Seven Days with You by Hugo Driscoll - Blog Tour and Giveaway

Seven Days with You
by Hugo Driscoll

Hugo Driscoll is my guest today and you can read his interview after checking out the Blurb, Excerpt and author info.  


GENRE: YA Romance



Sean Johnson’s life as a small-town farmhand has been nothing but predictable, but when he meets Sophia Hillingdon at the local animal sanctuary, she gets him out of an eighteen-year rut, away from the mundane existence on the farm, and a grieving, drunken father.

Sophia is the first person who understands him and makes him believe that he might get out of their small town, who tells him, he has the potential to be whoever he wants to be and do whatever he wants to do.

But as their relationship unfolds, it is the most devastating of news that will change both of them forever.



Her face was nearer than it had ever been. Her skin felt smooth and warm. All I could do was lean further into her, losing myself in the moment. And then there were her piercing blue eyes-even more extraordinary up close. Before I knew it, I’d brought my hands to her chest as our parting lips collided. We kissed for hours, inhabiting each other with such force as our bodies rolled across the cooled grass. She was the change I had been searching for. It was the first time I realized; I could be anywhere in the world, but nowhere without her.



Hugo Driscoll is a 25-year- old British journalist and content writer for an online publication in London.

When he's not working, you can usually find him writing in the basements of cafes or lamenting the unfair treatment of millennials in overcrowded London bars.

You can also find Hugo on Twitter, Facebook, and his personal blog, which he updates regularly.

Seven Days with You is his first novel.


INTERVIEW With Hugh Driscoll

Have you ever had an imaginary friend?

I haven’t! I’m probably too impatient to entertain the idea of one.

Do you have any phobias?

Rats. Their pink tails are the stuff of nightmares. And that’s coming from an animal lover!

Do you listen to music when you're writing?

I prefer writing with little distraction so music can putt me off my train of thought, but emotive music can help when writing a scene requiring a healthy dose of pathos.

Do you ever read your stories out loud?

To myself? Yes. You can detect more errors and inconsistencies with the writing that way. Microsoft Word used to have this great built-in voice reader, but I can’t seem to find it on their latest edition!
As for reading in front of other people, that’s never been a prospect that’s appealed to me if I’m honest. I’m not an actor, I’m a writer and I feel I’d be doing readers a disservice if they were to hear me stutter my way through a passage!

Tell us about your main character and who inspired him/her.

Sean Johnson is a good-natured individual who hasn’t been dealt a good pair of cards in life. He’s long felt alone with his problems and has never felt comfortable turning to anyone for help. And there are so many people like that in life- regardless of how many friends they do or don’t have. I know I certainly felt like that for a period in my teens, but when you meet someone you’re romantically interested in, it can change your life and be the change you’d been searching for without ever realizing it.
