Hey, friends!

As you know, my first journey to Spain was 2015. Good thing, because the following year I had to face some very rough losses. Many of you know that I decided to write a book. Here it is!

Thanks for supporting my writing. My next book will be about Spain.

A paperback is available as well: Love and Loss in Cambodia: a memoir, by Debra Groves Harman

In 1994, Debra Groves Harman left the USA to travel to parts unknown, ending up in Cambodia. This is a story of love, loss--but most of all, resilience.

Yep. Me too. I just downloaded it.

Been to Cambodia twice but not in the 90s. 2004 was the first time.

Khmers Rouges still exert an unhealthy fascination on me.

Very much looking forward to reading it.

Thanks so much for purchasing my book. I'll be eager to know if you liked it. Please leave me a review on Amazon, okay?

When I arrived there in the early '90s, the KR were still very much active, and in fact a threat, as you'll read in the book.

Again, grateful.

Congratulations, Deb. Now that you have accomplished this momentous task, will you be going on camino or other long walk anytime soon? I am back on the trail after a year off to get my teeth fixed. I would love to meet up along the trail somewhere, but I suppose that your current priority is probably to get your everyday life in order again, then get some rest. All the best as you enjoy the summer.

Hey, everyone! Thanks SO much! My next book is going to focus on the Camino!

Sales on this current book are going really well, but I've only got three reviews and would love at least 20. If you purchase the Kindle, I'll mail you a paper copy. Thanks so much.

Deb

Very powerful book, Debrita. I submitted my review last night. Wishing you every success with your next one!
Bala--your review is remarkable, and I am so grateful. I puzzled over who wrote such a concise, well-written review, and then I did a little google reviewer research, to find that the reviewer had also purchased a few Camino items.

With a grateful heart, I logged on. And voila! It is you! Very kind of you to read so quickly and to take the time. Great thanks.

Wow, well done, Deb.

I just downloaded it to my phone, ready for a flight tomorrow. ☺🙏

Now deep breath, quiet time, and maybe a camino?
Funny you should suggest a camino! October I will fly into Madrid! I've got to renew my passport, and just planning a trip makes me smile, although commitments at home worry me a bit. I think home will be okay without me for two weeks! Grateful for your eyes on my manuscript. Some of your early comments on my drafts stayed with me as I wrote.

You are most welcome! I hope it helps promote the wide readership your book deserves.

I sat down to start reading it and I think I pretty much just kept right on going over the next few days until I finished. 😊 I'll be looking forward to your next one. I hope you are able to get back out on the Camino this fall. Ultreia y suseia.

Hi Deb,
I bought, read and enjoyed your book, but apparently I don't meet the eligibility requirements to post a review ☹ (spending $50 in last 12 months). I'm planning an October walk, too, likely Vasco del Interior with my 2 daughters.

C Clearly and Bala, thank you so much. VN, I read your posted review and am delighted. Nine 5-star reviews so far bodes very well. I'm so grateful.
