I have nothing against Fantasy using old English, thou's, thee's, maketh's, and whatnot to the author's heart's content, but I simply do not want to follow the trend in my Fantasy. Hence the more or less modern way my characters tend to talk and think. Same goes with the world of Atlantis, which I wanted to have both an ancient and modern/steampunk feel to it. It was a risk, but I'm glad I took it.(less)

Hey Naddy, thanks for your question!

My first book The Forgotten Goddess is available worldwide on Amazon only. But for reasons beyond my control, it's not available on Amazon China. So perhaps what you can do is order it on Amazon.com
(https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DZSC1B4) and have it shipped to your Chinese address. That is, if you want to get it in paperback. If, however, you want to get the eBook, then, provided you can download eBooks without any problems in China, you'll get it directly on your Kindle, or, if you do not own a Kindle, on your tablet/PC/laptop/etc. After downloading and installing the free Kindle App whose link is located right under my book cover on Amazon entitled "READ ON ANY DEVICE," you'll be able
to read it anywhere on your tablet/PC/laptop/etc.

I know, it's a bit of a hurdle, and believe me, I wish it were easier for my readers based in China to get my book, but I'm afraid there's no way around it. Yet.

Take care and thank you so much for your interest in The Forgotten Goddess.(less)

OK, this book already has enough reviews touting its quality (and deservedly so!), so I'll be brief.

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
