ART: Eloquence Starmark

Born the same year as the Emergence, Ever Starmark was the most famous hybrid on the planet. His mother, Dad’s second bondmate, was human, and Ever’s very existence was considered proof that peace wasn’t just possible, it offered new possibilities for the human and inhuman races.

Eloquence slouched into Rise and smiled at Ever’s shifting expression. He knew every quirk and dip of those auburn ears, the swirl of emotion through shining eyes, and the eager thump of his stubby tail. If Quen was completely honest, Ever was the main reason he’d dragged his feet about enrollment. He couldn’t exactly bring a three-year-old to class.

How was he supposed to explain high school to Ever?

Kimiko and the Accidental Proposal (Amaranthine Saga, #2)

• • •

Runt. Kimiko and the Accidental Proposal opens by introducing readers to Eloquence Starmark, who holds a unique place within his clan. For reasons, he never expected to have a bondmate, but he was (mostly) content and entirely grateful for the den he shares with a bachelor uncle, a baby brother, and whoever else may be looking for a cozy place to bed down. No matter what, Quen has Ever, and Ever has Quen. Continue reading

ART: Kimiko Miyabe

Grandpa’s Girl. Before FoxOfTwilight even finished Kimiko and the Accidental Proposal, she was ready to draw Kimi for us. Miss Miyabe is an interesting young lady who lives on the fringes of the In-between because her family serve the Kikusawa community as shrinekeepers. Kimi’s path is set, and her options are few, but she finds little ways to add excitement to her days.

A convenience store caught her eye, and she pulled up short. “Say, do you mind if I make a quick stop?”

“Snacks!” was Akira’s stamp of approval.

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.

Attention to Detail

Permission to Peek. We’re busily adding flourishes to Kimiko’s story, those little details that make the print editions so, so pretty. Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox is strewn with flower petals, but Kimiko and the Accidental Proposal is a different story. Take a look at a few of the designs for scene break dividers.

Details, Kimiko

Print editions will start showing up in online bookstores in the next couple weeks, and I’ll begin taking pre-orders for author-signed copies on Monday, October 1. At the moment, you can only pre-order the digital edition on Amazon. But it’ll be available everywhere soon.

Thank you for your patience and for your impatience. Each is a compliment in its own way. ::twinkle::
