It's been a year, but what a year it was!

I've finished and published my first novel: Pindakaas en Sushi! It's a Dutch young adult book about Marle, a sixteen year old girl, who visits an anime convention for the first time. She's skeptical at first, but soon gets pulled into the wondrous world of Japanese fan culture, cosplay and gaming. During one turbulent summer weekend, Marle struggles with her identity, her group of friends and an unexpected, cosplaying love...

Not only did I write this out of a great enthusiasm for the scene in the Netherlands, I also set up my own publishing label to bring it to life. The company is called Uitgeverij Leeuwenhart, and I plan to publish lots of books aimed at a geek audience. Expect science fiction, films, gaming and geek related books!

Here is the link to the site where you can read more (in Dutch), and most of all, order Pindakaas en Sushi:

If you're already a fan of Japan, you'll find tons of recognizable things in the book and countless references to series, films and games. If you're new to the scene, it's an excellent place to start and learn to understand what makes our hobby (or passion, rather!) so special. And when you've read it, don't forget to tell me what you think! The best place to do that is on Goodreads:…

Happy reading!

Leuk om te horen! Als je me een beetje wilt helpen: raad het boek aan bij je vrienden en familie. Het is een hele leuke manier om andere mensen enthousiast te maken over Japan en animeconventies. Veel plezier met deel 2 alvast!

Doe je best! Het is heel leuk om boekjes te verkopen op conventies. Met jouw skills moet het zeker wat worden.

Krijg nou wat, wat leuk om jouw werk hier op DeviantART te zien! :D Heh. Ik ben een trouwe [N]gamer-lezeres en ik moet zeggen dat jouw stripjes één van mijn favoriete dingen uit het blad zijn.

Jouw gallery is ook echt gaaf. Ga zo door! :thumbsup:
