Can Jixin succeed in a world of dragon racing run by powerful women? Can he fight the system and fulfil his dream of becoming a dragon rider? Or does he choose instead to be a dragon physician like his mother? Jixin finds his world suddenly changed when Lu Si, the scion of a Rookery owner, takes a shine on him. He is plunged straight into the lucrative world of dragon racing… Will his life change?

Excerpt:
“A sound woke him up. He opened his eyes and looked into a pair of eyes in the dark. This pair of eyes was familiar.
Lu Si.
She placed a slender finger on his lips.
“We are leaving,” she said.
Jixin sat up abruptly. “What? Where?…

It has an ISBN…

So… Dragon Physician is now alive. Since Lulu did a site change over, made their functions really inaccessible (too many steps) and basically lost the files of many customers (me included).

I guess it’s happy book birthday to this book of mine who have been through the wringer, put on wait and appeared on a few platforms. It’s a survivor .

May updates!

Actually, it’s not a very merry month of May. Singapore has extended its lockdown to 1st June. My hospital nurse who is assistant to the consultant whom I am seeing just called me to say that my appointment has been postponed to 1st September, due to the pandemic.

I have made my kidlit available for sale, since things are very in the air. Fire Heart has delayed publication too. Everything has come to a screeching halt and for a not-so-well-known creator, not a good sign. I have written stuff, tried to stay productive, but I feel torn between giving up and ferocious anger.  (Note: I am OK as things can be. My family is safe, though bored and stuck at home, but we have food and shelter).

I am not even sure how the future is going to be, how publishing will look like post-pandemic (I am expecting to see resurgences of the virus). I have a bad feeling that voices and stories will be lost, ignored, neglected or – worse – erased for dominant narratives. Racism and all the shit things will not go away – people will become more parochial in their outlook. Diversity will only be domestic and regional. Markets are not talking to each other yet. (You hope, right?)

So, what do I have in store for May?

Honestly… Eveything’s up in the air.

1. Edit my second book (but first book isn’t published yet)

2. Mice?

3. Just fucking survive.

A nice way to end a horrible month…

My Soul Is Wolf is now up and running on Anathema!

Pre-order link is up…

… for Sun Dragon’s Song.

I am self-pubbing the book as the pandemic looks like it’s not going away anytime soon and I feel as if I am running out of time.

Another reading on Black Wolf Reads

It’s me reading from Dragon Sisters: Xiao Xiao & The Dragon’s Pearl – Chapter One: The Discovery.

Unedited, completely natural with my household in action around me. Also I was testing my desktop’s camera function and guess it worked!

April updates!

Not an Aprils’ Fool joke!
March was… overwhelming with COVID-19 in everything and disrupting people’s lives just like that.  I am supposed to be happy (trying to be), hanging on, and trying to stay focused.  Everything feels off, things are in the air, and nothing is certain
So the only things I can do now is to work on things I can see/are tangible goals (for me). 
1. Work on xianxia book.
2. Work on book 2 of my YA fantasy.
3. Full Moon burning of intentions.
