Introducing my new side audio blog type project, Anma’s Manga Minute, and giving a more “formal” introduction to my Hakodate Hearts book series, including selected readings from both Aisuru and Deviations.
Fair warning: as this episode includes a reading from Deviations, it has a bit more cussing than usual 🙂
News & Notes:
- Computer woes – desktop video card died and laptop had to have Windows reinstall
- Girl in the Forest updates: feedback in, revision progress and cover progress
Anma’s Manga Minute
- New “vlog”/blog thing about Anime and Manga!
- YouTube and blog only for now
- Check out the intro episode!
Giving a better introduction to Hakodate Hearts, now that it’s officially named and all that. Hakodate Hearts is my genre-crossing series of interconnected stories about people on the edge of giving up who find hope and renewal in unexpected meetings, friendships, and love.
- Shared world centered around Hakodate, Japan
- Standalone novels with little Easter eggs between the stories
- Aisuru – first
- Deviations – second, set roughly 4 years after Aisuru; connections include Taka being Sakura’s neighbor plus side character appears in both
- Girl in the Forest – third, set roughly 4 years after Deviations; Adachi is a former classmate of the trio from Deviations and one or two side characters might appear 🙂
What It Isn’t
- An ongoing storyline or a series with an “over arching”
- Full of cliffhanger books
- A Serial or Season type story
I finish up the introduction with a bit about Aisuru and Deviations, readings from both, and giving a quick intro to the upcoming third book, Girl in the Forest.
