I had sought to encourage the image of me as an English gentleman, sitting in a high backed vintage stuffed chair by an open fire. Writing my memoirs and drinking mulled wine as the children dutifully play the piano and recite Tolstoy in the great room next door.
Alas that is as far removed from myself and my current surroundings as can be possible.
Fortunately although I lack the aforementioned mulled wine, open fire and literacy-obsessed offspring, I do have something to say.
Over the years I have written for many websites, publications and educational institutes. My writings have found their way into the mailboxes of business leaders, political activists and hungover students all over the world. Yet this is the first time ever that I have actually decided to write a book.
Or more correctly, a number of books.
Before Keen, FirstFour and of course Zanshuri, it had been my desire to educate and share my knowledge as widely as possibly with those who might be interested in hearing or reading what I have to say. My intention has always been to avoid being verbose or hiding my thoughts behind a veil of technical jargon and gobbledygook. My brief stint as an educator opened my eyes to the irrevocable error inherent in failing to capture the imagination of your target audience, as swiftly as possibile.
So in a short time from now, I will be releasing the first of my many e-books.
All will be on a different subject, with particular emphasis being placed on being informative, enlightening and in no small part, entertaining too.
Plus, I will be sharing the proceeds of my formally published works with anyone who finds any punctuation errors in those books*.
So I would urge you to keep a close eye on our Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and other social media streams, so that you can be one of the first to download the books as they are released. You can sign up to our mailing list too.
And if that doesn’t put a smile on your face, a smile certainly will.
P.S. I will not be sharing the proceeds of my formally published works with anyone who finds any punctuation errors in my books. I only wrote that to get your attention. And if you’re reading this, it worked!
