Frome author releases her first book

Local author, Sophie Bloodworth, has released her first book titled ‘Please Don’t Hire Me, I’m Scared!’ and features the highs and lows of job hunting.

Sophie said, “The book is a satirical look at the job market. It’s definitely not a self-help book, but more of a ‘what not to do’ guide to looking and applying for jobs through my personal experiences, and how I became obsessed with finding the ‘perfect role’.

“After my dream job came to an end, I found it really difficult to find another job which made me as happy as that one did, and the continual job-hunting process became ingrained in my life. I just had this overwhelming desire to write down some of the fears and frustrations I experienced with job-hunting and then had the idea to develop this into a book.

“I don’t think being published has really sunk in yet to be honest, but it’s a great feeling knowing I have been working on something for the last few years and it has finally come to fruition.

“I published my book through SilverWood Books, who are a self-publishing company based in Bristol and it can be bought direct from their website: http://www.silverwoodbooks please-dont-hire-me-im-scared on Amazon or on iTunes.

“This book releases frustrations, disappointment and joyous feelings which can be experienced by anyone who finds themselves a new or long-term member of the job-hunting industry. It does this through sharing personal mistakes with one or two triumphs – there have been fewer of the latter, so if you want a funny read about such an epic job blunderer, then this is for you!”
