Product description

Product Description

It should have been their trip of a lifetime. But with only days to go, Jonathan Cork is dumped by his girlfriend. Unable to change the name on the spare ticket and fast running out of time, Jonathan takes desperate measures. He advertises on eBay and social media for a travel companion with the same name as his ex. What follows is a funny, page-turning, roller-coaster ride around South America.

Reviews for The Travel Auction

‘An absolutely excellent book. It's extremely well written, with well-rounded characters and an original idea for a plot. Highly recommended!’ Goodreads Reader, 5 stars

‘What a wonderful and imaginative book. This was a really enjoyable read, so much I struggled to put it down. Some fantastic characters and storyline that left me wanting more.’ Amazon Reader, 5 stars

‘A travelogue combined with a love story and beautifully written. Very easy writing style with interesting characters and a delightful travelogue theme. Both my wife and I have read this and both thoroughly enjoyed it. No aggression, no gimmicks, just nicely written and very enjoyable. A feel-good book.’ Amazon reader, 5 stars

‘A warm read that will leave you feeling fuzzy inside, not really a fan of chick lit but this is surprisingly good! A warming rom com that would be ideal for a train or flight! Light and warming, perfect holiday read!’ Amazon reader, 5 stars

‘This isn't the usual read that I go for but my mum recommended it to me so I thought why not give it a try, and I'm so glad that I did! A truly amazing and inspirational book and definitely one of my best reads so far!’ Amazon Reader, 5 stars

A lovely, uplifting and inspiring book. I love the way the descriptions of what is around them are inserted as dialogue as this is unusual but very successful in putting the pictures in your mind. Romance, jeopardy and excitement. Highly recommended.’ Goodreads reader, 5 stars

‘This has got to be one of the best books I have read. I loved it from the first page. It's so descriptive and feel like I have done the journey with them. This is my second time reading it and like the first couldn't put it down.’ Amazon Reader, 5 stars

I absolutely loved this book, it was such fun to read and you really felt like you were on the journey with them. I have since bought it for my son who had been travelling as I thought he would enjoy it and have recommended it to all my friends and family. Best book I have read for a long time.’ Amazon Reader, 5 stars

‘This book has been sitting on my Kindle for a while now, I wasn't sure it was my type of read. How wrong was I, not my normal genre at all, but that is my bad. This book is a beautifully written story, that keeps you reading to the last page. The main characters are very believable, and the descriptions are so good you can imagine being there in your mind’s eye. A very engaging book, and very cleverly written.’ Amazon Reader, 5 stars

About the Author

Hi there. Thanks for your interest in me and my first eBook: The Travel Auction. It's both exciting and nerve-wracking to think that strangers will be reading my work and forming opinions about it's worth. Although it's a work of fiction, the book's journey through Argentina, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil is the same trip I made with my girlfriend Nicky (who is now my wife) in the autumn of 2007. I've always wanted to write, but I struggled academically in my early years. I left school at sixteen to train as an apprentice electrician and with some hard work I ended up with my own project management business. But by the age of thirty-two I became disillusioned with the soulless nature of the construction industry, so I took some time out to pursue my passion for creativity. I enrolled on a Master of Arts degree in screenwriting at Bournemouth University and since graduating I've tailored pretty much everything in my life around making time to write. The idea for The Travel Auction came to me late in the summer of 2006. I'd paid for two airline tickets to visit a friend in Qatar, but found myself minus a girlfriend to accompany me. I tried to change the name on the spare ticket, but it was too near the departure date and the travel company wouldn't offer a refund. It struck me that I might have an interesting premise for a book or film script. When I'm not writing or working at several quirky jobs to pay the bills, I like to relax by competing in the high adrenalin sport of Australian surf boat racing. Thanks for looking me up, I hope you enjoy reading my book. Please consider writing a review - good, bad or indifferent, it's always useful to know what readers think.
