Would you like to be my co-writer/editor for Kinabalu Blog book?

Yes. You heard it right. I have been delaying (procrastinating) my book since the past few months as I am doing another project right now. And I think I can create a better book by offering you to be my co-writer cum editor, as I my English is not so good. (I got credit for my SPM English subject).

So, if you think you can work on your own, have a very good motivation on delayed gratification with good English grammar and command, then you may want to consider the offer.

My plan is very simple. A lot of my website and blog visitors found out that the free information here are precious. Some of the post are not available anywhere. (Try google “climbing Kinabalu sandals“. The first result most likely is mine)

So, I am planning to extract the best informative post from this blog, maybe around 50-100 posts and print it out as a book. You as a co-writer/editor will help me on the proofreading and editing the content. I am not keen on finding formal editorial services at this moment of time, as I am doing this for fun, and not so much for profit. Unless, I don’t have any choice.

We will then go to Lulu.com to get the book published. As a token of appreciation, the profits from the book will be shared among us.

Sounds really simple, eh?

If you think you can or know anybody is, drop me an email.

    Hi Ruhaizad,

    I will be in KK early next month on holiday and will be climbing Mt Kinabalu for the first time mid July.
    I have used your websites info to book my accommodation on the mountain, so I am familiar with your work.
    I would be happy to help with your project, however my grammar may not be up to scratch, however I have teenage boys who may be able to help as a english project for school.

    Ruhaizad, I am afraid i can’t help you as I am kind of busy with my work. If I do come across anyone who might be able to help you, will stongly recommend he/she to you. Cheers.

    but no commitment guaranteed. I shall ask my friends, if they are interested.

    Hi Bro,

    Thanks to your articles on Mount Kinabalu, my first trip was made so much easier.

    Am going again next month.

    I will be happy to be your proof reader and also try to contribute some of my experiences, not much though, on my climb up Mount Kinabalu.

    Carry on the good job.

    Hi! Ruhaizad,

    Thanks for letting me know. I’ll be glad to help you. So what’s the first step?

    Good Luck!

    Hi Ruhaizad,

    All the responses seemed to be very encouraging and supportive of your noble project. This should motivate you further and put you in a pole starting block. Keep it up.

    I have sent you an e-mail in response to your request.

    Hi. drizad,
    Helping you write the blog is my privilege. Am a qualified English tutor. Send me info on how I can get started.

  13. Marty

    Sure. Count me in. If not for your blog, I wouldn’t have gone this far and that prepared. Thank you again, Dr Izad. Just came back from KK. Descended from Mt K. on 8 June. What an experience!!! Can’t wait to share. Hope my strength in English can be of help too.

  14. Kamaruddin

    Hi Ruhaizad,

    The project is a great idea and what you have done thus far is great. Count me in and love to be part of something interesting.

    Make it a success. Regards

  15. Ghani

    I guess now you will have a pleasant headache Ruhaizad.. Judging from the number of positive responses offering helping hands for your project, you may have to crack your head a bit on how best you want to proceed with your project.

    Whatever it is, I believe you will make it a success as you are starting on a strong footing. It will be a privilege if I could be part of the project.

  16. David

    Hi Ruzaihad,

    It looks like you have plenty of keen editors so good luck with your book. I hope that I can return to Gunung Kinabalu again sometime – it is such a beautiful place.

    Have a great day

    Doc, do it wiki style. let anyone/everyone take apart your content and rewrite it.

    By the way, will this book be copyrighted or register under CC?

    Cheers Doc.

    Hi drizad,

    Looks like you have more than enough volunteers 😉 You could consider having a section in your book dedicated to people’s memories of KK whereby everyone who has volunteered to help here could contribute.

    I am an auditor by profession. Travel, literature & photography are hobbies and passions. I would love to help but regardless of who you choose, I am confident that the product will be excellent. Keep up the good work.

  21. Michelle

    Wow, a lot of support there, including pro ones. THis is really a great website. well done~! i wil help if you need any. However i only been to Mt K once. don’t know wat i can help .haha.

  22. Christine Jalleh

    Hi Drizad – I stumbled upon your blog looking for some info on KK to forward to my overseas friends. I’m a communications consultant / freelance writer who is also a frequent flyer 😉

    If you haven’t found a co-writer or editor yet, I’d love to work with you on your books. It’d be really fun to to help you promote Sabah to the world because I already have really close ties with Sarawak!

    @Christine: Thank you for your suggestion. At this moment, I have found my co-writer/editor. Maybe I will consider your offer for my next book project!
