'Raising Mixed Race' Virtual Release Party!!



YOU'RE INVITED

I'm having a party for my new book Raising Mixed Race: Multiracial Asian Children In a Post-Racial World on Friday December 11 and I want you to come! And guess what? If you use the Internet and Facebook - you CAN. What's a Facebook party you ask? It's easy. That's what it is. Facebookers (and newbies) just do what you always do. Log on to Facebook, go to the Raising Mixed Race Facebook page any time between 9:30am-1:30pm PST on Dec 11, read, like, comment, share and voila! We have a party. But suuuch a cool party. Really. I'm super excited. Here's some things you can expect:

  • Posts every few minutes - for four hours - so yeah, LOTS going on
  • Video "sneak peeks" of Raising Mixed Race chapters (2 mins or less promise!) 
  • Thread discussions (though this isn't a rant party, so light thread discussions)
  • Humor - as in memes and word games like "caption this" or "react to this"

But possibly the best part of the party? THE GIVEAWAYS. THE GIVEAWAYS. THE GIVEAWAYS. I'll be giving away 4 signed copies of Raising Mixed Race plus over 20 stellar donations by other authors, artists and filmmakers - all by/about mixed race Asians.

Scroll down to see the full list . I can't emphasize enough how special all these giveaways are. Every single one is deeply beautiful and has influenced me tremendously on my journey as a mixed-identifying person, author and mother. How do you win? I'll post a blast with the giveaway item and a not-too-hard question. The first person to email the correct answer - wins! The item will be mailed asap as an end of the year gift from us, to you.

I really do hope you'll join me if you can Friday, December 11, to celebrate the release of my book (the event is public so please invite friends too). This is the culmination of years of thinking, research, writing and I can't wait to share this moment with all of you...

See you there!
