Hey, everyone. Sorry if you’ve already seen this, but my new book–the one I hinted about last July while we were in Tokyo–will be out in June as a full-length ebook (and, a little later, an audiobook).
It’s called _Pretty Good Number One: An American Family Eats Tokyo,_ and I’m currently raising money on Kickstarter to make it great:
[Click here to donate](http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1644995500/pretty-good-number-one-an-american-family-eats-tok), or to just watch the video and read the complete first chapter.
Six days in, I’ve already raised more than I hoped to raise in three weeks. So the book is happening, with professional copy editing, cover design, and a great website. However, it’s not too late to:
* Get your name in the acknowledgments, along with many other cool rewards
* Help fund a US book tour. Want me to come read in a city near you? You know what to do.
Sorry for the blatant commercialism. If you read this blog, I suspect you’re going to love the book, and dozens of you have already donated. Thank you so much for your support.
Congrats Matt! I can’t wait to read it.
just backed your project! read first chapter, wanted more. even though i already live in Tokyo :P looking forward to reading it!
Thanks, furochan. Tokyo is my favorite place in the world, period, and I hope you’ll feel like I portrayed it accurately in the book.
Blatant, Schmatant. Thanks for the opportunity. Love your writing, Matthew. Can’t wait to read the book!
