Kilimanjaro Book a Global Ebook Award Finalist


My book, Kilimanjaro: One Man’s Quest to Go Over the Hill, is a finalist for the 2012 Global Ebook Award in the Inspirational/Visionary – Non-Fiction category. The book is a memoir that chronicles my attempt to summit Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. At forty years old and on the verge of a midlife crisis, I tried to change my life by climbing a mountain. This is my true story of facing Kilimanjaro and other challenges at middle age.

To celebrate the occasion, I’ve put the ebook version of Kilimanjaro on sale for a limited time at these booksellers:

Readers have called Kilimanjaro “life changing,” “inspirational,” “an epic journey of self-discovery,” and “a peek into someone’s personal travel journal.” It’s a book for anyone who feels over the hill and needs encouragement to make a life change in the face of difficult odds. It’s also for the casual climber, mountaineer, or hiker who is interested climbing one of the world’s tallest mountains. Filled with insights and advice for those who are contemplating their own Kilimanjaro climb, my book will put you on the mountain and inspire you to go over it.

The Global Ebook Awards honor and bring attention to ebook publishing. Now in its second year, the Awards are given in 101 specific categories. They are open to all publishers. Each winner is chosen by category rather than based on size or region. This year, almost 1,000 submissions were judged by a panel of more than 250 judges who are experts in the categories and genres of the books nominated. The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony to be held in Santa Barbara, California on August 18, 2012. For more information, visit http://globalebookawards.com.

      Thanks! Ha ha, not yet. You must be confusing me with my doppelganger, Charley Sheen. Once upon a time, that was a good thing!

      Thanks! I hope you enjoy the book. I watched your video about the Machame Route. It’s a different route than the one I took, Rongai. But it brought back memories! Thanks for sharing.
