RED LETTER DAY: ROGUE BLACK BELT 3 is out!
Finally, the third book in my ROGUE BLACK BELT series, passion & purpose, arrived today. I think this is my best writing to date; and for those who have a love for BJJ, this book will be far and away the most interesting.
The most difficult part of the whole process was coming up with a way to finish the book; after all, it is autobiographical in nature – and I am – at least at the writing of this blog, still alive! After much deliberation, I decided to use the last chapter of the book to kind of sum up some of the most important life-lessons that I have learned over the past 15 years or so. I sent the last chapter to my good friend Geoff Thompson in the UK (prolific author and inspirational martial artist) who after reading it, has spent several e-mails trying to convince to me to expand my last chapter into a book in it’s own right. I shall seriously consider this advice – after I get a little feedback from my readers.
I know you will enjoy this book; it comes straight from the heart and has not been edited, apart from a spell-check and some grammatical corrections.
My wife is sitting down next to me as I write this, and she has started reading … I wonder if I should move a little further away?
Anyways, and lastly, a huge thank you to those hundreds of e-mails from those who have read the Fear & the Engine and Challenge & Ownership. I very much appreciate the wonderful and inspiring comments – I am so glad to have been able to make a positive impact on so many lives.
