New Release Alert!!

Matt Dunn – Pug Actually


Matt Dunn is a romantic comedy novelist from Margate who now lives in London. Previously, Matt has worked as a professional lifeguard, fitness equipment salesman, and an I.T. headhunter who had great success in re-writing peoples’ CVs which made Matt consider his talent for fiction was the way forward!!

As well as fourteen novels including The Ex-Boyfriend’s Handbook and A Day at the Office, Matt has written articles for The Times, Guardian, and The Sun, along with a number of magazines including Cosmopolitan, Company, Elle, and Glamour.

Last month, Matt Dunn released a quirky new comedy novel, Pug Actually – about a pug called Doug!



Loyal rescue pug Doug wants his adoring owner Julie to find unconditional love and happiness – and he knows she won’t find either in the arms of Luke, her married boss.

Doug is terrified that Julie will become a lonely cat-lover if she stays single too long, but he can’t let her fall for any more of Luke’s empty promises. Julie needs to move on – and Doug is convinced that Tom, a newly divorced V-E-T, is perfect for her (despite his questionable occupation).

There’s just one problem: Julie and Tom can’t stand each other. Doug doesn’t quite understand the quirks and complexities of human relationships, but he won’t let that get in the way of his mission to bring Tom and Julie together. After all, being a ‘rescue’ works both ways…
