Yes, it’s coming: the most awesome book ever for dudes who want to rock some great hair without the Sex in the City-kinda crap (i.e. my 2nd book). I’m just about done and, as I reported recently on my previous article about this second hair book,I’ve written the whole manuscript and are just now providing the last retouches to the book.
For now, I intend to sell my second book as a hardcover only although I may change my mind and sell it on Kindle Amazon too; however, all I’m currently concentrating on is in having the book nailed to a T with regards to the hardcover formatting (from there onwards, the rest will flow naturally).
This being my second book, I’ve learnt even more about the whole writing and publishing of books as an author. With The Curly Hair Book, I learnt a lot about actually publishing a book and the experience was uber positive; as I was writing The Curly Hair Book, I too was working on this second book, so I was effectively writing 2 books at the same time, though my efforts were mainly put towards The Curly Hair Book during the last months prior to its launch.
Just wait until you see the new book cover I’ve come up with…
What’s new in this second book? Well, it’s more technical than The Curly Hair Book (despite the latter is quite technical by itself, especially for newcomers to the hair-care arena), and, in this second book, I talk about my hair-grooming and hair-care concepts in more depth, bringing you a more detailed version of my pioneering hair system that has allowed me to conveniently live with my annoyingly bushy curly hair for all these years and which has too been tested in all hair types (from straight hair to kinky hairafro-textured hair). What’s equally cooler is that this second book has each chapter been ended with a barbershop case study, byt which I link the content of the chapter that you’ve learnt to a real-life case study that has occurred in the barbershop of a good friend of mine who is a former professional barber. Thus, you’re getting both the theory technical side to your hair care and you’re seeing how it is put into practice too.
The Curly Hair Book is quite the motivational book, and I have a love crush on this first book of mine; I dedicate one whole chapter to the mental attitude that is needed to sport great-looking, convenient curly hair as a modern male, which already makes for some cool stories and analogies that I keep putting up throughout the book. That, plus all the technical stuff that is inside on hair grooming and hair care make The Curly Hair Book the one-and-only literary tool for curly hair men. Full stop. On the other hand, this second book of mine focuses more on detailing my hair system and having you create your own hair ID. Yes, you’ve read correctly: part of my hair-managing system is to have you putting you hair into an ID that is unique to you; from there onwards, you then customize your hair managing as per the book’s detailed concepts, methods and system. It’s one darn cool book I must say, and the lucky ones who have received pre-launch copies are loving it. I feel like a kid on a candy store as I want the launching date to come now!
This second book will be the same dimensions as The Curly Hair Book (so that’s 6.69″ x 9.61″, a pretty big book) and it will be slightly longer in number of pages than The Curly Hair Book (about 240 pages, which, if I use a generous format like most authors in the grooming field do to make their books look longer, my book then becomes 365 pages long!!). Needless to say, this is one huge mofo and it will be your 2013 tool to rock some awesome hair whether you have straight hair, curly hair, kinky hair, short hair, long hair or are balding. In fact, at the moment I’m in talks with a scientific journal on dermatology about double checking my facts on hair loss, that’s how much I’ve dug into the men’s hair care field with this book.
