I celebrated New Year's Eve with my family riding roller coasters and having warm funnel cakes! The best way to bring in the New Year is to try something new so I rode a roller coaster I haven't been on before!
2018 was a year I tried many new things, which has helped me grow as a person and professionally. I decided to enter my films into film festivals first rather than put them out for distribution immediately as I have done in the past. After winning 25 film festival awards and 47 official selections/nominations; it has proven my films/tv shows are award-winning and top-notched. I wouldn't put out anything that is less than award-winning.
I also created an imprint for my romantic comedies and also steamier romances, which was a hilarious success since it fell into popular culture status. The books in this imprint which I wrote were written under a pen name as well.
In 2018, my publishing and production company began Sparklesoup STEM, which publishes and produce STEM books and shows for children through teens. Our books were featured at the OC Children's Book Festival, Boys and Girls Club, and now will be part of Read Across America in U.S. Schools.
Looking forward to 2019! Bigger things are coming! Including the premiere of the Live Stage performance of The Summer Pact, which is a Loving Summer Novel. Possible early release of the Bitter Frost Film (???). More book series. More books!
Oh, and I am personally excited about this - the Escape Games Global Release of Sparklesoup's Books - Bitter Frost, Loving Summer, FADE, Amazon Lee Adventures and more!
I've always dream big even when some people have tried to make me feel small. Fortunately, my dreams are not just mine, but the dreams of other people. My success reflects the success of all the indies, all the women pioneers, all the Asian Americans with the dream of pursuing a better life in America, all the mothers/daughters/sisters/wives who have dreamed of making a career out of their own ideas and hard work, and all those founders/innovators who have come across naysayers and obstacles in their pursuit to change the world.
Thank you readers, viewers, supporters, and fellow dreamers for all your continued love and support in 2018. Let's make 2019 even greater!
Love and Sincerity,
