Sept. 9, 2021 -- The Spawn of Fashan: 40th Anniversary Edition was released on Amazon.com. In the USA, the paperback ranked #312 on its first Fantasy Gaming book sales list. It then went downhill, closing its first week at #1,080. But with its first day on Amazon Japan, the book hit #1 on both the Foreign Language Fantasy Gaming book sales and wish lists. After several days in the first or second position, the paperback ended its first week at #20 on the sales chart, #3 on that wish list, and #21 on the overall SF/fantasy book wish list! Spawn ended its second week at #50 on the Foreign Language Fantasy Gaming sales list, but remained in the top 10 on the Foreign Language Fantasy Gaming wish list, at #8. This second week marked when Amazon integrated corrective Day 2 tweaks to the published edition, which promises to turn all those first-week sales into collector items. Writer Kousaku Akano also started work that second week on a Japanese translation for those who purchase copies; that may account for another surge in sales, lifting Spawn to #4 on Amazon Japan's Foreign Language Fantasy Gaming sales list. .
Feb. 16, 2021 -- I just finished the first thorough edit of Lions of Judah, my sequel to The Prophet and the Dove. It took longer than I anticipated, at times stretching my patience. I expect a few more passes will follow, but hopefully these will proceed well. Perhaps it will debut around Easter…. or else I may jump to Book Four. Interesting, huh?
