In 2011, I returned to Saipan after spending six months in China, Laos and Singapore! It was an adventure the memories of which will last a lifetime!
After following the adventure on my blog, a few people wanted it have it all in book format. So, I created a Kindle and Nook versions.
However, that wasn't enough! They wanted a paperback copy to carry around with them and to share with their friends who didn't have those "new-fangled" Kindles or Nooks.
Other people wanted it in paperback so they could re-live the adventure while relaxing on the beach or in the park away from radiation-emitting computer screens and technology. They simply wanted to enjoy immersing themselves in a fun story the old-fashioned way: by turning pages and feeling the weight of a real book in their hands.
Well, I can deny them (and you) no longer!
Therefore, as of just a few minutes ago, on the Amazon.com website (or directly from me), you can get the 340 fun-filled, fact-focussed, freedom-fostering pages of my 6-month Jamaican in China experience in Jamaican in China: Guess Who's Coming to Dim Sum, THE PAPERBACK BOOK!
HERE'S WHAT YOU GET:
340 PAGES! (THICK!) 7" x 10" SIZE! (HUGE!)
Your coffee-table awaits!
FULL COLOR PHOTOS!
OUTTAKES TOO RACY FOR PRIME-TIME
EMAILS FROM FANS & FOLLOWERS
(with tons of insights and world view explanations from my Chinese friends!)
THE 2009 ADVENTURE! "The Prequel"
(My first trip to China in 2009!)
BEAUTIFUL BACK COVER, TOO!!
(YES, I've thought of everything!)
IMPORTANT: Make sure you order the version you want. There is a color version (1) and a black & white version (2).
*Amazon price may vary
*FYI: Full color is so expensive to print that at Amazon's price of $49.99, I only make $5 profit from this price! So, you can order direct from Amazon's print-on-demand warehouse to add a few dollars to the author's pocket! (If that matters to you, of course!) :-) or order from me directly!
Who is Walt Goodridge?
"Once upon a time, there was a Jamaican civil engineer living in New York who hated his job, followed his
passion, started a sideline business publishing his own books, made enough money to quit his job, escaped the rat
race, ran off to a tropical island in the Pacific, and started a tourism business so he could give tours of the
island to pretty girls every day....and live a nomadpreneur's dream life."
