Something About Me and My Book:
I used to lead treks to the Everest Base camp and working with a group of Sherpas helped found the first hut system in Nepal in 1990. Present during the worst storm in Nepal's history, I was appalled at world press coverage of the foreigners who died with little mention of the Sherpas who also perished. I returned home to write their story. Beyond theSummit is the first work to dramatize their lives in fiction and give an intimate view of their culture and religion. I offer a slide show about the Sherpas and Everest region followed by an author signing.

My novel about the Sherpas of Everest has received 5 star reviews from everyone. A wonderful review was posted yesterday on amazon. One would think that with all these great reviews for the papeback editon I'd be able to get an agent to sell a hardback edition and other subisidary rights. That just isn't happening. Any suggestions?

Beyond the Summit.

First fiction about Sherpas of Nepal

Beyond the Summit is the first fiction about the Sherpas of Nepal .I used to lead treks to the Everest Base camp and know their culture well. The book has received 5 star reviews from everyone. All who read it say it's a movie waiting to be made because of the powerful love story between an American journalist and Sherpa guide, the exotic setting, the climbing scenes told through the eyes of the porters.

How do i bring this to the anttention fo anyone in the movie industry?

I definitely have to read your book, I have a friend who is originally from Nepal we lost contact his name is Shuny Bee we're both martial artist and actors etc hopefully I'll run in to him again he was a great guy. At any rate your book sounds very interesting, keep dreaming and writing.

I was reading your review from Amazon...It just seems that one thing does not do it...It is constant effort without out stopping. YOu know movie stars are only as good as their last movie...Good luck..I am going to look it up... We all need marketing ideas so we should keep them flowing...Carol Stanley

Hi Linda,

Regarding contacting film industry....if you think trying to get a BOOK published is hard... :-)

I'd suggest looking for films similar to yours...perhaps by searches on and contacting them about your book.

Good luck

Hi Linda

Very impressive "resume" you have. I worked for The Yak Works and Early WInters (which most people won't reconize but you might) and met a lot of the great climbers: Roskelly, Robbins, Messner, Whittaker.
(My main hero in the field was Bill Moss, though)

It looks like you might be able to either profit by or contribute to my new Self Publishing group here on BMN.
Please take a look, we're trying to build it into a resource for writers who prefer to be their own publisher.

Your story sounds beautiful but sad. I would love to do a trek like the one you lead some day.

I'm giving a talk on The Return on June 2 at the Estes Park library - either 2 or 3 p.m. I've asked Sandra to come. Maybe you could come with her and have your books with you, ready to sell? Can't promise many people will be there, but still, it would be nice to meet you. Still doesn't get you a movie deal, though. Margaret G
