give you an indication of it's slightly quirky nature. It's a really adorable book... so more on that soon!

Beatle Meets Destiny

Imagine your name is John Lennon, only everyone calls you Beatle.

And then you meet your Dream girl and her name is Destiny McCartney.

But what if you're already with the perfect girl?

A novel about change, chance and everybody doing the wrong thing.
