Firstly, a new chapter is up on Ming Zhu and The Pearl that Shines. Includes: recipe!

Secondly, THE SEA IS OURS has a Facebook page! Go, like, read, stuff! THE SEA IS OURS: Tales of Steampunk Southeast Asia.

Personally, the medication to combat this breast disease of mine is kicking my ass. The fatigue is enormous! If you want to help with the med fees (meds cause money), get my books. Or become a patreon for my Patreon. Note: new webserial.

So, that's my week at the moment.

Today is one of the not-so-good days, when one wakes up and feels… weak, defeated, weepy, tender.

But I submitted something.

And that’s good.

Chapter 23!.

Thank you to all who have supported me Patreon, read the chapters and gave me feedback!


I am going to take a Twitter hiatus, come 1st May. A much needed break, I guess, from the noise and static that is Twitter.

I wrote this on Twitter:

Sometimes, a breath of fresh air comes. The right book falls into your hand. The healing touch.

Savor it. Cherish it. Taste it. Store it for later use. Because things like this, things like synchronicity comes like aligned stars.

This one came when I was about to embark on hiatus. Look, I am not physically leaving you, Twitter. But you are a loud boorish friend.

I need my time in my forest, feet in the earth. And a time of healing, of re-growing. Like pruning and letting the leaves emerge once more.

So I am going to nibble at it, because like good soul food, you need to savor this slowly, thoughtfully. Real food for the soul.

Nevermind the junk food that comes with Twitter, with its unnecessary calories and deep fried aphorisms.

Oh the people yelling their food is better than other people’s food. But junk food is still junk good. Instant food is not good.

You get sick with the toxin build up. So, good food, good honest food is good.

I am going on a Twitter hiatus, as I have found that the noise on Twitter has flayed my nerves. Twitter is nice, but gosh, the noise is loud.

Not helpful for headspaces.

But I will still be updating DW and my Wordpress. And Tumblr.

Only keeping Twitter a barge-pole's length away from me for now.

Exam period, marking period.

You know the drill. Rinse, repeat.

Is up. Chapter Twenty two is the second last chapter of the novella.

It has been a few months of exhilaration and fun. My disease is now in remission, but recently I have discovered another smaller lump. The appointment to see the breast specialist has been made.

So, if you can, signal boost, read it and talk about it.

My publisher, Lantana Publishing, has launched their website!

And there is also Dragon Dancer, my picturebook!


Blurb for Dragon Dancer:

It is the eve of Chinese New Year. Lanterns are hung in the shopping malls of Singapore and Yao is preparing to wake the ancient sky dragon, Shen Long, from his year-long sleep. From the moment Shen Long opens his great amber eyes and unfurls his silver-blue tail, Yao will be propelled on a magical journey through the skies of Singapore to battle the bad luck of the previous year and usher in the good. Will he succeed? Will his grandfather watch over him and protect him from harm? A beautiful story of a Chinese festival and its symbolism for Chinese communities everywhere, told from the perspective of Yao, the dragon dancer.

It's available for pre-order!

Signal boost!
