The Mid-Autumn Festival: Mooncakes, Lanterns and Family


AFCC recap

For two days, I attended AFCC (Asian Festival of Children’s Content) and as always was/am surprised by the amount and level of talent in Southeast Asia.

My panel was about Southeast Asian YA science fiction and fantasy. THERE ARE SOUTHEAST ASIAN YA WRITERS IN SOUTHEAST ASIA. Why aren’t they more well-known? I really want more translations now. At the moment, most of the books published are only read within their home countries and only by a few as accessibility and interest are still very low. Why aren’t publishers biting/interested/actively acquiring? I know Scholastic Asia is. (I am biased, because I have a book under them). Why aren’t we actively marketing and promoting YA (and MG) sff books?

(I have more Thoughts re: this – will write more when my brain cells recover)



Rabbit on the moon: September updates

Finally, the Ghost Month is over. I got things done. Mid-Autumn Mice got drawn. Games got written. I am even staring at book 2 of YA fantasy.
What will I be up to this September:
1. AFCC – a major kidlit conference in Singapore: I have a panel about Southeast Asian science fiction YA.
3. A major medical appointment, plus scan.
4. Book 2 of YA fantasy.
5. Space opera RPG.
6. Writing history academic/assessment book.

A good end to Ghost Month!

Today is the end of the Ghost Month or Seventh Month.

And the best way to end it:  my history series proposal greenlit!

So, September is a lot of writing. 😀
