About the Author
I wrote and released my first eBook in 1991. It was a humorous book written for computer programmers and distributed amongst friends. To my utter amazement, the book gained several thousand readers. Back then, eBooks were text files and readers printed them out onto computer printout paper to read them. They were most often distributed via floppy disk or using electronic `bulletin boards'.
My background covers technology and business. I have run a number of successful small businesses and have learnt the value of simple, low-cost and effective marketing. I have adapted many of these skills to promoting my own books. I also regularly advise other authors on the best ways to promote their books.
Today, most of my writing is about environmental technology. Amongst other things, I have written books on solar power and electric car use. Within their niches, several of these books have become worldwide best sellers, both in printed and eBook form.
