A quick Saturday book update.
I’m in the process of having selected titles from my Footsteps on the Mountain Travel Diaries series professionally edited by my regular editor Alex Roddie. Bit by bit I am updating the books and publishing revised editions. The new versions will have brand new covers, and will be available in both ebook and paperback format (until now they have only been available digitally).
The latest diary to go through this process is Thieves, Liars and Mountaineers, about my expedition to Gasherbrums I and II in the Pakistan Karakoram in 2009. This was my first 8,000m peak expedition, and the book is written from the perspective of a novice mountaineer with lots of enthusiasm and much to learn. The expedition was a real eye-opener, and there were many surprises, some of them humorous and some a little darker. Ultimately it was a great experience, and I went on to complete many more expeditions to the 8,000ers.
The revised digital version of Thieves, Liars and Mountaineers is available now from the main online bookstores (Amazon, iBooks, Kobo and B&N). To buy a copy, find out more about it, or read a free sample, visit my book page.
The paperback version will be coming soon. In the meantime you can buy the digital version for the bargain price of $1, €1 or £1, depending on your preferred currency. Once the paperback is available, I will be increasing the price to bring it into line with other titles in the series, so get in quick!
