I am attempting what I think might be the impossible  I am going to try to get my book read in every country around the world in 80 months (6.6 years) – or at the very least in every continent.  80 months might seem a long time (and if I were an established author it perhaps would be), but I am a nobody, unknown by most of the world. And there are some countries that I am going to find it almost impossible to reach…. so it may not be possible.  But for fun, let’s try anyway.

DEADLINE: 12th June 2027

I need YOUR help.  Amazon only tells me which platform (i.e. .co.uk or .com) the book was purchased through, it doesn’t tell me where you’re actually from. So, if you’ve read my book, please leave me a comment with your location.

Here’s a map of the world and every pin marks a country where my book has been read.
