MEET MARK RICHARDS

Hi – and thanks for visiting the site. I’m Mark Richards, copywriter, ghost-writer and speechwriter. And – as of last summer – someone who walked 90 miles in 5 days with his youngest son. As you’ll see, I’ve now written a book about the walk. It’s the story of the challenges we faced, what we learned about ourselves and what we learned about each other. It’s also the story of how I came to walk a mile of the Pennine Way in my underpants…
The book is now available on the Kindle. And the early reviews are good:
A superb book, I really enjoyed the commentary and humour
Move over Bill Bryson, you have a successor
A book I’d recommend to anyone with even the remotest sense of humour
I hope you enjoy reading it – and feel free to come back to me with your comments…

Just a quick update as I know a few people are waiting for the paperback of the book as – obviously, hint, hint – it will make the most wonderful Christmas present… Anyway, good news. The cover was designed yesterday – by a guy in Pittsburgh – and Amazon are now printing the proof copies. They’ll be with me on Monday and assuming they’re OK the paperback will be available by Tuesday at the latest. So all systems go, and in the meantime the e-book is available in the Kindle store... ... See MoreSee Less
