Book Wall

all books_1019

Updated my book wall with my two latest books, Lion Boy and Drummer Girl and Jade’s Quest for Her Heritage.

Lion Boy and Drummer Girl was published in 2017 while Jade’s Quest was published in August this year. Thanks to a talk in Singapore Chinese Girls’ School, I was finally spurred to revisit my woefully outdated book wall!

Added New Books

Had to add two new books Shaped for a Purpose and A Fighting Chance.
I liked my previous collage, but every time I needed to add a new book,
I had to go find all the previous books to snap a photo.
So I have decided to change to this linear (boring) style,
so I can add new books easily.
Shaped for a Purpose (Armour Publishing) and A Fighting Chance (Scholastic)
are brand-new releases. Please pick them up from major bookstores!
Thank you for your support!

 

Little Jay & Ariel at Popular

Enjoyed storytelling of Chronicles of Meng Meng and An An at Popular bookstore in Bras Basah Complex over two weekends recently.

Was amused again by the difference of  storytelling sessions in school and
in a mall. At schools, I’d have a big ‘captive’ audience, usually 30 to 40 students.

At malls, however, I have to compete with the surrounding distractions for my audience. Some days, I can get only 4 to 5 people! Then, it depends on my acting skills (!) to win more participants. At malls, I appreciate each and every child who joins me in my lonely spot at the reading corner. Thanks, friends, for your support!

I think every author should conduct storytelling in a mall occasionally beside school visits. It is a humbling experience, but it’s very satisfying because every participant is hard-won by your personal effort!

Ariel and Her Honesty Pig is the third book in the “Chronicles of Meng Meng and An An” series. The first book “Grandma’s Eightieth Birthday” was part of a kit that won Dr Toy’s 100 Best Children’s Products for 2013. The second book is very appealing to boys – “Little Jay Writes an Adventure”.
