    Wink Fantasy or Wuxia - Both or the Same!

    Hello! Thanks for all your great comments!

    Dream of the Dragon Pool - A Daoist Quest is now available on Amazon, B&N, and at the publisher - Pleasure Boat Studio and, hopefully, every where books are sold?!

    It is a historical fantasy, written as a wuxia novel. My author's website has the synopsis and the first chapter, along with my published short stories (written in traditional Chinese ghost story style), and the Wandering Blades Blog which goes into the history of wuxia literature in China, up to and including the Tang Dynasty, which is my academic specialty. The main character is the great Tang poet Li Bo (Li Bai) and tells of his adventures sailing up the Yangtze River with a very powerful sword - the mythical Dragon Pool Sword. For more details do visit my website.

    Best!

    Congratulations on a job well done, I'm sure going to order this. Please write more awesome martial arts story in the vein of wuxia mystery/conspiracy/intrigue as being written by GL. For example Gu Long's The Sword and Exquisiteness, Lu Xiao Feng and Little Li's Flying Dagger...

    again thanks for your contribution to the English literature of Chinese Wuxia...

    Congrats.

    Is it possible for you to post a summary of how you approached the publishers etc? (I just want to get an idea of the publishing side of things- just in case if one of our translating team wants to publish their work)

    Congratulations, Innkeeper!

    Did you publish it in English or in Chinese?

    Great job!
