    Receive an Advance Review Copy of my e-book.

    It is creative non-fiction, my first book ever published, the first book of a series, and contains stories of travelling through eleven countries, the normal, and not so normal things I saw and lived through, and a look into another person's mind to see how they understand and deal with these normal/not so normal circumstances.

    Receive an E-book after it's published.

    The estimated formal publishing date is April, 2020, and you will receive the book directly from the online platform that is selling it.

    It's my first ever published book, and the first part of a series.

    The storyline is an accumulated collection of smaller stories of experiences and encounters in far away places where I didn't know anyone, and often didn't speak the language. It includes stories of people I met, accounts of some bewildering experiences that I had that left me puzzled, and a perspective into how another person resolves the array of thoughts and feelings that come with unexpected circumstances.

    Receive an ARC and a Paperback Book

    I'm excited and confident to be releasing my first book, and think people will be eager for the next one to come out. I estimate it will take about a month for the next one to be released.

    It's a saga of smaller stories that make up the book, events and odd situations experienced while travelling, and an unprecedented view into the mind of another person, how they think/feel, and the waivering decision making process.

    It's original, unlike anything you've ever read, follows an unexpected storyline, is interesting, and has a nice, easy reading flow.

    Due to the new and unexpected 'self isolation' all my clients have put me on hold.

    I can send the Advance Review Copy immediately after the Kickstarter campaign closes. The earliest I can guarantee the softcover copy is the end of September, 2020 when I get my first payment of books sold. If circumstances change and the world goes back into 'normal working mode' I can send you your paperback copy much sooner.

    It’s funny to see
    the business men
    afraid.
    In the day they might be proud
    and snobby
    and think they’re great.

    At night
    now
    fishing
    on the embankment
    alone
    even the businessmen look afraid
    when they pass.

    There are scattered wanderers
    to the left
    to the right
    the remnants of the working world
    folding it in for the night.

    We’re not alone.
    They’re not alone,
    but they’re scared.
    Their day faces melted in the shadows
    on the embankment
    after dark.

    The e-Books will be forwarded immediatey when the campaign closes, and the Signed Softcovers will be mailed as soon as possible.
