Pocket Routes is born!

My small portfolio of written work has increased gradually over the past few years, with two new guide books added last year, and plans to add another two this year. Until now, I’ve created and managed a website for each new publication, which was fine when there was only a couple, but is just not sustainable as more are added. The result is a consolidation of all my guides into one website: Pocket Routes

The new site is an online shop as well as a repository for information relating to each walk. Over time, I’m hoping to make the guide books more interactive and Chris Pilgrim and I have had many long discussions over the future of guide books in the digital age. Hopefully he can bring some of his ideas to Pocket Routes in the future. Over time I will retire the stand-alone websites and point them directly to Pocket Routes.

In the meantime, please pop over and have a look. Tell me what you think, and if you like what you see, tell your friends too!

    Any interest in turning these into a mobile app?

      That’s one of the possibilities I eluded to – Chris and I both have a desire to bring guide books into the 21st century and that’s one way of doing it.
