I’m thrilled to be able to announce (finally!!) that my second book Out of Office will be published on October 1st 2020.
There have been huge changes in the publishing world this year, and in response to that my publication date has been slightly delayed. But in a strange turn of events, this means that the eBook of Out of Office will be available sooner than we first thought! So if like me, you’re a Kindle user, you can be one of the first people to get your hands on the book on June 17th.
I’ve been working hard on this book since 2018. I submitted the proposal the day after my first book was published, which is a testament to how much writing consumes my daily thoughts. And my chronic obsession with work, but I’ll let you read more about that in the book….
This book is the straight-talking, no-gloss life raft that I would have so happily clung to in those turbulent first years

More about Out of Office
This no-nonsense guide addresses the questions that people might feel too embarrassed to ask about going freelance … like how to raise an invoice, submit a tax return, claim expenses, network, and use social media. I also discuss why working from home is proven to have a positive impact on productivity and mental health, and why so many women are making the leap into freelancing out of necessity.
Filled with must-have information, helpful check-ins, and a strong focus on understanding the whys just as much as the hows, Out of Office will help you dive into freelance life and push you to the next level, while making sure you’re taking time to reflect on your business and state of mind.
This book is a brilliant one-stop-shop for all your freelancing needs
– Emma Gannon, Sunday Times Bestselling author of THE MULTI-HYPHEN METHOD
One thing that has warmed my ice-cold heart is the support of other freelancers whilst working on the book. Not only have I been bombarded with words of encouragement from friends and colleagues, but I was also granted the privilege of interviewing some of my favourite freelancers. In the book, you’ll find anecdotes and advice from the likes of Poorna Bell, Alice Benham, Vix Meldrew, Julia Day and Sara Tasker. What a gift!
I’ve also been working on the Out of Office podcast (launching Aril 29th) because I wouldn’t be living my true Millenial life if I wasn’t recording my thoughts on tape and broadcasting them to the nation. I’ve secured a sponsor for the podcast and I’ve been condensing some of my most helpful advice into a monthly column for them. You can read the first one here.
That’s all for now. Come say hi on Instagram to stay up to date with book-related stuff and get behind-the-scenes content (mostly footage of me drinking Irn Bru and doing home workouts, ENJOY!)
