Meetup/Book event: Sunday September 27th, 5-7pm in Tokyo

Hi all,

I am THRILLED to announce that I will be participating in a Book Launch / Book Party with three other super-talented writers on Sunday September 27th from 5:00pm – 7:00pm. You can RSVP on the Facebook event page here.

The theme is “Married to the Mob” – four authors who write about their life as the “gaijin” (foreign) wife of a Japanese man. Each author has a different background and story to tell (mine is young, newlywed life) – covering topics like infertility, language barriers, and adoption.

The lineup is:

  • Leza Lowitz, Yoga goddess, founder of Tokyo’s Sun & Moon studio, & author ofHere Comes the Sun: A Journey to Adoption in 8 Chakras (Stone Bridge Press)
  • Grace Buchele Mineta, Cartoonist, founder of the hit blog & You Tube channel Texan in Tokyo, & author of Confessions of a Texan in Tokyo (Ps – this one is ME!).
  • Tracy Slater, Four Stories founder & author of The Good Shufu: Finding Love, Self & Home on the Far Side of the World (Putnam), a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Selection & National Geographic Great New Read.
  • Liane Wakabayashi, Founder of Genesis Arts Center of Tokyo & author of a memoir-in-progress about–you guessed it–life as a gaijin wife!

Basically, it’s going to be a fun night. Ryosuke and I will both be there to answer questions, chat, take selfies with you, and sign your books!

I will also be selling signed copies of all three of my comics (if you want to buy any, please leave a comment on which one – since I have literally NO idea how many people will show up / what books people want to buy). The other authors will also be selling their books (I think).

If you can’t come to this one – I will also be holding a book event / meet & greet on November 28th in Austin, Texas (and will post more about that later).

  1. Hi Grace!
    I would like to buy your masterpieces! I am going to go there with German guy. I’m thrilled to see you guys りょうすけさん&グレイスさん.

  2. Planning on flying in from Louisville, KY with the hubby. Hope I’m able to make it! :)

  3. Hi Grace!
    I’m Planning to make it to your event. I’m also a Texan living in Tokyo (from Austin actually!) so I’d love to purchase your most recent book.
    Hope to meet you soon!

    Omggggg I’ll have to come see you in Austin!!!

  5. I’m coming, can you please bring a copy of your three books, thanks Graceさま?

  6. Sounds like a great event! I’d love to attend, but not this time unfortunately ^^

  7. Good to know. Thanks for your response. The flooding made the national network news here in the U.S.; awesome volumes of water, huge waves, and terrible damage to structures. What about your home? Is (was) the building at risk? Ryosuke’s parents and their property OK?

  8. Are you OK? Way off topic, I know, but no other way to ask an urgent question: Are you affected at all by the awful flooding in the Asahi/Ibaraki area?

    • Hi Richard,
      Ryosuke and I are actually in Hokkaido right now – till the end of September. So we’re totally safe.
      There is a TON of flooding (in Ibaraki) where his family lives, but they live on high ground so they should be totally fine. We hope.

  9. Congrats on your upcoming gathering. I hope someday you’ll do a book signing in the SF Bay area where I live. It’d be on your way to/from Tokyo…..hint, hint, hint.

  10. Congratulations, it sounds really thrilling to be part of it. Looking back since I first time saw your comics her son the blog and the did the kickstarter campaign it is truly amazing how much you managed already. :)

  11. I just read the Good Shufu and I’ve been reading your blog for a while, I SOOO want to go…but I have a business trip over that weekend:(
