Exploring Our Exciting World Book Nine: East Asia is OUT!

Well, as promised, I am posting the release of the timely Volume 9 of the series Exploring Our Exciting World! Why is it timely? It features two areas which have recently been in the news due to disasters: Kathmandu, Nepal where a major earthquake and many aftershocks took thousands of lives and the Yangtze River in Southeast China where a cruise boat capsized killing nearly everyone on board. Both of these locales are in the book featuring the true adventures of Clayton and Anne Brannon who were there less than three years ago.

In all, five persons who visited East Asia including basically all sections of China and the SARs of Hong Kong and Macau, as well as Tibet, plus Nepal and Japan are here telling their true adventures plus things not learned unless a person actually visits this ancient and fascinating part of our Exciting World.

Below is a small excerpt from the writing of Emily Mahoney, one of the contributors, from an experience in Hong Kong in June 2014:

The tall buildings towered on either side, until we came out into a small courtyard type of area. The building on the right stopped and, around that corner, there was the entrance to a temple. Over a thousand years old, it was one of the oldest in the area and was still active. We were allowed to pause briefly to take a picture, but no longer, out of respect for the people. On the opposite side of the courtyard, there was a low door, just outside of which an old man sat smoking his pipe. He quietly watched us as we entered, paused, and continued on. The quiet scene was picturesque and felt almost homey, even though it was so very different from anywhere I have called home. I realized that this was indeed home for many, many people. The moment passed and we moved on.

Spring has sprung

Finally, after a terribly tough winter, it appears that spring has finally sprung. Outside we have only experienced liquid precipitation over the past few days and now the sun is smiling down pleasantly on Middle Tennessee.

I have been busily working on four new books at once. Vacation time is approaching and for anyone planning on traveling anywhere in the greater Southeastern US, anywhere from Louisiana to Washington, DC. my latest book, Exploring Our Wonderful World, Book I is a great carry-along tool to point you toward the best of the best spots to hit. If you like historical sites, this volume is loaded with them. If you frequent or would like to check out State and National Parks, so many are highlighted. There is even information on festivals and entertainment venues. A lot of places include driving directions. But best of all, it gives you an overview so you can see what you like as you travel or plan before visiting and map out your trip. I’m planning on taking it with us when we go to New Orleans, a place I have only visited once before.

So go to St. Clair Publications at stclairpublications.com or any Amazon site and get your copy today. I now will be taking all major credit cards at events and book signings as well. More on that later. Happy vacationing in 2015.
