Blog Tour for Ghost Cave: a novel of Sarawak by Elsie Sze

This week I have the honor of kicking off the blog tour for Elsie Sze's excellent work of historical fiction, Ghost Cave: a novel of Sarawak. The story, set primarily in the mid-1800s and the 1960s, follows the adventures of two young men as they chase ideals, fortunes and love in the jungles of Borneo. Set in a fascinating--but largely unexplored--period of history, it contains surprises at every turn. A long-ago tragedy, a buried treasure and a harrowing guerrilla war are just part of what makes this exceptional tale a highly recommended read.

I worked on the publication of Ghost Cave, and I'm excited to share it with anyone who has an interest in the history of Malaysia, the life of Chinese immigrants in Borneo, and a touch of the supernatural.

Elsie's blog tour starts here, with the video interview we recorded when Elsie was in Hong Kong for her book launch at the FCC.

On Tuesday, you'll find a review of the book by Susan Blumberg-Kason, who has excellent taste and blogs often about the Asia Pacific region.

On Wednesday, dedicated Hong Kong book blogger and Women in Publishing Society member Laura Besley will review Ghost Cave.

Then, on Thursday, you can head back to Susan Blumberg-Kason's site for a guest post by Elsie herself, which is sure to be fascinating.

Finally, on Friday you can find a written interview with Elsie back on Laura's blog.

Visit Elsie's blog on Saturday for a full list of any links you missed, more reviews of the novel, or just to say hello!

Now, here is Elsie Sze telling us more about her writing and her family connection to the story:


You can find Ghost Cave: a novel of Sarawak in Hong Kong bookstores, online worldwide in paperback and all major e-book formats (Kobo, Nook, Apple), and of course on Amazon Kindle.

  1. Nice write-up! Being able to write creatively is something not all of us are capable of. Count yourself blessed because you have a talent. Getting into the mood in writing does not have a set of rules to follow. ‘To each his own’ is what people say; however, a list of suggestions wouldn’t hurt.mood in writing
