Blog Tour Spotlight ft Giveaway — You, Me and Us by Liam Hurley

You, Me and Us
“F*** you for breaking my f***ing heart…”
This is the heart-breaking yet hilarious story of Jimmy Rowland and Erin Poppet.
Jimmy Rowland has the perfect life. He works in his favourite bar by day, and by night he lives his dream with his two best friends in his band.
Erin Poppet crashes into Jimmy’s life like a beautiful storm. He falls in love with her as quickly and as deeply as possible. The intensity of their relationship leaves Jimmy with a broken heart, a useless vacuum and a demon inside him.
Jimmy’s dream life quickly becomes a nightmare when he loses his dream job and destroys his musical career live on stage.
When he hits rock bottom, he decides he only has one choice, to rebuild his life from scratch. He has to get back the life he had before Erin.
This is her story. This is his story. This is their story.
Or as Jimmy would say…
“… this is the story of You, Me and Us.”

Author Bio –
My name is Liam; I am an author from Manchester, UK. I love three things in this world, writing, reading and the viral video of the Irish family trying to catch a bat. (My girlfriend, family, friends and cats may be unhappy with this).
My hobbies include listening to podcasts, watching grown men fight and trying every possible type of ground coffee in the world.

Here are my Top Ten reasons to read my book or spend the night with me…
1. It won’t cost you much.
2. It will be over relatively quickly.
3. I will be very grateful.
4. You can tell other people about it if you enjoyed it.
5. If not, don’t bother.
6. It’s always fun to have something in your hands to flick through.
7. You can review it online.
8. It will leave a mark on you.
9. You won’t want to put it down.
10. It’ll make you laugh.

Author Spotlight- Liam Hurley
I am a writer; as such I am writing about myself today. This is my ‘author spotlight’ for The Lovely Books. Unlike most authors I am drawn to the spotlight. Writers are generally supposed to be shy and retiring. Escaping into a world of their own amongst their characters. But I am much more of an extrovert. The spotlight may as well be a flame and I a moth.
Writing, however, is where I find the most comfort. I get myself in a comfortable place, with a ready supply of coffee, and start to hit the keyboard with vigour. After about thirty minutes I find myself lost; a good few hours can just whirl past.
 I like to write about the real world. As much as I love books about dragons, magic and bollocks, I like to find stories amongst reality. Each one of us is the product of millions of years of evolution, as well as the winner of a hundred-million deep sperm race. Because of these reasons we are extraordinary beings, living in an ordinary world. And that, is where I look for stories; Extraordinary people in ordinary setting

Writing has always been a passion, a dream really. Isn’t it odd how it takes us so long to do things we always wanted to do? You wait for years to do something and then when you eventually do it all you can think is, why did I not do this earlier?! Jesus! This has happened a lot to me over the past few years. I’ve done things then wanted to shout at myself for not doing them before. But I guess that’s part of growing.

For the last six months I have been working on You, Me and Us. My debut novel. I am very grateful to the numerous people who have helped me along the way and those of you who have taken the plunge on an unknown debutant author. It has been a labour of love. I have worked hard on it of course but it has been enjoyable. I’m doing my dream job so I can’t complain, can I? It’d an odd feeling to hold your own book in your hands. Six months of hard work boiled down to 303 pages. It’s a surreal feeling. I find myself sometimes just holding the book in my hands, passing it back and forth like it has some greater symbolic meaning. Essentially though it is a knock-about romantic comedy. A fun light read which would hopefully brighten a few days off work for someone.
As I said to begin with, I am a writer. Simple as that. So, I’ll do me, and you do you. And together we’ll find out much more about this extra, yet ordinary, world we live in.
