The book's been researched, thought about, composed, written, rewritten, beta-read, edited, copyedited, proofread. Covers have been designed, illustrations selected (something that's getting harder and harder as the 19th Century falls in love with photography and woodblock print artists are mostly producing publicity prints to encourage the export market), and the whole thing at last coming together and being released.
Now, Noriko's Journey, Book 5 in The Toki-Girl and the Sparrow-Boy series, is out and available everywhere.
Hard copies are available through Amazon and also through the Baker & Taylor Catalog for retailers, schools and libraries (ask your library to get it: they will), and e-books are available everywhere! Click this link and get to the retailer of your choice. One link to find them all!
