Anna May Wong. Thanks to a generous contribution from Emma Dowson (my longtime and very wonderful book publicist), my Kickstarter campaign for Chinatown Nights has now reached and exceeded its $2,000 target - and Emma is the winner of a unique Anna May Wong Kickstarter T-shirt. (Anna May Wong is one of the major inspirations for the central female protagonist of the novel, Lady Shao.) There are still 4 more days of the Kickstarter campaign to run, and there is no limit to how much can be raised, so if you would like to contribute, please do so by clicking on this Kickstarter link. Thank you. And huge thanks to Emma - and to all of you who have contributed so generously - for making this campaign a success. I hope the novel will be as much fun (in my usual dark way:) as the campaign!
