Tossing a question

Posted on my Tumblr.

But you can reply/comment, dear readers.

Strictly for The Rider Trilogy fans…

Inspired by this:

Strictly for fans and readers of The Rider Trilogy…might grow into a full-blown story… eventually.

Merry Christmas!


It was time. I pulled off the helmet, removed the rebreather, and tilted my face skywards. Sarah did the same: the rain wetted her radiant face filled with wonder and joy and relief. The sudden fresh air was a delight.

Beside us the machine pulsed: red-red-red.

We clasped our right hands, held together in timeless solidarity, standing face to face. We raised our faces to the sky. The rain came down, bathed us, bathed the parched earth. It turned the sand dark, stained it thoroughly like dark blood.

I can’t do this alone.

Reblogging it. Merry Christmas!

A Wolf's Tale

I can’t do this alone.

I think I have reached my proverbial limits when it comes to promotion and marketing my books. That includes the Rider Trilogy and the Jan Xu Adventures. The more I talk in on Twitter, the more indifference I get.

Oh yeah. Indifference. Apathy. The things that kill an author emotionally and psychologically.

Too Asian

Apparently, I “Asianized” everything.


Granted, I AM ASIAN.

Granted that reviewer might just be a troll…

BUT… this is the kind of shit POC authors have to face.

Interview with Joyce Chng

Turkce Bilimkurgu ve Fantastik

Dün Türkçe’sini yayınladığım söyleşinin bugün İngilizcesini yayınlıyorum.

I’ve read Joyce Chng’s book Of Oysters, Pearls And Magic and like it very much. When I saw Chng on Twitter asked for an interview. She was kind to accept and we talked about life, gender and wolves.
