Fracking Up – now in paperback

Fracking Up, the new novel by’s editor Tanya Jones, is now available in paperback from Amazon.  It tells the story of a fictional European island faced with shale gas extraction and of what happens when the book’s heroine,  Jenny, and her friends start campaigning on the issue.  It’s not a heavy book, in any sense; it was described on Amazon as “An enjoyable romance with a serious centre and lots of humour along the way” but we hope that it will help a wider audience to appreciate the likely effects of fracking in populated areas and beautiful landscapes.  Tanya is happy to talk about the novel to book groups or at other events – contact her at
