News update

Hello all,

Good news. The publishing company is well under way. I am trademarking the name and logo, and I have just passed the first HUGE step. Now, it’s the waiting game. Under UK law, every new company needs to have its name/logo in the Trademark Journal for two months for anyone/company to object. I have until mid December, before Christmas. Therefore, once again, I have to delay the launch. Meantime, work on the first soon-to-be published book under the company is also underway. There have been so many sleepless nights for the last couple of months. But it’s all going to be so bloody worth it. I haven’t forgotten you all. Aside from the company, I also have news regarding my two previous books.

There will be a new re-write of ‘A Chinese Christmas Carol’. Don’t get me wrong. The book will still be available to buy. Considering many of you bought the book, I would not want to make any changes to the original. Instead, a similar, but slightly different story will be told. I am grateful for those who have bought it. It will always be the original background story. However, I want to made a saga or a series out of it. For those who have read it will know that there are questions to be answered. And those questions will be answered in the saga/series.

Unfortunately, ‘Family Sorrow’ will be taken down once the company is launched. Instead, it will also be re-written and be part of ‘A Chinese Christmas Carol’ saga/series. For those who have bought it, thank you, and always remember it will always be the original background story.

All these changes are due to the fact that as a will-be-soon company, I want to start fresh with the books. But there are still stories regarding characters from both books to tell that I cannot just not write about. Which is why I want to start fresh, and yet, hold on to parts of the old.

I hope many of you will support me on this new exciting journey. Because without readers, writers, bloggers, and supporters like you out there, there will be no means for books to be written. Meantime, don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have questions regarding the changes. I will do my best to answer them.

Love you all,

PY Lab

Featured in Bangkok Patana Magazine

Months ago, I was asked to be featured in my old school’s magazine. Yesterday, all the way from Bangkok, Thailand, the magazine arrived at my doorstep.patana

I grew up in Thailand, where I attended the country’s original and most prestigious school, also known as Bangkok Patana School – The British International School in Thailand. Not only is Patana one of the best schools around, the school is also my family for life. I am currently working on a memoir that is close to my heart. It is about my time growing up at Patana. Thank you, Patana, for featuring me in the magazine. I look forward to publishing and presenting the memoir to you.Photo1

Updates – ‘Family Sorrow’ for Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award 2013

famsorry

Last month, I entered my book ‘Family Sorrow’ for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. Unfortunately, 2000 out of the 10,000 entries got through to the second round, and ‘Family Sorrow’ isn’t amongst the 2000 entries. However, I would like to thank those who have supported me on entering the competition. Much appreciated. I am extremely disappointed, but I also won’t give up. Like the saying goes, sometimes we have to fall many times before getting somewhere at the top. Thank you once again for the huge support.
