The Audio Book

The Anniversary Edition Audio Book is here.

New audiobook made with professional recording equipment as read by the author. Whew! This was 3-months of full-time work all by itself, including some voice training and learning how to use the software and stumbling through a few different microphones. Now you can listen to the adventure anytime, anywhere. While recording this audiobook, I have a newfound respect for actors. It was really hard to relive the high and low emotions of my trip over and over again as I stumbled through my recordings. I may not have the talent of an actor, but I believe that I read the story with the emotions that only the author can give it.

Travel the world from the comfort of your own home or while driving to work or while exercising or anywhere…

Available on iTunes, Audible and Amazon, Google Play, Barnes & Noble, and most other audiobook vendors. You can even order it at your local library.

Pedal Power: Inspirational stories from the world of cycling.

Pedal Power: Inspirational Stories from the World of Cycling

New 2017. Scott has a chapter about his bicycle journeys and how his adventures fuel a desire to make the world a better place.

Synopsis: A bike can be so many different things—a simple way of navigating busy city streets or enjoying quiet lanes, a cross-country steed to take a rider up hill and down dale, or even a world-beating racing machine. What unites everyone who rides is that they each have their own cycling story to tell. This book collects inspirational stories from riders around the world, both ordinary and extraordinary, from the London cyclist who rode 10,000 km in a month, to the daredevil trials rider who hops from building to building, to classic tales of grand-tour rivalries and legendary cycling records of days gone by. Essential reading for anyone who loves life on two wheels.

Available on Amazon.

By The Seat of My Pants. Edited by Don George. Lonely Planet.

By the Seat of My Pants

New 2018 Edition. Scott has a co-starring role in Edwin Tucker’s “Let the Buyer Beware”. This story is based on the funniest chapter in “Falling Uphill” but from Edwin’s POV.

Synopsis: Humorous tales of travel and misadventure. Lonely Planet knows that some of life’s funniest experiences happen on the road. Whether they take the form of unexpected detours, unintended adventures, unidentifiable dinners or unforgettable encounters, they can give birth to our most found travel lessons, and our most memorable – and hilarious – travel stories. These 31 globegirdling tales that run the gamut from close-encounter safaris to loss-of-face follies, hair-raising rides to culture-leaping brides, eccentric expats to mind-boggling repasts, wrong roads taken to agreements mistaken. The collection brings together some of the world’s most renowned travellers and storytellers with previously unpublished writers.

Available on Amazon.

Support your local community

Thanks for supporting your community by buying direct or ordering at your favorite local independent bookstore. I believe that if we want to live in a great community full of independent businesses, authors, artists, sidewalk cafes, clean air to breathe, etc., we have to spend our dollars in those places. That being said there are a lot of good reasons to buy our books elsewhere. So, if you choose to purchase through Amazon, please click on the ad below. Then I get 76¢ of my book back. Thanks!
