This is a first for me – but my good friend, Gay Hendricks wrote me in as one of the main characters in his new book, “The First Rule of Ten: A Tenzing Norbu Mystery“. In the book, I’m portrayed as a “hacker sidekick” of Tenzing Norbu, the main character.
Gay is one of my primary mentors and one of my best friends. He’s written 34 other books and has built and sold more businesses than I’ve been able to keep track of.
Of course, I’m very flattered that Gay put main the book . Soon the second of three books will be coming out AND he’s currently negotiating to turn the book into a television series and wants me to play myself!
Who knows, maybe I have a future as a television actor?
“The First Rule of Ten” is a real a good read – especially if you want to escape from business for a little while!
You can get the Kindle version “The First Rule of Ten“ for only $0.99.
Here’s a short description of The First Rule of Ten:
“Don’t ignore intuitive tickles lest they reappear as sledgehammers.” That’s the first rule of Ten. Tenzing Norbu (“Ten” for short)-ex-monk and soon-to-be ex-cop-is a protagonist unique to our times. In The First Rule of Ten, the first installment in a three-book detective series, we meet this spiritual warrior who is singularly equipped, if not occasionally ill-equipped, as he takes on his first case as a private investigator in Los Angeles.
Growing up in a Tibetan Monastery, Ten dreamed of becoming a modern-day Sherlock Holmes. So when he was sent to Los Angeles to teach meditation, he joined the LAPD instead. But as the Buddha says, change is inevitable; and ten years later, everything is about to change-big-time-for Ten. One resignation from the police force, two bullet-wounds, three suspicious deaths, and a beautiful woman later, he quickly learns that whenever he breaks his first rule, mayhem follows.
Set in the modern-day streets and canyons of Los Angeles, The First Rule of Ten is at turns humorous, insightful, and riveting-a gripping mystery as well as a reflective, character-driven story with intriguing life-lessons for us all.
As an aside, here I am in an interview I did with Gay a couple years ago at the original Digital Cafe studio when Gay released his last book, “The Big Leap: Conquer Your Hidden Fear and Take Life to the Next Level”
