  4. The video is here! I am so excited! I was already excited because this morning I got notice of The Night Tiger–what a gorgeous cover!–and was already excited.

    • I see they’ve taken your story’s premise and turned it into a different story. I realize this can be frustrating for a writer, but I hope you can reap the many benefits from having this great thing happen–your work be recognized as worthy of recreating in film–and it will be only the first of many more special things to come!

        That’s the trailer for an NZ horror film that came out two months after Ghost Bride (the book) was released, so unrelated. Here’s the Netflix announcement trailer link:

    Congratulations, it’s great to hear ‘The Ghost Bride’ is going to be made into a drama by Netflix, I’m looking forward to it. Indeed, I imagine many of my English Reading/Writing students (a university in Taiwan) will also be eager to see the series, as I have used “The Ghost Bride” for three years now as required winter vacation reading. Surprisingly, or maybe not, many of the students know very little about ghost brides. Although one student told me his father has some friends who really did ‘marry the dead’. Apparently some of the older generation say that if you’re a man, then marrying a dead woman will help you in your business. Hmmm

    • Hi Tim, thank you so much! I’m honored that your students have been reading THE GHOST BRIDE and I hope they enjoy it – can’t wait to see what the Netflix series will be like! 🙂

    OMG!! I’m so excited to hear this wonderful news! When will the series air? I can’t wait to watch! I’ve too been re-listening and re-reading your book over and over and over sine I attended your book fair event in Mountain View, CA. This book brings back so much wonderful memories when I was a child living in Saigon south Vietnam in a close-knit Chinese community.

    • Hi Ann,

      Me too – can’t wait to see what Netflix does! I’m not sure when the series will air, but I’m going to Singapore to visit the production in March. Will update my FB/blog when I find out! 🙂

    Just finished the audio book version of The Ghost Bride. It was incredible. So vivid and imaginative, and beautifully read by the author. I loved every word. Extremely excited about watching a filmed version of this on Netflix. ❤️

    • Thank you so much – I’m delighted that you enjoyed the audiobook! I’m excited for the Netflix series too, and can’t wait to see what it will be like! 🙂

    I’m so excited!!!!! I’ve read, listened, and reread (and now re-listened) to this book because I love it so much!

    May 16, 2019
    • Aww… thank you! I’m so honoured that you enjoyed it so much! 😍

  17. Oh my gosh! I hadn’t heard this! I am so excited to watch it, I love watching Chinese dramas so this looks amazing!
    I read The Ghost Bride a few years ago and just absolutely LOVED it, and was so excited when I heard about the Night Tiger.

    I finished the Night Tiger this week and I just truly adored it so very much. It was such a wonderful and exciting book, but I just want to say how much the romance moved me. I absolutely love reading books with a good romantic element but I am also extremely picky, yet this romance just had me breathless and reaching for the next page. I couldn’t put it down. Every interaction between them is so heavy with hidden emotion, I just loved it.

    Thank you so much for your hard work, you made me very happy. The Night Tiger is my favourite read so far this year, I adored it.

    May 29, 2019
    • Hi Poppy, sorry for the late reply but thank you for your kind words! I’m so glad you enjoyed The Night Tiger and really appreciate it. I will try my best to keep writing!😍

      October 19, 2019
  18. Hello Yangsze, I don’t want to come across as too much of a crazy fan girl, but you liked a review I did on my blog of your utterly gorgeous book The Night Tiger and I must admit I had a complete star struck moment! Thank you, I really got so excited! (I squealed, haha)
    I honestly loved the Night Tiger just so much, and also loved your first book too, I am a huge fan! You have been such an influence and inspiration for writing my own historical fiction, so thank you very much! I’m super excited for when the Netflix show drops 😻 Congratulations on all your success, it is so deserved!

    • Hi Evie, how nice to hear from you! And thank you so much for your lovely and thoughtful review, which I came across when WordPress brought it up. As a stay-up-all-night sort of reader myself, I was so delighted to hear that you enjoyed The Night Tiger, and I wish you all the very best for your future projects!🥰

      January 19, 2020
      • Thank you so much Yangsze! Good luck with your writing as well, I can’t wait to read whatever you bring out next 🙂 I hope you have a lot of fun writing it!

        January 19, 2020
  19. Wow! I am so impressed with “The Ghost Bride”! I confess it is an amazing and incredible story! I loved it so much!
    I have been reading a thousand of books recently, but it is by far one of my favorite ones. Thanks Yangsze for such lovely book. By the way, I also have a rabbit, my little boy, Sammy. I’ll write my comments of your book on my page on Instagram. It will be my first book there.

    Kisses from Brazil.

      Now I am gonna watch it on Netflix in order to make my imagination flies between the book and the scenes.
      After that, it’s time to search for “The Night Tiger”.

      May 24, 2020
    • Thank you so much for reading, Raquel! I love hearing about your rabbit (they are so cute!) and I’m so glad you enjoyed The Ghost Bride. I hope The Night Tiger is fun for you too! 🥰
