NEW RELEASE ESCAPE FROM HERE FROM SHALI
With the release of the third in the series, Escape from Here, fresh opportunities for Sha Li to meet the public and read excerpts from the new book at the 2016 Ashland Literary Festival and the Siskiyou Writers Club.
MODERN MEDIA, COMMUNICATIONS AND ENTERTAINMENT AT CHERYLPETTY.COM PRESENTS THREE VIDEO TRAILERS FEATURING SHA LI.
One reader says, “The video from the Yangtze put it in great context. Music and other pix were totally appropriate and enhanced the reading. This is the best of the reading videos you've posted.”
At the Ashland Literary Festival in October, Sha Li introduced the audience to Ronald Zhao by reading about his rescue from the river by Jimo, the peasant woman. In the second clip, the complex and seductive relationship between Mai Martin and General Huang is revealed through the casting of the fortune of New China with the I Ching.
Sha Li shared the scene at the basketball court, when Ron Zhao suffers snowy flashbacks while catching up on news about the gangster Dong Zhiwei with the Siskiyou Writers Club in September.
This third in the series, An American in Beijing, extends Operation Sundown from the second book, Wounds of Attachment, putting the Homeland Security team under the temporary authority of the megalomaniac General Huang’s control.
SHA LI SAYS
“The secondary character, Ron Zhao, was the most popular character of the first book, Beijing Abduction. To correct the imbalance, I killed him in the second book, Wounds of Attachment. Fans were dismayed. I brought him back to life in book three, Escape from Here. But is a man who was once dead, and returned to life, ever the same after?”
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Sha Li prefers the shadowy anonymity of a pseudo-existence, shedding the metroplex culture and writing in seclusion of Northern California.
