It's June and time for Act 2 of The Stars Call Me Home. This time, we will get a look at Ma He's background story.

Yes, I am experimenting with another space opera of a different feel and take from Starfang: Rise of the Clan. No werewolves this time, only political intrigue, (hopefully) big space battles, and interpersonal relationships.

If you like this concept, you can support me by reading it, signal boosting it or donating to my Patreon.

And I love the cover. Do you love the cover? :D

For people who are concerned about my previous posts about health:

The CT scan showed that it was just a fluid-filled cyst and my specialist didn't seem fussed about it, only slated another blood test (she's well-known for it amongst the nurses!) when I see her again in July. The blood test is to evaluate my liver functions. So basically ever since I came back from Perth, Australia, I had been exercising and watching what I eat. Gruelling and sometimes downright miserable-making for me - but it's paying off.

Just as well that my body past 40 seems to be rejecting/hating/disliking things gluten and dairy... which was a doozy for me because I love yoghurt and bread. But it seems that my colon doesn't appreciate a lot of it and even a tiny smidgeon triggers it to grumbling.

But hey, I feel fine at age 42.

So, that's the long and short about my health. Just give me lots of nice salads when you see me next time. :D

Unpopular opinion:

These people who keep on telling me that i am not a failure when i say that my books are not even on shelves are the ones who will signal boost other more popular (read: trad pub) authors and suck up to them. They will never signal boost my books.

I flew back from Swancon last Tuesday. Plane landed ahead of schedule. It was 4am. Spent a couple of days adjusting. It was a bit of a culture shock coming back to Singapore.

But Swancon has been awesome: nourishing to the soul and uplifting my spirits.

My birthday month was horrible (re: health issues). I am glad to see it go.

Now to focus on the positives:

1. Swancon.
2. Space opera about werewolves in space is going to be out by end of April.
3. Exercise, eat healthily, get body into shape.

Fast forward.

So, I have mild fatty liver and a 1cm lesion on my liver. Going in for a CT scan about two hours' time.

Positive, healing and good thoughts appreciated.

This has me totally strung=out and anxious.

This week in drama minggu ini…

Due to a drug allergy to the antibiotics,

I have rashes all over my body, the worst on my back, the most obvious on my upper arms.

***

On a happier note, I will be GoH at Swancon 42!

I turn 42.

Nature's given me a viral infection as a birthday present.

I am still alive. :D

I am still alive.

Fever went away, though I still feel weak/fatigued. Though I had to end up cleaning the house (sweeping, mopping, wiping) since nobody had the freaking initiative to help me when I was sick and unable to move. Well, at least, the layer of dust is gone (and we live next to a construction site, so imagine the amount of dust we get). (I am also annoyed that the said site has patches of water everywhere - and they keep on blaming homeowners for mosquito breeding, when the evidence is right there in front).

But... yeah. I am alive.

Update.

Well, I seem to have caught (suspected) dengue. So, basically from Tuesday, my body temperature went from high to low. At the moment, the panadol given by my doc is keeping the fever low and at bay. I am basically monitoring for other symptoms that might just pop up.

I pray that it's just another viral infection, not dengue, because dengue is awful.

:(

Still writing, in all levels of the word.

Werewolf space opera is going to go places.

Less brooding online. More swordwork, exercise, eat fresh.
