An easy-to-read, easy-to-understand QuickStart Guide to getting started metal detecting
When I started metal detecting back in 2003, Facebook wasn’t really a thing for most people, and there were few places on the Internet to find any information about how to get started. Those came later, and I didn’t know anyone to talk to, so I looked for books on metal detecting for beginners, but couldn’t find any of those, either.
A dozen years later, I found myself still feeling like a newbie, but also beginning to have the confidence of experience under my belt. I saw beginners just like I had been, struggling to even know how to start, and it occurred to me that it was time: Time for a helpful guide that was general in nature so it included all potential locations, machines and types of hunting…but still brief enough to not be a daunting read. After all, no one wants to wade through a huge tome before getting out in the field to swing their detectors.
Since I’m a writer by trade, I realized I needed to apply the number one rule of authorship: Write the book you wish you could have read. And I needed to do it before I forgot what it was like to be a beginner.
So here it is: METAL DETECTING FOR BEGINNERS: 101 Things I Wish I’d Known When I Started. It’s a short 108 pages, with 9 illustrations for clarity, so you can dive in, devour it, and then get out there!
