Little Jiang, a rollicking middle-grade caper about evil morticians, thousand-year-old fox spirits, Bagua Masters with laser blasters and a pint-size hopping Chinese vampire is OUT NOW in Australia!
Books + Publishing says “It’s impossible to adequately sum up the untameable punk spirit that thrums between the lines of Little Jiang; simply put, this book slaps.”

Anna Chiu has her hands pretty full looking after her brother and sister and helping out at her dad’s restaurant, all while her mum stays in bed. Dad’s new delivery boy, Rory, is a welcome distraction and even though she knows that things aren’t right at home, she’s starting to feel like she could just be a normal teen.
But when Mum finally gets out of bed, things go from bad to worse. And as Mum’s condition worsens, Anna and her family question everything they understand about themselves and each other.

Stumbled across Words & Nerds on Twitter! Not disappointed. Interesting conversations, interviews & reminds me of why reading is so pleasurable
Wow unexpected !
What a great fun and interesting interview format. Loved the Craig Johnson episode, will definitely check the other episodes out!
Great way to connect with authors
What a delightful podcast! I enjoyed the conversation and wanted to immediately buy the book the author talked about even though it's not my usual genre. It's so fun to hear about how the book came together and their goals and inspiration. The hosts ask very thoughtful questions. Highly recommend!
