Oh, there is one thing... but this might not make a difference to you guys. I was so caught up in formatting and everything else that I somehow missed a major typo in the Japanese title for "Bring Me To Life". I must have been tired and blurry eyed when I typed it and I just never noticed it, and I'm actually kind of humiliated here... I just can't believe I made this mistake. I was so proud of the print job and then my eyes found the typo ON THE COVER and my stomach churned so much I thought I would puke.
Normally I wait until events are over to offer my books to overseas readers, but... I want to get rid of these! So if you were thinking about getting a copy, the book is about the size of a magazine (B5 size) and the cover and back cover (with a bonus cutesy illustration I won't be posting in my gallery) look fantastic. If you don't read Japanese, you won't even notice this typo. The book looks and feels great except that I punched in the wrong kanji on the cover, and I don't want my Japanese readers to see that because they will assume the inside is jumbled as well.
If you buy a book, I will throw in two free postcards of your choice (that way I won't have to adjust shipping). I would REALLY appreciate it.
The book if 40 pages of the Japanese version plus a thank you section and full-color front and back art. The paper is great! I'm definitely going to keep using this print company.
The book is $6 + $3 shipping and handling for anywhere in the world. You'll also get two free postcards! Plus, anyone who buys copies of the individual chapters in Japanese will get free swag if they order the first English volume as a thank you for your support. Any support would be great, since I don't get paid to post pages of FaLLEN online (starving artist, woo!).
If you would like a copy, send me a note and I'll send you my paypal address, or you can leave a comment and I will note you.
I'd really appreciate all the support I can get! I'm pretty proud of these books, and even with the typo they still look great.
The website delays have also been partially because of the printing and me uploading some new stuff to the site. Hopefully I'll get that all going tonight!

👈 This will be on sale this weekend at 500 yen a pop. I'm really really nervous because I sent it off to a printer I've never used and I won't see the final product until this weekend at the event. I went through and cleaned up the pages and realized when I changed them to bitmap some of the tone came out quite a bit lighter than I was expecting. If the printer is really top-notch I think it'll be okay, but my pages look a bit lighter than I'm used to seeing them. If the prints are pretty good I'll offer them for sale on here, too. I made fifty copies, so they better look good... eek.
I hope you all have been enjoying FaLLEN! I'm enjoying drawing it, and I'm really looking forward to the next few chapters where I'll get to have a little more fun with characters interacting. No monsters until 4, though
