Finally - the book is ready!

After much work (if I had known what I was letting myself in for, would I have done it?) my book on life in Mexico - now titled "Living La Vida Loca: When the Dream of a Life in Mexico Becomes Reality" - is now available as a PDF for download at Lulu.com.


I am in the process of publishing a version on Smashwords.com in all the common competing ebook formats (e.g. for Kindle and Sony devices). Unfortunately, their conversion mechanism is currently undergoing “repair”. The limitations of publishing for multiple formats mean that I have had to adjust the formatting in the Smashwords version, so I would suggest that people use Lulu unless they need the different version for their ebook reader. If you are interested in the Smashwords editions, please just drop me a line and I’ll let you know when they are available.The book is illustrated throughout with some of my photographs – another passion that I have been feeding over the last few years.

Both on-line retailers will have a sample of pages from the book. I hope you’ll check it out. And if you decide to buy and download it – thank you, and I hope that you find it an interesting read!
