My Book

Finally, the book is published and is available on Amazon. I have not received my copies yet. I am hoping and praying that the publishing company has done a good job with it. The cover is painted by my friend who lives in California. This is the home I grew up in until I went to Medical school, and came back there during holidays. I loved that home. LOVED IT. So many memories.

The book has many poems, many stories, some personal thoughts and true facts. But mostly my thoughts and my emotions of life there and life here. I hope you, my readers will find time to get a copy. It is now available on Amazon in paper back, hard cover and kindle editions. It is also in book stores like Barnes & Noble. As I told you above, I have not received my freebies yet. But they should be coming by the middle of next week. If anyone would like an autographed copy, I will consider it an honor to send it to you. I believe it costs about $14 per copy (paperback). Cheaper than my last book.

And if you buy one, I would greatly appreciate if you would write a review too on Amazon. Thank you.

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

      Thank you Mattie. It is not something I did in the recent past. I have been writing for many decades. The work in this book and my other book is only a portion of what I have written. Hopefully there may be another book in the future if health and body continue to have some energy.
