Last week I went to the coastal town of Whitby in Yorkshire here in the UK for a writing holiday after my trip the previous week to Web Summit in Lisbon. I have just started a new book project for a publisher called APress, and as with any project, it takes a lot of upfront effort to get started, so I decided to lock myself away from the world to get started as I have a deadline to deliver the first 3 chapters.

The trip was timed to coincide with an inset day my kids were due to have on Friday of that week. I went to Whitby to work from Monday to Thursday, and my wife drove up with the kids on Thursday evening so we could enjoy a nice long weekend there as a family.  The trip was a massive success, getting away for that week enabled me to focus and get the 3 chapters delivered. I am not going to talk much about the book just yet until I get nearer to completion of the complete first draft, but I am quite excited about it.

It will be interesting to compare the results from it against my new Kindle publishing business to see how it does. I have already published one short guide myself called A Gentle Introduction to Agile Software Development, and it is doing really well. I have my 2nd short guide ready to release very soon so I will update on that shortly.
