"Hi Monique. Hows it going? I know its been a while and I now have a dodgy beard but do you fancy getting naked for my book cover."
Im so glad she is a still complete legend and said yes straight away. The Facebook comments from old school mates have already started rolling in. It's safe to say that never in a million years did 10 year old me think I'd be in this situation with the girl who sat behind me in Math. I wonder what our teacher would say?
Anyway. Back to writing. I've never written before and barely have time to read either so getting words on a page that made sense was really difficult for me. Most would say they still don't make sense - I try! I was initially hesitant to write my story down as people like Al Humphreys and Mark Beaumont have that area covered. Now I know I did some super fast touring and nearly died and all that, but I didn't want to write 'just another adventure book'. What I really wanted to do was to help people follow their dream and make them realise they can do something big. I spent 6 months working an all aspects of doing a really big adventure. I made loads of mistakes and learned a lot. I want to share that knowledge with everyone. I know that had I not done all that research I would have not completed my ride. 9 people started a Round The World Cycle at the same time as I did. Only 4 finished. You don't want to fail in your dream. This book will make sure you are as prepared as you'll ever be for the adventure of a lifetime.
So here it is. 20,000 words of everything it entails to do a very long cycle ride.
If I can do it then SO CAN YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
