Through out the process of interviewing, researching and writing, you have to take all the helpful advice you can get. I would like to especially thank Professor Lisa Ohlen Harris for her advice and feedback this month regarding the publishing world and for her support to Voices of Jordan. Lisa is also the author of two books: The Fifth Season: A Daughter-in-Law's Memoir of Caregiving and Through the Veil (a Middle East memoir). I'm happy to announce that I've completed all interviews for the first three chapters and plan on completing the three chapters with accompanied photos by the end of May. Salah Malkawi (the photographer for VOJ) and I visited Wafa Bani Mustafa last week in Jerash and spent the day with her. Wafa is one of the three characters featured in the book. I am grateful for all the time and access that all three characters have provided me while working on this book. Next month we begin hearing from foundations and institutions that we applied to for support. We hope that by the end of May, we will also have a full book proposal and query letter ready to be sent to publishers before we move forward with the rest of the chapters.
