I've thought about it, but I don't know. I'd love to do like a stylized collection of short stories and vignettes, with Yuuta following Kazuo deeper and deeper into his kinky, eccentric corner of the underworld. But I'm afraid if I stayed in the Aniki's Garden universe I'd end up fetishizing Japan in ways I'm not comfortable with.

SAYS THE WOMAN WHO WROTE YAKUZA TENTACLE PORN, I KNOW

I do love that retro Japanese fetish/yakuza-movie aesthetic. TONS. If I could figure out a way to play around with that responsibly, I'd be on it immediately. I lived in Tokyo for a few years and would love to write some freaky underworld stories in that vein, but I also don't want to be another white loudmouth feeding stereotypes about Japan. Aniki's Garden definitely felt edgy for me in that respect.

I'm thrilled you liked it enough to ask for more, though! :) (less)

I'm so glad you're loving Merrick and hope you'll like the sequel just as much!

P.S. The cover will be revealed next week! I'm absolutely in love with it. (less)

Claire Cray and 1 other person liked Adara's review of Ezekiah:
Ezekiah by Lisa Henry
"An interesting take on how the Α/Ω dynamics of wolves can (but don't necessarily have to) conflict with human desires, and how they can flow into a D/s relationship.

In this particular universe, omega shifters are rare, and instead of being treasur..." Read more of this review »
A Beautiful Mess Photo Idea Book by Elsie Larson
"I'm not the target market for this book, I don't read the blog, and I can see I have some pretty clear ideological differences with the authors. It's no big surprise I didn't like the book.

A Gentleman's Position by K.J. Charles
“Such an easy thing, to be liked. All you had to do was make sure people didn’t know you.”

Claire Cray and 5 other people liked Vivian's status update
Vivian
Vivian is on page 32 of 160 of Bushido: In the days when decapitation was public, not only were small boys sent to witness the ghastly scene, but they were made to visit alone the place in the darkness of night and there to leave a mark of their visit on the trunkless head.

--Referring to the training of samurai sons.

“Been a pleasure, Don Gato. Have a sexy evening.”
The cat looked dryly at him before hopping down to the floor and sauntering out of the house.
Ken’s face showed genuine surprise as the cat left. He looked curiously at Jin.
Guessing that Ken was wondering if he’d just used his telepathy on the cat, Jin beamed. “Oh, yeah,” he lied. “Not just human minds I’m the master of. I get cows to dance in musicals.”

“How could I have disliked a man with a library like that?”
Claire Cray, Merrick

“I was the wind in the trees.”
Claire Cray, Merrick

“Class supremacy can rest only on class degradation”
Jack London, The People of the Abyss

“And yet the quality of the life is good. All human potentialities are in it. Given proper conditions, it could live through the centuries, and great men, heroes and masters, spring from it and make the world better by having lived.”
Jack London, The People of the Abyss

“Also, as I looked at the mite of a youth with the heart of a lion, I thought, this is the type that on occasion rears barricades and shows the world that men have not forgotten how to die.”
Jack London, The People of the Abyss

“The forest smelled like new growth and ancient death.”
M. Caspian, Kraken

“Oh, grandma would be so disappointed. She loved this bench. She picked it out in the 70s. She always said she was so amazed you could get Formica with yellow daisies.”
M. Caspian, Kraken
