It is with a warm thank you that I point your direction to an author spotlight by the great supporter or writers, Morgen Bailey, on the newly published poet, Janet Tan. Janet’s debut collection, ‘On The Edge of Consciousness‘, was published earlier in the month by MetaPlume and it has already received two 5-star reviews on Amazon. Print copy sales just outsold the eBook copy sales over the weekend also.
Here’s a snippet:
“Janet Tan, born and raised in the exotic, jungle-covered peninsula of west Malaysia, is a post-graduate student of accounting and management living in Adelaide, Australia. If pressed, she couldn’t tell you how old she was when she first held a book in her hands but ever since she was taught to read, her “full-on European nose” could be found buried in a book.
In her formative years, she grew up in a high-rise apartment. Other kids would be downstairs running around with their friends, playing and shouting and being children in general while she’d be sitting indoors reading yet another new book. It wasn’t that she was anti-social; being their only child and hard to come by, her parents just preferred that she was safe within their sight. Yes, she was brought up to be seen and not heard, to only speak when spoken to, and her mother – bless her soul – was not one to spare the rod when absolutely necessary. That is not to say that she doesn’t appreciate how she spent her time. Her childhood was a mishmash of adventures in strange lands and fictional planets, thanks to her local library.”
