hey man are you going to offer Karasu as a print book any time soon? If you would, I’d probably order it as well I prefer paper books over web books, and I like to support the artist!

I’m working on finding a literary agent for Karasu to get it published, so there are no plans to print/self-publish it for now. I’ll keep you guys updated on the process and thanks so much for your interest!

Karasu is a novel about yokai in feudal Japan. You can read it here.

Tezuka is one of my favorite creators and his Buddha series heavily inspired Karasu.

Hey what’s up with your books Jisuk?

jisuktoo:

You may (or may not) have noticed that I’m writing* two books at the same time. This is just about as hard as it sounds, haha. Before, I was only working on Karasu, then put Karasu on hiatus and only worked on Fishbones, then starting updating Karasu again while seemingly neglecting Fishbones. And you may have thought, man what the heck. So here is what’s going to happen!

Both Fishbones and Karasu are active and I will update either story when I am able to.

Because the two stories are so different, it’s kind of hard to quickly switch between the mindsets. I mean really one is an urban mafia friendship story and the other is about a talking bird in feudal Japan. Whichever one I feel like writing will be updated and I can’t promise any set schedule for either of them (currently I’m on a talking bird kick). Please understand and thanks for reading!

*attempting to, anyway
