I wanted to write a story that purely entertains people. There are not many characters in the story but as it is planned to be a short story, a few characters would do.
My first rule when I started to write the story about Cambodia, I wanted to present what was really happening in the country.
I created a female character that is smart and dare to plan and take thing she likes. It is not usually the case for Cambodian women. But you will have a lot of funs by following her journey to catch a rich man.
It is similar to Pretty Woman story if you want to have an idea what it is all about. It’s easy and an entertained story. You can’t take it seriously.
It is not the first version. I personally like my version. But to the audiences outside of the Cambodia, I believe this version would help them to better understand the contexts than my original one.
To get to this version, someone who lives abroad helped to edit the story. I should mention his name in the book but he said he didn’t want to. I respect his choice and I thank him a lot for his help.
I even went through and rewrite it over again and create a few more scenes that allow people who don’t know about Cambodian culture, to get a sense of what I am writing about.
Since I first published on my blog, the story received a lot of good feedback. Some people even expect the part 2 of the story. But I prefer to leave it this way. I don’t like the idea of Spiderman 1,2,3 etc.
I self-published the book on Amazon, if you’re curious and want to read something new about Cambodia, this fiction is very good for you. I thank in advance for your support.
