The book is a memoir of my experiences in the security industry. There’s plenty to tell. Scams perpetrated by security agencies and guards. Intense confrontations with delinquents and work colleagues. Funny moments to make you laugh and frustrating moments that made me cry. And so on and so forth.
I received my first assignment as a security guard way back in 1999, and continued to work in the industry over the next few years. Between 2003 and 2008, I took a long break from security work but finally succumbed to financial pressure some time during the latter half of 2008, and once again mired myself in the industry. I have been working as a security guard (on an on-and-off basis) ever since.
A few years ago, I realised that it would be a shame if those stories were left to rot by the wayside of memory lane. So I started writing and those collected anecdotes became Guards Gone Wild!.
I sent the completed manuscript to 4 publishers based in Singapore on the 21st December, 2015. As of today, my manuscript has been rejected by all 4 publishers.
