As you can see from the stats listing, the journey still continues apace, but now that it is entering its final phase, I’m starting to turn my thoughts towards ‘The Book’ that people all across the country have kept asking me if I’m going to write when all this is over. It strikes me as a potentially good way of raising further awareness for SOS Children’s Villages, but what do all of you think? Would any of you buy a book about my journey? Would any of you buy it for all your friends as well?! And does anybody know a good publisher?!

  1. I definitely think there’s a book in your journey, especially if you can go more in depth into the places you’ve been, the things you’ve done and the people you’ve met. It would be a sort of travelogue with a difference! I wonder if SOS themselves would be able to point you in the direction of a relevant publisher; maybe they have their own connections to a particular publishing house or book agent? It’s worth getting in touch with them to find out. Best of luck! 🙂
