It is with pride, excitement and a great deal of nervousness...that I let my loyal readers know that I've decided to self-publish my novel about Saudi Arabia, with the title A CARAVAN OF BRIDES. In the last year I hired a developmental editor and have been finalizing revisions ever since. Now I am searching for a copy editor and a book cover designer.
My goal is to have the book ready late this summer, on Kindle and hopefully other e-book platforms, as well as a small print run.
This book has been in the making for two decades. It started out as a series of short stories about my time living in Saudi Arabia, and it gradually morphed, through many iterations, into its current form, which is a multi-generational saga focused on the friendship between two Saudi women: a college graduate and an elderly storyteller.
Even writing this blog post seems to mark a milestone. So, as I proceed in the process I will keep you updated.
In the name of God the Merciful the Beneficent. May it begin!
