Announcing my new novel LOGGING OFF! Out Tuesday April 7th!

It's that time again, folks...

I have a new novel out next spring!

Here's all of the details:



From bestselling author Nick Spalding comes a laugh-out-loud story about getting offline—and getting on with life.
Andy Bellows is in a right state. Plagued with insomnia, anxiety and neckache, he’s convinced there’s something seriously wrong with him. And the worst thing is that his doctor agrees. The diagnosis: Andy is in the grip of a self-destructive addiction to technology—he just cannot put that bloody mobile phone down.
Texting, tweeting, gaming and online dating—technology rules Andy’s life. His phone even monitors his bowel movements. So how will he cope when he’s forced to follow doctor’s orders and step away from all of his beloved screens?
From having to leave the flat in search of food like some kind of Neanderthal to engaging in conversations with actual people, Andy’s about to discover just how bewildering—and scary—the analogue world can be.
And when his sixty-day detox hits the headlines—making him a hero to suffering technophiles everywhere—Andy is sorely tempted to pack it all in and escape in the nearest Uber.
Can he get himself out of this mess, and work out how to live a better, technologically balanced life…without consulting Google even once?

OUT NOW! My new novel DUMPED ACTUALLY!



From the bestselling author of Checking Out and Dry Hard comes a hilarious story about losing the love of your life, and finding yourself in the aftermath.
When Ollie Sweet is very publicly dumped by ‘The One’, his seemingly perfect world dissolves into misery, self-pity, and a bizarre rooftop meeting with a suicidal man in flip-flops. While most would seek out the support of loved ones at such a torrid time, natural-born journalist Ollie asks the subscribers of his website: how did they get over their failed relationships?
When Ollie follows some of their more extreme advice, chaos inevitably ensues, including accidentally exposing himself to some unsuspecting wildlife, jumping out of a perfectly serviceable aeroplane, and suffering from an extremely painful bottom, courtesy of a maniacal Scotsman.
Of course, all of this goes down a storm with his online following, and Ollie soon finds himself the centre of everyone’s attention – whether he likes it or not!
With his eclectic collection of supporters to guide him, can Ollie mend his broken heart, heal his broken bottom, and learn to find happiness again?

Announcing my new novel! Pre-order DRY HARD now! Out on JANUARY 10th!

I'm delighted to announce that my next book will be released on Amazon in Kindle, paperback and audiobook formats on Thursday JANUARY 10th!

The novel is called DRY HARD and here are the cover and the promotional blurb for it:


From the bestselling author of Fat Chance and Checking Out comes a hilarious story about giving up… but definitely not giving in.
Kate and Scott’s marriage has always been a lot of fun, with alcohol at the heart of it. After all, what’s more entertaining than a good laugh, and a large drink…or six?
But recently, those relaxing drinks have become more crutch than comfort—and the couple have almost forgotten how to talk to each other sober.
Then their teenage daughter Holly uploads a video of their humiliating drunken escapades, which gets picked up by YouTube superstar PinkyPud—and goes horrifyingly viral.
In a last-ditch attempt to prove to the world they’re more than just boozy idiots, Kate and Scott quit alcohol completely. But with Holly’s…er… ‘help’, what begins as a family promise soon escalates into a social media phenomenon: #DryHard!
With the eyes of the internet upon them, can Kate and Scott stay teetotal—and save their marriage in the process?

Checking Out is out now!

I'm delighted to announce that my new book is now available on Amazon in Kindle, paperback and audiobook formats!

The novel is called CHECKING OUT and here are the cover and the promotional blurb for it:


What do you do when the doctor says you could die at any moment? Well…after you’ve made a cup of tea, of course.
Nathan James is young, successful and has the world at his feet. Unfortunately, he’s also about to die—which ruins things somewhat. And now he’s staring imminent death in the face, Nathan is having to rethink some of his life choices very hard.
This means embarking on a hectic journey of self-discovery that includes, amongst other things, losing his dignity to an inescapable bean bag, suffering screaming nightmares about a monstrous potato, and getting up close and very personal with a bipolar donkey.
All of which is fine, but then Nathan falls in love with a charming girl called Alison, which is a really stupid thing to do. Because how can you give your heart to someone when it might be about to stop?
From Nick Spalding, the bestselling author of Fat ChanceBricking It and Mad Love, comes a comedy about dying—which is easy—and living, which is most certainly not.

As you can see, this will be a book full of the kind of comedy you've come to expect from a Nick Spalding novel, but also has a deeper and more meaningful kind of story that what you might be used to reading from me.

...fear not, there are still lots of gags about bodily fluids and embarrassing situations!

You can visit Amazon right now to pre-order the book in whatever format you fancy.
