View Full Version : Anyone from Hong Kong?

I have written a YA sci fi novel set in 22nd century Hong Kong. The problem? I've never been to Hong Kong, let alone in the 22nd century! In writing the book, I took the advice of an old professor about writing a topic you know nothing about: make an educated guess and worry about the facts later. If there's anyone from Hong Kong who would be willing to (ideally) look over the manuscript or even just answer a laundry list of questions, that would be absolutely amazing!

Here's the basic premise of the book to see if you're interested:

Neurodivergent girl in future Hong Kong police state has to save her cybernetic best friend and family of criminal masterminds from a murderous dictator she previously revered

Let me know if you're interested! Cheers :D

Been to HK a few times, before it reverted back to China, and could answer a few questions. Regretfully don't have time to read the book. Could answer some questions...if you don't find someone wo IS from there.

My wife, who was born there, says I might as well have been. We visit relatives every year. Two novels set in HK so far. You can PM me if you want.
