Are you planning an English language version? We are so ignorant of Oriental stories and history. I know more about England than I do about Malaysia which is just silly. Congratulations on the short listing. All fingers crossed.

Dearest Stafford,
My books are all in English! Perfect for you to get to know and love our Oriental tales. SITI and ONAGKIU not published yet, hopefully soon.

But you should get NAGA - A Legend of Tasik Chini available at XLibris, or Amazon.
