SWF: Urban fantasy at your doorstep

The panel was awesome! We read from our books and answered thought-provoking questions from moderator Lin Xueling ( author of The Island In The Caldera) as well as from the audience.

Some take-aways:  Things that anchor us to story (Singlish, places we remember, our own cultural traditions etc), writing for an international audience vs writing for local readers, Singaporean literature, diversity, how to market our books to regional countries like Indonesia – translations etc.

Also: Never give up, keep on writing. 🙂

Also: Gave away copies of Halcyon Days.

If you are keen to get Dragonhearted and Land of the Meat Munchers, they are from Scholastic Asia and Marshall Cavendish respectively).
