Books are arriving + Please leave a review!

Hi everyone, exciting news!!

The books are finally starting to arrive! Please expect your copy to arrive sometime during the next week and a half (depending on where you live). I am so excited and relieved. Thank you so much for the trust you’ve given to me and this book when it was crowdfunding last year. No words can express my appreciation.

Just one last request (well, a second last thing; a new crowdfunder will happen soon):

If you enjoy The Carpet Merchant Vol I, please leave a review/rating on Goodreads and/or Amazon! 



Leaving a review/rating is a free way for everyone to help the book rise the ranks and allow potential new readers to discover the book.

Another way to help the book is to introduce it to your local library! And to anyone else in your life who you think will enjoy the book too. 

There is no pressure anyway. I am just grateful that everyone has been so supportive already. Thank you so so much regardless.

Hope you enjoy your copy!

Feel free to tag me on social media (@reimenayee) with pictures or to email me (

With much love, and lots of gratitude,

Congratulations, Reimena! :) It's such a beautiful project, and I'm looking forward to reading it along with your research notes! Has the ebook edition already been sent out to backers? I seem to have missed the email with the link!
