This Manga Rake of Mine

If you had told me, all those years ago when I started writing, that one day a book of mine would be redone as a comic book in Japan, I would have probably thought you were off your rocker. I kinda thought my agent was off a bit when she sent me the news. A comic book? Really? Of my characters?

Then the kid in me took over. OMG! I’m going to have a comic book!

So for all of you, here is the first sneak peak of Jack and Miranda from This Rake of Mine as manga characters:

I think it is so much fun–Jack looks so dashing. And for those of you who haven’t read This Rake of Mine, you might want to pick it up over the summer and get caught up. My September book, Mad About the Duke features Jack’s brother, that stickler for propriety, James Tremont, the Duke of Parkerton.

Maybe after James finds his true love, he might be open to a little manga adventure?

    OMG! This is sooo cool!

    As a kid I read all the classics in comic book versions. Even now when someone mentions one of those, from Dickens to Shakespeare, I see the artists images too.

    This Rake of Mine is my favorite of all your tales. I downloaded it on my Kindle, even though I have a hard copy of it. In fact, I am on my fourth or fifth reading of it. Of course, I will HAVE to have this version. πŸ˜€

    Can’t wait to see the Duke get his story!

    Congrats on this latest edition of This Rake of Mine.
