Dear [FIRSTNAME],

First of all, thank you very much for your votes for The Age of Smiling Secrets. The winners were originally scheduled to be announced on 7 October 2020. Midway through the competition, it was announced that the awards show was re-scheduled for 27th October. Unfortunately, as of 14 October 2020, most Malaysians are now subject to living under a Movement Control Order for 2 weeks because the number of Covid-19 cases in the country rose in the last month. The upshot of all this is that I have no idea when the winners of these awards are going to be announced.

Dear [FIRSTNAME],

I have some news. Thanks to your vote, The Age of Smiling Secrets made it to the shortlist of the ‘Reader’s Choice Award’ for the Book Award 2020 organised by the National Library of Malaysia. In addition, it’s also on the shortlist for the main award (English-Adult category). This means that the novel is on the shortlist for 2 categories. I’m still shocked!

Dear [FIRSTNAME],Generally, writers choose references that are similar in nature to what they are writing about. For instance, when I wrote In the Name of the Father? Maybe Not, the references had some connection with the law because I was writing about the continuing confusion between the two legal systems in Malaysia. This was in light of the recent case where a boy, born less than six months after his parents’ marriage, was deemed illegitimate under Syariah Law.
