Today is the fourth birthday of Cacy and Kiara and the Curse of the Ki'i by Roy Chang. This year, Roy has made strides in writing the second adventure. He's also had the honor to do signings at the Biennial Children's Literature Hawaii Conference, Barnes and Noble Ala Moana, Other Realms Comics and Games Specialist, Comic Con Honolulu, and Amazing Hawaii Comic Con. Next month he'll be at the Aiea Family Craft Fair on November 5th and the Aki Matsuri November 13th at the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai'i. Check out their new Honouliuli exhibit to see the giant MidWeek cartoon with Pepe!
Roy is available to make author appearances. Just print out the state ethics department approved flyer to share with your teachers or librarians. Roy wishes to see classrooms have more titles featuring Hawaii writers and illustrators. In fact, Cacy and Kiara and the Curse of the Ki'i was written for Keiki O Ka 'Aina in mind. Copies are available at Barnes and Noble, Other Realms, Target, and Amazon.com.
