Please forgive the impersonal nature of one message
to everyone. However, there’s news and I want to get it out to you all
as quickly as possible. When I was home in England I received a proof
copy of my book from the publishers for checking. It was fantastic to
see a printed copy! I marked up all the corrections and sent it back,
but I don’t know how long it will take before you can buy it.
I looked at the publisher’s website and out of curiosity did a search
for my book to see if there was any news. It’s listed on the website as
COMING SOON. And there’s a place you can click to express interest so
that they will e-mail you as soon as it’s available.
We all know
about computers and it may just be an automated thing that no one
checks, but it did occur to me that if they’re getting lots of
enquiries from potential buyers then that may not do any harm at all,
and might even spur things along!
here’s the thing. If you are interested in buying my book, please go to
the website, details below and express an interest. Please only do this
if you’re likley to buy a copy since I don’t want to create a false
impression. For any of my friends who don’t know, the book is called Of
Land, Sea And Sky and it’s about my life up until the time I started
travelling as a boat gypsy. There may be a follow up!
not just about me, it’s about people that have inspired me as well and
covers all sorts of topics, sailing, growing up (still trying),
relationships (still trying), skydiving, car racing, motorcycle racing,
running a business, dancing, vintage clothes and more. Hopefully you’ll
find something to interest you!
My idea for a new kind of world
peace campaign is also there and it’s an idea I’d like to get out to as
many people as possible. I’d also like to find the financial backing to
try and make it a reality, so if you believe in that goal any help is
you think any of the above topics would interest people, in your
address book or on your friends list please, please copy it to them and
likewise if this has been forwarded to you and you think you can
forward it again please do. If you want to check out my peace campaign
idea before you say anything to anyone, then go to:

If anyone buys my book I’m deeply grateful to you. If I sell enough books my peace campaign may become a reality.
If anyone amongst my friends wants to help sell a few copies then please e-mail me or talk to me.

of you with businesses, blogs or relevant club memberships and contacts
may be able to sell a few and of course make something for yourselves
in the process. I’ll find out about trade terms for you or just order
copies for myself and send them to you – whatever it takes.
club memberships because the book could be sold through sailing clubs,
chandleries, skydiving clubs, the British Parachute Association and
other national parachuting associations, car racing clubs, motorcycle
racing clubs, dance clubs and organisations, as well as through retail
outlets, motorcycle dealerships and similar businesses, blogs and
internet businesses etc etc.

world, if you want to try and do something in your market please let me
