Hi everyone!

It has been a while. I hope the early months of 2020 were good to you, with new year's resolutions in progress.

Leap year Discount Code - 10% off

To celebrate the leap year, my publisher Unbound is offering a site-wide 10% discount for all books. If you've been waiting to pledge the second volume of The Carpet Merchant, now is a good time! Use the code 'LEAP10' at checkout.

Volume One Book Launch Party

Volume One officially comes out March 5th! It'll be available in all stores, physical and digital.

If any pledgers happen to be in Malaysia, and specifically, in George Town, I'd like to invite you to attend Volume One's book party.

March 27, 8pm - 9.30 pm
Hikaya, George Town Penang
Author Q&A
Book-signing and merch
Spoken word performance by Gwen Hay, featuring pieces from her fanzine

For anyone outside of Malaysia, there will be a digital party on March 5th!
I'm doing an Ask Me Anything on Twitter. Send me questions about...well, anything: about process, craft, writing tips, the book and the characters and themes etc.

I will livetweet my answers in a Twitter thread, and I will compile the answers into a blog post the day after.

Please comment on this Unbound update, or email/tweet me with your questions!

That's it from me for now! I'll be back March 5th with another update.

Until then,
