A Writer’s Muse: My Favorite Place to Write with Cindy Pon

j-eatonMy absolute favorite place to write is the local boba shop. I’ve been writing my novels here since at least 2011.

I love it because they have nice long hours, and they serve both delicious food as well as drinks. Everything I need as a writer if I’m looking for a long writing binge.

(An author must be fed and have her milk teas and coffees!)

It doesn’t hurt that the cafe is often filled with #cuteasianboys to help inspire me in my writing! 😀

I’ve been coming for so long that the owner knows my name. You really cannot beat that.


Looks yummy. I think I need to find a boba shop of my own!


Can I hear some COVER LOVE???!!!

Here’s what Cindy’s new novel SACRIFICE is all about:

Sacrifice, the sequel to Serpentine, plunges Skybright into the terrifying underworld where demons are bred and whisks her up to the magnificent Mountain of Heavenly Peace where the gods dwell.

Stone is stripped of his immortal status and told to close hell’s breach, which mysteriously remains open, threatening mortals.

Zhen Ni, Skybright’s former mistress and friend, has been wed to the strange and brutish Master Bei, and finds herself trapped in an opulent but empty manor. When she discovers half-eaten corpses beneath the estate, she realizes that Master Bei is not all that he seems.

As Skybright works to free Zhen Ni with the aid of Kai Sen and Stone, they begin to understand that what is at risk is more far-reaching then they could ever have fathomed.

  1. We have that tea around the universities, but such a lovely place with community to sit and write, sadly no.
    Great covers!

  2. boba is also a term not used here in the UK. Type of Tea??????? I always thought that was something you force down people’s throats when they’re sick … REAL men drink coffee … 🙂
    Going somewhere “♫ Where they know your name …”♫ isn’t restricted to certain TV series. When I was researching one of my own novels I visited a small village in Co. Roscommon [Ireland] where my family originally came from. Two years later I walked into the pub (“The Thatched House”) and was immediately greeted [“Paul! Comas ata tu?”] as if I’d only been away 24 hours ……. 🙂

  3. I don’t know what a boba shop is. Is that pathetic? Is it like a bento shop (where the main dish served is bento)? If so, what is boba? I’m a lifetime learner so I’m looking forward to learning something today.
