I am trying something a little bit new, which will be a way for me to keep track of my goals and writing progress. I feel like it is good for me to track this stuff, if only so I can look back and see things slowly taking shape. I have a bad habit of aiming for rather crazy goals in terms of my writing progress, and then instead of feeling happy and proud of everything I did achieve, I instead feel sad I didn’t quite make it to my wished for ideal destination … which is a very silly approach, haha. So here is what I achieved this month in terms of my writing! 🙂 … More Lee Evie WRITING Diaries: November 2020
This is a dark, slow burn and lush crime novel, translated from the original Japanese. I kind of had to let it sit for a while after finishing, to gather my thoughts. I loved reading this, it was so easy to sink into, atmospheric and creepy, with a very interesting framework for telling a crime mystery. … More BOOK THOUGHTS: The Aosawa Murders by Riku Onda

Today’s episode is a weird one, because it is a PUBLICATION DAY episode! The second book in Lee Evie’s Promise Series, which is set during the Joseon dynasty of old Korea, is out today. PROMISE THIEF is a dark and romantic mystery adventure about a gisaeng trying to make a better future for herself. But because it would be weird to release an episode of a kdrama podcast and not talk about kdrama, Lee Evie is also discussing her feelings around the totally swoony, charming and funny gem of a mini Korean drama, SPLASH SPLASH LOVE. This Korean drama was released in 2015 and stars the always wonderful Kim Seul-gi, the very handsome Yoon Doo-joon, and also side roles by Jin Ki-joo and Ahn Hyo-seop. This is a time slip drama worth your time! … More Kdrama Podcast 67: PROMISE THIEF publication day and SPLASH SPLASH LOVE kdrama overview
