Week 35 – It Lives!

It’s been a long slog.

I started writing this book nearly two years ago and I can’t quite believe the job is nearly done.

But it is, and I’m feeling proud.

A Foolish Escape is now available to pre-order (Kindle only) on your local Amazon store.

It will be released on 1st October.

Pre-orders are important to me. Amazon uses pre-orders as one of their metrics to rank books in the listings.

Put simply, the more pre-orders — the more likely they will promote the book.

So, I have a favour to ask.

If you think you’d like to read A Foolish Escape would you please head over to Amazon and place a pre-order?

You won’t be charged until the release date of 1st October and the book will be auto-delivered to your device on that date.

As a thank you I’m putting together a little bonus pack that will compliment the book.

Just send proof of your order (a screenshot of the Amazon thank you page or your email receipt) to neil@neilhawkesford.com, and I’ll get the ‘thanks’ pack out to you 1st week in October.

This week I’ll be tidying up the final manuscript, adding a few maps and photos, and getting the paperback cover completed.

I guess I’d better start thinking about my next book eh? (Any suggestions most welcome). 👍

    Really enjoyed your first book. You are a very brave man to embark on what proved to be a futile adventure. Coastal sailing is vastly different to ocean passages. No close ports to slip into if necessary. Pity you had to sell your little boat!

    I sent you the receipt for the pre-order for A Foolish Escape.

    I used my real name – Bob Steel, but my ‘name’ on Amazon is Jack Bogong. I use jackbogong@gmail.com for most on-line activity.

    There is a story behind my use of “Jack Bogong” which I might tell you sometime.
