Hey there, it's been a while. I've had a quiet little stint over here as things have settled (post USA Memory Championship win back in March and the XMT in April). But in other ways it's been incredibly busy on the book writing front.
For those of you who don't know, I sold my book (finally after trying for a few years) to National Geographic publishing and have been working on the manuscript furiously for the past 6 months. The title is still not 100% decided upon yet, but you can bet your bottom dollar that it will have some of the following words in it: remember, memory, and memorize. Just saying!
It's going to be a pure how-to book, i.e. how Nelson Dellis memorizes anything and everything. If that interests you, you can buy it March 6th, 2015. We've got an amazing artist doing all the illustrations (one of the reasons I chose Nat Geo as my publisher is because they were all on board with my desire for lots of pictures - after all memory is all about visuals and pictures), so this book is not only going to read great, it's going to look friggin' fabulous.
As for what's coming up in the next few months. Not quite sure. Right now I've only got my book on my mind. But, there will be a Kilimanjaro climb early 2015 as mentioned before. Information for that will be coming soon. I want all of you readers out there to come join me and climb for memory!
