Egyptians

 Images Covers Large 1402762429LSterling has a full listing for the Lost Worlds: Egyptians book I’m working on right now. It currently lists a different name for the author, but that should change soon I believe.

I’m having fun working on the book. Researching a subject and then writing all about it reminds me of writing papers in school. This time, though, I’m doing it for pay rather than a grade—and the end result will be much longer and read by many more people.

Do you have a favorite element of ancient Egypt you think I just have to include in a book like this? I’m open to all sorts of suggestions, especially if they make for fun reading.

  1. Having actually been to Egypt and picking up a bit of Arabic; it might be cool to see Arabic Numbers, how to count to ten, and perhaps “Thank You” and “You’re Welcome”

    It was a great experience, albeit for the Air Force but I got to see the pyramids and ride horses around them.

  3. That sounds amazing, Brian. The book, however, must concentrate on ancient Egypt. Back then, the people spoke Egyptian (now a dead language) not Arabic. Thanks for the thought though!

  5. It would have been amazing, if the road didnt go right up to them.

    I understand the language issue. Will see if I still have the books on Egypt I picked up while there.

  7. I have a 3500 year old Ushabti. I always found in fascinating that the Eqyptians believed that these objects would take their place if they were called upon by the Gods to serve. And, too, have wondered if the original owner ended up having to serve because of my ownership of his Ushabti. LOL 🙂

    If you would like to borrow it while you’re working on the book, I would be happy to oblige. Might be an inspiration to have something from ancient Egypt sitting on your desk.

    On a side note, I also own two Abyssinian cats, which are believed to be descendants of the cats of ancient Egypt. (Akhnaten Montana and Amenhotep Favre. Named for ancient egyptians and modern day football legends)

  9. Well, I’m not sure if they would be fun reading but looking into them egyptian unfortified cities might be rather interesting. Oh, and, the fact that the Pharaoh probably symbolized everyone’s immortality doesn’t seem to trivial either.

    Anyway. Good luck with the book!

  11. Thanks for the offer, Rob, but I wouldn’t want to take your Ushabti from you. At the moment, my deadline is inspiration enough. I love your cats’ names though.

    Thanks, Gnome, for the ideas. I’ll be sure to explore those.
