Everest Here Continents Collided has gone to the distributor.

Good day,

I have finally sent my Everest book to the distributor.  All going well the book should be available by the end of the month through eBookit.  Thereafter by early October on Amazon and finally through ibooks by mid October.  I am very pleased with it.  The President of eBookit was very complimentary about the photography, particularly the people photographs.  The tome has taken two years in total to produce.  A year after being in Nepal I started to write it.  And yes it has turned out as I envisaged it.  It is many respects a modern day version of Hagen's seminal Nepal masterpiece.  But focused on the Khumbu.  It has a larger geological content in it which I feel is appropriate given the research that has gone on since Hagen was a geologist in Nepal in the late 50's early 60's.

Check back for the link to the early eBook volume.

Everest: Here Continents Collided

Good day.

Welcome to the opening page of my new blog supporting the publication of my forthcoming eBook "Everest Here Continents Collided".

My book has been two years in the making and will be published in September (2011).  It will be a guide for those who trek in the Khumbu, and want a better understanding of  the scenery.  It will help the armchair mountain lover to get a deeper view of how the Himalaya formed and the spectacular scenery that exists in the Khumbu.

Over the next few weeks I will add some content from the book and details of where you can download a copy.  Also it will be a focal point for feedback and additional content once the book has been published.

Check back soon!
