A Guided Tour of My Bookshelf!

Welcome to the guided tour of my bookshelf!

Sometimes I enjoy being nosy. I think everyone does. People like to watch room tours, daily videos of people’s lives and all sorts on YouTube, and one thing that I like to watch and read is bookshelf tours. I just love knowing which books people read, how many they own, and how they organise them. In this post, I’m going to jump on this bandwagon and give you a guided tour of my bookshelves. Enjoy!

Welcome to the brand new WonderfullyBookish!

Welcome to the brand new WonderfullyBookish!

It’s finally here – after weeks of working solidly to make it work, the brand new WonderfullyBookish is live!

For a while now my blog has become more than just a hobby; it’s what I spend the majority of my time doing. Reading books, planning and writing posts and working with publishers to get brand new content has become my life and it’s what I enjoy doing more than anything.

Also, amazingly, my blog has got me a job! A couple of weeks ago Jo from VA agency Taskerly sent me a message and asked if I’d like to work with her to become a self-employed Virtual Assistant and I was over the moon. If you read the About page of my old blog you’ll know that I said it was my dream job to be a Virtual Assistant. Now I’m actually doing that as a job and it feels surreal – I love it!

What now?

The past couple of weeks my focus has been on getting this site up and running and now that it’s live, my focus can be blogging again. I can’t wait to start getting back into it and coming up with some brand new post ideas. Obviously, this site is brand new so if you spot any errors or anything not working as it should that I may have missed, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

Back to regular blogging!

GUEST POST: Why DID I write a book? by Andrew Towers

GUEST POST: Why DID I write a book? by Andrew Towers

andrew towers.png

Andrew Towers is the author of Top of the House, a “brilliant, bold, hilarious and uplifting novel involving a golden monkey, a toy troll, a transvestite, his lover and a lot of bingo by the sea in the North East town of Deerpool. It’s a comedy, a love story, a thumping good heist and a life-affirming read”:

Maurice is down on his luck in Deerpool.

He’s lost his teaching job, the electricity in his flat has been cut off and the local hoodlums mock his transvestism and upload their exploits onto YouTube. To make things worse, he and his best friend and sometime lover ‘Divvy’ Karen have managed to pique the ire of Karen’s psychopathic and vengeful ex-boyfriend, Chunky.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. When he finds out that the Pentagon Bingo Hall, mecca of the north-west, is giving away a golden monkey worth half a million pounds he plans a heist that will make their dreams of escape a gorgeous reality. But there are numerous unforeseen complications…

Will Maurice and Karen win large, fulfill their dreams and ride into the sunset bound for Tijuana? Or will the murderous Chunky ensure that their number is finally up?

Today I’m lucky to have an amazingly funny guest post from the author himself. I loved reading this post and I hope you do too!
