Head Over Heels Japanese Manga News

Monday, November 10th, 2014

A nice surprise in the mail today! The Japanese publisher of HEAD OVER HEELS has now released the book in a multi-author volume that I think (given my extremely limited Japanese) contains 6 stories in total. At least the numeral 6 shows on the cover, so that’s my best guess. So I received a couple of author copies.

The book was previously released by Ohzora Shuppan as an individual paperback and then in ebook manga editions. Now, the multi-book edition.

This was totally unexpected (as was the royalty cheque that arrived in the mail the other day), so what a fun surprise.

HEAD OVER HEELS appears to be the second book in the volume, if you count from the “back” cover. Shown below are the final pages of my story within the volume, which is on the right. The volume is read “back to front” (to Westerners).

In case you’re interested, here is the single volume edition, which was originally published in 2011 and is still available from Amazon Japan:

You know, I needed a lift-me-up, and this did it!

Sweet Abduction…I Think

Friday, May 18th, 2012

A visitor to my Facebook page told me that the Greek title of BORROWING ALEX loosely translates to something like “Sweet Abduction.” I have an email in to the publisher to verify the translation (somehow it never occurred to me that the book would have a different title, but foreign publishers change the titles all the time, so it makes sense), but if you can verify the title for me, leave a comment on this post or drop me an email.

Here’s the cover, now available on newsstands in Greece from Anubis. “Sweet Abduction” (which makes me think of sit-ups) is part of the Anubis Romance line. There’s also an ebook version available from the publisher (should you know how to read Greek and want to buy it).

For interest’s sake, here’s the back cover, too:

I don’t think that can be read well enough to translate, but if you want to try, be my guest!
