Dream of the Water Children: The Black Pacific

AVAILABLE Now! My Chapter in Great Book: THE BEIGING of AMERICA

This book is a treasure full of varied, intense, and memorable stories and perspectives on being mixed-race in America.

I, along with other mixed-Asian writers, and other mixed folks, have short chapters in this anthology, published by 2Leaf Press.

PLEASE SUPPORT 2Leaf Press. You can purchase the book from 2Leaf Press (print and ebook versions), or from Amazon.

Even if you may not be interested in purchasing the book, please consider supporting the press. It is a Person-of-Color owned independent publishing house, trying to survive in an ever-increasing, ever-dominating corporate publishing world.

Beiging & Dream: Two of my WORKS to be PUBLISHED this year!

Very Very Happy to Report:  two of my works will be published this year!!  Both are *Definitely* on Track, on Time, and will happen (barring destruction of the publishing house).

In June, I will have a chapter in the anthology of mixed-race people in America, entitled: The Beiging of America: Personal Narratives About Being Mixed Race in the Twenty-First Century. It has some very powerful authors in it, of many racial and national backgrounds, sexual and gender identities, of various generations.

Final proof is being edited as we speak.

In November, after six long years of creative struggle after turning in my book to the publisher, my long-awaited book: Dream of the Water Children: Memory and Mourning in the Black Pacific, will be released. Yes!

The Final proofs and images are being edited and are being put in after being finalized, and waiting for the Introduction and Afterword to be finalized as well.  After this, there will be a final go-over by the chief editor and myself, and then it will be printed!

To be honest, since my publisher, for both of these works, is a small independent publisher, the marketing and promotion will mostly fall on me.

Please contact me if you can write a REVIEW for publishing in another publication or online site (or know of someone who is interested and can get published), or if you can plan a promotional reading by me (alone or on a panel or in a group), or help out in any other way.

Let me know if you need more info.
