Being in a Band


Life can be pretty hum drum at times but just every now and again a light bulb moment can change your life forever. So when our hero bank clerk decides he wants to be like the Gallagher boys, the die is cast and the path to musical stardom is set.

‘Being in a Band’ captures the excitement around the time that Oasis punched their way on to the very top of the international
musical globe. Their glorious rise from nowhere made people dream that they too could reach heights that had before seemed

‘Being in a Band’ is a semi biographical comedy, flitting from ridiculous incidents to riotous outings. The new band members,
ever hopeful that their group ‘Wide Eyed Wonder’ will be picked up by some keen or desperate music executive, embark on a series of eventful gigs that just might get them recognised.

If only it was that easy…

Anthony Scott’s third novel sees him writing pure comedy. One of his author heroes is Tom Sharpe and there is plenty of that
magic here to make you chortle.

The Birthday Gift is a novel that sweeps through issues of love, of hope, of sorrow and of destiny. It spans across Europe, from Cornwall to London to France to Germany and then to Poland.

The book is a gripping combination of thriller and romance, revolving around the painting central to the book which featured heavily in the recent Hollywood blockbuster, The Monuments Men, written and directed by George Clooney.

Anthony Scott released his first book through Matador, On Ashover Hill, 2 years ago to much acclaim. He splits his time between the East Midlands, the North East and Cornwall where he draws his inspiration to write both his books, his blogs and his poetry.

Anthony also runs a financial advice boutique called Fiducia that works with clients across the UK
