Seven Days with You
by Hugo Driscoll

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: YA Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Sean Johnson’s life as a small-town farmhand has been nothing but predictable, but when he meets Sophia Hillingdon at the local animal sanctuary, she gets him out of an eighteen-year rut, away from the mundane existence on the farm, and a grieving, drunken father.

Sophia is the first person who understands him and makes him believe that he might get out of their small town, who tells him, he has the potential to be whoever he wants to be and do whatever he wants to do.

But as their relationship unfolds, it is the most devastating of news that will change both of them forever.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EXCERPT TWO:

I hadn’t been anywhere, but my mind had been everywhere. That’s how I felt that summer. Or more precisely, that’s how Sophia had made me feel by the time summer neared its conclusion. The months of July and August had followed identical patterns to June in that we rarely spent a day apart. We rode with Violet across the Suffolk countryside, sometimes for miles on end, often stopping by at local pubs. Then it would be Saturday. That was the best day of all for there was no work on Sunday, which meant dancing with Tom and Jessica until our bodies could no longer stand. We drank, we laughed, and most nights after, we made love as we tip-toed up the stairs of my father’s house. I was obsessed with everything about her. Yes, Sophia Hillingdon, the girl I’d known for barely a few months was the girl I now wanted to spend the rest of my life with. And though we often drove each other crazy, we soon laughed and made up as if nothing happened. It often puzzled me as to why Sophia found our fights so amusing seconds after we were hot from the exertion of spouting obscenities at each other. Red-faced, she’d often say, “You drive me mad Sean. But, you know something? That’s just how I like it.”

“Why?” I’d ask.

“Us,” she would say. “I love how angry you make me because…. Well, I’m obsessed with you… even our arguments sound oddly beautiful.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

INTERVIEW:

Do You Have Any Tattoos?
As much as I’d love to recite a kick-ass story about getting one while terribly intoxicated; I am sadly very boring in that department and have none whatsoever. But who knows? Never say never!

Can you tell us something about your book that is not in the blurb?
Well, that question certainly threw me off guard! But, hey, as it’s for you lovely guys I’ll admit that part of the novel takes place abroad.

Is your life anything like it was two years ago?
Not quite. Two years ago I was plying my trade in retail. Luckily, I got my first full-time writing job six months later.

How long have you been writing?
I started writing seriously in my final year of college for the student newspaper having realised a writing job would be the only career worth getting up for at 6am.

What advice would you give a new writer just starting out?
Write, write, write and then write some more! It’s an artform that requires an incredible amount of practice and self-discipline. You can take all the classes you want, but if you don't write anything when it's just you and the keyboard, you won’t improve. So many people want to write, but few follow through with that want. You have to bleed for your craft if you really want to write something good.

And, of course, it almost goes without saying that you should read a wide range of authors. Read anything you can get your hands on. The more you read, the more aware you become of what constitutes good writing and what doesn't.

    1. I don't often read book series. I prefer standalone titles, but as I'm British I'd have to be biased and say the Harry Potter series!
