My “Walk with Me in Turkey” eBook came out today after 1.5 years of working on it. I started by doing photo essays for “Digital Journal” of places I visited and photographed in Turkey (thanks so much to Editor David Silverberg). One of my photo essays, “Faces of Turkey” even won an award. Thanks to my friend and editor Jeremy Gotwals of Holon Publishing, who helped design the eBook’s cover using one of my photos, my book is now available in Kindle format. If you don’t have a Kindle reader, you can download a free one for your computer, smart phone, or tablet. For only $2.99 you can see the beautiful, historic places of Turkey, read about their culture and food, and enjoy my adventure stories! What a lot of work (sigh). Hope I find some readers 🙂
Here’s the official book summary:
Walk with me through ancient temples, churches, castles, mosques, and palaces of Turkey where I spent 2.5 years teaching English and exploring that beautiful country. I learned the language and culture and even married into a Turkish family. Stand with me at the spot where key battles defended the land from invaders and where Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey, was buried. See archeology opportunities with Greek and Roman columns and tunnels directly at your feet. Tour Istanbul, a city built on 7 hills and divided by a waterway that separates Europe from Asia. Get caught in the rain by the Black Sea, feast on shish kabob in Kocaeli, dance the horon at a Turkish wedding, explore Kar Tepe’s mountain forest, and swim in the Mediterranean Sea. With my vivid photos and stories, you’ll feel as though you walked in Turkey with me.
Since it costs so much to print so many color photos, my book will probably remain in electronic format (with links to other Internet sites for more information). Let me know if you enjoy it! Find it here.
