What do you guys think?

  1. Uhm. She doesn't look very Japanese to me. Maybe you could pass her off as one to North American readers, but I'd say she looks more Viet or Chinese-Thai. ;)

  2. You can tell? I'm hopeless. I took a test once where they gave pictures of a whole bunch of Asians and you had to say what ethnicity they were, and I totally failed. My mom, on the other hand, did terrific. She told me I was pathetic.

  3. Oh, that test. I scored nearly perfect on that, but then I'm an Asian living in Asia. lol

    Generally Japanese have more aquiline features - higher cheekbones and nose bridges in comparision to Koreans or Chinese, and their complexions are fairer. ;)

  7. I love it, Camy!!! And how exciting to finally see it!!

    Whether she looks Japanese or not (I couldn't tell), she's beautiful! And I love the Sushi Service logo. That's great!! Also the tag line--kick of wasabi. All around great! Colors, too.

    Of course, the best part is seeing "Camy Tang" on there. :)

  8. oh i love the cover! it looks so different from most christian fiction books (in a good way!)

    although i have to agree that she doesn't really look japanese either. maybe you can get the girl from babel, Rinko Kikuchi, to pose for the cover. SHE looks japanese. on the other hand, i took that asian quiz too and i failed it. i can't tell my Chinese from my Koreans.

    blahhhh i'm still in shock that i won....

  10. The cover is beautiful! Either way it will definitely stand out on the book shelf.

  11. I couldn't tell either. I just know that it's a great cover!

  12. Hmm, looks Japanese to me :-) But I live in the mountains of Arizona where the Asian populations is like 4.

    I LOVE the cover! I would definitely pick this up in the store!

  13. Great cover. Like the Mona Lisa type smile.

  14. I think it's great, Camy. This cover just draws your eyes. Great expression on her face, excellent, colors, too. They did a great job for you. I love it.

  16. But I do think it looks very cool, chick lit and it should attract a lot of readers. And that's the idea, right? Congrats!

  17. I LOVE the cover - the colors and type are gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Love the cover -- the photo, the model, the colors. However, if she really doesn't look Japanese--and I'm ashamed to say I wouldn't know--is there any chance the publisher could find a different model? If not, then maybe for the next book in the series.

  19. I love it too! Could have fooled me, don't sweat it. :O)

    I've always liked your line, "with a kick of wasabi"...that is priceless, and my favorite condiment for steak!

    Congrats on such a nice cover!

  20. I luuurrrve the cover! The red cover just screams out at me to look at it :) I really want to read your book!

  21. Looks Awesome Camy! Congratulations!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Stupendous! Classy! You rock, Camy!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think she's gorgeous and it looks AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And how cool is it to see your name on the cover? Dish, girlfriend!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Ssssssaaaassssssyyy. At least you get to see her entire face. ; ) Oh, and Camy Tang needs to be bigger. Much bigger.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Camy:
    It's beautiful!!!! Congratulations!

  26. AWESOME COVER!! I wouldn't know if she looks Japanese or not, but I do love her saucy, sassy look! How fun. Even if I didn't know you wrote it, the cover alone would entice me to pick up the book and take a second look. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. YEAH!!!

    It looks awesome - and I'm so thrilled for you!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love the cover Camy! It's very bold, and I think her facial expression and attitude are perfect for the title.

    It would definitely make me pick it up in the bookstore. And it must be so exciting to see your name on a book cover!! It's exciting for me, so I know it must be exciting for you :-) I can't wait to read it.

    BTW, I got a tea shipment from Republic of Tea today. Couldn't help but think of you, my tea buddy, when I opened it :-)

    Blessings,
    Sheryl

  29. whoo-hoo, don't you just love it?
    I do!

  30. I think the cover looks great. I'm ashamed to say I can't tell the difference between Asians...

    ReplyDelete
  31. It's beautiful, Camy! I'm bummed I wasn't a book winner. Or an honorable mention. *g*

    ReplyDelete
  32. Absolutely gorgeous cover, Camy! But since she's not Japanese-looking enough, let Ruthy pose next time. Then we can all say she's not authentic enough. lol

    I love the wispy bangs hanging down...reminds me of black chopsticks!

    ooohh.....and Camy, *you've* got a new pic too!

    Congrats, girl!

  33. I LOVE the book cover! I can't wait to read this and your new picture at the top is terrific. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh, how exciting! I love your cover! Can't wait to see it on the shelves!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like the cover though I think I must agree that she doesn't look very Japanese. I guess we're more easily used to mixtures of races and nationalities and that makes us less sensitive to the real differences. And they finally chose "Sushi for One?" as the title and gave the child a name. I wish we didn't have to wait so long.

    I love your new picture too.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

「ひとり寿司」をブログに連載します! ひとり寿司 寿司シリーズの第一作 キャミー・タング 西島美幸 訳 スポーツ狂のレックス・坂井 —— いとこのマリコが数ヶ月後に結婚することにより、「いとこの中で一番年上の独身女性」という内輪の肩書を「勝ち取る」ことについては、あまり気にしていない。コントロールフリークの祖母を無視するのは容易だ —— しかし、祖母は最終通告を出した —— マリコの結婚式までにデート相手を見つけなければ、無慈悲な祖母は、レックスがコーチをしている女子バレーボールチームへの資金供給を切ると言う。 ダグアウトにいる選手全員とデートに出かけるほど絶望的なわけではない。レックスは、バイブルスタディで読んだ「エペソの手紙」をもとに「最高の男性」の条件の厳しいリストを作った。バレーボールではいつも勝つ —— ゲームを有利に進めれば、必ず成功するはずだ。 そのとき兄は、クリスチャンではなく、アスリートでもなく、一見何の魅力もないエイデンを彼女に引き合わせる。 エイデンは、クリスチャンではないという理由で離れていったトリッシュという女の子から受けた痛手から立ち直ろうとしている。そして、レックスが(1)彼に全く興味がないこと、(2)クリスチャンであること、(3)トリッシュのいとこであることを知る。あの狂った家族とまた付き合うのはごめんだ。まして、偽善的なクリスチャンの女の子など、お断り。彼はマゾヒストじゃない。 レックスは時間がなくなってきた。いくら頑張っても、いい人は現れない。それに、どこへ行ってもエイデンに遭遇する。あのリストはどんどん長くなっていくばかり —— 過去に掲載済みのストーリーのリンクはこちらです。 *** ********** 父に白い封筒を渡される前から、レックスの心臓は張り裂けていた——冷たい日本海で真っ二つに分かれる氷河のように、耳をつんざくような鋭い音がする。 (あなたを、ワサマタユ・スポーツクラブの男女混合および女子バレーボールチームに受け入れます……) その手紙にきちんと折り目をつけて、封筒の中に戻した。そして、膝を上げて横になっているソファの隣に置かれた、コーヒーテーブルに手紙を落とした。 彼女の入部を伝えるために、その日の午前中、ダレンから電話があった。 「ダレ
