The Boy Who Biked the World

An exciting day, today (at least for me)…

My eighth book goes on sale this morning. The Boy Who Biked the World – Part 3 completes my trilogy of books about a young boy called Tom who sets off on a journey suspiciously similar to my own four-year circumnavigation. You can buy it here.

I have nothing particularly insightful to say about the book except that I think it’s ace, and I really hope that you will buy it!

If you own a child, or know any, then gifting them a book is a good thing to do. Books are brilliant, powerful things for children and I get a thrill every time a kid tells me they have read one of my books and are dreaming of adventures of their own. The book is suitable, more or less, for children between 5 and 11 years old. But you can see for yourself by reading a chapter here.

I’m trying to get loads of people to buy the book on Amazon in a short span of time: this ‘spike’ helps make Amazon’s algorithms take notice of the book and recommend it to a wider audience than I can reach just through my website.

One more thing you could do which would be really helpful and very lovely is to write a review on Amazon for ANY of my books you may ever have read. It takes less than 30 seconds to do but is a very significant help. Just click here. Thank you!
