In anticipation of my new book, Land of Hope, hitting Amazon stores at the end of September, certainly no later than October 2012, I am giving away three copies of the first two instalments of my ‘Journey to the West’ trilogy, The Same Moon, and Trials of Life. Yes, that’s right, a total of 6 e-books to give away, in the month of September.
I am sharing a short book review from Amazon below, and if you like the sound of it, you can easily win a copy for your Kindle or e-reader of your choice. All you need to do is to leave a comment below, giving me your email address, or drop me a line via Facebook or Twitter. Then I shall contact you with a free coupon via Smashwords. Please indicate which book you would like to win – there is no need to read one before or after the other, as each book has independent story-lines. The common link? They all have the same protagonist, Pearl Zhang.
“The same moon (journey to the west) was a joy to read. The author’s natural ability to bring characters and events to life is thoroughly displayed throughout the story. Upon reading the novel, one can easily envisage the main character Pearl and the people around her; all of whom, despite being fictional, do possess such moving and powerful emotions. History is also cleverly inserted in the storyline without taking over the main plot, yet its presence undeniably important in shaping the main character’s destiny. I am also inspired by the sense of optimism that shines through every page. The author’s “glass half full” outlook on life certainly has made an impact on me as a reader. Junying’s sharp observation and her quick wit also contribute in making this book a thoroughly enjoyable piece of literature. This is a real gem in the modern literature world and will definitely be one proudly displayed on my bookshelf if it ever becomes a paperback.
Trials of life is beautifully written, I absolutely love the writing style (won’t spoil you on how it is written). At times my eyes well up at such intense emotions seeping through the page, I was gripped from the first page and cannot put the kindle down all weekend. Once again Junying has proved that one does not have to have a printed book to be considered a good writer, a very good one indeed. I can’t wait for the next novel to come out.” – A Tran, UK Reader
