Of course, nothing of that would have happened without Ruth Ahmedzai Kemp. She is such a lovely person, full of energy and kindness. She hosted me in her beautiful house.
Ruth has been organizing this trip for a while now, setting up book signings and talks in 5 different UK cities: Cheltenham, Bristol, Oxford, Brighton and London. Ruth has also succeeded in setting us up for a radio interview in ShoutOut radio station in Bristol thank you Evan. Few months down the line, when I signed syirwani contract with Signal8Press to get the book in English, I hafoon who I should ask.
Gladly, she was on board.

But even then, I never anticipated that such tour would be in my horizon. I have to admit that I do enjoy doing all of the public relations activities: It is such a joy!
The process of writing a book is long, and it is not easy. It requires discipline and commitment.

It was the second step that would establish me as a writer. The topic itself was tricky, siding off gender and sexuality where I have all of the support and delving into speculative fiction of a story from the future. That has also happened at a time I was back to school for my MA. I remember when I was done with my degree and where back in Jordan looking for a job again. It was a tough period where I was too worried about the little savings that had left with me at the time, and not knowing what will come next.
I focused on the book, and even after I secured a job 3 months laterI still was committed to the book till I completed it in April It was a tough period as well as a month later I was moving to a job in Ajman in a totally new environment. I remember my first few days in Ajman sitting in a cafe at the cornish with the whole text printed out, reviewing every word and doing my last edits.
I sent the text to couple of them and was hoping, really hoping, that Dar Al Adab would show interest. On their website, they say that they have a committee of avid readers who assess submitted books and write a report accordingly. They told that they need 2 months to review it, and it took them 3. When the report hit my email, I was flying with joy! We then set a launch date in November, and now, a year after, I am more than happy with the reactions.
People has been loving it and acknowledging it as a quality work of speculative fiction that is rare in the arab world. I have also secured another publishing contract with Signal8Press to get the book out in English in early I hoped that Ruth will be with us on this project but she has a full plate of books to translate next year.
The year has been good to me in terms of my writing career. It is something that I will always remember. All of this is a reminder that I need to get back to the same discipline and commitment and continue working on my third book which I started early in the year.
Hard work do pay off, and I look forward to seeing what the years are hiding ahead. Fadi was much more organised than me afterwards and shared a great write-up on his blog, The Arab Observer. More information about the launch events we held […].
