New Year, Newly Published!

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.
