I Have a Book Contract!

Jengdau: excellent or genuine
In the past, stores were famous for their honesty. Jengdau meant to give the exact weight measured by a dau (dipper). The shopkeeper would use the measuring tool to obtain the precise amount desired. While jengdau originally referred to the exactness of quantity, it now also means the excellence of quality.

Measuring out the right amount.

I have a jengdau book contract! My Taiwanese generational novel has been picked up by Martin Sisters Publishing. After years of writing/revising, crafting query letters, and honing synopses, my work has paid off. Thank you for all your support throughout this journey!
