I just wanted to announce that I will be contributing an autobiographical story to Legacies, an antholozine “written and illustrated by Asian American creators that capture the diversity of the Asian-American experience.”
Check out the artists and the writers.
I came back from a 3-week adventure in Shandong and Henan provinces; Nanjing, and Beijing. Then, I launched a web novel collaboration with Taki tentatively titled, Gathering of Heroes series: Anhu. Whew! It’s been busy but great things are in the works. Here’s a snippet of the story to tide you over:
The illusion of peace is shattered for the residents of Dong Ying on one fateful night, when the cogs of a near-forgotten legend begin to turn. Two young women whose paths were never meant to cross find their stories slowly begin to intertwine as they are challenged by assassins and demons in this new world. Can Zhang Huizhong, a noble with a stubborn streak, and Li Chunfeng, a bandit with a penchant for erupting, unravel this centuries old legend before it consumes the lives of their loved ones – and that of Weiguang Kingdom?
Check it out and let us know what you think! In the meantime, I am earnestly compiling my journals, including my 2017 trip to Japan and South Korea.
Gathering of Heroes Series: Anhu
Moon on a Clearless Night. Photo taken by B.M.C.L.
Shining through the bedside window,
The moon hovers over the swell of night.
An hourglass guiding Time’s worldly reach
over the sleeping city.
Basking the city with dreams of
yonder days gone.
With each cycle,
a new life begins anew whilst bringing the other
to the still darkness of sleep.
