Today is the day! MAHIMATA, the sequel to MARKSWOMAN, is out in the world. The Asiana duology is complete. I am pleased and excited to share this story that I began so long ago. And also sad that it’s over. It is such a bittersweet feeling . Perhaps I have lived in the world of Asiana too long, and grown to love these characters too much. Thanks to all the readers who’ve taken this journey with me. Perhaps we will travel to Asiana again some day.
Meanwhile, if you happen to live in or near Toronto, come help me celebrate at my book launch! There will be chai and samosas, a brief reading, and a surprise song.
A big thank you to my editors Priyanka Krishnan and David Pomerico, the team of Harper Voyager, and my lovely agent Mary C. Moore for this beautiful book. I wrote in solitude for years, and Asiana would not have seen the light of day without them.
