Dear friends, I wanted to share some good news about my book, Floating on a Malayan Breeze. Barely two months after the launch, the book has been sent for a second print run. The first run of 1,750 is almost gone. That is small beer for an international book, but pretty good for a niche topic–when I first signed up with HKU Press, an editor there told me they’d be happy if we sold 1,000 in the first year.
So I wanted to thank all of you for your support. Couldn’t have done it without you (mean that quite literally, heh). Thanks in particular to Riya de los Reyes, Allanjit Singh, Kj Tan Kane Juan, Peter Schoppert and Sumana Rajarethnam, who have helped immensely in terms of marketing and digital publicity.
Also, the book has finally reached Western shores, and we will be starting our marketing push there over the next few weeks. For those of you who have read the book, or parts of it, I’d really appreciate if you can write a review on the Amazon site. We have no reviews and ratings at the moment, so page looks a bit naked. Even 1-2 lines will suffice. See link here. Thanks so much! 🙂
