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).
