Interview with K Austin-Jones, author of An Essential Guide to Housework for the Uninitiated/Bone Idle

Easily offended? Hate sweeping generalisations? Hmmm… ‘An Essential Guide to Housework for the Uninitiated/Bone Idle: Basic housekeeping skills for husbands/partners and the errant female‘ might not be for you then. If, however, you recognise that you might be a bit slack around the house or you live with someone who’s inherently lazy when it comes to housework, then you might enjoy this funny read.

Let’s face it, we all know someone whose household habits make us cringe. Personally, I just love finding my husband’s toenail clippings on the settee! Find out how to get it right and keep your partner happy and better still, find out what not to do! It’ll save a
whole load of arguments in the long run!

Sounds like you should win the Nobel prize for saving loads of marriages. But the reader isn’t going to end up feeling lectured, are they?
I’d like the reader to feel like they’ve had a blummin’ good chuckle and that maybe their partner isn’t quite as bad as they’d thought.

What genre is your book?
I would describe this book as adult comedy.

What kind of readers will it appeal to?
This book will appeal to men and women who have an exceedingly lazy partner in the house and either want to read about how they are not alone or want to give the book to their partner for some encouraging hints!

Complete this sentence for us: if you like _________________, you’ll love my book.
If you like a little sarcasm, you’ll love my book!

You talked about your husband’s nail clippings. Is he the only person that has led to this book?
I would like to thank my husband and my friends’ husbands for the inspiration!

Have you written any other books that we should read next?
I’ve written two other books. I’m clearly trying to find my niche as one is a child’s book entitled ‘The Rocking Horse‘ and the other is a little comedy written by a Jack Russell entitled ‘Who’d Be A Jack Russell‘! Both are available on Amazon Kindle. I’m particularly proud of ‘The Rocking Horse’ and can really recommend it as a tale of magic and adventure for children aged between 8 and 12. However, if you love hearing about naughty Jack Russells (let’s face it – are there any good ones?) then you’d probably enjoy reading ‘Who’d Be Jack Russell?‘.

Tell us a bit about yourself.
I currently work full time in administration and tend to my horses in the evenings. Miraculously, I manage to find time to write first thing in the mornings. I call it my ‘Witching Hour’. But the dream is to become a full time writer. Hopefully one day my books will grow wings and fly me to the stars.

Do you have a website where we can keep up with your work?
I have a dedicated author page on Amazon Kindle.

What about social media?

What’s next?
My latest book is a comedy chick lit novel and should be out later this year. It’s much in the style of Bridget Jones and hopefully just as funny.
