I just received an advance copy of Tiger Girl, my novel that’s officially coming out this October!
My publisher, GemmaMedia, sent me a few copies in advance of publication so that I could see the cover and layout. I’m so excited!
It’s gorgeous! Much thanks to Howard Wong of Grace Image Photography in San Francisco for the cover design.
The story follows Nea Chhim, the protagonist of Dragon Chica, on a journey to find her biological father. They were separated because of war and the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia. In Tiger Girl, Nea directly confronts her past and tries to reunite the multiple missing branches of her family. However, as is so often the case with good intentions, Nea’s quest does not turn out as she anticipated. To find out what happens, look for Tiger Girl in bookstores (or online) this October!
Mark your calendars: The book launch party will be held at Books Inc./Opera Plaza in San Francisco on October 26, 2013, beginning at 5 p.m. Cambodian American singer Laura Mam will be performing an acoustic set in Khmer and English!
