Book publishing update, and how this blog shall go from now on…

Sorry, no comics-related update this Monday. All finished. It’s a new month at that. A fine welcome to the warming season to you all.

Here I am with this post, and I’d like to briefly go over the future of the blog…

Life hasn’t been letting up, and there’s been a lot keeping me busy. I hope to focus my energies on upcoming writing projects, new fiction and a bit of journalism. Something’s gotta give, and now that I’ve completed my comics fandom I may have to take a break from regularly-scheduled themed postings.

There will be the occasional interesting update about my life, China-related and otherwise. Stay tuned for news of a certain disappointing convention in Guangzhou, for example.

Moreover, next month my novel South China Morning Blues will be published.in Hong Kong! Thanks to the good people at Blacksmith Books. I’m trying to play it cool, but in fact that is quite the dream come true. And with that will come endless self-promotion.

Prepare for forwards of reviews, pictures of me at literary events, and plenty of general getting-the-word-out. That’ll be my content for a while yet.

Hope you enjoy my tale of expat opera and postmodern locals. Happy summer. Don’t melt.

From Canton to Hong Kong, the booming megalopolis of the Pearl River Delta has endless stories to tell. Who finds themselves in rapidly changing 21st-century China? There’s Marco, a businessman with a penchant for call girls; Danny, a culture-shocked young traveler; Sheila, a local club girl caught up in family politics; Terry, an alcoholic journalist; and Ting Ting, an artist with a chip on her shoulder. Their lives intertwine in unexpected ways.

  1. “Prepare for forwards of reviews, pictures of me at literary events, and plenty of general getting-the-word-out. That’ll be my content for a while yet.” Doesn’t sound that bad, looking forward to those things as it is interesting to other getting their stuff done 🙂

  2. Amazing stuff. Congratulations. Finally living the dream. Enjoy it all, savour it, rub shoulders with famous people and milk it for all it’s worth. You have the right to forget us and be a superstar 😀
