Takeshita Demons: Indonesian cover

Takeshita Demons is out in Indonesia, with a new cover! Check out that spooky yuki-onna Snow Woman top-left. *gulp*

What do you think? I’m pretty excited 🙂

In other news, Monster Matsuri is being sent to the printers this week.

Plus,  I’m four chapters in to a new and exciting book idea. No demons this time, just chickens, fences, a celebrity chef and a shovel.

Note to self: I’d be five chapters in to a new and exciting book idea if I wasn’t writing this post. GO BACK AND WRITE!

OK self.

Bye!
