For those of you who are enjoying the daily updates from the 2014 Brazil World Cup, you will be excited to learn that this is just the first part of a bigger project.
The ultimate goal is to turn the blog, (and my footballing life), into a BOOK entitled:
‘Benfica to Brazil.’
As the name suggests, the book will feature tales of my year following Lisbon-based super-club Benfica across Lisbon, Portugal and Europe, culminating in my attempts to watch them play in the Europa Cup Final in Torino, Italy.
There will also be tales of how I made my way into the Champions League Final between Atlético and Real Madrid.
The culmination will be, of course, my two months spent following the World Cup in Salvador and across Brazil, including stories from my time at the past two World Cups in South Africa and Germany.
The book will be coming out in around October 2014, with a marketing campaign launching soon after the World Cup ends.
TO STAY INFORMED OF THE BOOK’S PROGRESS AND EVENTUAL RELEASE, PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO THE FOLLOWING ADDRESS, WITH THE SUBJECT: ‘BOOK INFO’
You will then be kept up to date with all developments, and will have the first opportunity to acquire the book when it becomes available.
Enjoy the rest of the games!
