I’m Officially an Author!!

Greetings friends, family, backers and supporters!

We did it! The books are here!  Here’s a short 5-minute sneak peak into the book and the latest from this wild ride of an indie author/papa/gypsy family book tour prep:

I hope you enjoyed the video! Here’s a few more tidbits to this post and then it’s back to work on some serious video editing for the book & eBook—another 3AM work fest! But I see the light! It’s called April 25th when we’ll be ON THE ROAD!

Speaking of the road, I mentioned we needed some help on the ground in the cities we’re stopping in. I can’t do this all myself. So please, check out our route and tour itinerary at http://abicyclebuiltfortwobillion.com/family-book-tour-route and let anyone know up on the route the gypsy family is on our way to their town and would love to connect, ride and synergize.

We’ve got a few kickoff events to attend or share. I’ll be sharing photos, videos and stories—all family friendly good times here:

1) Kickoff Events in Santa Cruz!: We have 3 events in Santa Cruz to share with Bay Area Crew: http://bit.ly/cruz-events
2) San Luis Obispo is On!: We head out on the 25th of April to SLO and will do an event at Art’s Cyclery and SLO Library. Know anyone in SLO? Please send this link: http://bit.ly/slo-events
3) Ventura County: We’ll looking at some fun events planned with the KOA in Ventura and Channel Island University, http://bit.ly/ventura-events
4) San Diego: We’re working on this. Anyone lend a hand in finding some cool venues? Book shops, bike shops, libraries, schools, restaurants, etc. Love any help here.  Thanks!
5) then…Flagstaff/Phoenix/Sedona, Santa Fe/Taos, Austin/San Antonio, New Orleans…

Check out the new website! We launched a very tight, fun and functional site with the help of the great Jeff Nichols. It’s got book info, events, media, book tour stops and so much more and it’s too cool. www.aBicycleBuiltForTwoBillion.com.

Photo Update: We made a creative, strategical decision to go with nearly 200 black and white photos placed at the end of each chapter vs. the planned 30-40 color photos placed in the center of the book. This will allow us to carry the exact books on the book tour that will be available to book buyers. This made more sense than having a special edition book that was not available for wholesalers. If you are upset or feel misled, please contact Jamie for a refund on pre-orders. But I know you’ll dig the layout.

That’s about it for now!  We’ve got tons of books coming and they will be on sale on Amazon + bookstores around the 28th.  Very excited!!

Book Reviews

“Bianchini’s A Bicycle Built for Two Billion is not about the bike. It’s a life odyssey of epic proportions. Few of us live from the heart. Jamie reminds us how.”   –– Les Stroud (Survivorman) Related

An exhilarating debut memoir that chronicles a fallen entrepreneur’s eight-year world tour on a tandem bike. Bianchini’s extraordinary chronicle begins with his often tumultuous childhood and showcases his enduring love of bicycle-riding. He sometimes felt overshadowed by his large extended Northern California family, which fractured when his parents divorced, but his outings on his bike

Once I started reading I just couldn’t put it down. The story ended up being so much more than I had expected…more engaging, more unpredictable, more emotional. Jamie shares his own life journey even as he shares a perspective of the world few of us get to see in any country let alone many across

Total Adventure “Even though I already had a connection to this book because I had met Jaimie and Garryck in Japan, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the writing and story layout was. I read 100 pages the first day, simply because I couldn’t put it down! Both then and now, Jaimie has reminded

Very pleasantly surprised with this book! Bianchini takes a big bite outta life in this adventure (and sometimes pays the price). His honesty is well, honest and his heart seems to be fixed in just the right place. This is definitely ‘feel good’ terrain but with a goal in mind. I highly recommend “A Bicycle
