Who needs a book Publisher?

Some people do, but it is not a pre-requsite for getting published in the closing days of 2012. As I sit here in my kitchen reflecting on the last 12 months, it has been an amazing ride. A year ago I was living in Sussex and waiting for the removal van to pitch up on the 7th January to return me, the family, the dog & the cat back to Norfolk. The world was unclear, but a choice had been made and I was about to enter a new phase of life.

I want to recognise my family at this point, as my wife Agnes and the kids have been a tremendous support for me in the last year. There have been times when the outcomes of our decisions were at best unclear. The fact is that it was as clear as mud for the first 4 months of 2012.

About Writing a book

Had you asked me 6 months ago if I would ever write a book, you would most likely have had a snort of derision in reply. It is clearly possible that some who go on to read this may wish I had done that & moved on. I hope that this not the case for most of you

The truth is, it is more than possible for the individual to publish and I am very proud to have made it to this stage

A nine chapter book that reflects on the journey I have made over the last few years and offers some ideas to anyone who may be in a bit of a hole at the moment.
Life is too short to do something you hate.

The simple fact is that life is very short. I cannot begin to tell you of the satisfaction I gained from completing this book. Another nice moment came when my editor, Tim Smith said he thought it was an inspiring read. That I did not expect. I thought it more likely to be a hatchet job and a re-write.

The great surprise was it never happened and now we are live and published..
