Introducing the Expat Women in Asia Anthology

More than a year ago, 86 female writers who are or have been expatriates in East Asia submitted personal stories for inclusion in an anthology of creative non-fiction from Signal 8 Press. I had the good fortune to read these stories of displacement, love, and adventure and to select 26 for publication in the collection.

How Does One Dress to Buy Dragonfruit? True Stories of Expat Women in Asia will be available in paperback and e-book formats on 10 June 2014. You can follow the Facebook page here.

Now, I'm proud to introduce the 26 writers whose words made me laugh, cry, and think a little deeper about the expat experience:

Neha Mehta
Barbara Craven
India Harris
Saffron Marchant
Coco Richter

I was honored to be able to work with these writers on their beautiful stories. I hope you'll take a look at their blogs and books.

Next, I'll unveil the cover design and share a few kind words about the anthology from some advance readers.
