Hello there. Thanks for dropping by. Please put your feet up and relax - though you might want to brush the chair off first, I had pizza last night and I am, if nothing else, a messy bugger.
Here you'll find lots of information about me and my books. Most of it will probably be the truth as well, which is rare for the internet, in my experience. Enjoy!

BRICKING IT now available in W.H Smith, so here's a competition!

Hi folks,

To celebrate BRICKING IT being sold in WH Smith over the Christmas period, I'm launching a competition to win signed paperbacks of my three biggest hits: LOVE FROM BOTH SIDES, FAT CHANCE, and, of course, BRICKING IT.

To be in with a chance of winning, here's what you have to do:

If you're in a branch of WH Smith and you see a copy of BRICKING IT lying around making the place look untidy, simply pick it up and take a picture of yourself with it. Or buy it, and take a shot with it outside.
Or, or,  if you're feeling shy, a picture of just the book will do, but a nice shot of your smiling face is much preferred! 

Make sure to say what branch of WH Smith you're in, so people will know where to flock to pick up their very own copy. Ahem.

Then, all you have to do is upload the picture to Facebook and/or Twitter, making sure to tag me in it, or message me to let me know you've done it. I will then randomly chose a winner from all the entries. 

Yes, this is your chance to win a unique, one of a kind, Spalding-esque gift by looking like a prize plum, taking photos of yourself and a bright red book in a major high street retailer, just weeks before Christmas! 

So there you have it. I'll run the competition until Sunday December 27th, so get snapping!

...and don't forget, BRICKING IT will make a tremendous gift for any of your loved ones this Christmas. I know, I've asked them. They told me it would make their Yuletide dreams come true, and you wouldn't want to disappoint them now, would you?

Try not to look this much like a goon though, eh?


Of course, this entire thing is a blatant attempt to get it higher than 80...

BRICKING IT is out now!

Hi folks,

BRICKING IT is out now on Amazon!

Here is the cover, and all the usual details:


BRICKING IT

When siblings Dan and Hayley Daley inherit their late grandmother’s derelict Victorian farmhouse, it seems like a dream come true. All they have to do is fix the place up and sell it for a tidy profit!

Except—as anyone who has renovated an old house knows—things are never that easy.
The walls are rapidly crumbling around them, the architect is a certified lunatic, the budget is spiraling…and then there’s the disturbingly intelligent cow to worry about.

On top of all this, the renovation is being featured on a daytime reality TV show, and as soon as Great Locations presenter Gerard O’Keefe catches sight of Hayley’s first-floor balcony, he’s determined to woo her out of her ban on romance, whether she wants him to or not.

Will Dan and Hayley survive and sell up? Or will the whole thing collapse on them like a ton of bricks?

From bestselling author Nick Spalding comes a hilarious tale of life, love and dodgy plumbing.
