Foxy Countdown

Some good questions have been cropping up across the threads. Rather than simply pass notes and whisper behind hands, let’s share my answers with the Whole Class. ::wink::

Will your books have 100-word chapters?
No! Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox (and the rest of the books in the Amaranthine Saga) will have nice, long, “proper” chapters. This is a novel of some substance, with more than 450 pages in the print edition. Or … to put things into more familiar fandom terms, Tsumiko’s story hit 96,000~ words.

Will Hisoka-sensei be a cat demon?
Not exactly. The good sensei is not a demon/youkai because I’ve introduced the Amaranthine people. As stated in the story summary: “They are our myths and legends come to life. Neither human nor animal, yet embracing qualities of both, the inhuman races inspire both awe and fear.” Even so, you’ll know your beloved sensei at a glance. Hisoka Twineshaft is a member of the cat clans, and he retains his pewter pelt and orange eyes. In fact, after many centuries teaching at the reaver academy, he’s affectionately referred to as Sensei by many of his former students.

Twenty More Days!

    • Not yet! But Miss Tsumiko at the printer, so I don’t think it’ll be much longer before the title starts showing up in virtual venues. We should have a book-spotting party when it does! ::twinkle::

  1. I really love that cover :sigh: Also on a scale of 1 to 10 (ten being Apocalyptic) how bad do you think folk would react if Hisoka-sensei DIDN’T appear? (for the record, until I went back to re-read parts of IY for other reasons I totally forgot Hisoka was NOT canon)

  2. I’m so excited for this! I can’t wait for the next one too and I haven’t even read the first one LOL But honestly you have no idea how long I’ve been waiting for this series. Also I’m so excited for Hisoka-sensei! Will he have a big role in the series? I know he most likely won’t be a main character unless you pull some twist on us oh ho ho! But for real, I’m gonna squee so much when I first read his appearance!

  3. Are the print editions and digital ones coming out rhe same day? I can’t wait to finally have one of you works on my bookshelf. Your work inspired me to get back into writing, and I’m currently hip deep in edits as I tighten everything up for my critique people(squee!)…and having an original story by you to read inbetween chapter edits would be awesome! 😍
