I can’t believe I’m writing this, but I’ve written a book called On The Money, published Bonnier Books. Bloody hell – this means I can call myself an author! This is something I’ve always dreamed about doing but never thought it would actually happen. If you want to pre-order it, here’s how you can buy it. That said, it will be in all good book shops (I’ve always wanted to say that!).
It’s a big reason I’ve neglected this blog for so long – that and a new baby that won’t let me have a second to myself. I got the email from the publishers offering me a book deal literally a couple of weeks before giving birth, so have been typing away (at times delriously with tiredness) whenever the baby slept whilst on maternity leave.
When I used to imagine writing a book, I saw myself in a farmhouse in Italy with a glass of wine, bashing away on a typewriter while handsome locals would drop by delivering cheese – somewhat like Colin Firth’s character in Love Actually.
However, the reality was late nights in my childhood bedroom in my parent’s house, eating crisps while being covered in sick! Loved it though.
What’s On the Money about?
Well, it’s about money. Duh! More specifically, On The Money is a guide on how you can build the kind of life you want. I cover things from everything you should know about bank accounts, mortgages, investing, mental health and money, etc.
It’s not just me yapping away at you, but it’s more of a *fun* (hopefully), interactive book where we work out your goals and what you want to achieve, and I tell you how to get there.
I’m really bloody nervous about releasing it (I feel sick!), but I threw my heart and soul into it and I’m pretty confident that if you follow the tips etc, you’re going to get a lot out of it.
So if you do fancy buying it, I’d love that – and if you like my work and would be up for spreading the word, It would mean a lot to me if you could share on Twitter/Facebook etc. Here’s a link – https://smarturl.it/onthemoney
