New Book Cover - Watermelon is Life

I'm happy to display the new cover of my book, Watermelon is Life.  It's a wonderful illustration.  The road is actually a real picture of a dirt road in Namibia.  The wildlife in the background are all animals I saw while living and working there.  Finally, the backpacker standing on the road represents my wanderlust.  A very talented cover design artist, Clarrisa Yeo, put it together for me.  She stuck with the same theme of using silhouettes which was also used in my previous cover.

Watermelon is Life is the second book in my teacher travelogue series.  The book is about my experience as a volunteer teacher in rural Namibia.  I plan to donate some of the book's proceeds to the Unlock Foundation, an organization trying to bridge the learning gaps in rural areas in Africa. 

Currently, the manuscript is complete and undergoing revisions.  The book is expected to get published towards the end of the summer. :)
