Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
'Seeing the World My Way' is a no-holds-barred journey of hedonism and thrill-seeking adventure. I'm a young blind and severely deaf guy, and I'm backpacking round the world - solo. No help. No guide. Just me and my backpack, and a tiny budget. I've made it to all 7 continents and over 50 countries so far, including Antarctica.
My book is full of drama, danger and discovery, and shows readers my view of the world as I achieve my dream, and deal with my disability whilst living life to the limit.
From bungee jumping in New Orleans, Seeing the World My Way is a no-holds-barred account that is certainly not for the faint hearted! to booze filled nights out in
Q: Why did you go indie?
I sent my book to most of the major publishers in the UK, and they all turned me down. I asked Helen Hart of SilverWood Books to copy-edit the manuscript so I could offer it free on my website www.tonythetraveller.com, and she offered me a publishing deal with her independent imprint SilverWood Originals. The book is now available in print, and as an eBook. I've been featured on BBC Radio Four, in , The Sun newspaper and a variety of magazines from Portugal to Finland to Brazil!
