Editing my Book for Publication
I started and finished the first 10 chapters in Sept-Oct 2014 and the last two chapters on my ministry in Ranau in the past 4 years were written just recently. I have asked for a price quotation from a publisher for 300, 500 or 1,000 copies. As it is in English, I will probably go for the lower number. Although my intended audience is worldwide, yet many things I wrote would be beneficial for Malay-speaking Christians, especially in East Malaysia. My instagram follower has asked me when I was going to do a translation to BM. I have to get the English version out first and perhaps next year I can focus on translating the 200-page long and 94,000-word book. It won't be easy as I am not good at translating so I might out-source to a professional who can do it for me at a fee. I realised how important it is to get things done. It's been 5 years. It's plenty of time to reflect on things. When I read the book again, there is little I want changed. I just put in about 25 photos to highlight the events and incidents that are significant and meaningful to me in the past 25 years of ministry for Christ's sake.
