Author Visit @ Zhonghua Primary

???????????????????????????????Spoke to more than 100 pupils of Zhonghua Primary about Not in the Stars on 26 January.

Today I learned two things. I learned that there is such a thing as “Pre Assembly” – this is a 20-minute slot inserted before the assembly time.

And I learned that I could conduct an Author Visit in 20 minutes. Well, actually I didn’t. I mean, how do you distil 30 years of trials, heartaches, waiting, rejections, zero income, no royalties and finally seeing your Book in print… into 20 minutes?

Look Who’s Buying My Book


I had a book signing at a school book fair. That evening my friend sent me this picture. Turns out that her son had bought my book and I had pinched his cheek (irresistible – so round).
Felt like I’d been promoted. It used to be my friends would push my books on their kids, “I bought this for you. We must support Aunty Pauline!” But today the kid bought my book of his own volition.
