Many of you will be aware that I hardly ever post anything on this blog which isn't related to perfume in some way, so I hope you'll forgive this rare deviation from Persolaise.com's usual path. A few years ago, I wrote a short children's book called The Pumpkin Seed and I've now decided it's time to make it available on Amazon (under my real name, Dariush Alavi). I won't describe it in any detail here - full info is available on the book's Amazon listings - but I will say that any kids who've read it (or have had it read to them) seem to have found it captivating. Indeed, a teacher at a local primary school has used it as a class text for several years, with great success.
It's available both as an e-book and a paperback. If you were able to find the time to buy it and read it - or, perhaps, recommend it to someone with young children - I would be indescribably grateful. To find the book on Amazon UK, please click here, and for the Amazon USA listing, please click here.
Thanks for reading this. I promise to return to scented matters in the next post.
