I finally put text on this! I think I started this a year ago. I decided that I actually like it better barely coloured (mostly just pencil crayon) -- it looks kind of weightless, which works with the title. (and yes this is the third time I鈥檝e posted a new version of this picture聽馃槀)

Book deal announcement?!
Tumblr media
When I first immigrated from China to Canada, I was the only Chinese kid in an otherwise all-white school. There, they made me think I was too foreign, too backward, too weird. It took me years to unpack those feelings and learn to be proud of my heritage again.
Now I've poured my love for Chinese history and myth into a book that鈥檚 like Yugioh meets Chinese Percy Jackson, and IT鈥橲 ACTUALLY GETTING PUBLISHED!! 馃槶馃槶
Add this book on Goodreads!!
Preorder my first book Iron Widow, a Pacific Rim x The Handmaid鈥檚 Tale polyamorous reimagining of China鈥檚 only female emperor Wu Zetian, out Sept 21 this year from Penguin Random House!
[Picture Text: Sarah McCabe at S&S/McElderry has bought at auction, in a six-figure deal, Zachary Ying and the Dragon Emperor by Xiran Jay Zhao, launching a middle grade series in the vein of Yu-Gi-Oh! meets Percy Jackson. It follows 12-year-old Chinese American boy Zack, whose AR gaming headset gets possessed by the First Emperor of China, who compels him to journey across China to heist artifacts and defeat figures from history and myth so he can seal the underworld before its spirits flood out and destroy the mortal realm. Publication is set for summer 2022 and summer 2023; Rachel Brooks at BookEnds Literary negotiated the deal for world rights.]

THE SCORPIO RACES 鈾 |聽MAGGIE STIEFVATER聽
鈥淲hat it鈥檚 like is a battle. A mess of horses and men and blood. The fastest and strongest of what is left from two weeks of preparation on the sand. It鈥檚 the surf in your face, the deadly magic of November on your skin, the Scorpio drums in the place of your heartbeat. It鈥檚 speed, if you鈥檙e lucky. It鈥檚 life and it鈥檚 death or it鈥檚 both and there鈥檚 nothing like it. Once upon a time, this moment 鈥 this last light of evening the day before the race 鈥 was the best moment of the year for me. The anticipation of the game to come. But that was when all I had to lose was my life.鈥澛

聽 聽 聽 聽He leaned in, giving me time to pull away. I could feel his breath when he said, 鈥淚 love it when you quote me.鈥 He brushed his lips over mine once, briefly, then again. It was less a kiss than the promise of one. 鈥淲hen you鈥檙e ready,鈥 he said. Then he tucked my hand in his and we stood together, watching the spill of stars streaking the sky.
