Press Kit for Book #1 (My Japanese Husband Thinks I’m Crazy)
My first comic book, My Japanese Husband Thinks I’m Crazy was funded a little over $14,000 via Kickstarter and was self-published on November 14th, 2014.
Grace Buchele Mineta is a native Texan, founder of the hit blog “Texan in Tokyo,” YouTuber, and author of the autobiographical comic books, “My Japanese Husband Thinks I’m Crazy“, “My Japanese Husband (still) Thinks I’m Crazy“, and “Confessions of a Texan in Tokyo.” She got into the writing business by accident and currently lives in Tokyo with her husband, Ryosuke, where she blogs and draws comics about their daily life.
Though she will forever be a Texan girl at heart, she has lived and travelled all over the globe. When she’s not drawing comics or blogging, you can find her cooking with her husband, hiking all over Japan, and watching crappy daytime television.
