I stumbled upon yet another local litblog a week or two ago but was sworn to secrecy until the bloggers decided that it was time to launch the site officially. Now I can link it in my sidebar and invite the rest of you to take a look.
Redwhite Spot is written by the staff of MPH Bookstores and features news of events and book reviews. Welcome to the blogosphere you guys!
(I wonder, though, if Livejournal is a good blogging platform, particularly as it can be slow to load ... and WordPress and Blogger are whizzier ...)
Meanwhile there are a couple of MPH events this weekend. The Hi-Tea for Authors is happening this afternoon at MPH 1 Utama, and since the readings planned for today aren't happening, I will be there and on the panel.
The Breakfast Club, usually held on the last Saturday of the month, has shifted this month to a Sunday! Tomorrow in MPH Bangsar Village 2 you can catch up with Crocodile Fury novelist, Beth Yahp, and Yvonne Lee, author of the hilarious collection of mile-high anecdotes: The Sky is Crazy: Tales from a Trolley Dolly.
And the younger writers among you shouldn't forget that the closing date for MPH's Search for Young Malaysian Writers is 31st August. Screw your patriotism to the sticking place, as Billy the Bard might have said.
