July 2020 - Through the barrier
Updated: 2 days ago
July has been busy. I have been travelling to Salar de Yumi in Bolivia, Kuang Falls in Laos and Samarkand in Uzbekistan. Well, I can always dream in this lockdown world.
In reality, I have reached as far as the village shop, the local golf course and most adventurous of all ……. the dentist. A coronavirus dominated life just isn’t that exciting.
Although, I can provide a couple of book updates:
· I have finally gone on to Twitter to help promote my book. Now, I had joined Twitter in August 2019, but had not used it beyond following a couple of friends. I have been amazed that I have leapt up from three followers to 500 followers in a month. I wish that it was because of my charisma and wit, alas it is simply by following other twitters who then follow me back.
· Secondly, the book royalties have now helped me to raise over £1,500 for the Meningitis Research Foundation. The aim is to raise £2,000 so I still have quite a long way to go.
