The Long Process to Completing My Next Anthology, Marked by Scorn

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted any kind of update about my probably now long-anticipated second anthology, Marked by Scorn: An Anthology Featuring Non-Traditional Relationships. When I put out the submission call, I had recently moved to the San Francisco Bay Area, and was looking for a creative project I would be able … More The Long Process to Completing My Next Anthology, Marked by Scorn

Highlights from my first 8 months in the San Francisco Bay Area: June 2014-Feb 2015

Given I’ve not updated this blog the entire time since I’ve lived in Oakland, California, and my last post was about the comedy scene in Malaysia, I thought I’d write up a broad entry to discuss what I’m up to here, and some of the highlights of my experiences. Moving Stress Before I go into … More Highlights from my first 8 months in the San Francisco Bay Area: June 2014-Feb 2015

One week until the release of Adrift (and another giveaway)

The last month has been pretty busy for me. I travelled to New Zealand to meet my partner at Solarwyrm Press, Jax Goss, followed by a trip to Melbourne, Australia, for the Melbourne Writers Festival, which I hope to write about separately another time. Less than a week after returning to KL, I attended a … More One week until the release of Adrift (and another giveaway)

Adrift is finally in my hands… and new ways to get it in yours!
