MOON PALACE - September 13

I had a fun virtual event with Moon Palace Books on September 13. Thank you to Andrea Tritschler and Moon Palace and to everyone who tuned in! The recording of the presentation will be posted on the Moon Palace website soon. Signed and personalized books can be ordered here!


The Virtual Book Launch on August 1 was a success! While we couldn't make this an in-person event, it was still fun celebrating with everyone. This series is near and dear to my heart and it's incredible to know it's finally out in the world. 

During the launch, all four books in the series shot to the top spots in New Releases for Asian American Children's Books on Amazon. Thank you again to all of the readers for your amazing support! 

Here I am signing books at Wild Rumpus and Moon Palace!
