07/27/2012 Fantastic Friday!

Greetings everyone! I hope your week was fun and entertaining. I got to see the new 'Batman' and all I will say is that it was a wonderful close to an epic trilogy. As for what next week brings, that is a mystery that I hope will all be good and awesome!

For now though I bring you 'Kitsune-Tsuki' by Laura V. Baugh. It follows the duties of an onmyouji (practitioner of the mystic arts) named Tsurugu no Kiyomori. He has been called upon to protect the warlord's new wife from a shape-shifting trickster. He works with Shishio Hitoshi to try and find the kitsune while investigating the warlord's grounds and the village surrounding the palace, wondering if the shape-shifter even exists.

You all know I'm a sucker for myths, and I couldn't pass up a story that dealt with the kitsune; a multi-tailed fox spirit known for shape-shifting and trickery. I hadn't done anything that delved into Japanese mythology yet either and decided there was no time like the present. The story takes place in feudal Japan, a time when samurai were prevalent and the belief in spiritual magic was at its highest. Tsurugu must find the kitsune before something happens to the warlord's new wife, but he must also determine whether or not the being actually exists or if there is a human element to the situation.

'Kitsune-Tsuki' is available on Smashwords for $0.99, and with it being almost 10,000 words that is definitely a deal you can't pass up. It will likely be available at other premium retailers soon, if it's not there already. Please check it out and tell your friends about it, I'm sure the author would appreciate it.

Thanks everyone for stopping by again this week. As a reminder, 'The Light Rises' is available for $1 until the 31st as part of the Smashwords Summer Sale, so please check it out and tell people about it. For now though I will go back to (somewhat) patiently waiting for word back regarding employment. I hope you all have a fun and productive weekend, I'll see you all back here on Monday!
