Wow. Until someone linked me, I wasn’t aware that Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox made it onto Amazon Editors’ Picks for the Top 20 Best SciFi/Fantasy Books of 2018. Continue reading
You have the rest of today to take part in the Blurb-My-Book Challenge for Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox. Several have already taken part. You can be next!
You’re making me blush. You can still take part in the Blurb-My-Book Challenge, which will put your accolades on the cover of Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox. (I’ll email it to you, to cherish or to share.) Here are three more participants… what would you say?
Say Something Nice. There’s still time to take part in the Blurb-My-Book Challenge, which is really just for fun. I’m not looking for Serious Business endorsements. It’s more of a chance for you to embrace your inner critic & promote your own books or blogs. Dan and Lexie have already played along…
Let’s do something fun. All this week, leading up to the release of Kimiko and the Accidental Proposal on Monday, October 22, I’m running what may be the silliest challenge ever. You know what a book blurb is, right? It’s a line or two of praise that appears on a book cover, usually by someone with a claim to fame. I’m inviting you to blurb Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox.
What I need from you:
- Say your piece. What did you think? How did you feel? Why are you giving your seal of approval? Be punchy! Be pithy! Be you!
- Choose wisely. What name/penname/pseudonym do you want to use? Because you’re going to show off this book cover, right?
- Byline, please! Promote your fandom fic, your comic, your book, your blog. Or choose your claim to fame, your quirk, your reason for reading. Be bold! Be brash! Be you!
Comment below or email me (I’m at always[dot]forthright[at]gmail[dot]com), and I’ll create a book cover emblazoned with your blurb! Just for fun, but also for sharing. Because a little buzz is good right before a book releases. ::twinkle::
Deadline for participation: Monday, October 22, 2018 (release day for Kimiko and the Accidental Proposal)
As always… Be nice! Play fair! Have fun!
Guess who’s on sale? Today only, you can nab a copy of Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox for $2.49 in the US Amazon store. If you already have a copy, recommend it to someone who needs a foxy read this weekend! ::twinkle::
**If you’ve got it, did you review it? I’d be glad for your support. ::glomp::
“No need to stand … or stand on formalities.” He strode forward and crouched beside her, offering a hand. “I’m Gingko.”
Tsumiko’s eyes widened, for her gardener had claws.
He sighed. “Nobody told you about me?”
Gingko pushed back his hat. He was younger than she expected—about her own age, perhaps a little older. While he had the famed beauty of the inhuman races, his pupils were round. Which only confused Tsumiko further, because it made Gingko seem more human.

I don’t like spoilers, nor do I like to spoil surprises. That’s probably why I’ve been sitting on Gingko art for so long. His return to Stately House may be forecast early on, but Tsumiko certainly didn’t see him coming. With Book 2 releasing in less than a month, I’m bringing out FoxOfTwilight’s rendition of the estate’s gardener. Continue reading
Did you know you can get Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox on the bookshelf at your public library? Most city and county library websites include a place where you can request they add a book that’s not currently in their system. (Which means they’ll buy the book.) So far, two of you have mentioned to me that Tsumiko is now in their local library. Thanks for that! ::twinkle::
This is amazing to me! I have a library book! ::confetti toss::
Good News! A book box just arrived, and none too soon. I was down to one lonely, unclaimed copy of Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox. Now, I have a baker’s dozen, which are ready for readers who’d like an author-signed copy.
I love it when readers send me creative book photos! Here’s one of the snapshots I received for our Photo Challenge. Thank you, Honey!
