A Beginner’s Guide to Mindfulness – Marion McGeough



While I’m struggling to find time to produce the follow up to my first book Me & Gus on the Roof of the World, Marion, one of my more productive relatives, has released her 4th. This one is another of her popular “Beginner’s Guides” which readers around the world have found incredibly useful. It’s called, as you can see from the cover above, A Beginner’s Guide to Mindfulness. From what I can make out, with my limited understanding of such things due to having a bloke’s brain, mindfulness is about finding peace through living in the moment. It explains that better than I can with a step-by-step guide to break it all down and has meditations and all sorts within its electronic covers. Check it out.

It’s available on Kindle for free for the next day or two so get downloading.

See ya!

Shoden by Marion McGeough (free ebook)


Shoden: The Definitive Guide to First Degree Reiki

Shoden: The Definitive Guide to First Degree Reiki

You might wonder if my true identity as the real Santa Claus is revealed by the free stuff I give away – and don’t you dare pretend you don’t believe in Santa! You might also wonder what this author has on me that I would keep advertising her work: ah it’s family, what can you do? I help out with the editing so any mistakes are down to me.

So, as some of you may know, Marion McGeough is a Reiki Master/Teacher who has written a couple of books on chakras and crystals and runs The British Academy of Reiki.

Shoden: The definitive guide to first degree Reiki, is a how-to manual for her students taking the first step into Reiki, but she has added a lot more for anyone who is interested in the subject. There is the obvious information about empowerments, self-treatment and how to treat others – all with photos so you can learn the hand positions – but there are also meditation exercises and a section on mindfulness too. Check it out, it’s fascinating.

So here’s the deal: I’ve included links to it on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk, anyone else around the world just go to your local Amazon site and search for Marion McGeough in the Kindle store. In return all she asks is a review/link/mention…you know the score.

Download it soon because the  free offer ends in a few days.

If you don’t have an ereader don’t worry because the paperback should be published in the next few weeks.

1984 – Funniest Review


I decided that the time had come, I had to read George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four. I went to Amazon to order the paperback, that is strangely cheaper than the kindle version, and into the basket it went. Browsing through the reviews I noticed that there were some that were only one star. Now you’ve got to be pretty disappointed with a book to only give it one measly little star, so I had a read to see what the problem was. Just look at what I found, this had me in stitches:

“Do not buy this book if you’re expecting to find out anything at all about 1984, as this writer seems to have been living on a different planet.  I was trying to do a bit of research into the influence of New Wave on cross-over dance music in the Mid-Eighties, but I found “1984” a complete waste of time…  Jackson’s “Thriller”?(the soundtrack of the summer, and the biggest selling album of all-time) – not mentioned; Frankie Goes To Hollywood (their breakthrough year leading to world pop domination) – not a whisper; Style Council? (Not Paul Weller’s finest hour, but still an honest nod to the white soul roots of Mod culture) – you’d have thought they didn’t exist if you read this book.  Nik Kershaw? Ray Parker Junior? Sister Sledge?  Nope, nope nope.  Instead this man seems to have moped around in his room and at work, watching some kind of depressing news channel (was his remote broken?  This isn’t explained – but you’d have thought they’d have had MTV on at least one of the channels in his office).  Orwell completely fails to capture the uplifting vibe that was the pop explosion of the summer of ’84…  maybe he lived in Norwood.  0 Stars.
Oh, and don’t read “the Road to Wigan Pier” either, as we drove around for ages last August Bank Holiday before asking a traffic warden, who said that the sea was about 30 miles away, by which time it was too late.  I don’t think Orwell had actually ever been to Wigan.  What does he do – just sit in his room making this stuff up for kicks or something?  0 stars also.”

Great Reviews

It seems a few of you actually enjoyed reading my book Me & Gus on the Roof of the World, so much in fact that they have left some really great reviews on Amazon which I’ve put on my testimonials page just to show off. Here are some of the latest ones:

Brilliant, I couldn’t put it down!

I literally couldn’t put this book down. Whenever I had a spare moment, I found myself reading with anticipation to find out what happened next. Me and Gus on the Roof of the World is Danny Breslin’s first person account of a truly unforgettable trip of a lifetime to the Himalayas. Unexpectedly, much of the “unforgettable” “trip of a lifetime” parts of the story come from Danny’s experience with falling seriously ill with altitude sickness and eventually overcoming it. Firstly, I really enjoyed the story. And wow, what a story it is! Danny takes you right there along with him on his amazing journey, from the initial suggestion of the trip all the way through the planning, the excitement, the nerves, the travel, the arrival, the people, the emotions and the experiences, to the sickness, the delirium, the paranoia, and the hospitals. It really is a remarkable story, and reading it makes you realise how lucky Danny is to be here today to tell it! Mostly I enjoyed the way Danny told his story. He is such an excellent story-teller that for the best part of the book I honestly felt like we were mates, and he was telling me face to face over a pint and a packet of crisps in the pub. He is also incredibly funny. I lost count of the number of times I chuckled out loud. What was particularly impressive is that Danny’s humour never wavered neither in his story-telling nor evidently during what was clearly a terrifying ordeal. I would truly love to know what the “nagging nurse” made of him! I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed Me and Gus on the Roof of the World for so many reasons and I thoroughly recommend it. This book has a bit of everything; travel, trauma, tenderness, humour (actually it has a lot of humour) all told by a genuine, down-to-earth, all round top bloke. I know that altitude sickness is no light matter, but thank you Danny for sharing your experiences in such a light, entertaining, and refreshing way. Gina4Star

Great Storytelling!

Danny is a great story teller! I felt like I was sitting on a stool in the pub listening to him tell his story real-time. He brings everyone to life and creates so clear of a visual you can actually see the adventure unfold. Though he easily could have died on this adventure, his humor never wavers.  He had me snickering and snorting throughout the book! Denise Hisey

Great read!!!!

Well what can you say, both amusing and touching, written with a vision which almost puts you with the author on his travels, you can almost visualise the scenarios (good job you can’t smell though). Looking forward to further tales. Pen Name


Not bad eh? So if you haven’t read it yet, then just pop along to your local Amazon site and download it to your e-reader, or tablet with the kindle app. If you are a complete Luddite and don’t have the sort of gadgetry I’m talking about then you are going to have to wait a few days until it comes out in paperback – see how good I am to you? In the meantime you can have a glance at the outline.

If you have already gone through it and you weren’t too disappointed with it then please give me a (kind) review on Amazon/Goodreads etc. or better yet tell your family, friends and followers about it with a blog post.

If you want to talk to me about this or anything then drop me an email: dannybreslin@mail.com – and keep it clean!

The Zombie, the Cat and Barack Obama


I noticed that an eBook I read recently is on offer: The Zombie, the Cat and Barack Obama by Christopher Antony Meade is FREE for a couple of days so get over to Amazon and start downloading. It is one of the funniest books around, I’m sure you will love it.

Here is the blurb about the book:

If you ever wondered about the ancestry of Barack Obama, how Osama Bin Laden really died, the secret of Area 51, or the origins of the Illuminati, read this book and then wonder no more.
The answers to all these questions are revealed here by Professor Christopher Antony Meade, (President of the Ancient Society of Secret Historians).
Few books you read will be so enlightening or amusing.
It’s not so much “the truth is out there” as “the truth is in here”.

And here is the review I wrote for Amazon:

…and nothing but the truth?

The Zombie, the Cat, and Barack Obama is the funniest thing I have read for a long time.
So you want to know the truth? Christopher Antony Meade has finally lifted the veil on some of the most intensely debated conspiracies around.
Thanks to his pioneering investigations we now know the truth of the American President’s past, what is really hidden in Area 51, the beginnings of the Illuminati, what drove Hitler to sanction the committing of atrocities and more.
I have to warn you though: do not read this book in a public place because when you suddenly laugh out loud, as you undoubtedly will, you could be deemed insane by those around you and shunned.
I loved this book, the writer has talent, an eye for detail and a superb and at times bizarre sense of humour that had me in turns giggling like a fool and gaping at the page with my jaw hanging slack. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommended.
The truth is out there – way, way out there!

Get The Zombie, the Cat and Barack Obama for free today from Amazon.com, Amazon UK or your local Amazon site.
