100 Days Editions are here!

100 Days, 100 Grand is a big book – over 1,000 A4 pages. That makes it a long read on Kindle, and – if you own the print edition – heavy to carry around. So, based on reader feedback, the content is now available as 12 smaller books – the 100 Days Editions!

The new books are around 50-150 pages each, making for an easier read – and, of course, easier on the pocket, since you can buy each when you’re ready. (The Intro is just £1.99 – or FREE if you’re on Kindle Unlimited!) Each Edition’s cover is accented with the same colour used inside to denote its Part, just as in the complete workbook – it’s the same content of course, just split into the ten Parts plus an Intro and Appendices. Print editions are coming next month; Kindle versions are out NOW. Why not start your collection?

 

Manuscript submitted!

It’s done! The 100 Days, 100 Grand final manuscript is now with Amazon for Kindle-ising and will be released Feb 28, with the print edition avialable in 30,000 bookstores approximately 4-8 weeks later! Whew.

To celebrate, here’s a video flick-through of the entire (print) manuscript… 100 days in 100 seconds!

Up for pre-orders on Amazon today

Happy to report the Kindle version of 100 Days, 100 Grand is now available for pre-order at Amazon! It’s been a long and hard journey, but the (next) finishing line is now in sight. (After which the real work of getting 12,000 people to buy it starts.)

Take a look at my shiny new Author’s Page, then pre-order your copy now!

 

Solid publication date set

Setting a publication date is like doing exams: there’s no backing out, but knowing you have to aim for an exact date concentrates the mind. Accordingly, and with over 200,000 words in the can, I’ve set a concrete date to get the book into stores.

100 Days, 100 Grand will be available for purchase on Nov 30, 2017.

The completion pathway between now and then includes a long summer lock-in in a property I own … bracketed by a couple of courses I’ve wanted to take for years.

100 Days global HQ

100 Days global HQ

The property you know: 100 Days HQ is a tricked-out garage in London, mostly used as a home gym although home’s now somewhere else. The courses are two fitness qualifications I’ve long wanted to try: the PCC and RKC instructor certifications in progressive calisthenics and kettlebells.

The first, in May, is followed by the lock-in; the second, in Nov, signals its close. (I’m not an instructor, but I do write a bit on fitness at Medium, and doing some professional development might help me know what I’m talking about.) That close means everything: text, typesetting, proofing, visuals, the lot, all ready to go to the distributor.

Of course, I’m taking my own medicine – everything planned for the next six months, with daily tasks and checklists just like 100 Days itself – and unless I’ve made serious miscalculations or get hit by a bus, it should go smoothly.

After all, writing a textbook is much like fitness. You can’t just jump on a bar and pump out 20 reps: you need to start small, progress smoothly, level up when you’re ready. And this summer stint should get me to the finish line.
