Be the first to know about new products, special offers, upcoming markets, new stockists ... and NEVER miss the Christmas deadline for ordering! One monthly newsletter, and a reminder the week before a market.
Updates about my trips to Japan, travel and tourism news, ways to support Oshika, book tour news, educational resources, ways to get involved. News goes out as and when (sometimes every few days but most likely to be every few months), and tends to be busier when I'm actually on Oshika, which is once a year.
I'm currently working on a book about toxic relationships, specifically focused on how you rebuild your life after one. I'm looking for people who are currently in, or who have been in, a toxic relationship, to participate in some research. You won't be asked to share anything about your personal experience ... you'll just be asked to share the questions you have/had when thinking about rebuilding your life. It's completely anonymous, and you can opt out any time you like. If you choose to be involved, please know that your participation will contribute to changing the lives of others. Please do not sign up for this if it is not safe for you to do so.
Perhaps the occasional summary of what's going on with the pickles or Tohoku, but mainly news about any new projects ... especially books I'm working on. I have a few in the pipeline at the moment — one about the multiple strokes I survived in my thirties, one about surviving narcissistic abuse, and my first novel. But who knows what other exciting projects might pop up! if you want to generally be kept in the loop, this is the mailing list for you. You might go months without hearing from me, and then there might be a little flurry of activity, but I'll try not to bombard you!
Please do get in touch if you'd like to get involved with any of my projects, or if you'd just like to reach out. I'll try to respond as soon as I can.
