Beijing Diary: Drilling Dialogues on Kindle Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Sun, May 18, 2014, 06:54 PM

BEIJING:  The Dallas Blog's Tom McGregor is proud to announce his first novel published on Amazon Kindle. McGregor is quoted as saying that, "It was a thrill to write my first novel in China since I can observe the country and its culture with closer examination. I hope that readers will get a better understanding of the real China."

According to Kindle, "In the novel, CEO Matthew Kim of Sino-Drillers, China’s largest privately-owned oil & gas company, intended to retire and announced his successor plans. Yet in a surprising development, he selected two executives to compete against each other for the leadership role. That’s when the sparks were flying as office politics drama and mayhem ensued …"

McGregor said, "Drilling Dialogues is more than a book about office politics drama in China. It's about love and heroism. We are not all heroes but we can strive to make the world a better place. The main theme for this book and future books I write will be about 'hope.'"

As reported by the Drilling Dialogues book Website, here's an excerpt of the first paragraph of the book, "Donald Wang, a 34-year-old business executive for China’s largest global oil & gas exploration corporation Sino-Drillers, was sitting in the weekly senior executives’ meeting on Friday afternoon. He sat in anxious anticipation for a grand announcement. The CEO of the corporation would disclose the selection for his successor. Donald had assumed he would be the chosen one. He had worked for Sino-Drillers ever since he graduated first in his class at Shanghai University with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management along with an MBA from Hong Kong University. He had risen from low-level management to the role of chief operating officer of the company. Well, that was to be expected from Donald, since he had garnered much success as a student and later on when climbing up the corporate ladder."
