Field of Dreams


500 copies of ‘A Year without Beer’ have now been downloaded! Okay, so it’s not as impressive as John Grisham or that naughty woman who writes the 50 Shades books but it’s a start.

As Kevin Costner once said ‘If you build they will come’

My JustGiving page has now reached £2907 for Claire House Children’s Hospice– with the added profits made from book sales I will soon hit the £3k mark :)

So in effect you are not only getting an interesting, fun read but giving money to a good cause too. That’s got to be worth 77p hasn’t it?

Book Club

So it's five days since my challenge ended and what an exciting week it's been. It's not every week you release a book, in fact it's a first for me but it sure is good to finally get it released and out into the public domain. 

Now I just need people to read it...

Quite a few people have asked me how can they read it if they don't have a Kindle? It's simple, either download the Kindle app on your smartphone or get it on your PC here http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/kindle/pc/download

UK readers - you can buy the book here - https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00C114C6E
US readers - you can buy the book here - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C114C6E



If you have any other questions please let me know. 

Thanks, 

Ian

The End

365 days have passed so you all know what that means...time for a pint! :)

Thank you to all who've read my blog, followed me on Twitter, sponsored or supported my challenge. Without the generosity and support of others this year would have been a lot harder than it was.

Now all you've got to do is buy my book on 28th March. Don't worry I'll update my blog with the link when its released :)

The Luck of the Irish

It's St Patrick's Day! The day when the Irish party and the non-Irish party like they're Irish. Oh how I would enjoy a pint of Guinness today...oh well only 7 days to go!!!

To all my Irish readers - Happy Saint Patrick's Day. Enjoy the craic :)

14 Days

I sit with the laptop in front of me writing my latest blog entry in a state of relaxation which is not often felt on a Sunday evening, especially in the knowledge that in a matter of hours I will return to work for another fun packed week. 

For the last week I have been on holiday to Center Parcs. It was a great break and really chilled me out. A bit of swimming, badminton and archery helped to unwind. You've never truly lived until you've shot a rubber coyote through the neck with an arrow. 

There's only two weeks of sobriety left. If you haven't yet sponsored then you are running out of time. Do it now!
