Hello! I know it’s been years, but here’s an update!

10 Jul

So it’s been like years since I last updated this blog, but I thought I’d write a quick update of life so far and what’s been going on.

The really big and exciting news is that I have a debut novel coming out!!

 

Eternal Forever is a genre-busting murder mystery and thrilling start-up adventure.

The main characters are Mack Majors, the Marketing Director of Eternal Forever, the UK’s first digital legacy management agency and Jessie Adams, overnight popstar sensation, who’s on the run because her manager’s been murdered. There’s loads of action and funny moments – and if you look deeper – quite a lot of stuff that may make you think differently about how you do things online.

I really loved writing about Eternal Forever and got very carried away with the whole adventure. I adore my characters and my company so much – but who wouldn’t when you have a cool hero running an agency who looks after people’s online profiles when they’re dead!

I hope you love it too!

In other news, I’m still active in property and tenant shenanigans keep me firmly rolling around. I’ve also been lucky enough to have enjoyed many adventures overseas including sailing in the Caribbean, touring through India, China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan, the Philippines and visiting many countries in Europe and even participating in an archaeological dig!

 

Life, as they say, is for living – and I’ve been doing that 🙂

I’m sure in these past few years I’ve had many disasters and bad days when it comes to property, but I choose to focus on the freedom property gives me. Being a property investor is such a privileged occupation; we get to create and share homes for people.

For now, I’m enjoying the thrill of owning a digital start-up – even if it is only in my head! I’m quite sure one day someone will do this, you can click here to see what I think Eternal Forever’s website might look like!

If you do nothing else than read this, in the words of Mack, remember:

“Every day thousands of Facebook users die. What is happening to those people’s profiles? What is happening to their virtual footprint, their digital legacy, their online DNA that they’ve left scattered about the internet?”

“Email accounts, online banking, music, film subscriptions, file storage, cryptocurrencies, social media accounts – these bytes of data have real consequences and can be a target for hackers. That’s why Eternal Forever’s role is so important, people need to get their digital assets in order – they are just as important, if not more important, than their stuff in the real world.”

If you do want to buy the book, it’s available in paperback and Kindle here
