About C H Clepitt

C H Clepitt has a Master’s Degree in English Literature from the University of the West of England. As her Bachelor’s Degree was in Drama, and her Master’s Dissertation focused on little known 18th Century playwright Susannah Centlivre, Clepitt’s novels are extremely dialogue driven, and it has often been observed that they would translate well to the screen.

Since graduating in 2007, she gained experience in community and music journalism, before establishing satirical news website, Newsnibbles in 2010. In 2011 she published her book, A Reason to Stay, which follows the adventures of disillusioned retail manager, Stephen, as he is thrust into village life and the world of AmDram. Clepitt’s feminist fantasy, The Book of Abisan not only crosses worlds, but confuses genres, and has been described as a crime drama with magic. She has often said that she doesn’t like the way that choosing a genre forces you to put your book into a specific little box, and instead she prefers to distort the readers’ expectations and keep them guessing. Her 2016 work, I Wore Heels to the Apocalypse does just that, as just like the characters, the readers won’t know what’s going on in this laugh out loud satirical scifi.

Review by: Simon Leonard on Nov. 2, 2018 :
This book follows on directly from I Wore Heels to the Apocalypse and follows Kerry, her on/off girlfriend Sam, who is a spy, Tyrone, Kerry’s best friend, Peter, another spy, who was Sam’s Boyfriend prior to the apocalypse, and of course a talking badger.

I personally couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book and when I was given the opportunity to read an advanced copy to review it for my blog I literally jumped at the chance.

The story starts a bit slower than I Wore Heels did but that doesn’t detract from the story at all as once it does get going it doesn’t stop until the end. The character’s were all expanded on nicely in a way that didn’t really happen in the first book.

Just like the previous book you can’t take this one too seriously, even with the talking badger in it there are lots of tongue in cheek story and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I really liked how each chapter begins with a cartoon strip which helps the story along in a nice and unique way.

The story took some unexpected turns and twists throughout the book and I really liked the journey I was taken on whilst reading the book. I found it very hard to put down as the story line kept me intrigued and making me to want to read more each time I picked it up.

Overall this is a brilliant book, which I give 5 stars to.

Highly Enjoyable
Recap: Kerry is trying to get on with her life after the apocalypse, which hardly anyone else seems to remember, but she is pulled into her girlfriend Sam's world of espionage and intrigue. Together with her spirit guide badger, Kerry gains her very own super powers and sets out to save the day!

Review: This is the sequel to I Wore Heels To The Apocalypse which I admit I have not yet read however it is firmly on my TBR pile! A fast paced novel with amusing scenarios and believable character interplay. Cape looks at the adjustment needed to deal with having super powers, as well as how delicate relationships can be. Having a badger spirit guide is genius. I was fortunate enough to be involved with the beta reading stage of this novel and I know how much blood, sweat and tears were poured into this book, a true labour of love. What makes Cape stand out from the crowd is the inclusion of a secondary storyline told through comic strips. It keeps you guessing about what will happen next and how the storylines are connected.

Review by: Natasja Hellenthal on Sep. 30, 2018 :
This sequel is an amusing fast-paced read with likable characters. You get thrown into the story straight away. It's dialogue driven and focused on the interpersonal relationships. I enjoyed reading this story even though it's a new genre for me. Nothing is to be taken too seriously and it's a fun and light distraction from real-life.
Recommended.
