I have just started this publishing venture, having moved to New Zealand a few years ago from the UK. Before embarking on various projects involving remote and dilapidated houses I was a writer of yachting books and magazine articles.
On emptying boxes here I found a couple of unpublished projects, and decided that technology now enabled me to publish them myself. So here they are. I alone am publisher, editor, author, website designer and general factotum.

My first book is a rather unusual fable – The Seven Gifts. Click cover for details.
I wrote this many years ago and it was turned down by a number of publishers on the grounds that it was – “too unusual – we cannot categorise it and thus calculate the profit”. Oh dear. Finally it went into the back of the cupboard, despite the comments of one well-known London publisher (see below), and a number of acquaintances in the business. Read it – see what you think.
“One of those unique and wonderful manuscripts that come one’s way all too rarely”
“A most unusual and beautiful story that lingers in the mind long after one has read it”
I have written twelve books and hundreds of magazine articles on sailing matters, having been a professional yacht skipper when I was younger. Click cover to see my yachting books.
Details coming for this book shortly.
