My manga: main title & artist announcement! 発表:空手道漫画と漫画家!

My manga story is finally coming to life!

The main title will be "Sonny Leads" volume 1.

The sub-title has yet to be decided.

It is an English language karate novel set in Japan.

The story is going to be fully illustrated in a Japanese manga cartoon style covering 160 pages, with 30-40 pages dedicated to explaining the karate community (competition leagues & tournaments, associations, national team, famous dojo, etc) in Japan today.

The second part of this announcement is very exciting too! The famous Japanese manga artist, Genshi Kamobayashi, has agreed to create all the manga images panel by panel and he is now working hard on the story.

Sonny Leads will be on sale worldwide from March 2014.

There are more details on the official blog at www.sonnyleads.com and on Twitter at @sonnyleadsmanga. The official homepage will be updated from January 2014 and details on where to see previews and how to pre-order will be announced then.

Much more info to follow... pictures, official cover art and the global book signing tour schedule...
