My youngest son has autism and is frightened of domestic animals, like cats and dogs.

It’s because they invade his space.

He’s never been frightened of large animals like those you see on farms or in zoos, though and that’s what gave me the inspiration for my latest two books, Jodi Goes To The Farm and Jodi Goes To The Zoo.  I have to say I’m quite proud of them because they are both in rhyming verse – no mean feat, I can tell you.

That’s my son in the picture.  He’s almost 24 years old now and hates shaving.

He says, “It’s such a bother!”

I’ve never written children’s books before, but they were a doddle compared to the non-fiction ones I usually produce, and the best bit about them is unless I’ve made some typo’s or something, I won’t have to re-publish them.

Not so, The GVO Story and The 7MinuteWorkout Story, both of which I have to update.

The 7MinuteWorkout StoryIn the case of The 7MinuteWorkout Story, Joel Therien and Chris Reid introduced a brand new compensation plan earlier this month for those who want to be resellers of their brilliant health and fitness program.  It’s such a good deal, and pays out a 100% commission for those interested in getting a fit body and a fat wallet, I obviously had to add it to my book.

Thankfully, I’ve already got it done, but…

…it was such a bother.

Then, Joel Therien has something else up his sleeve, which means I have to re-write The GVO Story too!.

At the beginning of March, he’s introducing a brand new business opportunity called Pure Leverage.  The name should give you a clue about what it’s about, but basically it provides online marketing products and services people want and need, at a price they can afford.

Not only do the products all integrate together, but if you wish, you can become a reseller of them and leverage the efforts of the people you introduce, thus getting 100% commission on your efforts.

It’s never been done before and all indications are Pure Leverage will change lives, so yet again it’s something I need to update my book about.

I only found out about it last night so clearly haven’t done it yet, but watch this space.

It’s such a bother.

PodcastBloggingUncutThen, there’s Dawn Kay, who is the only person ever to have turned the tables and interviewed me.

Usually, I ask the questions.

Anyway, she’s just come out with a brilliant inxpensive new product called Podcast Blogging Uncut, and I’m featured in it.  I had no idea, but have to admit I’m secretly flattered.

The trouble is, the product is all about creating podcasts and because I’ve already done several interviews in the past, it would be a good idea to turn them into podcast versions too.  Actually, because I was mentioned in the course, I sort of feel obliged to do it, so that’s another thing to add to my to do list.

As Jodi says, “It’s such a bother!”

Actually, I don’t really mind.  All the books, products and programs have the potential to give pleasure, help people and improve lifestyles, so spending my time updating and tweaking is a small price to pay, wouldn’t you agree?

However, The GVO Story and the podcasts haven’t been done yet, so as I said earlier, watch this space, unless of course you feel like me sometimes and it’s all …

…such a bother!

Take care
