I’m excited to announce that my short story “Off Duty” will be included in The Epigram Books Collection of Best New Singaporean Short Stories Volume 2. The book will be launched at the 2015 Singapore Writers Festival in November, and I wish I could attend the reading and events, but, alas, I will be in Los Angeles. Nevertheless, I will be sending lots of positive energy and well wishes to the writers there, and for those interested, don’t forget to grab a copy when the book is out!
For more information on the writers festival, you can visit their official page here. The line up of events and visiting authors looks good so be sure to check it out!

Too late for me to submit entries, but may I know the theme for the collection anyway?
“Off Duty” sounds like a story about a police officer or paramedic.
Hi Security Guard! From what I understand, there is no theme for this collection. My story Off Duty is not about a police officer or paramedic (good guess though!). Instead, it is about an elderly lady who was on duty cleaning restrooms.
Ah, sounds interesting! I work closely with cleaners a lot (as a security guard), so it will be interesting to read what people outside our industry think about us.
