Book fair on Lithuania

I’ve just returned from attending the book fair in Vilnius. My novel Lotus has just been published in Lithuanian. I am pleased to report the trip was both enjoyable and successful. My event, introduced by the Lithuanian ambassador to China, the fabulous Ina Marciulionyte, was packed. And according to my publisher, the queue for my book singing was among the longest, together with the one for the president’s book, as well as a best-selling self-help book by a charismatic, long-haired priest about how to make peace with oneself. I am flattered. I was so impressed that so many people braved the cold weather to attend the book fair. The Lithuanians obviously love books and buy a lot of them, despite their modest pay.
