A Book on the Way With My Name on it!

Some followers of Pickled Wings may also be aware of my other website, Beyond Prague, where I write about various aspects of living in the Czech Republic.

In Autmn of 2018, I was contacted by an editor of UK based Kuperard Publishers who told me they had seen the Beyond Prague website and liked the content and writing style. They offered me the opportunity to write the second edition of the Czech Republic volume of their “Culture Smart!” series of books. I’d never imagined writing a book in my life, but I didn’t say no to the chance.

Three years later, the writing and editing are done and the book has gone to the press. The realease date for the paperback edition is January of 2022 with the eBook edition to be releasesed in February of 2022. The book is available for pre-order here:

The purpose of the “Culture Smart!” books is to help reduce culture shock for people about to visit the various countries in the series.

Anyone who has ever visited the Czech Republic knows what a rewarding experience it can be.

If you’ve never visited the country, but are thinking about it, I hope you’ll consider buying this book and that it will be helpful to you.
