Where the Sun Rises…Kurdish Sun…

Hello,

I wanted to write about the title of my new novel Where the Sun Rises, and say that if or when you read the book you will know why I named the book this.

My reasons for naming the book this, are not what one would think straight away. After I named the book, I found out that the Kurdish flag had a sun in the middle of it! So, Where the Sun Rises can represent where the Kurdish people rose in the successful battle against ISIS in Kobane.

Also, after I named the book I found out that the Kurds have a website called the The Rising Sun, which represented their struggle for more autonomous regions, and how their nation is rising. To me, this was a sign that I had named the book the right title, for so many reasons.

Thanks for reading! Have a great day! 🙂
