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.

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...

My editors are encouraging me to write openly about the shameful atrocities of the Cultural Revolution during the Mao regime into Book 2. If I do, I will be openly denouncing one of the historical leaders of China and risk being banned from China. But I am an American. How can I write without telling the truth and speaking freely? Thank goodness for Freedom of Speech.
