It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since Josh and I’s book Formosa Moon was published. Ever the faster blogger, Josh has already written up an anniversary post here.
In honor of Formosa Moon’s 1-year anniversary, we’re asking friends and readers in and out of Taiwan – to a little support behind the book, its authors, our publisher Things Asian Press, and of course, Taiwan. How can you help? Do read on!
Buy Formosa Moon:
If you haven’t already read Formosa Moon, go out and buy a copy from Amazon, Powell’s, or some other fine retailer.
Even if you’ve already read Formosa Moon, why not buy a copy for one of your pals who’s thinking of traveling abroad? It’s a great way to entice them to visit (and maybe even live in) Taiwan.
Review Formosa Moon:
If you have read Formosa Moon (or feel as if you have an intuitive grasp of the book from having followed our escapades online…who are we to judge, being as much a part of the information economy as anyone else), go and write up a review at Amazon, Powells or GoodReads (though at this point, a verified review on our Amazon page helps out the most.
Other ways to help:
Know someone who writes/reports on Taiwan/Asian news? Let them know about Formosa Moon.
Feel like introducing your favorite US Congressperson or Senator to Taiwan? Send them a copy of Formosa Moon! (Ted Cruz has a copy! Shouldn’t Bernie Sanders have one too?)
Are you a member of a book club? Suggest Formosa Moon as your next book.
Active on social media? Post a photo of yourself with Formosa Moon in front of something interesting on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtags #FormosaMoon #Taiwan.
Like Travel in Taiwan itself, the possibilities are endless.
As for the authors, Josh and I recently attended Boston’s TECO anniversary party for the National Day for the Republic of China (Taiwan). A write up of the event can be read here.
