Performance Paragliding – Efficiency (job done!)

After a few more night sessions, I completed a cycle started about 5 years ago: it started by writing a book about how to perform in paragliding, in French. I put on paper a large part of my knowledge and experiences in that area. Then started the long journey to get this book translated to English and published. Now the job is done. 

Performance Paragliding – Volume 2

The second volume of Performance Paragliding is now available both as an ebook from Amazon Kindle store or a printed book on the regular Amazon webstore. Just in time for you to be efficient in the next SuperFinal! And in case you liked the book, do not hesitate to send some stars with your appreciation on Amazon product page.

Performance Paragliding – Preparation (Paperback Edition)

Yippee! The first volume of Performance Paragliding – Preparation, is now available in paperback edition. Thanks René and Alex. By looking for a solution for you German readers, I could find a solution for all potential readers!

Sometimes you end where you should have started. I was so focused on publishing an e-book to avoid physical issues that I neglected options. With the major one lying exactly in front of me: Amazon Direct Publishing. I might promote a bit too much their services these times, but this particular one makes a difference for authors: you can publish a paperback edition, worldwide, with no minimum copies to print, at a material cost of about 3 Euros per copy and a distribution margin of 40%. All in all, very attractive for modest authors.

I will see if, like it is possible for the e-book, I can upgrade the content of the book. I could add pictures to make it look nicer and more colorful. Anyway, even though pictures could make it more enjoyable, I hope you will learn from the text, or find sensible questions to ask yourself about your practice. On paper!

First volume of Performance Paragliding is out!

First things first: let me wish you all the best you deserve for 2019.

I have not published much recently, but let’s have a good start for the new year. As a matter of fact, i have a good feeling about what 2019 will bring. 

Performance Paragliding

Here is the reason why I feel so good (well, sure, there are others, but that is not the topic here): the first volume of Performance Paragliding is now available as an ebook from Amazon Kindle store

We have a new title, and sub-titles!

Performance Paragliding

Aligning planets is not something you can decide to, but only observe. Tough call to find a consensus out of the short poll. Nevertheless, the first result on titles for the English version of « Parapente Performance » is unexpected and outstanding: swapping words of the initially planned title is a must. As in military and flying action, best strategy in litterature does not survive the first minute of engagement. Thanks a lot for your feedback. As well, I should have thought of a « native English speaker » checkbox in the poll, but readers will be from all over the world, won’t they? 😀
