Have any of you seen the Amazon series “Red Oaks” with Jennifer Grey, Paul Reiser, Freddy Roman, Gina Gershon, Richard Kind and more? My dear friend (although not a Mah Jongg player!) Jodi D told me that I must watch this series, now in its second season. So, this afternoon I watched the pilot and then binge-watched right into Episode 2…and guess what I saw…the women at the Red Oaks Country Club playing Mah Jongg! Seriously, Mah Jongg is everywhere!!! Now I just have to contact the producers and let them know that in reality these women would have been playing with NMJL sets and racks because I definitely heard them say, “I still don’t have any Jokers!”
Well, the big day has finally arrived! Amazon has sent out emails stating that you will be receiving our book today. Please let me know your thoughts – I can’t wait to hear what you think about the book!!!
And, if you like it, I hope you will write reviews on Amazon – I will be very thankful if you do so!
Recently I heard about a discussion concerning a book called Crak Bam Dot Mah Jongg by 2wice Arts Foundation that is up for sale on Amazon for around $160. Suddenly I realized what book they were discussing – it is the catalogue sold in the bookstores/gift shops of the museums that have shown the exhibit, Project Mah Jongg.
The other day I wrote about Didi Lee Gallo, the very gifted artist who will restore tiles or carve new ones to match missing tiles from a set but I neglected to give you her contact information. Dee has a beautiful website showcasing her amazing artistry. You can reach her at http://www.redcoinmahjong.com/.
Also, the cover to my new book has been revised (thankfully) and now has the correct title and a credit to our wonderful photographer, Michel Arnaud:
The book is available at a special discounted price found at this link on Amazon.com. The book is also available on Goodreads.com at https://www.goodreads.com/user/rate_books?reg_path=true#art (with thanks to Ray Heaton for alerting me to this!).
We are so excited and honored by everyone’s response to the pre-order of the book – thanks so much to all of you!
