Delve Into The Secrets of The History of Magic in North America With New Short Writings By J.K. Rowling

To initiate Harry Potter fans into the wizarding world "on the other side of the pond", J.K. Rowling has a collection of original stories entitled "Magic in North America", which are available on Pottermore.com starting from 8 March.

The writings will help fans get familiar with what's coming up in "Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them", the next movie from the Harry Potter universe that is set in New York, and several decades before what took place in the first Harry Potter book series.

History of Magic in North America”, a 100-second video released on the J.K. Rowling's website served as an introduction to the first instalment of her new works. Each story - a total of four - will be released exclusively on the website everyday on 10 PM Singapore time (6 AM PST; 2 PM GMT), from 8 March to 11 March.

At Kinokuniya - "Land of the Meat Munchers" Meet-The-Author Session with Zombies and Blood-Red Skies

If you think the book "Land of the Meat Munchers" is a foodie's guide to the best meat dishes found around Red Dot Island, or some sordid story involving a lot of plump juicy booty, think again. Although, come to think of it, "Land of the Meat Munchers" does involve a whole lot of writhing bodies, but of a far less sexier kind.

The book, by ex-ST journalist now-freelance writer Nicholas Yong (whom Red Dot Diva meets in the local geek world from time to time), is a tale about 3 young survivors trying to make their way from Ghim Moh to Tiong Bahru MRT station during a zombie apocalypse in Red Dot Island.

The book started off with undergraduate Jim scrounging for more food and supplies around the Ghim Moh HDB estate when he met an already unhinged Serina, who saved him from a near fateful "uncle"-zombie attack. While driving along Mount Sinai Road, they bumped (literally) into Bollywood-handsome Raj with a love for cooking, and the trio banded together to keep those hungry undead gnashers out of their way.

These Are Asian Werewolves, Lah!

Last Thursday night, a small cozy bunch of readers gathered at an East-side neighbourhood restaurant called The Garden Slug to give support to local writer J Damask's (@jolantru) digital book launch. The urban fantasy book is titled "Wolf At The Door" and published by Lyrical Press.

The Garden Slug was a snug little restaurant in a rather secluded location, so Red Dot Diva was quite surprised to see that there was already a rather busy group of diners on a mid-week.

It was definitely very nice to meet J Damask for the first time that night. Damask was really excited about the book's launch and admitted that she was nervous and happy at the same time.
