Nick Spalding, Z. Constance Frost

“…a hilarious warts-and-all story of his colourful life.” Neil Marr, BeWrite Books.

Nick Spalding tried to write a book in 24 hours. Turns out that’s impossible... it took 30.

He had a dull, drizzly weekend to kill, so decided to make a start on the book he’d been promising all his life to write... and had it finished by bedtime!

You’ll laugh out loud reading his odyssey of non-stop writing, in a selection of anecdotes, asides and stories... all dredged up from an over-stimulated brain functioning on caffeine, nicotine and the occasional chocolate biscuit.

The book is a conversation with YOU and with Nick you'll venture into the thorny topics of love, life, sex, horribly timed bowel movements and a deathly fear of sponges (among many other things).

After you've read Life... With No Breaks, there's a very good chance you may never look at the world the same way again!

- Also features the comedy horror short story Spine Slaughter -

Neil Marr, Editor in Chief BeWrite Books: “I heard this chap had written a book in a single sitting, so I had to read it… and couldn’t put it down until I’d finished every word. It was quite brilliant and had me in stitches at times, in tears at others.”

Smashwords founder and CEO Mark Coker: “I thought it was a scream of a book... and that was before I knew its history – that Nick had written the whole thing in a single sitting.”

Amazon Reader: "This is the funniest book I have read in years. There. I said it. Sorry, Mr Pratchett, I love you dearly, but Nick Spalding has raised the bar when it comes to making-me-laugh-out-loud books."

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

Hopefully that it's a bit of fun to cheer them up in these troubled economic times. Oh, I mention sex quite a bit as well, if that helps.

Q: Why did you go indie?

I like the hats.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?

Um... I think I'm the only one writing in my genre, if my genre is writing an autobiography in less than two days.

Z. Constance Frost is a writer and single mother of two. She lives just outside of Washington, D. C. and is currently working on the second book in the Holly Lin series. Visit her online at www.zconstancefrost.wordpress.com.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

No Shelter is a really fast-paced thriller, with chapters that aren't too long and aren't too short. Also, I took a lot of time trying to get the formatting just right, so hopefully e-readers will appreciate that too :-)

Q: Why did you go indie?

I actually managed to get an agent for this novel who sent it out and while it was ultimately rejected, a few publishers seemed to really like it. Their main concern: they would have trouble trying to market it. So I knew No Shelter would be worth publishing myself. Plus, I own a Kindle and absolutely love the thing.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?

Lee ChildKathy Reichs, Jeffery Deaver, Joyce Carol Oates, and Elmore Leonard
