On Writing & Publishing – Adrian Sturrock

Last week, we met Adrian Sturrock, the man who wrote one of the funniest road trip memoirs I have ever read!

According to his bio, Adrian Sturrock is a writer, occasional musician, teacher, and ethnic minority (except, he claims, when in Wales). Adrian recently quit his job to follow his dreams, and last week, I asked him a few questions about how and why.

This time, he shares his wisdom on writing and self-publishing. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, Adrian – or diolch yn fawr – since by your own and your wife’s admission, you’re ‘A Welsh’!

If F.I.R.E (Financial Independence Retire Early) is your ambition, listen and learn: Adrian has some very thoughtful advice to share. Otherwise, just come along for the ride with the man who wrote one of the funniest road trip memoirs I have ever read!
