And now, in a great coincidence of timing, I'm thrilled to reveal the Tomo cover. The official title is Tomo: Friendship Through Fiction--An Anthology of Japan Teen Stories. The Tomo cover features a bold and sweeping calligraphic 友 (tomo) which is the Japanese kanji character for friendship. Along the lower edge of the cover, wrapping around to the back, are figure sketches by the incredible John Shelley, an illustrator who has spent many years in Japan and is currently based in London. Authors may just recognize a few of their story characters!
So tell your friends, and help us get the word out about Tomo! Publication date is March 10, 2012.
