Big Announcements!

Big announcement time! 

First: arriving in April, I will launch a new e-book called "Moving to Myanmar." 

Its purpose is to serve as a stepping-stone for the information-deprived expat about to move to Myanmar.  The book is jammed packed with resources about what to expect when moving here, including top-tips from current Myanmar expats and local Myanmar people.  As we know, it’s still difficult for prospective residents to get information about Yangon. There’s relatively little available online. 

The book will not replace any of the fabulous guide books already out there on Myanmar, nor will it replace the go-to guide for the already arrived expat, The Golden Guide. It’s a simple book to help people know where they can access all the information they need while I walk them through the “mentally preparing to move” stage, continuing on to the first six-12 months of living here. 

At the end of each chapter, there are self-helpy type exercises to help expats process their present experience: the aim is to create strategies for dealing with all that is involved when moving abroad.  But really, the book is all about letting people know they are not alone.

I'm excited about the launch of the book and am grateful for the many individuals who have already participated to help make it possible. 

My second announcement is that I will soon offer a newsletter that you can sign-up for. When you sign-up there will be some fun little goodies for you...and if you're super nice, maybe even some excerpts from the forthcoming e-book.  The goodies are especially for expats and I cannot express how excited I am for you to see them. They are lovely and beautiful. I have the talented Jane Bell Lassiter from Virgina, USA to thank for her gorgeous design. That's all I'm saying for now!

Thank for all of your support. :-)


  1. Becky, that's wonderful! I'm so happy for you!

  2. Becky, this is just so great! I don't know where you get all that energy! I can imagine many people will really benefit from your e-book. My husband and I lived overseas for a while years ago and I would have loved having a resource like that.


  3. Becky,
    I am just amazed at the things you have achieved since our first cyber connection...just a few months ago. Congratulations! I believe you have many books in you and this is just he beginning. I am SURE this will be helpful to others.
    Keep writing and doing! June

  4. Such wonderful news Becky, I wish you well, I am sure it will be a great read. :)
