I’ve had such a busy week as I so often do that I was only aware of one of these events last night. Namely my new book Secret Gardens of the City of London which had been climbing in the charts since its release just over a month ago reached the number 1 ranking in its Amazon section.
Sir Isaac Newton spent his lockdown from the Plague working out the Theory of Gravity, I spent my lockdown creating this.
Last but not least, if you’re an Apple freak then Secret Gardens of the City of London will shortly be out on the Apple Store / iBooks along with other top retailers such as Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Smashwords and more.
Then this morning I checked the Independent Newspaper website and found out that a pitch I wrote a few weeks ago has been for almost a day the Main Feature in the Travel Section

Obviously quite thrilled to have a modicum of success and I haven’t been a number 1 best-seller for a few years so that is nice.
Whilst I am here, the tour that all of this is based on is the number one off-beat London Experience on Trip Advisor/Viator and you can book it from the main sites or directly through me at https://yeoldeenglandtours.co.uk/our-tours-2/london-tours/secret-sanctuary-gardens-walk/
Strange that the government still won’t help the 3 million #ExcludedUK people like myself as we are seen as fraudsters and not viable but then my teachers were sexist and wouldn’t let me study history or journalism and I think I proved them wrong.
Also interesting that government minister Jacob Rees-Mogg who has done nothing to help us wrote his own book in 2019 and despite his £200 million wealth and high status, his booked flopped at ‘only’ 719 sales. Maybe he is just jealous. As Mama used to say, money can’t buy class.
Whether you’re a government minister (I’ve had a few), a backpacker or anyone in between, if you want the best tour of London you know it’s with myself and my team at Ye Olde England Tours.
As it happened a few hours later I checked and I had two books in the Top 5. This must be what it is like to be like The Beatles with multiple entries in the charts. I have their lockdown hair but sadly not the money!
