It is three years since Spice Islands was first published and it is time for a small celebration — with some bubbles!
In July 2011, I received the advance copies of Spice Islands.
Imagine the excitement of holding the results of so many years of effort in my hands — 200 pages of text with 50 color images — and thanks to Rosenberg Publishing for delivering such high production values.
The reviews were good and how could I forget Brian Geech from the Townsville Bulletin describing Spice Islands as a ‘triumph of passion and scholarship’.
The hardback first edition sold out last year and a second printing in paperback is now available. Spice Islands has also made the transition to e-books and is now available in Kindle and other formats.
It has been a great experience, it lead to the Spice Islands Sailing Adventures with SeaTrek Sailing Adventures and has allowed me to meet so many interesting people.
Congrats Ian, wonderful works and so happy to see this milestone reached – Travis
Congratulations Ian on all the hard work and commitment leading to success.
Congratulations Pak Ian – and keep on going – many other stories from the islands haven’t been told yet – or went forgotten at all!
