4 days until #Confluence premieres-- and I couldn't have made it this far without the support of my patrons.
I'm already working on the 2nd volume in the series as well as the first volume of a different series called #HomewardStars. I've also got two podcasts and all manner of other things afoot.
Again, all this is made possible by my readers and listeners like you, at http://patreon.com/riversidewings
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Reminder to anyone who supports the NYT staff's labor action: unless a miracle happens and we get a contract deal by midnight, we will be walking out for one day tomorrow, Dec. 8.
We'll be asking supportive readers to abstain from visiting/using NYT offerings for the day, midnight to midnight. That means articles. That means multimedia. That means... Wordle.
I know. That one pains me too. But maybe the word will be like LYMPH and we'll all be lucky to miss it.
oh, since I mentioned it earlier, my goal for Path of the Straw-Thief is-- as I did with Confluence-- to make it at least a little longer than its preceding novel. The story itself will likely be about as long, but the other material in the book will be longer: more art, another historical essay, and so on.
So, on this, 7 December 2022, I can say:
Wordcount on Path of the Straw-Thief: 10,000/65,000 written
Today on Okazu - line, by Yua Kotegawa
A mystery manga from 2006 about suicide and circumstances that can bring people together.
Wielder and blade: one heart together.

I've been hearing from some, readers and those who have read a bit *about* my book, that cyberpunk is the last thing they'd have associated with Japan's Tohoku region.
And that note of surprise is EXACTLY why I wrote this book and set an entire series in motion set there.

If I want to be a hacker or an activist or passing or clocky or #queer AF or stealth or valley girl or punk or delicate or emo, or if I want to invoke the goddess #Inanna and reinvent myself as a glorious #trans priestess, I fucking will, and every one of them will be me.
