Yawmyat Wa7da Q8ya Dathra is now a… Book!

By | April 27, 2011


If you are a Dathra fan then you will like what I have to say in this post. I would like to announce that Yawmyat Wa7da Q8ya Dathra is now a book! With copyrights and ISBN and everything!

I have not been postinlikg much lately because I was busy with editing the content of Yawmyat Wa7da Q8ya Dathra.If you follow me on Twitter then most likely you have been trying to translate some parts of it with me. Thank you my dear tweeps, without you I wouldn’t have been able to publish this book.

The book is available for paperback as if this moment on this website (link).

The book will be available for sale as an eBook soon. Also it needs a few weeks before it appears as an iBook and on Amazon.com, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they won’t reject it because its under review for these important resellers.

Oh and this is Volume I, Volume II is coming very soon.

So if you missed the early of Dathra or feel like reading it again, click here and add it to your shopping cart.

    6ule3ty mo hayna ya danderma! 😀

    alf mabrook.. 3o2bal ykoon NY times best seller!

    btw, i recommend you try and convince the owners of q80 bakeries/coffee shops/ice cream parlors to sell it at their store.

    or you can offer it to them for free.. let them try it out.. (owners and customers alike).. and if they like it, you can send them more copies to sell.

    if you try and sell it on amazon or online i doubt you will sell many copies.

    good luck :)

    • danderma says:

      loool Thank you! Allah yesm3 minik 😀

      hmmm now that’s a great idea! Let me see what i can do… thank you! I think ur right btw.

      • ilwawy says:

        another piece of advice.. do not print hundreds of copies of your book before you change the design. (keep exisitng copies as limited 1st ediditons.. they will sell big IF you make it big time :D)

        il methl ygool ‘dont judge a book by its cover’.. i am against this saying (to some extent).

        even if your book is the greatest thing since chocolate lava cakes, no one will pick it up from the counter next to the cashier (if you are ale to implement that idea) because they will not like the cover.

        use a more colorful design..a design that represents not only you but dathra as well. if you have to hire a designer..(or maybe you can have your father do the illustrations!) oh, and instead of plain words you should incorporate sketches as well. (i.e. something like diary of a wimpy kid.. but more mature)

        this is my advice to you.

        gooood luck!!!

        • danderma says:

          Lool imagine people scrambling in the future looking for the first edition with the duck cover :)

          Thank you so much for your feedback… I am going to incorporate them for my next book insha2 Allah

    Thank you loads, i have something to look up to now :)

    • danderma says:

      There is an ebook version now, just follow the link and choose the PDF option 😀

  13. nemo says:

  14. Jacqui says:

    Congrats babes! The second I read your email I got on the site and ordered one it should arrive next week when I’m in New York and I’ll grab it before I come back to KWT! I can’t wait, it would be awesome if you were to allow those who have already purchased your paperback book a free version of the eBook that way they can carry it on their electronic devices (just an idea).

    Also I’m so proud you are like our own personal “Girls of Riyadh” writer hehe 😛 Writing awesome stories about life for a girl in a Middle Eastern country. Can’t wait to see more bookshops selling your book!

    • danderma says:

      LoooL ur officially my 2nd buyer and the first buyer from the blogsphere :*
      Thank you for your support hon 😀

      Now that’s an idea… let me see if it’s possible to implement it!

  25. Kuweight 64 says:

    Congratulations ! This is truly wonderful. May your book become famous and sell lots of copies. Why don’t you contact the local newspapers about your book, so they can write an article about your book in the Arabic and English newspaper. Alternately, you can do a write up about your book and a picture of its cover and give to the local Newspapers, so they publish your write up or short article to bring more public awareness about the book. Also if you can contact That Al Salasil bookshop (Avenues) and Kuwait Bookshop (basement, Muthanna Complex) and other well known bookshops, if you can give them copies of your book to be placed there to sell; perhaps large posters of the book should be made and displayed in the entrance of these bookshops. Publicity is very important. I strongly recommend that you send an article or write up about your book to important newspapers in UAE and other Gulf countries . May Allah bless you.

    • danderma says:

      Thank you so much :)

      You have pretty good ideas, i am waiting to see if the book is approved for Amazon or not before i contact anyone… meanwhile i’ve ordered a few copies for Kuwait that i might distribute them some way or another, you have given me great ideas though, thank you for that 😀
