Fun for Kids in Malaysia is out in bookstores now. ParenThots, the parenting portal of The Star is running a contest on Facebook. You can win a copy of the book for yourself. But if you don’t like entering contests and would rather just buy the book, you can cut out a 20% discount coupon from tomorrow’s Star. You can check out the review of the book at ParenThots.
This book is my 6th but for the first time in my writing career*, my publisher is organising a press conference for the book. This is a joint PC with Yvonne Lee whose third book, Madness Aboard has just been released. It’s a sequel to the popular The Sky is Crazy airline book. Yvonne and I are rather paranoid about nobody turning up for the PC but our publisher, Marshall Cavendish, has assured us that at least one person has confirmed attendance.
Having a press conference for one’s book sounds rather posh, doesn’t it. It balloons up the ego a little. Well, we shall know how keen the media’s interest is after tomorrow and whether the balloon will become a little rounder or fizzle out in a loud ffffftttt.
MPH did organize a launch for Honk! If You’re Malaysian. Though it piggy-backed on the Share-A-Gift charity carnival, it was rather grand and was quite a success. Honk! is my best-selling book to-date having sold a 5-figure number.
