Anyone?

Taking a break from Sunday housework to make a wee request, especially, to the Singaporeans here.

Do you know any illustrator (for cover art and interior illustration/design)? For a project (secret at the moment), I would like to find someone who can illustrate covers with a feel akin to James Gurney’s Dinotopia.

Likewise, illustrator should also be versatile with various art styles. I am also keen to see the work of students or emerging professionals. And yes, illustrator would be paid.

If you are one illustrator (Singaporean) or know of anyone locally, please drop me a message via my Contact page.

Now, back to housework, because dust. πŸ˜€

When Nenek Disappeared

When Nenek DisappearedΒ is one of the awesome stories on Fair Folk.Β πŸ˜€

It’s June and time for Act 2.

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? πŸ˜€

So I wrote something about Duan Wu and Dragonboat Festival

Dumplings and Dragonboats

When I was a little girl, I used to watch with open-mouthed admiration and puzzlement as my mother prepared the ingredients for the making of zong zi (rice wrapped in leaf). She would make a variety of fillings: sweet chestnuts, dried shrimp, pork meat, and mushrooms. There would be a lot of soaking, stewing and boiling of the ingredients. Then, there was the rice. Washed, it was not the usual rice we use for eating at the dinner table. It was glutinous rice. While these ingredients were being prepared, she would soak the bundle of dried bamboo leaves with boiling hot water. Steeped in the water, the leaves magically would regain their lush greenness and the air would fill with the fragrance of something like jasmine tea. This fragrance would follow me until adulthood. – See more at: http://folklorethursday.com/folklore-of-food/duan-wu-festival-not-just-dumplings/#sthash.LHnfmoPj.dpuf
