I’m back! There are so many exciting stories to tell and this is one of it.
With Malaysian Consul General to Germany, Adina Kamaruddin. She loves the Legendary Princesses of Malaysia and bought all copies that I had.
Oyez!Books and I collected more than 20 stories for my upcoming new collaborative book—of legendary princesses from around the world—at the Frankfurt Book Fair this year.
Oyez!Books, represented by Linda Tan Lingard at the fair presented the list of countries below:
- Iran (Persia)
- UK (Wales)
Stories and legends of princesses were collected from people who dropped by my table at the Malaysian stand. In some cases Linda went and asked at different country stands especially at Hall 5.0 where the international publishers were.
The next step will be to follow up with the contributors for the full story, background and image references for me to illustrate the book.
Many people at the fair loved the idea and all the more when they saw my illustrations in Legendary Princesses of Malaysia. In addition, a Spanish publisher has expressed interest in a co-edition.
Submissions and contributors were accepted only during the fair but all other queries may be addressed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
