June will be such an epic month! On the publisher side, I am fully focus on the promotion of Otaku Tōkyō isshūkan. On the author-illustrator side, I dedicate myself to the completion of Fraisie, la magie de la pâtisserie. On the events side, there are an exhibition, signing sessions and the Passion Japon festival to come. Finally, on my very personal side – and this will be the icing on the strawberry – I will once again take a plane to Japan just after my last signing session late June!!
Otaku Tōkyō isshūkan already benefits from a wonderful reception among readers: there are numerous sales, a high ranking among the best sellers in bookstores and enthusiastic press articles. What a success! The author is stunned by such an effect for his first solo release. And I feel I have done my job well and have embellished significantly a life, so I am glad ^___^
Fraisie, la magie de la pâtisserie is my ultimate book ^o^! 8 months of gestation, creation, improvements… Actually, not 8 months but a full 30 years life, filled with dreams, creativity and experience, culminating in this book *___* It’s coming soon, it will be an explosion of joy when it releases!
The Rosalys exhibition starts. I will sign Fraisie. In fact, I intended the publications of UP editions for the festival Passion Japan since the beginning. This festival will take place in the Japanese Garden of Nantes – the island of Versailles – on June, 23th and 24th. UP editions will have a booth with not only its books but also art prints, postcards and goods! It will be a colorful stand with beautiful giant posters!
Japan, I just went there in February-March for my 30th birthday, I fulfilled one of my dreams. And when I am passionate about something, my entourage is often contaminated with what I love ^o^ So my mother has for unattainable dream to visit Japan. She turns 60 this summer, so why wouldn’t I realize her dream? We only have one mom, we would not be what we are without her. That’s why I’ll go to Japan for a second time, this time by taking her on the plane, it’s my awesome gift, savings are made to be well used and I think it is a good occasion ^___^
2012, the year of the end of the world? Much better: The year where all dreams come true! Good month in June for you, enjoy 2012 a lot! Bite into life like into a beautiful strawberry ^o^
