    Friends have them for sale in Sosua, Punta Cana and the capital.

    Matilda, your book is a must have for anybody considering a move to the DR. I am so amazed at how much you know about the Dominican culture. You describe the good and the bad about everyday living, you don't sugar coat it, you tell it like it is.

    Another update.

    Official review of the book on onlinebookclub here

    Official Review: What About Your Saucepans? • View topic • Book & Reading Discussion Forum

    And a video interview with me here

    Escape the Rat Race to Pursue a Dream

    Please note I had no idea the interview would be videoed or recorded - had just got out of the shower and so didn't instruct people in house to keep quiet and out of sight. You can hear Chivirico singing outside, and, even worse, you can see Hector without his shirt on mopping behind me (at just over 10 minutes)!

    Just watched the video, brought the book back to me, as well as the experiences; you did a great job in the interview. Bravo!

    The book is selling well, with over 50 five star reviews on line. To be honest, I had no idea so much was involved in the marketing, and most of it is now done on line so here is the latest update.

    1. For those of you who haven't bought the book but want an idea of what it is like, you can read excerpts here: What about your saucepans. This site also has a glossary of the main terms used, for those of you who read the book and want more information, plus some FAQs. If anyone has any questions having read the book then let me know and I will include them in the FAQ.

    2. The book is also on goodreads at What about Your Saucepans? by Lindsay De Feliz - Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists so anyone who is a member there, please review or say you want to read it!

    3. I have had an interview published here Lindsay's deep diving and this site also has a great expat writing competition where you can win 1,500 euros so well worth entering.

    4. Another interview here, with Aunt Clara on her Dominican cooking site My Dominican food: Lindsay de Féliz - writer - Dominican Cooking

    There are more interviews and articles in the pipeline. Thanks to all of you who have bought it so far!

    Matilda, i bought the book on saturday, and i can say this, in all candor; in all my many years on this planet, i have never read anything as wonderful as this book. i am only up to chapter 2, because i have a visiting friend, who will be here for a week. as soon as he returns to the states, i am taking a trip away from home, so i can finish reading it without any distractions.

    i cannot thank you enough. this deserves to be an international bestseller. with the correct exposure, it would be.

    Excellent interview. Of the abundance of life lessons you have shared, knowing you are in charge of your own happiness is sage advice for sure. Well done.

    It's a great book and hard to put down. I read it in one day a couple of months ago. I'm now hoping and waiting for a What about yours Saucepans 2.

    I have to say that I honestly admire you, Matilda. I can't imagine anyone going through everything you went through and still loving this country.

    Hi Lindsey. It's clear from your interview why you had success in the UK and why you've been able to make a comeback now. I agree, you are a natural storyteller. It is a skill that is underrated. My family and I will be setting up tent in the DR this coming February. You're storytelling is an ongoing inspiration to my wife. She says that the only serious friendship that she's looking forward to developing is the one with you (: Stay tuned, as we will, and keep up the good work.
