Jill Dobbe | 14 comments Hi Linda,
I'd love to read and review your book. I lived in Egypt for two years and often traveled to the Sinai. The Bedouin people are of great interest to me and my home is filled with Bedouin arts and crafts. Your lifestyle and story sound very intriguing. If interested you can send a PDF or Nook to me at
I am also a Goodreads author of a travel memoir, HERE WE ARE & THERE WE GO: Teaching and Traveling With Kids in Tow if you are interested in a "review swap."
I look forward to hearing from you.

Linda Ruth Horowitz (lindaruthhorowitz) | 13 comments ....great to meet you Jill, and thanks so much for your interest in my novel. Brilliant; you've lived in Egypt and even been to Sinai... I will send the file/s to your email.

I read a few pages of your unique memoir on Amazon- raveling the world as a family is a university education; as a world traveler myself, I have met several traveling families through the years...always a pleasure to meet these kids who seem to have such open attitudes.

I would have loved to give you a review Jill, but at the moment, bogged down with deadlines and i'll be moving soon. So unfortunately, no time for reading any books just now.

Yet I can see you have many good reviews on Amazon; what would you say was your main source for receiving these reviews?

As a completely new customer on Amazon. i've only received one review until now... (2 months since publication)

Thanks again Jill. Best wishes, Linda

Vasant Davé (vasant_dave) | 13 comments My novel 'Trade winds to Meluhha' is a story of adventure, strife and love in two Bronze Age cultures, viz. Mesopotamia which is fairly well known, and Indus Valley which isn't. Based on historical and archaeological research, it might appeal to readers interested in the cultural heritage of the Middle East, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.

For details, please see

I would be happy to send you a PDF, Mobi or ePub file should you desire to read it and write an honest review.
