Bright Eyes Complete!

I’ve written nearly sixty-eight thousand words of Bright Eyes, the sequel to Risuko.

The most satisfying word of all to write?

That’s the kanji character for “The End.”


After all this time, I have a complete draft of the second Seasons of the Sword book — and I’m really excited about being able to finally share more than snippets with you!

I’m working hard at editing — and if you’ve signed up for Risuko’s Beta Army, you’ll be hearing from me soon. And we’ve set a release date: May 5, 2022. (That’s Japanese Children’s Day, for what it’s worth.)

(Oh, and in case you’re wondering what I happened to the character who refused to die… I killed them off. Gleefully. And I’d do it again!)
