Amaranthine Saga 02, Kimiko and the Accidental Proposal by FORTHRIGHT

She wasn’t aware of her gift’s significance, yet he expects to be courted.

Kimiko enrolls at the In-between’s prestigious new high school, which is designed to promote the integration of the human and inhuman races. As a reaver, she’s supposed to act as peacemaker, bridging a formidable cultural gap, but the other two members of her triad don’t need any help in that department. Akira and Suuzu have been friends since middle school. Instead, the boys must rally behind Kimiko when she inadvertently initiates a courtship with Eloquence Starmark.

If you’ve already begun reading, hold onto your comments and put them on the Squee Post. (I want this thread to remain spoiler free.)

If you’ve received your print edition, snap a photo because I’ll be hosting another Photo Challenge! Interested in SIGNED COPIES >>

2 of 7

If you haven’t run across this tidbit of information, let me restate it here. The Amaranthine Saga is slated to have seven books. (I planned that much—and named all the mikos—before I began writing the first book.)

Amaranthine Saga 1 and 2

I won’t mess with half books, so the main series won’t have a volume 0.5 or 3.5, but I’ll play around a little with my free “fanfic,” Lord Mettlebright’s Man, which may just plod along in the background of the whole series. The collection I’m calling Songs of the Amaranthine will contain stand-alone short stories that predate the Emergence.

Here we go again!

We knew it might happen. Having pre-ordered the print edition of Kimiko and the Accidental Proposal from Amazon myself, I know many of you just received a helpful update, letting you know that the book now has an anticipated delivery date of mid-December. This is out of my control.

Several Possible Options:

  • Hang tight, because you’re committed to “certified buyer” status!
  • Order the digital edition, so you can indulge in release day reading!
  • Bravely request a twinkly signed copy from the author!
  • Ask your local library to order a copy, because it’ll get it faster.
  • Any combination of the above.

Ordering books from me just became really real, because THIS was in my inbox this morning:

UPS Notification

Book Boxes. My authorial order from the printer (who is apparently quite busy at this time of year) is on its way and will arrive TOMORROW. My assembly line is ready to roll, and signed books will be bundled off to the post office Thursday morning.  Shipments in the US have been taking about a week, so expect your books by Thursday, October 25.

Having anticipated a recurrence of last spring’s debacle, I ordered plenty of books. Come one, come all. ::twinkle:: Details on how to request signed copies from me can be found under the SIGNED BOOKS tab >>

Book pictures tomorrow!
