Read All About it!
If you want to read the first chapter of The Great Chocoplot click here and see if it tingles your appetite for more!!
For a special extra bonus, there is a deleted chapter here. It was a scene removed during the final stages of editing and it was taken out purely to keep the word count down. It’s a bit of fun and happens between Chapters 11 & 12 where Jelly and Gran experience some of the crazy rioting that happens because of the imminent Chocopocalypse. But it’s best if you don’t read it without reading the rest of the story first!!
News of The Great Chocoplot and The Chocopocalypse is spreading out across the world.
