Harmless Like You is shortlisted for The Desmond Elliot Prize 2017 and see my paperback cover design in the banner. I have said this numerous times but I’ll say it again anyway, this book is AMAZING!! (Not just saying it because I designed the cover.)

I have designed a new cover for the paperback edition of Harmless Like You. I am really pleased with the outcome and the book is an amazing read. In the past 1960s narrative, a Japanese girl has an ambition to be an artist, in the present day narrative her son is dealing with his feelings from his mother’s abandonment. I love how each chapter beginning, beautifully describes a different colour of paint that sets a particular mood. You can read examples of this on my Quotes page.
Elle Canada has featured an interview with Rowan Hisayo Buchanan as the hot debut author for their fall round up. This coincides with the novel publishing in Canada in October, and Rowan’s tour of four Canadian festivals.
‘A stunning debut that would make a writer four times her years proud…moving.’
