Dearest Gentle Reader,
Here’s special extra peek at the covers for the Japanese translation (not the manga) of the Parasol Protectorate series. They are so cute and little and charming. Some may even still be available (signed to buy) over in Tinker’s Pack.
Speaking of the Japanese covers…
It’s always fun to see an artist’s take on a scene from one of my books.

“Never use hard words unnecessarily; nor particular words or phrases too often; use as few parentheses as possible; it is a clumsy way of disposing of a sentence, and often embarrasses the reader.”
