_ Publication of Perking the Pansies edges ever closer. After three consecutive late nights of last minute editing, the manuscript has finally gone off to the designer to produce the book for the launch on Amazon. It’s done and dusted. I can do no more. When the book’s released, it’ll join other illustrious publications on the virtual shelves of the Expat Bookshop. It’ll be in good company. The Expat Bookshop is the one stop shop for the best in expat writing. Take a look around the store. There might be something that takes your fancy.
