After the Break-Up

16 February 2019

Carrie Sutton’s novel After the Break-Up: A Girl’s Guide will be available as an audiobook this May. With the tag line, ‘My year of good friends, bad dates and new underwear’, After the Break-Up is a guide to life, love and loss – perfect for anyone with the blues after Valentine’s Day.

Due for release in May 2019, Carrie Sutton, a professional actress who has worked extensively in theatre, will narrate her novel After the Break-Up as a new audiobook, originally published by Big Finish on eBook and paperback in October 2010.

What do you do when the One turns out not to be the One after all? When your dream home is snatched away from you, unfinished Schreiber kitchen units and all, and your dog is sent to live with your parents? When you suddenly have to find a flatmate, a way to pay the rent, a reason to keep going and maybe… ultimately… a new boyfriend?

Sharp, funny and hugely entertaining, Carrie Sutton charts her life in the year following the Big Break-Up. The bad dates… the good friends… the times when you think you can’t go on and the moment when you realise that you are finally okay on your own.

If you’ve just experienced a Big Break-Up and need some cheering up, a bit of friendly advice and a few practical tips – this is the book for you! Reading this book is like talking to your best friend over a large glass of wine. Uplifting, truthful and wise. As a feel-good remedy, it does everything except order you a cab home at the end of the evening!

Producer Xanna Eve Chown told us more “I'm really pleased that 'After the Break Up' is going to be available as an audiobook. Re-visiting it in the studio reminded me what a lovely, friendly book this is, full of hilarious anecdotes as well as useful advice for the broken hearted - and a chocolate recipe! It was great to catch up with Carrie too - she is such fun, and brings a lot of life and humour to the reading.”

Author and narrator Carrie Sutton told us more, "I loved recording this. It was so much fun to get in the studio and put my voice to my work. It felt very natural as it’s, of course, paced just right for me - how I think and phrase things… and, of course, I knew it so well! It was very interesting reading it all again, reliving it almost. I thought to myself, "I could‘ve used some of this advice of mine at times" which is hilarous.

"It was great to find I still believed in what I’d said, that it was still relevant and had a place with something unique to offer… that I could help people through - with a laugh, with a shoulder to cry on, with the knowledge that it‘s not just them alone in it. "

Reviews online for After the Break-Up: 5/5 “I can honestly say that it has changed my life. As I was turning the pages there were so many similarities and I wasn't even married yet (just engaged) and it got me thinking 'am I engaged for the sake of being engaged, because I'm at the age where one should be?’” Amazon

5/5 “Just finished reading Carrie Sutton's book and its fabulous… even 10 months after my break-up its helped me. Its funny, spoken from the heart and tells you everything you need to know!!! It's made me realise just how much I have moved on, I am a stronger and happier person and now I know I am not the only one who felt like I did!!! Carrie writes in such a wonderful way.” Amazon

“Very Sex and the City. Put heart and humour into something really difficult. Took the weight off my shoulders.” Goodreads
