Books and Boba


Out cover. Yeah so this is the first book of a series and this is one of the questions that my my girlfriend asked me to confirm his second book. It is holiday. Yeah it was picked up in a two book contract. And yeah there i actually. I have finished the second book. It's with my editor right now. I'm going to start on revisions here soon. But yeah there will be more more zinni. Did you write both at the same time. You right the right one. I start on the second. I wrote when i and i actually sold tokyo after like on a parcel so it wasn't even a full manuscript. Who is like ten chapters of the book and then it was bought. And i was like terrified because i was like. Oh my god actually write it. So that was slightly terrifying. So it's all they took you ever after sold like two years ago. A lot of people are always surprised when you sell a bucket doesn't automatically publish it takes yard to in production everything And then so right. After i finished writing took you over. After i a- i started the second book and i turned it actually the day before took over after published. I i kinda got it by my teeth. Yeah so. I like my question. Is you mentioned like going to japan after The pandemic kind of settles down on. What is something that you want to do in japan. like what. What are your dream activities. Yeah i mean. I guess the question is like what is something. I don't wanna do when. I want to visit all of the imperial sites that i wrote about as close as i can get to them which might actually get kicked out of japan if they're trying to get too close but I i wanna see everything what feels the most important and the most emotional is that we recently found out that there was some land inherited By my dad and his siblings that was passed down According to heritage laws in japan from his great grandmother that's in fukushima and so were going to go try to see if we can find that land. I'm hoping i'm hoping to kind of be contact. Historian or register. See if we can. We can kind of out that information but that seems so finding also a little bit like a treasure hunt which is always exciting to that sounds amazing. I haven't done any hair travel but it sounds great that you'll have like some purpose in your visit to the distance. All the fun stuff. You'll do fun stuff there. So there's so much i mean. Yeah i'm i'm just right now like narrowing down itinerary in how long we wanna see in tokyo and then where else we want to visit. What were there and just trying to figure out you know where. It's not only my dad in either going. It's my to may three siblings. So we're gonna we're gonna go and heavy well.
