The 8 Days of Christmas

As I mentioned during the Kicksarter, the number 8 is considered “lucky” and “happy” in China, and it is connected with the character for Double Happiness. In honor of the luckiness of 8, for these eight days, December 18-25, Double Happiness will be half free!

The Audiobook

Yes! It’s my pleasure to announce that after dozens of hours in a recording studio in Berkeley, CA, and after the hardcover, paperback, and e-book have been out for many months, the final format of Double Happiness is nearly here! I will write more about this in future posts, but to answer your basic questions:

  • Yes, I read the book myself and tell the story for your listening pleasure.
  • Yes, I pronounce the Chinese terms and words for you.
  • Yes, it’s the unabridged whole book.
  • Yes, it’s a wonderfully professional production. A double gratitude to the pros at Live Oak Studio.
  • Yes, it’s availabe on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. 

Update: It’s now published and available on Amazon and should be in iTunes and Audible any minute now as well!

January Events!
December will soon turn into January and with it, the book tour will wrap up. I’ve had so many wonderful events and so much fun connecting with you throughout the country, it’s hard to believe the book tour is coming to a close. There are a couple of final events left, and they should be great, so if you are (or will be) in the Bay Area, I will be doing my final reading events in January. Please come and support these wonderful independent bookstores. My only East Bay and San Francisco readings will take place:

This Saturday, at the prestigious Book Passage

As I write this, the “Storm of the Decade” is apparently brewing directly over Marin County, California. Assuming the city of Corte Madera survives, I’ll be appearing at the wonderful Book Passage bookstore and cafe this Saturday afternoon at 4pm.

I would be delighted to see you there, to share storm survival stories, and to read a story to you about a wild journey through China.

Food and drink available for purchase in the cafe.

Saturday, December 13 (MARIN)
4pm : Reading & Signing
Book Passage
51 Tamal Vista Blvd, Corte Madera
