DETAIL: This is a how-to manual that uses the skills of needlecraft to create original manga-inspired images. It got rave reviews from both craftworkers and manga & anime fans, and you can have a copy dedicated to you or anyone you choose. I’ll also pay the shipping anywhere in the world.
BIO: I am an historian of Japanese animation and manga, and an author of nonfiction with 10 books published and 2 more due out in 2014. All my books have sold steadily and well, making money for me over the past 20 years. I also edited magazines for a decade so I understand how to help writers do their best work.
My other areas of interest include the history of dress, fashion dolls, poetry and travel. You can read more about me here: http://helenmccarthy.wordpress.com
