As you may have noticed, things have been a bit quiet around here lately.
I mean, it’s not like I hold myself to a rigorous posting schedule these days, but even for me, two posts and a couple of photos in a month is pretty lax. The good thing, I guess, is that I have an excuse… and for a change, it’s a pretty decent one.
You see, even though I’ve been living a few hundred metres from the Caribbean Sea for the last month and dining on delicious street food all the time (tacos de arrachera and tortas de cochinita pibil have changed my life), I’ve been spending all day, every day in my apartment or hunched over my laptop in a local coffee shop.
Why, you may rightly ask? Why on earth would I inflict such punishment on myself?
Well, you see, it’s because I’ve been writing a book.
I’ll be honest, it’s been a challenge. I knew that the only way I’d get it done would be by setting myself a deadline that was almost impossible to meet and as a result, I’ve probably been fairly unpleasant to live with for the last few weeks. Lauren hasn’t murdered me yet, though, so that’s got to be a positive sign… right?
In any case, I gave myself a month to write and publish the book, and then publicly announced it so that there was no going back. And… well… it’s happened!
The book is called “Hammocks and Hard Drives: The Tech Guide for Digital Nomads“, and it’s available now for Kindle. If you don’t have a physical Kindle, you can read the book in your browser or download the app for phones and tablets here.
Whether you already work from the road or are planning to, my goal with this book was to provide you with all of the straightforward, practical tech advice you need to do so.
Over the course of 10 detailed chapters I:
In short, I completely demystify the technology behind life as a digital nomad. By the end of this book, you’ll be armed with the technical knowledge, skills, equipment and tools to run your business from wherever in the world you happen to be.
There’s much more detail in the Amazon listing, of course, and you can even read the first twenty pages for free (which includes much of the chapter on choosing the right laptop for working from the road.)
I really hope you find Hammocks and Hard Drives useful, and I’m always happy to hear from you with any questions or thoughts about the book.
Thanks in advance for your support!
