My Year Without Lying

12 Oct

The philosopher Immanuel Kant said lying was always morally wrong – and I’m writing a book about my year without lying called, originally enough, “My Year Without Lying”.

In all honesty it’s been a mission getting the book into a publishable state. I loved the first draft, and thought it would be a shoe-in after all the media coverage I received. But alas the publishing world didn’t feel the same way, and with hindsight they weren’t entirely wrong. I’m rewriting it now – the publishers wanted “Yes Kant” after the success of “Yes Man,” but I want to be true to what the year was really about (without now boring the reader to death with my endless philosophical musings).
