Clumsy 098: Room for Improvement

Disclaimer: I do hereby disclaim all rights and responsibilities for the characters in this topsy turvy tale… especially for the touchable one. A nod of recognition is bent towards Rumiko Takahashi for her creative prowess.

Impeccable Beginnings


IY – Youkai Shitsuji by j-lianne

A show of hands! How many of you have reread Impeccable in advance of the release of Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox? (It’s certainly not required. I’m just curious.) While it’s true that I borrowed some elements from Impeccable when I framed the first book in the Amaranthine Saga, the cast are no longer loaners from Rumiko Takahashi. I know you’ll spot parallels (because I intentionally translated certain elements into the Amaranthine universe), but I hope you’ll be able to see these characters for themselves.  (Most of all, I hope you’ll enjoy the story. That would please me greatly.)

For fun, let’s look at the first chapter of Impeccable, a fanfic I began back in 2009. It’s an AU (alternate universe) adventure I started after a fandom friend made a remark about raunchy slave!fics. ::twinkle:: Continue reading

Mood Stripes Prompts

Lately, I’m all, “blah, blah, blah, buy my book, blah, blah!” And you’re all humoring me like troopers and helping me celebrate like the awesome friends you are. But I get tired of hearing myself saying nothing but, “blah, blah, blah, buy my book, blah, blah!” So let’s do something fun and silly and FREE!

It’s time to collect prompts for a new fanfic! Continue reading

How big is the book?

One question that’s coming up often enough to qualify as a FAQ is a matter of size. “How long will Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox be?” And on a related note, are the chapters drabble-length? (Hey, I do have a reputation in that department.)

And let’s face it… I posted pictures of physical copies, but they don’t offer much scale. For all you know, they could be itty-bitty … and hardly worth the price tag. Now, if you read the fine print on most book sale venues, they’ll give dimensions (some sites even list the weight), but that’s never stopped anyone from margin-abuse. ::nods wisely::

So! I have prepared a simple fandom-friendly framework to give you a better sense of size. (Photos included!) Wanna reassure yourself? Continue reading

Book Box!

Yesterday was one of those sit-on-your-hands, distract-self-with-manga kind of days. Because focus is non-existent when you have one eye on the clock and an ear tuned to the distant rumble of delivery trucks in the neighborhood. Because a box from the printer was due… with pre-release copies of Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox.

The book box FINALLY arrived, but not until after dark. So I waited for daylight to take pictures. Wanna see? Continue reading

Sale Price!!!

I know I’m spamming your inboxes this morning, but you guys must be pre-ordering like crazy because Amazon has actually put Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox on sale! The nice thing about pre-ordering is that you always get the lowest price. So the upshot of all your purchases is … you’re all getting a price break! Nicely done, squee-buddies!

As of this morning, the book that retails at $16.99 can be had for $14.18. Good job!
