‘THERE AND BACK AGAIN TO SEE HOW FAR IT IS’ – MY HUSBAND, TIM WATSON’S BOOK – ON-SALE TODAY
Well, it was a long road to get here (quite literally!), but today is a big day. After years of hard work, thousands of miles of motorcycle travels and more dings & dents in my Nikon than I care to remember, my husband, Tim Watson’s travel novel ‘There and Back Again to See How Far It Is’ goes on sale today.
Was I crazy to want to accompany my husband on this 8,000-mile trek on our motorcycles through eight Western states in the U.S., using only two-lane highways & back roads, and living for weeks at a time out of my bike’s saddlebags that were barely big enough to carry my camera and a large-Ziploc-baggie-sized bag of clothes? Yes. Would I do it all over again tomorrow? Hell yes.
We are FAR from what most people would consider ‘hard-core bikers’. Neither of us have ever claimed to be that, nor did we aim to become that. We still aren’t. We simply are two people who love riding our Harleys, and after too many years sitting behind corporate desks decided that it was time to drop everything and do what we love to do for a change. For Tim, it was writing. For me, it was photography. Combine the two, and you get the recipe for Tim’s book.
It will be on book store shelves in the U.S. on October 1st – a month from today. But, meantime, if you happen to be in the UK or Europe, it’s in book stores today. Or, if you’re reading this then we know you have access to the Internet! So check it out & order it online on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell’s or any other major bookseller.
