By all means, read the stuff you want to write. I would think that, living in Singapore and knowing the territory, that you could turn out some pretting interesting stuff.

Nice to see that somebody recognizes that just because you've put 50,000 words on a page that the novel isn't finished. Time for you to pick one, work it over, and send it out. And I mean "work" it over, not look it over.

Ovidia, thank you for your kind condolences and please forgive me for not replying sooner. I've been having serious problems with my computer. My latest book, Escape, is now online at Fictionwise and will be available on Amazon.com next week. Thanks for asking. :)

Yes please, Jean!
& I'll try ordering it online--book shops here can be a bit iffy about importing stuff!

Thank you, Ovidia! I have a book coming out in August titled, Escape on the Wind. It's a Wyoming historical novel featuring members of Butch Cassidy's Wild Bunch. I'll let you know when it's available. :-)

Love the picture of you. I'm impressed that you made NaNoWriMo work!

I love writing comedy (scripts and standup). It just doesn't pay well. But I will get back to it soon just for fun.

Thank you, Ovidia. I would be interested to know if any of my books are available in Singapore. I've seen them advertised on the Japanese Amazon.com, which amazes me no end. lol

Yes, all that first hand experience and editing has really come in handy. :-) And it's a lot more fun making up crime than getting all the facts straight for journalisitic reporting.

thank you, Jean--& good luck with your current novel-in-progress too!
Good to know we have reading tastes in common guess that means I'll probably love your books!

Best of luck, Ovidia, with your crime novel. We share the same favorite authors. Singapore is a great background setting for a novel of any genre.

Hi LJ--I just posted a hello on your site--thanks very much for your encouragement & I'll go see if I can find your books here. Reading crime fiction is even more addictive than writing it especially when you're a procrastinator trying to call it 'research'!

Hi Ovidia
Best wishes with your first novel. It's an accomplishment just to finish a draft.
Writing crime fiction is also addictive.

That's great--I'll go look, in bookstores rather than the library, until I either find it or they get frustrated with me asking for it & bring in more copies!

Yes, I'm setting mine in Singapore as it's all I'm familiar with. Hope you do do one set here!

I have a friend in Singapore who seems to have found copies of my books in a store there - and one copy in a library. So who knows. Good luck with your own crime novel. Is it set in Singapore? I have yet to set one there, but sooner or later I probably will.

Hi Linton,
Thanks for your suggestions. I'll definitely try working towards posting something, problem is right now it's still difficult to carve out bits that I feel are okay...
Maybe I'll do more reading on the feedback sites first, just to get a feel of it.

And thanks very much for the offer on peer review sites, I might take you up on that. But again, after I've found my feet.

Wow--you used to live in Taipei? It was--is--an exciting & beautiful place. I'm not sure how much Singapore has changed from the 60's. What do you remember?
