And so THE WOMAN’S party draws to a close…

Happy Birthday THE WOMAN WHO LOST CHINA!Writer Rhiannon Jenkins Tsang

Today is the last day of THE WOMAN’S birthday fiesta week. I must thank all of you who have helped launch both THE WOMAN WHO LOST CHINA and my writing career; readers, friends, critics, publisher, agents, bookshop owners, family, DAD and, of course, YOU LOT, that is the wonderful crew down at Nottingham Writers’ Studio!

I leave THE WOMAN to stand on her own two feet for she is grown up now. But she will always be a very special daughter to me.  I have got some new and exciting non China writing projects in the bag…watch this space.

Before I go I would like to mention a few of the interesting English language China books just published or coming to publication in the near future.

Susan Blumberg Kason’s Good Chinese Wife promises a courageous memoir about her failed love affair and five year marriage to a Chinese man from the People’s Republic of China.  Publication date is the 29th of July 2014.  Ray Kwong has already given the book some cheeky tweets.  I am certainly looking forward to getting my copy!

Nicki Chen’s Tiger Tail Soup transports the reader into the heart of a war in China that started more than four years before Pearl Harbour and into the life of a woman who survived it.

And last but not least: Will Buckingham’s A Book of Changes: Sixty-Four Chance Pieces, is a novel of sorts that uses the I Ching, the ancient Chinese divination manual, as a machine for telling stories.

So I sign off with one last global round of virtual drinks.  Thanking you all on behalf of THE WOMAN WHO LOST CHINA, gan bei and cheers!
