I am so overjoyed to be able to share my beautiful cover for AMERICAN PANDA! It’s everything I dreamed of and more! My cover reveal took place on Bustle, and they made this gorgeous gif with dancing graphics!


I love that the image represents Mei’s struggle with her identity, with the words American and Panda in different fonts and with doodles representing both sides of her (and I especially love the dumpling doodle!). But I also love that the color is bright and hopeful, which is what ultimately, the book is about.

You can check out the Bustle reveal and my interview here. I discuss my inspiration for the book, the own voices aspects of the story, and my change from dentist to writer!

The book is now available for preorder! Amazon | Barnes & Noble

If you do preorder the book, thank you, thank you, and hang on to your receipts because there will be prizes and giveaways to come, many involving pandas!

    GLORIA! Oh my goodness, I cannot tell you how EXCITED I was to see your post in my email.
    THE COVER IS GORGEOUS. The colours are lovely and I’m SO SO happy to see an Asian model on the cover. ❤ It means the world to me, and I'm sure it'll mean a lot to many others too. Congratulations!!

    (I can't boost it on Twitter yet because I don't have access to my account, but when I get it back tomorrow, I'm going to slam the RT button!)
