Updates: What Have I Published So Far and What Am I Writing Now

Gosh, it seems I can never keep this blog up to date and posting regularly like other writers. Just when I got myself started, I’d silently disappear into the night again like a ninja after a few posts. LOL!

So anyhow, it has been a while, and I thought I better do an update as to what I’m up to in my life as a writer.

So far, four volumes of Chained to You serial light novels has been published. I have received numerous emails from readers who love the series and cannot wait until volume 5 and 6 are due to be out in 2017. As an author of this particular series, I would like to say thank you very much for loving my books. It means a lot to me. ^_^

Currently, Volume One of Chained to You: Bounded is FREE to download: Please go to my official romance website here to get your copy. It is under the featured section. Or just click on the images below to go straight to Amazon. ^_^

Next, the Sakura series. I have revised and republished the first three books on Amazon only for now. Those three books will be available in other ebook stores such as iBooks, B&N, Google, and Smashwords in early Feb of 2017. Please check out my official site here for more info. This series, too, I get numerous emails from readers. Once again, thank you very much for loving the series. ^_^

 

Now, for Romance of the Nine Kingdoms. This is my fantasy romance series. The first one, A Demon’s Wrath, which is book one of the Demon King Trilogy, will be re-publish in Feb 2017. Previously I did plan to keep it until maybe the end of 2017 after I have book 2 done, which is A Demon’s Bride. However, I’ve since changed my mind and will re-publish it again in Feb 2017. It will be available on Amazon, iBooks, and Google. Once again, I get a few emails from readers about this one in regard as to when I’ll be publishing book 2. Despite that I love writing fantasy romance, I must apologize in that it takes longer for me to get the book done because of the world building, the magic, and the conflicts etc. It’s a bit more complicated than writing the sweet contemporary romance. Furthermore, this particular sub-genre of romance doesn’t sell as well. Only a small group of people are into it. But nonetheless, I will continue to write the series, though a bit on the slow side. ^_^

And last but not least, my young adult. Finally! Good Lord, finally, I have nearly finished with the first book. I have planned to write the YA series for ages, but I just never have the gut to get started. Why? Because I know it’d be a shit load of work with research, world-building, imagination, and loads of mysteries I have to make up and then solve in an interest, yet logical way. The twist and turns in this series are enough to drive me insane already. I will tell you that I have headaches every time I finished a chapter and then I have to go back and read it like a hundred times to see if it make sense.

So what is the series of this YA called that I’m so psyched about?

The series is called The Elixir of Immortality, part of The Blood Alchemist Chronicles. Volume One: An Intended Murder will be out in Feb 2017 on Amazon only. I’m testing it out to see how far it can go. It is a completely different field from my romance genre, although there is still romance involved. Me, haha, I cannot stay away from writing romance, even in a fantasy mashup with mystery young adult type books.

Below is the first book cover of The Elixir of Immortality, An Intended Murder. I’m currently working on my YA website, which will be done, I hope, by Jan 2017.

Meanwhile, here’s the blurb of the book. I will start posting a few chapters soon once I’ve received my MS back from my editor. ^_^

The Elixir of Immortality: An Intended Murder

bc-em-v1-an-intended-murder-1

When seventeen-year-old Daniella Romano masquerades as the son of a low-ranked Chinese lord and waltzes with her comrades into the Earl of Middlemarch’s birthday party to assassinate a high demon, her revenge plans turn sour. There, Daniella meets Zach—a Greek god if she ever saw one—who suspects she is an imposter and will not let her escape his sight. Amidst the exuberant atmosphere, a man shoots the powerful king of Darnia, Daniella incidentally witnesses another influential lord slaying the culprit, and her friends are captured, ultimately becoming the prime suspects in the case of treason.

Now it is up to Daniella to use her wit, wiles, and skills as a blood alchemist—an inherited ability to control and transmute blood into powerful weapons—to save her friends.

Set in an alternative world of Britannia during the reign of Queen Victoria, The Elixir of Immortality is a mashup of fantasy, mystery, and romance.

August Book Release: A Secret Proposal Part 1

It’s a Saturday here in New Zealand, and it is a lovely day. The sun is shining despite the cold this morning. It was only yesterday as I stood waiting for my dear sister Wanitta to pick me up after work that I noticed some of the Sakura trees along the streets are budding. This could only mean one thing! Spring is coming! And it is awesome. I can’t wait for the Sakura trees to be in full bloom so I could take some pictures with my new camera. And maybe starts shooting our YouTube video, too. Hehe. We’ve been planning for ages.

Anyway, Bazi wise August is the month of Shen Monkey (date: August 8th – September 7th). Sheng Monkey is a metal element, and Sheng Monkey is both an ungrateful punishment and destruction to the Si Snake in my chart. On top of this, it is also a harm to my Hai Pig. Thus far, there is nothing major that is distressing to me. But then again, this is the year of Yi Wei, so this might act as a patting to the blow? Though I could not say the same for next year as 2016 will be the year of the Shen Monkey. Triple Sheng Monkey! Eek! Shen Monkey 10 Years Luck – Sheng Monkey Year – Sheng Monkey Month.

But is it really an Eek? Metal is one of my favorite elements to balance my chart because Metal produces water, which is my most needed element as my chart is very hot and dry. Metal to my Day Master (Yi Wood) is my Influence star, especially my Direct Officer star. Direct Officer star, among other things, represents my husband star and my name and fame. Okay, let’s not talk about that possible other half. We know it’s not going to happen because of the punishment, destruction and harm. But what about my name and fame? Could this explain why my book A Secret Proposal got to the top of the Apple iBookstore top paid list on the release date? And furthermore, His Hired Girlfriend, A Secret Kiss, and Chained to You – The Contract is in the top 100 free section on the Apple iBooks store? Spread the name???

Next month September is the You Rooster Month (date: September 8th – Oct 7th). You Rooster is pure metal. It represents the 7 Killing to my Day Master. 7 Killing is more notorious and unstable and of course it clashes with my Mao Rabbit. *Sigh* It’s a never ending battle these clashes, harms, punishments and destructions. So, we’ll see how my books and I fare during this month. If I can survive that, then maybe I can survive 2017 because it will be a Ding You Rooster year, and of course, my next 10 years luck (Xin You) as that is where I will be heading within the next three years. Xin You is freakingly strong pure, pure, pure, and I mean pure 7 Killing. Can you just imagine a very sharp knife or scissors cutting cute, little plant? The scissors cut the dead branches and leaves, shaping the little plant into a beautiful flower. But one wrong move. Snip! The flower is gone. And I mean gone! You can’t fix it. It’s a done deal. Yi Wood does not like 7 Killing. Yi Wood likes Direct Officer better. At least there is still a few more years for me to learn bazi and get to know how to fully use the 7 Killing properly ^_^
