Signed Copies of The Super Cute Book of Kawaii!

It’s just one week until my first book is published! You can now buy signed copies of The Super Cute Book of Kawaii directly from me, plus cute signed bookplates.

The Super Cute Book of Kawaii

If you missed my announcements,  The Super Cute Book of Kawaii is a colourful lifestyle guide to the world of kawaii with fashion, beauty, crafts, home, food, shopping, visiting Japan and more. It includes some of kawaii’s biggest names including Hello Kitty, Pusheen and Rilakkuma – and even has a squishy cover. You can read the full description at Penguin Books.

If you’d like a signed copy, they’re now available in my shop for £12.99 with free UK shipping. I designed some cute bookplates and can personalise one with your name and a doodle. For international folks – or if you’ve already pre-ordered the book elsewhere, or plan to pick one up in person – you can buy just the signed bookplate to stick inside.

While buying direct gets me the most money per book, buying it anywhere is still super awesome of you –  it all helps the publisher decide whether to create translations for other regions or let me write another book.

It’s available from Amazon worldwide and The Book Depository (with free international shipping) + high street book shops, or order through your local book shop. There’s a digital ebook edition too – search on your Kindle etc. Get all the links at Super Cute Kawaii.

If you can’t afford to buy the book, you can still help out by sharing it on social media, requesting it from your local library or adding it to your Goodreads shelves or Amazon wish list. We’ll be having a giveaway on SCK soon too. Thanks so much for your support!
