Sophie McCartney Signs Book deal

2020 Funny Women Best Comedy Web Series Winner Sophie McCartney, AKA Tired and Tested has signed a two-book deal with publisher HarperCollins.

The self-identified ‘comedimum’ will have her first book, Tired and Tested: The Wild Ride into Parenthood, published in February 2022 followed by a novel in 2023.

McCartney said: “It’s been my ambition to write for as long as I can remember, so I’m absolutely overjoyed to have signed with HarperNorth.

“I wanted to write not only about parenting, but the wild journey into adulthood and realisation you’ll never be ready for the monumental responsibility.

“I’m hoping to bring a lot of laughs to ‘tired and tested’ grown-ups everywhere – a safe space for collective mistakes, life lessons and discoveries.

“Because let’s be honest, it’s a jungle out there! As a mother-of-two, I’m quite often overwhelmed and exhausted – like so many of us I’ve 100 per cent NOT ‘got this’ — unless, of course, you’re referring to headlice. 

“I’m beyond excited for publication, and also for my debut novel in 2023.”
