Detour - that's the title of my ebook (available here). I self published it, via Leanpub, on August 1, 2014, 11 years after my accident (coma and brain injury too) and almost 12 years after the completion of a two month bike trip across Canada. That's what the book is about. I have sold 68 copies ...

The summer isn't the best time to do this since people are on holidays, and not in front of their computers where they can see my tweets and Concussion Talk Facebook posts.
