I have just finished writing two new books [click here to be the first to know when they are released] so today I’m asking for your help to decide what I should write next.
As always I have too many things bubbling away at once, and I am already underway with seven different books! Please will you help me pick which one would be the best to focus on first?
Also, if you are a regular reader of my blog or watch my online films, I would be hugely grateful if you could take a moment to let me know in the comments what type of stuff you would like me to produce more of.
What do I do well? What is a waste of time? What could I do that would reach a much bigger audience?
Below is a quick synopsis of my different ideas, then a simple vote for which one you’d be most likely to buy. If you think all these ideas are rubbish, please, please say so in the comments!
The Seven Book Options
- The Girl Who Rowed the Ocean: my kids’ books about cycling round the world are selling really well at the moment. This is the story of my experiences rowing across the Atlantic Ocean, modified to be a tale about an adventurous girl who decides she wants a big adventure.
- How to be an Adventurer: a practical guide to planning big expeditions (cycling, hiking, deserts etc.), documenting them through writing, photography and film, and turning your passion into your job.
- Bothy Nights: one of my favourite trips in the UK became my most-popular ever short film. I’d love to create a beautiful, photo-heavy guide to Britain’s mountain bothies and their quirky wilderness culture.
- A World of Adventure: aimed at very young children, this is an atlas introducing the great explorers and the world they explore.
- Microadventures Europe: Following on from my popular book, Microadventures, this is a book of adventure ideas designed for a weekend escape in Europe. Jump on a plane Friday evening, get the last flight home on Sunday night: what wild adventures across the continent can you cram into 48 hours?
- Microadventures USA: Whilst I tried to make the ideas in my Microadventures book be applicable wherever you live in the world, it had a decidedly British feel. This book takes the Microadventure concept to the big ol’ USA.
- Microadventures for Families: Rather than taking your kids to the park at the weekend, why not do something exciting that the whole family can enjoy? Sleeping on hilltops and floating down rivers on inner tubes are adventures all the family can enjoy.
