Since 2004 I have at Magic City Morning Star News published many photographic stories of my life and experiences in China. Between 2007 and 2010 I began to weave these stories into book form and in 2010 I published 19 chapters of that book. The story is entitled: 'Finding Myself in China' and is a personal reflection of the process of change that I have experienced in my life since I came to China.
After resigning from my position of Acting Editor of Magic City effective December 31st 2014 I removed the content of the original chapter pages and replaced them with 'excerpts' from various chapters. In January of 2016 I signed a contract with a publisher and hope that by the end of the year, 'Finding Myself in China' will be available for purchase.
In the process of organizing my book for publication I created a CHAPTER LINKS PAGE at Kingscalendar.com which lists all of the book's footnote links to stories at Kingscalendar. In due course on that page and also at Writers Journal FRONTPAGE Kingscalendar publication details for 'Finding Myself in China' will be made available.
