New on Gwulo: 2021, week 37

A look at what's new on the Gwulo website...






Book news

A few weeks ago I mentioned that sales of Gwulo's books had passed 5,000 copies. We've since passed another milestone, when the regular sales report from Bookazine shows they have sold over 1,000 copies of Gwulo's books to date, 1,005 to be precise!

Often the larger bookstores won't deal with self-published authors like me, so I'm very grateful that Bookazine were willing to take a risk on a new local author with my first book and have carried each new book since. With every fifth copy sold through a Bookazine store, they've been an invaluable way to reach Hong Kong's readers.

A very different looking Shenzhen! This is worth viewing full screen and zooming in to see the detail.
