From Paddington to Print

4 years ago thanks to Scott Kelby I met my best friend, Dave Clayton.

This Christmas though I’ve been completely blown away having opened the post, because in it were two copies of my book; the first printed copies I’ve ever seen BUT what’s more is that these two copies are EXTRA SPECIAL.

Unbeknown to me, Dave had arranged with the publishers (Peachpit) for a SPECIAL EDITION run of just 2 to be printed with a different front cover – The Paddington to Print Edition.

Paddington Station is where we first met up; all arranged by Scott Kelby when he was over in the UK as he had a hunch we’d get on, and geez was he right.

This incredible gift from Dave is a landmark in our friendship; from meeting just 4 years ago to now my first ever book that he designed the front and rear covers for.

Dave, I’m blown away that you’ve done this. I don’t know what to say and even if I did I couldn’t verbalise it sufficiently. All I know is that I am so incredibly blessed to have you as a friend; a best friend and with Aaron Blaise … my brothers from other mothers!

There’s an old saying of “You can choose your friends but you can’t choose your family” well, I beg to differ because my friends ARE my family and I couldn’t wish for better!

    Hey Glyn,

    I have had some really true good buddies like Dave, but sadly they have passed on now…. I miss them….It makes my day to hear of true friendship as you and Dave because I know what that friendship means.
