Writing this book has been possibly even more challenging than the ocean – finding the publisher, finding the time, finding the words. But I am happy to say that we are nearly there. We’re just choosing pictures for the insert, brushing up the edits and tweaking this and that. I am really honoured and excited that Ellen MacArthur, one of my all-time heroes, will be writing the foreword.
It will be published in February 2011 and will be available for pre-order soon, so watch this space. We’ll be planning some book signings too – so please drop me a line if you have links to a bookshop, business, club or school that would be keen to book one in with a talk during February.
In other news, I didn’t make the top cut of the BA Great Britons Awards but thanks for all your votes anyway.
PS Plans for London to London: Via the World truck on and are getting exciting. My Logistics Manager Tim Moss is currently on a recce in Russia’s Far East and Japan, meeting locals and gathering information ready for next year.

WOW! yet another HUGE achievement. Must admit i was amazed to see jessica’s book on the shelf so quickly. i have a fiend who is currently launching a book which took 5 years to publish ( I think it may have needed ALOT of editing.
Are you coming back to the Annexe for a launch and signing?
