Journeys Omnibus Edition Released

I’m pleased to announce the availability of a new ‘omnibus’ edition of the Journeys series. The new book combines all three of the Journeys books - Journey to Angkor, Journey to Rai-Lay and Journey’s End - into a single ebook file. If you haven’t yet read the series, this is a great way to pick up all three books at a reduced price. You can purchase it from Amazonor directly from me in ePub or Kindle formats for US$6.

The Journey Is Almost Ending

[caption id="attachment_640” align="alignright” width="214” caption="Journey’s End Cover (final)"][/caption]  Yes, friends, the “Journeys” series is almost at an end. I finished the third and final book, Journey’s End a few weeks ago and it’s now available for purchase from Smashwords and Amazon (see the book page for links). To celebrate this achievement, and for those of you who haven’t read one or both of the first two books, I’m offering them at Smashwords for 50% off for the rest of this month.

Get Your Free Copy of Journey to Rai-Lay

A little over a week ago I got started on the third and final book in my “Journey” series, which will be called Journey’s End. I’m probably about a quarter of the way through it already, and I’m pleased with how it’s going so far. This story brings Piero and Plai from Journey to Angkor together with Henry and Kung from Journey to Rai-Lay for a grand adventure. The book will probably be published around the start of next year, if the writing continues to go well.

Background: Thai/Siamese Names

I was talking about my latest work-in-progress, “Claiming David” (as I’m now calling it), over at Goodreads, and a comment from another poster led me to think maybe I should give some background on Thai names - and more importantly, nicknames - for those unfamiliar with the culture and history of the country formerly known as Siam. Like people almost everywhere in the world, Thais have given names and family names.

Now Available From Amazon!

All three of my books are now available from Amazon (US, UK and Germany). They’re only available in Kindle format, of course, but if you purchase from Amazon, then the books are delivered seamlessly to your Kindle reader(s), which I find very convenient. The books, with links to the Amazon pages, are shown in the box below. Amazon.com Widgets

Background: James Brooke

[caption id="attachment_24” align="alignright” width="200” caption="Sir James Brooke”][/caption] I just finished the first draft of the sequel to Journey to Angkor, which hopefully means I’m only a month or two away from publishing it. So, I thought it might be interesting to give you some background on the one historical figure I’ve used in this next book. I first encountered James Brooke when I visited Kuching in Sarawak, Malaysia, where he was the first “White Rajah” of Sarawak.
