They Said... 'Magical, 'Powerful' & 'Original'!

The first reviews are in! Jump over to the Moments website and click on the Reviews page to take a look at the early reviews pouring in from a number of published/established authors (including the wonderful Shay Youngblood) as well as academics and editors.

Just yesterday I received the latest 'mini' review from the editor-in-chief of the Gulf Daily News. It's safe to admit that I'm quite pleased with the feedback I've gotten so far on Moments and I hope there will be more to come.

It seems that the launch of Moments will be pushed back a couple of weeks to early September. That's because I'm told August is a really bad time to launch anything here in Bahrain.

I met Nijad, my publisher, again yesterday and had another positive meeting. The book is just about all ready now. The other day, I received my ISBN from the Publications Directorate, along with a publishing license (which you apparently need to publish anything in this country).

The final touches are being made on the cover designs and manuscript. More updates here.
