I would like to introduce you to my new novel entitled Nejim…….Nejim. The novel events took place in Baghdad, Iraq during the height of the Sadr City revolt of 2004. It describes in vivid details some of the historic accounts that took place in Baghdad during that year and events I was touched by throughout my life. But above all this novel is about unimaginable fictional magic and thrilling mystery of the old and new blended together in a very telling story.

I wrote the novel with clear description of the people and the culture that only an Iraqi would know. The novel has a distinct Iraqi folklore flavor that readers will find very enjoyable. It has authentic local mythology built into it highlighted by magic and mystery similar to that of the Tales of Thousand and One Nights but in a modern setting. It ties a thousand year old mystical tale to current Iraq and takes it even beyond, through series of mysterious but yet thrilling actions and horrific incidents. The unexplainable events make you wonder if such breathtaking wonders are still exist to this day in this old country.

The novel completed is about 70,000 words and consists of eighteen chapters. I wrote the novel with several hooks at the beginning which continued as thrilling mysteries all the way to the end. The novel is a must read to those who are interested in Iraq and the local culture. It describes in details places and events that are unique to this part of the world and to that period. Those who are genuinely love to read mystery novels with real authentic flavor will find it captivating and delightful at the same time.

The novel has just been published. It is available only at this website right now. Please order or reserve your copy and pass the word around. This is a short run first edition print and might be sold out very soon.

Best Regards
