Book 5: The Beijing Mummies is complete. Editor and I worked on it for two months and I am very pleased. 1 more to go - "Book 3: The Beijing Ghosts." Then it's off to my copy illustrator for final packaging for both print and ebook. Then it's published on Amazon. Almost there!

I am working with my editor on Book 3 - "The Beijing Ghosts." On my computer at 4am as usual so I can get some writing in before heading off to work. Dark outside, very quiet everywhere, sitting here by myself, imagining most ghostly horror. Ugghhh! I am scaring myself!

Book 4 - "The Beijing Beauties" is done being edited by a good editor. It's about three Chinese women looking for love in Los Angeles. 3 down, two left - Books 3 (The Beijing Ghosts) and Book 5 (The Beijing Mummies) are being edited simultaneously. Once that is done, then I can publish the entire 5 book series onto Amazon!! Keep going, keep going...

Book 2 - The Beijing Youth - is complete. My editor and I finished the entire book and the book cover description. It's ready for publication. She helped me tremendously and it's a wonderful story. I can't wait to have it all released on Amazon when the entire book series is complete.
So 2 down, 3 more to go. Before Book 2 was finished, I hired two new editors to work simultaneously on Book 3 - The Beijing Ghosts and Book 5 - The Beijing Mummy. I am finishing up Book 4 - The Beijing Beauties myself. Book 4 was previously edited by a professional editor. I'm just going back and tidying up some more. I am hoping to have all the books ready for publication by the end of the year. I can't wait!
Keep going- keep going!

Book 1 is finally complete. Whew! The editing and the book cover is done. I am pleased with the work. I showed it to a few friends of both the final book draft and the cover. They made a few comments but overall they liked it. I have posted the new book cover description onto this website under Book 1. Take a look and let me know what you think. The Beijing Family Book 1 Cover
1 down, 4 more to go. I have to keep going. So now I am working on Book 2 with my editor. We're in the middle of the book and the drama is intensifying. I am also in the process of hiring an editor for Book 3. This time, I received 50+ job applicants from Upwork in comparison to the 71+ job applicants I received for Book 2, which was insane. Still a good handful, but more manageable. I am paying above average compensation which garners more interested applicants than usual. But at the same time, I am looking for above average talents and skills suitable for this particular book.
Furthermore, my work partner and I are the number #1 sales team for all of Los Angeles for my day job as a real estate broker.
Busy, busy, busy.
Back to work...
