fILE OF fACTS launches!

Today’s the day! 

Yes, it's flying out into the world at last. 

As a man from the north of England, I don't do wild excessive shouting and screaming, but I have done a happy dance around my desk. 

I've known the world of organisers and planner for many years. Like many people at the time, I started off with a Filofax and it's probably the brand that the general public has heard of. Of course, we all know the organiser world is bigger than that... 

Why did I write it? I wanted to give something back to the community where I've found such warm and enduring friendship. 

The whole editing, formatting and publishing process has been handled by my novel-writing wife, Alison, but I've been overwhelmed by the numbers of pre-orders she's been reporting to me everyday. 

If you've ordered in advance, especially for the ebook, I want to say a big 'thank you' for the faith you have in me. 

So, what's fILE OF fACTS about? Filofax is the great survivor that's turned into turned an indispensable cult
  • But how do you choose the size and the inserts from so many on offer?
  • How do you select the design to work best for you?
  • How does your Filofax fit into and enhance your life?
Whether you’re thinking of getting your first Filofax organiser, have just bought it or are a long-term user, this guide will help you get the best out of it, from the basics to the clever stuff.
  • Easy A-Z format
  • In-depth review of different designs (and their quirks!)
  • Secret features users might not suspect exist
  • Timeline of Filofax’s history through the last 100 years
  • Introduction to other leading manufacturers of organisers (Gillio, Van Der Spek)
Several years of pain, fun and experience are brought together in one book which will suit both new and established users.   

I hope you enjoy fILE OF fACTS. I loved writing it! When you’ve finished the book, I’d really appreciate it if you would post a few words of review on the site where you bought it. Reviews really help a book become more visible and I’d love more readers to get to know the world of organisers and planners in depth.
