Event: Demo and Book Signing at Kodomo No Matsuri

I feel awful for once again disappearing into the blog void after coming back last Halloween, but I have a good excuse, I swear!

That excuse is…

A new cookbook! Yup, that’s right! Maki and I are teaming up again to do a sequel to Yum-Yum Bento Box, and right after Halloween was when we started working on the book. We were on a really rough timeline, and with work and the holidays, I just lost all my time to blog. The book will hopefully be released by the end of the year, and I’m super excited about this one, as Maki and I have tons of great new designs (and maybe some new ones you saw on here recently!) for it.

Hopefully we’ll do a title reveal in the summer and after that, a cover reveal. I feel like I know a lot more about the things we can do ourselves to push the book’s sales, so I’m quite excited to rev the marketing engine this time!

In other news, I’m going to be doing a bento demonstration and book signing at Hilo Hongwanji next month, so if you didn’t get a chance to come to my signing back in 2010, please stop by to say hi!

The event will be at Sangha Hall on Saturday, May 14. I’ll be doing two demos, one at 10 AM and another at 12 PM.
