Last night was a big night for me. After all this time, my novel South China Morning Blues has finally been published!
So I crossed the border to go the offices of Blacksmith Books in Hong Kong to get some books. Always enjoy visiting there. I now have dozens and dozens of hard copies, which I took with me across the border to Shenzhen in the mainland (so heavy that the wheels on my suitcase broke!) and a new era of promotion begins.
There’s a sort of book tour in the PRD on, with books to be available at various events in Shenzhen, as well as Guangzhou. You kind of have to do it all yourself in China. Eventually I’ll make it up to Shanghai and Beijing. Down in Hong Kong, it’s more official at proper bookstores…
With my dream coming true, and it is rather surreal, just thought I’d share some pictures:
And that’s that. Now on to encouraging people to actually read it and get something literary out of these stories!
