Saturday, February 16th, 2013

Windwalkers is getting a face lift!  Check out the brand-new cover art below.  This should be available in the Kindle version already, and will be available in the paperback format within a few days of this post (February 16, 2013).

Who knows — maybe at some point the copies with the original cover art will be collector’s items…

Hokage and I are Featured on the JETWit Author’s Page!

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

Thanks to my friend in Japan, Miguel (yes, he lives in Japan, but as his name suggests, he’s French Canadian; no, I don’t get it, either) Gemma Vidal at JETWit has been kind enough to feature some of my work.  JETWit is a website featuring news and information about those of us who have been participants on the Japan Exchange Teacher Programme.  I was a JET from 2000 to 2003 and taught at a couple of junior high schools in my Japanese hometown of Fukaya, Saitama, just northwest of Tokyo.  And — just in case it isn’t clear — none of the tales of Hokage the Samurai would exist had I not had this amazing opportunity to explore the Land of the Rising Sun and its culture and history.

Have a look at the JETWit page here:

Thanks Gemma and JETWit!
