Piles of kebabs

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2006

About a week ago, my first book went to the printer. It’s called Women of the Gobi, a title that my publisher chose after I couldn’t come up with anything he liked better. I thought it would be a relief to finally be rid of the manuscript, but now I’m waking up in the middle of the night worrying about all the things that might be wrong with it, and it’s too late for any changes. I figure a blog is much less permanent than a book, and therefore less stressful.
Soon I’ll post a bit about the book, and you can be sure that as soon as there’s an Amazon link, I’ll have it up here. For now, check out pictures of last year’s trip to China that formed the basis of the book. Looking at the mounds of skewered sheep (and anything else that can be skewered) at the Urumqi night market is making me dribble into my keyboard. (There’s a publicity photo too, with my various blemishes artfully Photoshopped – thanks Dave!)
