Han Bei cgi draft

Started this a while ago.  I'm thinking Han Bei will look something like this for the next book.  What do you think?  Is this how you envisioned him based on the first book?

San An cgi draft

Found this pic when I was rummaging for sketch paper of my draft for San An.  Doesn't quite look like the final for the cover does it?

Trip to Blueberry Patch

Went to a pick-your-own blueberry patch with some folks.  Hot like crazy but quite the experience. About 1.5 lbs blueberries for less than $5.  Love the Midwest 😀

Also saw this dragonfly.

Malphas on Other Sales Channels

Hi all,

As mentioned in previous posts, I'm trying to branch out from Amazon Kindle.  Amazon is great in terms of the KDP program where I get paid per page read but not in terms of sales.  So far, a handful of people have read Polaris and Poetess Xuan but not Malphas.  I wonder if it's because of the cover, maybe I'll update it one of these days with a hot guy, that should do it!  :)

I figured I need to expand my distribution and since Malphas is not a popular book, it didn't seem like anyone would mind if I took it off the KDP Select program.  Which means, you'll have to shell out the $2.99!  So, I used Draft2Digital and now it's available in all the sales channels below (same price).  Please check it out if you're interested.

All sales channels for Malphas:

24 Symbols
Barnes & Noble 
Page Foundry

And of course (Amazon Kindle)

Ninja Shadow: Her One and only Love Otome

So... I've been playing the new otome on the app store: Ninja Shadow: Her One and only Love.  I have to say, it's much better than the other ninja otomes I've played so far.  The MC isn't the pretty perfect girl every guy is predisposed to love.  She kind of reminds me of my MC, Bao Lai, especially for the cross-dressing aspect, but toned down.  The male characters aren't too perfect either and they actually fall for the MC for reasons beyond her abilities to do house chores, unlike the predecessor game, Ninja Assassin.  Overall, the characters are more likable.

I've only finished Asagi's route so far.  He's a little similar to Aoi from Ninja Assassin but again, more likable.  Looking forward to reading all the other routes.

If you've played this otome, tell me what you think.

Update: Anyone else find it strange that Ed is considered unique and stands out for his foreign blonde hair and purple eyes when the MC is also blonde and has purple eyes but that's normal?  Hmmm.

From reading the four routes so far, I've concluded that I will like Makoto best (whenever his route comes out).  Just my type, haha!
