I loved words. I love to sing them and speak them and even now, I must admit, I have fallen into the joy of writing them. Anne Rice
I loved it the moment I laid eyes on it! All 2500 copies were delivered to my home and I did not imagine the overwhelming joy i would feel….there was no way, I suppose, to anticipate the emotions that burst forth
My lovely son R1, gave me a super ego boost by insisting he was to be the first one to BUY a book from me…he also said he wished he could afford 2 more copies for his sisters so they would not have to share and ruin his copy!!! ha ha!
Next morning i.e. Saturday 30th June, I dragged the kids down to Kinokuniya at KLCC through the mad KL traffic, knowing full well that the book might be out on their shelves by then….we met my partner in creative and literary crime Salwah there and went on a hunt for TGD!
Lo and behold!
TGD was really given a room with a view as it was on a shelf with Oliver Jeffers new book “STUCK”….imagine, Menon and Jeffers on the same shelf!!!!!!!! Oh joy, Oh rapture…(photo to follow)! and best of all, it faced out to the fountain in KLCC park.
