My Next Book Has Been Delayed
I’m sure there’s way more shattering news in the world at the moment, but I know you’re all chomping at the bit to read my next book.
OK, maybe just a few of you . . .
The release of my next title, High and Low, which deals with my depression issues whilst hiking across Scotland a couple of years ago, has been put back to early 2018.
Some family issues I’ve had to deal with, as well as boring stuff called marketing, has taken up most of my time.
But don’t worry, there’s details of a fantastic freebie below!
On the Cape Wrath Trail, read all about that trail, and the rest of my Scottish Hike when High and Low is released
Laptop assures me that with my input, together we can get High and Low finished for you all to grab a copy early in 2018.

A few days ago I downloaded a book on my Kindle that I’d been keen to read for some time. I not only love long distance hiking, and writing about it, but enjoy reading about other hiker’s experiences as well.
Gary Sizer is a name that’s cropped up regularly this year, and his Appalachian Trail memoir – Where’s The Next Shelter? is doing pretty well on Amazon.
I’m about half way through and I love it. I’ll leave the blurb to Gary:
The true story of three travellers on the Appalachian Trail, a two thousand mile hike that stretches from Georgia to Maine, told from the perspective of Gary Sizer, a seasoned backpacker and former Marine who quickly finds himself humbled by the endeavour.
He teams up with Megan, a sassy college grad whose indomitable spirit eclipses her lack of experience, and Lemmy, a cartoonist from overseas whose off-kilter commentary on the wonders and frustrations of the trail keeps everyone laughing.
Sprawling through the woods and towns of the Appalachian mountains, the trail carries the trio through real and fanciful ups and downs ranging from hilarious to perilous. Much more than an orderly account of mountain tops and meals, it is an adventure about friends figuring things out as they go. It’s about screw-ups and solutions, awe and inspiration.
If you long for the horizon, or to sleep under the stars, then come along for the hike of a lifetime. All you have to do is take the first step.
I’d love you to read the whole book but due to Amazon’s T&C’s, Gary can’t give you the whole thing for free, but he can offer you a taster. Click on the link below and you can get stuck into the first three chapters. You don’t even need to give out your email.
