E-book version of former Minister’s autobiography released

An autobiography of a former Government Minister is now available as an e-book.

The move to publish Dr Clarence Terceira’s ‘Tessi’s Highway — My Life’s Journey’ came after the print version was a virtual sell-out.

Kaleidoscope Media chief Chris Gibbons and creative director Corrina Rego, who provided design and print services for Dr Terceira, said it had always been intended to do a Kindle version of the book.

He added: “It’s now on Amazon.com so people can buy it there and hopefully it will give the book a much wider readership.”

Mr Gibbons said the print run of the book, which details Dr Terceira’s life on the Island, at university in Scotland and his long political career, had almost sold out on its print run of 500 copies.

He added: “That’s pretty decent for a Bermuda book — a lot of people have expressed an interest because Tessi is a real character, involved in a lot of things and has lead a fascinating life.”

The grandson of immigrants from the Azores, Dr Terceira qualified as a dentist and one of the founding members of the UBP in 1964, and later held various Ministerial portfolios, including Education, Health and Works and Engineering.

During his time as Works and Engineering Minister, he was responsible for the revamp of East Broadway, a notorious accident spot, into the dual carriageway it is today, which was dubbed Tessi’s Highway.
