London book launch

I went up to London the other evening to attend the book launch at the British Museum of my brother's latest book - Mapping Jordan through Two Millennia - a book showing how travellers and scholars since Roman times have put together their maps of the land East of Jordan - a fairly erudite volume - he is after all a biblical scholar of some repute!

The book is published by Maney Publishing.

I have to confess that I had never before been to the British Museum. What an impressive place, and I have firmly resolved to return soon for a longer exploration. As a child I used to travel to London regularly to visit the Natural History Museum, but somehow never made it to the British Museum.

my book in progress

I have spent several years researching for my new book in progress - Ripples of Hope - offers a refreshingly new angle to the self-help genre by applying ancient spiritual wisdom to our daily activities - showing how healing our own behaviour rather than relying on government intervention is the real key to solving the world's seemingly intractable problems of climate change and violence that threaten our very existence.

At the end of this week I am off to the Winchester Writers Conference again - a superb forum for networking amongst like minded individuals, agents and publishers. It is an amazingly motivating experience to recharge an author's batteries, to obtain new ideas and stimulation and loads of mutual support. Perhaps I will see you there?
