Giveaway: Confessions of a Single Mum by Amy Nickell

cover of Confessions of a Single Mum by Amy Nickell

I’ve been stocking up on books to read this Summer. We’ve been planning some really fun trips way and I can’t wait for some time to read whilst the children play. I know my readers love to get their hands on the latest books too, so you’re going to love my latest giveaway where you can win a copy of Confessions of a Single Mum: What It’s Like When You’re Expecting The Unexpected by Amy Nickell.

Confessions of a Single Mum by Amy Nickell

Single mum Amy Nickell is a showbiz journalist and broadcaster, fast establishing herself as the leading voice of single mums everywhere.

When Amy Nickell left university, she managed to nab herself a job as a celebrity reporter in London. She literally got paid to ask Robert Downey Junior out for Nando’s, while living with her gay best friend, their Harry Styles cardboard cut-out and their pet toad, Snoop Frog, and drank Prosecco way before it was in fashion. Things were good, they were fun, they definitely weren’t serious. However, that life took a very grown up, very serious detour when Amy found herself expecting the unexpected and pregnant age 24. Pregnant and without a boyfriend. And so, her life took on an altogether new direction…

Here in Confessions of a Single Mum, Amy debunks single mum myths, delves into the world of dating (nothing ruins sexy sofa snogging ambience like the watchful eye of Daddy Pig), going back to work just ten days after giving birth, lactating WAY too close to Simon Cowell, as well answering the questions that come with having a family that is anything but nuclear. Amy’s wonderfully frank, outspoken and hilarious story will inspire other parents to own their single status as well as anyone whose life has thrown them a curveball.

About Amy Nickell:
Amy regularly writes for the Guardian, Grazia, the Sun, the Radio Times, Woman Magazine and the Metro, as well as appearing on BBC ‘s Woman’s Hour, Sky News Sunrise and Good Morning Britain. Whether Amy’s is oversharing in newspapers and magazines, or in front of the camera offering Jennifer Aniston Doritos, she’s never taken a standard approach. Despite the bad press, unplanned pregnancy and single parenthood didn’t ruin her life and she’s been writing and talking about it ever since.

Confessions of a Single Mum is published in paperback by Headline on 11th July.
