2. today, my (7th) little chapbook Dark Phantasms is released by Flutter Press - thanks again, Sandy, for the great job you have done for my work as my editor/publisher. Originally, there are 30 dark/horror poems of mine included in the collection, but later cut down to 20 as requested to materialised the project. here are the links:: http://flutterpress2009.blogspot.ca/,
3. since i founded my website Happy Yangsheng at https://www.facebook.com/happyyangsheng/ about two weeks ago, i have received more attention than i anticipated. knowing my writing is never popular, i thought i would have few readers/viewers for any literary work i do. in this site, my postings can be divided into two basic kinds: one about my thoughts and findings in my quest for holistic health; the other about recipes/therapies/knowledge/experience concerning yangsheng the Way towards wellness, happiness and longevity. i am still hesitating about whether to create another blogsite to support it. for lack of technical help and computer time, i do not know what kind of site to create and how.
4. i got 20 acceptances in september, and 18 in october.
5. to celebrate the first anniversary of, and show my love for my first grandchild (and my only one thus far), i had a group of poems titled Childhood Poetry: for Kate Emily Yuan and All Other Children published on two days ago as a dedication to her (just as in the case of my chapbook Dark Phantasms). here is the link:: http://mysticlivingtoday.com/view_page.php?ID=2077
