SEQUITUR - The Book
 
I have just approved the proof copy of my new book: "SEQUITUR - to Cape Horn in Comfort and Style". It has now been listed for pre-order on Amazon at:
Click on the image below, not on the text.


It is a rather hefty tome at 680 pages, 315,000 words and over 2400 colour photos, charts and maps in an 8.5 by 11 format.

I'm working at getting a Look Inside feature up and running.

That's pretty neat. Wishing you the best with it. I may get a copy, when available.

Is it a collection of your posts from the blog, or is it written from scratch?

p.s. Hunter should pay you royalties.

The price is a bit of turn off. Sorry to say.

Awesome Michael. Congrats on putting that together!

And Minne's right - Hunter should be all over this.

Will it be available in audible.com in the future? They are part of Amazon now.

I hope there are recipes along with the adventures! Oh, and wine suggestions to go with.
:D

Very cool that you are published!

$50 a bit of a turn-off? You bleedin' cheapskate sailors are all the same ;)

I agree; the price is high. However, it is rather difficult to produce and sell 680-page colour-illustrated book for anything less without losing money. I have trimmed the cost to the bone and I assure you that this is not a money-making venture. The 315,000 word content is the equivalent of eight or ten standard novels and the adventures described and illustrated are priceless. :D

The storyline is based on the blog, most of which I have reorganised and rewritten. There is much additional material, and I created dozens of new maps to lace the whole thing together. There are 2442 colour photos selected and edited from the nearly 300,000 photos we shot along the way.
