UPDATE, 11 October.
We’re doing a promo at Hin Bus Depot this Sunday in conjunction with our participation at the #MYWritersFest 2017.
When you buy our book on Sunday, get a free coffee worth RM10 on us! Yes, and it’s not just any old coffee. It’s great coffee.
All you have to do is redeem our voucher at the specific coffee vendor. That’s it. No iffy terms and conditions. Come early as we have only limited vouchers and it’s only one voucher per book.
We wanted to do this because this month is also our anniversary month! We’re 19 years old this year and we want to celebrate this differently. So come along and celebrate with us!
As many of you know, Nic and I wrote and published a book late last year called Web Wisdom.
We’re now working on the Mandarin translation of the book so that we can help even more entrepreneurs (especially those who speak Mandarin). The Chinese version will be out very soon and we are having a pre-launch price (only RM40 for now).
We’ve had people asking us when we’re doing a book launch of Web Wisdom.
Nic and I have been quite tied up with our own projects, products and collaborations so we’ve been pushing our book launch to a later date.
So yes, we haven’t launched our book yet but who cares? People are buying our books and reading them and giving us great reviews.
But that doesn’t mean we don’t promote our books.
So this coming 15 October, I’ll be taking part in MYWritersFest 2017, a Malaysian-wide event organised by the Malaysian Writers’ Society (of which I am a member).
MYWritersFest (previously known as MYWritersBookFest) is a month-long festival in October that celebrates local writers and their writings, where writers meet readers in intimate settings, and writers are given the opportunity to showcase their creative works.
A series of Meet & Greet sessions, a mass book launch, book sales, readings and signings are held at various locations in Malaysia.
The idea is to get to know Malaysian writers, discover their books while supporting local publications and the Malaysian publishing industry.
So for the whole of October, here’s what’s happening:
- Kuala Lumpur – 1 Oct (Sun, 2pm) – Sunway Putra Mall, Kuala Lumpur
- Sabah – 7 Oct (Sat, 2pm) – The Walk, Riverson, Kota Kinabalu
- Penang – 15 Oct (Sun, 2pm) – The Art Assembly, George Town
- Perak – 21 Oct (Sat, 2pm) – Old Andersonian Club & Café, Ipoh
- Sarawak – 21 Oct (Sat, 8pm) – Le Café Rouge, Kuching
- Pahang – 28 Oct (Sat, 2pm) – The Reading Room & Cafe, Temerloh
- Festival Finale – 31 Oct (Tues, 7:30pm) – Sunway Velocity, Kuala Lumpur
I wish I could be present at all the other venues but my schedule simply doesn’t permit me to do so. So the one that I’m focusing my efforts on is 15 October, 2pm at The Art Assembly, Hin Bus Depot.
I’ll read a short snippet of our book and I have books to give away! (Yay, we all love freebies, right?).
So come join me and Nic at this event! It’s going to be an informal and fun affair where we learn from each other.
