Present Burma coup is making my novel Wolf topical again

 Burma coup is making my novel topical again 

 I received over 20 positive pre-publication reviews They are in the front of the online Amazon sample. Kirkus Review:

Wolf follows Mothi Awgoke, fr his childhood in the tank corps compound in Meikhtila, political events 1962-1988 & his exile in Queens, NY. It's partially based on my own life, but Awgoke (August Hailstorm) is a fictional character I hv already started research on a sequel w another generation of dissidents pertaining to the present Feb 2021 coup, which is reaching its violent climax right now as we speak. I wish there weren't enough material to write a second Burma novel, but sadly, there is.

College costs in USA--book recommended by New York Times --cut and pasted.

THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR COLLEGE: An Entirely New Road Map for the Biggest Financial Decision Your Family Will Ever Make, by Ron Lieber. (Harper/HarperCollins, $27.99.) A comprehensive guide to the trying process of paying for higher education, Lieber’s book explains in detail how to save money, apply for aid and bargain with colleges, all while carefully acknowledging the sometimes conflicting perspectives of the parties involved. “Understood as a self-help book, ‘The Price You Pay for College’ represents an extraordinary achievement,” Daniel Markovits writes in his review. “It is comprehensive and detailed without being tedious, practical without being banal, impeccably well judged and unusually rigorous. But the main title hints at a sensibility deeper than friendly advice.”

Covid transmission from a wedding--

An outbreak in Ireland
Flag of Ireland
—what’s the source? 61 #COVID19 cases from a student social gathering, 16 from a hotel wedding. Why haven’t we learned college parties & indoor weddings are a bad idea yet? Some say I’m overdramatic in tweets, but this is why I shout from the rooftops.

BBC on Burma coup


It's like a replay of 1962 coup, but I never trust these blokes.

In 1962, then PM and his cabinet and some of our family friends were in prison for 7 years without any charges filed.

A Shan prince was arrested and died under torture.  The major Shan States' ruler's son was shot because he grabbed a ceremonial spear off the wall when the soldiers came, also at dawn.

And then all our country's tragedies began.

Current PM in Exile Dr Sein Win has written to Biden Admin, and Speaker Pelosi and Minority Leader.

Will have to go back to sanctions.
