The Case of the Curious Formatting

It’s recently come to my attention that there was a formatting problem with my latest release, In Memory of Us, where certain characters ended up being shown as questions marks in the ebooks. I want to apologize to everyone who ended up with a faulty copy. This should not have happened.

Loose Id has since fixed the error and reuploaded the file to vendors. I hope that you can redownload the book wherever you’ve purchased and get an updated file that way.

Agan, I am so sorry.

(If you have received the book from me through a giveaway I will contact your personally.)

Out 3/31 from Loose Id

Kite’s had a crush on Shin since middle school, but never acted on it until the eve of his yearly trip to the States, when he slipped up and kissed his best friend. Shortly after, a tsunami wrecked the country and his hometown, and put all his plans on hold. Now, two years later, he’s back in Japan and he wants to set things right.

When he finds Shin, though, his former best friend isn’t who he used to be. Losing his parents changed Shin and now, instead of following his heart, he’s dedicated his life to studying for university entrance exams and ignoring everything else. He won’t let Kite get close, denying his obvious attraction and all their good memories.

Kite doesn’t want to give up on Shin, but he can’t shake the feeling that there’s something his friend isn’t telling him. Something else that happened two years ago on the day of the tsunami. He doesn’t know what it is, just that it’s destroying his friend—and possibly their shot at love.

Status Update

Spring is coming! And with it, my next release! In Memory of Us has gone to the proofreader and now all I have to do on that front is wait. (You can find a synopsis of that story in an interview I did over here)

Meanwhile, I have finished another story (52k, contemporary m/m, tentatively titled Lies and Loyalties) but I’m going to let that one lie for a month or so before giving it another read through and sending it out on submission.

To occupy my time until then, I’ve claimed a prompt in the Love is an Open Road writing event over at the m/m romance group on Goodreads. I’m going to be writing about a wolf shifter who finds his mate–only to find that his mate is asexual. I think I’m going to have a lot of fun with that. (And maybe I’ll finally manage to write a story that doesn’t suddenly turn DARK)

I’ll also be working on polishing up my first novel Taming the Dragon so I can publish that one sometime around May or June.  Lot’s of exciting stuff ahead!
