    Two months on the bestseller list!

    Wow. Thanks you guys... I'm amazed that we've managed to keep our position in the top 10 for so long - and we still haven't dropped from No. 4! Being a Singaporean, I can't help caring about rankings ;).

    Check out the previous bestseller lists. You'll notice that over the past six weeks, we're the only book that hasn't ever fallen in the rankings. Some books thrive on hype but have no substance: they're released with a bang and then they fade away (Get Rich With Water???). But so far, it looks like the people who've bought the book are recommending it to other people - demand just isn't slacking.

    I hope all this outreach actually means that more people are becoming aware of gay, lesbian and bisexual people's experience in Singapore. But for all I know, it's the same twenty people buying all the copies to use as paperweights.

    Thanks to the people who came to my poetry book launch for "last boy"! Hope more of you can stop by this coming Friday!
