The day has arrived and I am now an author, so it would seem. It is incredible that the day is finally here. The book has been published and now people can buy it.

The Six Seasons of My Backyard

This is a real book, not digital, so once you place your order the book is printed and then sent to you.


It is now available on createspace and is being sold for USD$45.

For those of you in Melbourne who are interested send me an email as I will do a bulk order for you.

The book has been a lot of work, but I am so glad it is finally done. I am really proud of it and what I have achieved. Now it is time to sit back and rest before the work of marketing it starts.

If you would like to order a copy of it, then you can click on the image of the book and it will take you to the page to order it or click here.
