Smorgasbord Bookshelf – New Book on the Shelves – #SocialMedia #Cyberbullying – The Bubble Reputation – Alex Craigie

Delighted to share the latest release by Alex Craigie – a must read for all of us on social media – The Bubble Reputation

About the book

If you want to destroy someone’s reputation, social media provides the perfect tool.

Emmie Hobson, children’s author and TV presenter, is riding high on a wave of popularity when an unscrupulous newspaper editor, desperate for a scoop, brings Emmie’s world crashing down.

Social media picks up the baton and a terrifying backlash of hate and abuse is unleashed. Threats are made and there are those, inflamed by the rhetoric, prepared to take the law into their own hands.

One of the early reviews for the book

SuzM 5.0 out of 5 stars A little gem that draws blood.  Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 17 October 2022

This is a little gem with very hard sharp edges. Emmie Hobson is everyone’s favourite children’s author and TV presenter, and apart from a troubled sister, her life is golden. Which of course makes her ideal fodder for a sleazy newspaper in search of a good smear. And then social media is unleashed. It’s one of those stories that leaves me grinding my teeth with frustration on behalf of the protagonist and the seeming impossibility of her being able to escape the tide of unjustified hate. A very satisfying ending saved me a trip to the dentist. It would be reassuring if this were all pure fiction, but it is so discomfortingly believable.

About Alex Craigie

Alex Craigie is the pen name of Trish Power.

Trish was ten when her first play was performed at school. It was in rhyming couplets and written in pencil in a book with imperial weights and measures printed on the back.

When her children were young, she wrote short stories for magazines before returning to the teaching job that she loved.

Trish has had three books published under the pen name of Alex Craigie. The first two books cross genre boundaries and feature elements of romance, thriller and suspense against a backdrop of social issues. Someone Close to Home highlights the problems affecting care homes while Acts of Convenience has issues concerning the health service at its heart. Her third book. Means to Deceive, is a psychological thriller.

Someone Close to Home has won a Chill with a Book award and a Chill with the Book of the Month award. In 2019 it was one of the top ten bestsellers in its category on Amazon.

  2. Having already read two of Trish’s novels, I’d probably be on board even if I didn’t find the plot stimulating. In this case, I love that she’s writing a novella about an increasing problem. How do we get our reputation back when it gets smeared through no fault of our own?

  4. All of Alex’s books are a treat, so I am sure to download this. The premise is so spot on for today’s world. The media here are disliked by a whopping percentage of the population but they don’t seem to care and keep on lying… they live only in their heads.

  6. Sally, thank you so much for showcasing my book today. I hope you know how much I appreciate your generosity and support. The trouble you take to promote our work must be considerable, but you do so good-naturedly and professionally despite having projects of your own that need your time, and being busy getting your house ready to sell. There is no greater gift someone can give than their precious time. ♥♥
