New Cover for Small Shen

Hi folks! It’s been 3 months since I finished “Fabled Kingdom” v3, and I’ve spent the past 3 months getting it into print and going on a long-awaited trip to Japan. It’s been a relief to finishing the “Fabled Kingdom” series, and I realised that I was so exhausted that I’m still stuck in holiday mode. Still, I’ve got a few shorter projects lined up, and I’ve also finished my short horror story “Mother and Son“, so I’ll be working on those this year while I practice my colouring and plan my next graphic novel.

Fabled Kingdom News: You can now buy the series in print from my webstore, with FREE SHIPPING for Australia and the US (USD$10 for international), and also on Amazon (Book 1, Book 2, Book 3), where a random fan of “The Dreaming” left several 5-star reviews!

The other piece of good news is that the “Fabled Kingdom” series is selling quite well at cons. In a completely unexpected turn, I’ve been selling the series as a box set and seeing a lot of sales. It seems that people want to buy the full set, and I’ve been getting rave reviews about the strong ending to book 3 as well. It seems that a good story with a strong ending is always popular!

New Small Shen Cover: My collaboration with author Kylie Chan on her novel “Small Shen” came out in 2012, and is still selling 5 years later in 2017. For those who don’t know, “Small Shen” is a prequel to Kylie’s best-selling “White Tiger” series, a 9-book Chinese Fantasy series that finished last year. Kylie and I have always owned the international rights for “Small Shen“, and since the book has never been published in dead tree format in the international market, we’re re-releasing the book with a new cover in 2017. If negotiation for the Australian rights go well good, we should be able to sell it in Australia too.

Here’s the new front/back cover for the “Small Shen” book:

Small Shen – Chapter 3

Continuing with a happy 2014! I mentioned last post that I’m only 2-3 stories away from finishing the prose version of my horror stories, and now I’m also planning to upload my e-book version of my short stories from 2000-2010! I’m also thinking of setting up a “store” section of my site, on that will properly sell EVERYTHING that can be bought online – from print books to e-books. I’ve noticed that I lack a single page that does that simple function, would you believe!

Anyway, this is chapter 3 of “Small Shen” up, and this will be the last of the “Small Shen” sample. You’ll have to buy the print/ebook to read the rest. I’m also posting this on my DeviantArt and Tumblr accounts.

Anyway, for those who don’t know, this book was published by Harper Voyager in 2012. It was written by Kylie Chan, and adapted/illustrated into ‘comics-prose’ form by me. It’s a prequel to Kylie’s best-selling Chinese fantasy series ‘White Tiger‘, with 19 chapters of 75,000 words total, 9 of which were converted into comics-prose.

You can purchase “Small Shen” here with free International shipping, or buy it as an ebook on Amazon.com.

You can also download the original prose version of the 9 comics-prose chapters, along with the comics-script version of the work.

I wish you all a great 2014! Until next time when I would be posting up the first 2 volumes of “The Dreaming”!

Small Shen – Chapter 2

Happy 2014, everyone! I hope you all had a good time this year, especially the New Year’s parties. I had a super busy month/week – I’ve been writing the eight short horror stories I’m intending to publish in prose and comics-prose format, and I’ve now finished illustrating two, and written five. I’m close to finishing the sixth one in the next few days, so I’m way thrilled by the progress!

Anyway, I’m posting chapters 2-3 of “Small Shen” up, at the same time because I’ve noticed I’ve been a bit slack with my website posts (yikes). I’m also posting this on my DeviantArt and Tumblr accounts.

Hi everyone! My next book Small Shen (from Harper Collins Voyager), will be out in Australian bookstores this month! I was super-excited when I got this book – the art was printed on high quality paper, and it just looks fabulous. As you can see from these pictures below, the book is a mix between prose and comics.

This is a collaboration with best-selling author Kylie Chan, and includes a free song (book soundtrack!) by my friend and long-time collaborator Yunyu, called Butterflies, that can be downloaded from a link at the back of the book.
