My 2nd best gift this year (so far)!

Today I received my 2nd best gift this year (so far)! =) There was a bulky envelope on my table when I got home and it was sent from the UK. In it was a copy of the December 2008 issue of The Journal of Modern Chinese History.


And the reason I am so elated is because I have my first article published in it! This is the fruit of many months of work: from the first time I submitted my manuscript to  the journal through many many rounds of reviews and editing (there was even a stage when I thought my article could not be published) and finally to see it published, bound and circulated is a wonderful feeling! =)

  1. Any possibility of sharing your article online? Wondering…
    The title stirred some interest in me.

  2. Hahaha…it’s a loooong article…u sure you wanna read it? =)

  3. Irwin,

    Finally arrived at your blog. Nice ! Calling yourself a prince and still not married. Must be a lot of ugly princesses out there or probably ugly female frogs.

    So happy that your article is published and circulated. I am surprised that your article is so long yet the publisher have a go at it. May be he said “Give me a break” and decided to give you one.

    Keep up the good work ! May be one day you help me with my “lame” articles. I just love a handicap at it. Got it ?

  6. Uncle D, so resourceful eh? Can find my blog without me telling you! =)

    Actually I don’t need many princesses or female frogs…just one special one will do! =)

    The original article was even longer! I had to pare it down from 15,000 words to under 10,000 words, which was difficult. Glad it finally went to print! =)

    And yes, I got your lame ‘lame’ joke (as always…=)
