Burqalicious in Bali…

Huge thanks to my friend Trevor here, who made a fabulous host at the Burqalicious - The Dubai Diaries Q&A night in Ubud last week. And yes, it was last week, in case you were thinking this photo has a 1978 sort of quality to it. Not sure what happened there... my dress wasn't even blue, but hey, it only goes to show how much we had to put up with before the world went digital. If you're heading to...Read More

Just got this lovely piece of news, which is very cool. Burqalicious - The Dubai Diaries is number two in the Apple iBookstore charts! YAY! But wouldn't it be awesome to get it to number one?! OK ya'll, if you haven't bought this book yet, now's the time to download it for the measly price of just 99c. Yes, that is LESS THAN A DOLLAR to read the nitty gritty life-changing events that took me over two years to write down....Read More

BurqAmerica….

So next Spring my book will be published in North America and Canada, thanks to a lovely little publisher’s called Skyhorse. How cute is that name? It reminds me of galloping ponies in the clouds, maybe even unicorns and Care Bears. I like it a lot. It wouldn’t be the same if it was called SkyTiger would it? That would just sound like a cheap airline. Or SkyRacoon, or SkyMillipede,… ugh. I think they picked the right name. Apparently I...Read More

Burqalicious in NW…

I haven't really seen too many reviews of my book... and who knows, maybe that's a good thing. But I was still quite excited when someone told me they'd seen one in this week's NW magazine. Before you say it, it's not really a review - as such - rather a mention. They haven't passed judgement or offered an opinion at all, like they have with Calling Romeo next to it. But still, they gave me half a star more...Read More

What’s Burqalicious in Russian?

Как удачливый я должен иметь книжное дело с российским издательством. That, according to my nifty oline translater thingy means, "How lucky I am to have a book deal with a Russian publishing house." Which I am. YAY! Of course, I'm VERY excited to see how it looks in such a.... such a... well, such an interesting language. It looks a bit like hieroglyphics really doesn't it? I'm especially intrigued to see how they'll translate the word 'Burqalicious', which doesn't actually...Read More

New or best selling…

I'm not entirely sure which category Burqalicious comes under, but thanks to my friend Suma for snapping this pic just now at Melbourne airport. Looks like the book is on major display there at Watermark. Hurrah! I have a feeling it probably comes more under 'new' than 'best selling' but meh, I'll take either ;-) This is good to see because I thought the book was only going to be on a big display throughout February, in Newslink. So I...Read More

To those who’ve ordered Burqalicious from Amazon…

There has apparently been a mistake. I’m sure the people behind Amazon are just really very busy, but hmmmm, according to the publishers at HarperCollins, Amazon do not have the right to distribute Burqalicious - The Dubai Diaries for at least six months, which is why those who have ordered it are being told it’s not yet in stock, and/or not yet available! Sorry folks. You might be waiting a while for the goods. The reason for this is that...Read More

Burqalicious Bonus! Deleted Pics…

So, here it is. The latest in my series of deleted entries! Not so much an entry, this one - more a series of photos that there wasn't room for in the book. If you haven't read it yet, GET CRACKING, but if you have, you can look at these along with the part about the Iransion, when Stacey and I set up camp unwittingly on an Iranian inventor's landing. Ah, memories. We stuck it out for a good four...Read More
