An Update on BC Publications
I have two announcements. First, Bridging Culture Publications on the BC website has information on my new novel _A Yankee in the Land of the Morning Calm. Here's the link to BC Publications
A Yankee in the Land of the Morning Calm_ is a short, concise book set in a time when dramatic events unfolded-- events that shaped Modern Korea and its people.
The book is reminiscent of the incredibly popular American Dime Novel of the late nineteenth century. In fact like a Dime Novel,_ A Yankee in the Land of the Morning Calm_ is first in a series of four books. Book Two and Three are currently works-in-progress. When the series is completed, a hard copy version of the collection will be available. In addition, the book series'’ 65-100 page format is designed for web-based eBook PDF downloading. A Yankee in the Land of the Morning Calm_ is available in an eBook version through my publisher. A Korean language translation is also underway!
Second Announcement: Coming Soon
I'm doing the final edits on my first eBook. Titled, _Coffee, Cars, and Corporations: Thoughts on Korean Business and Popular Culture_, the eBook was crafted as a primer, reference almanac, and social commentary, —both for those new to Korean business and to its seasoned veterans. More information will be forthcoming. Expect me to provide insights and cultural commentary on Status, Starbucks Korea, Korea's upmarket car industry, and the family management of Korean big business.
