What a way to start off 2006!
Firstly, in the space of a little over 48 hours, I had two travel essays accepted for a special edition travel guide!
My last minute submissions were kindly accepted by Celeste Heiter, the editor of a travel book focusing on Japan travel experiences, written by writers from around the world. As you all recall, I have visited Osaka, Japan, for four days last April. A trip of a lifetime it was!
My two contributions, ‘Song of the Nightingale’ and ‘Osaka’s Grand Vision’, will appear in To Asia with Love: A Connoisseur's Guide to Japan, a travel guide which will be published this spring by Things Asian Press.
Secondly, and more importantly, I will be involved in a major project here in Bahrain. A US production company is working on a unique educational and inspirational documentary film and I am proud to announce that I have been commissioned to write the companion book for it, or rather the extended book version of the film.
I am genuinely excited about this project and looking forward to working on it. I promise you more info and details regarding the documentary as well as the book itself. Within the next couple of weeks, there will be, hopefully, regular updates on its progress.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
