Introducing the new title, Confessions of an Alcoholic Backpacker, an account of Ashley Moralee’s travels around the world whilst dealing with alcohol and drug abuse.
Living with addictions can be a wild ride as an off the beaten track world traveller. Even though life will chew you up and spit you out in the most horrendous ways, the randomness of not having a secure home mixed with the fuel of substance abuse will provide you with mind expanding life situations that make things more than a little interesting.
Here I have recorded some of my more brutal and unusual situations as a solo traveller struggling with addictions and give insight into the consequences that life entails. Also you will gain invaluable knowledge on some of the securities you need to take whilst living and hanging out with strangers in foreign lands, how to notice different street tricksters and understand some of the techniques they use to ensnare you.
I realised my 17 year long Journey that has seen me charging all over the planet on a rock and roll life style had to come to an end for my own survival. For years I literally did not know what the hell it would take. Nothing seemed to kill me or halt my destructive ways that was until I recently returned from the Far East and I want to share what I have learnt with you.

Although ShieldCrest’s authors are from all over the world and its eBook sales have always been available worldwide, the UK has always been the predominant market for sales of hard copies. One of the reasons is, of course, the cost of moving heavy paper around the world.
However, it has now established marketing and printing of its books in key locations throughout the world, including the USA. This makes it much more accessible to interested purchasers overseas who can obtain copies of ShieldCrest author’s books from local retailers with their books printed locally.
ShieldCrest is already established as the leading self-publisher for service, price and quality. This has largely been achieved because it publishes all its author’s books in-house and this move further secures its rapidly increasing dominant position in the market.
There will be a major announcement towards the end of the year of the company’s expansion into a new area of publishing so to ensure you don’t miss this and to keep up with all the company’s activities, its authors and new book releases make sure you add your email address and follow these announcements.
