Quite by accident, I came across a new software for publishing my ‘Books’. (These were the old-fashioned tomes I used to write at the end of a big trip, and email to you.)
I would do this thinking that all the world (or at least my close friends) were reading and enjoying them. However, one day a Swiss friend told me bluntly that he had to be truthful and that he really thought they were boring. Others had suggested more subtly that they were so caught-up with family or other priorities, that they simply didn’t have the time to ‘read a book’.
Having picked myself up from these shattering revelations, I went about looking for means of communication that were more ‘telegraphic’ in nature – almost ‘sound bytes’. I set-about trying to ‘improve’ my photographic inclusions, including captions for some of my friends who grew up with comics, and have never read a book! And, all that lead me to the now famous blog – ‘the M chronicles’. (I know you check on www.mmusg.com frequently so as not to miss even one post!)
Here is one of the first of the old ‘books’ that I have uploaded into issuu, the new software. When you click on ‘Expand’ it should open into a full screen.
Shortly, I will add a new tab under ‘Travel Writing’ in the horizontal Menu Bar above, and you can read them all.
