Book Lost In Spain

A Collection of Humorous Essays

By Scott Oglesby

Lost In Spain By Scott OglesbyAn awkward American alcoholic with OCD, a Welsh drug dealer and a murderous Gypsy walk into a bar owned by a British gangster in rural Spain…

It sounds like the start of a joke but it was only the beginning of my life in Spain.

This collection of humorous essays is loosely based on the three years I lived in the mountains of Spain.

It is packed full of cringe inducing hilarity that everyone who has ever had an awkward moment will relate to.

Lost In Spain Chapters

Half of the chapters are character driven; an insane examination of politics, drugs, bad boys, lost tourists, and aging drug lords.

The other half are more about the mess that is me, exploring the roots of my own dysfunction and battles with addiction, mental illness, and more issues than a child star on Dr. Phil.

In “See This Vein” drug addicts teach water aerobics, blow up a meth lab and destroy a luxury villa.

“Kappi and the Gypsies” features murder, mayhem, and marijuana but absolutely no soap.

In “1,2,3,4” I conquer crippling, lifelong OCD using nothing but a pen and my plucky wife.

A German Justin Timberlake look-alike takes his last ride in “Kaspar and Nothing More.”

In “Political Discourse,” an election is decided with beer.

Witty banter, comedic timing and a heart the size of a diseased cantaloupe “Lost in Spain” offers an insight into the human experience that readers will instantly recognize but never, ever, voice in polite company.

Lost In Spain: A Collection Of Humorous Essays is available at Amazon in paperback and kindle.

So far the book is reviewing well on Amazon. I would love for that to continue so if you’ve already read my book I would greatly appreciate you taking a few moments to pen a quick review as well.

    Well Scott, you did it. You published that book. Well done. I’m sure it will just fly off the shelves. I certainly have missed your blogging and it is good to see you back. Cheers.

      Thanks, it’s great to see you again! I checked your blog a few times but didn’t see any activity. Are you still active?

      It’s reviewing really well but sales are hard. The couple hundred that have bought it have loved it.

      Thanks Karen!!

        I haven’t been active for a couple of months but getting ready to get back into it. Have been working on print articles with some success (have another one being published next month). I guess you are spending most of your time on promotion at the moment. What plans for the future?

          I’m coming over to check you out in a moment. Congrats on being published! It’s always an amazing feeling.

          Not as much time as I should. Getting this blog up and running is a lot harder than the wp days, but I think it will help sales as well. And?? It’s fun and instantly gratifying. I’m putting out a shorter 99 cent ebook in a few months and have just begun working on a novel.

          Thanks Karen!
