My e-book (There & Now) available for pre-order #writing #china

A Naxi saying — that sounds a little like ‘tia hu pe la tcher’ — translates as ‘when you are happy, so very happy, every part of you is happy including the faeces inside you’

 

My novella-length creative non-fiction book, There & Now: a writer’s perspective on everyday life in South West China, is now available for pre-order for Kindle, for the very reasonable price of £2.39 (or $3.73 if you’re in the USA).

Published by Cargo, a lovely Scottish independent press, the collection mixes interviews, poetry, recipes, an unexpected camel and a trip up to the mountains to visit a Dongba shaman.

My book builds on the web app, Recollections: 12 vignettes from Lashihai,  Samantha and I released earlier in the summer so if you have an iPad and haven’t already taken advantage of the free-to-download version I suggest you check that one out first to set the scene as it has pictures…
