6) A ‘cut-and-paste' from Patrick's newsletter … there's lots of great links in here:

  1. I published a couple of books last month, though you'd be forgiven for not noticing. There's the micro-niche At the Dentist's: 100 English phrases for dental assistants, hygienists and patientsblog post here, and a little more inclusive textbook for first year Japanese junior high school learners of English, details here. I'm doing nothing more marketing-wise than just the odd blog post or YouTube video until the books have had all the kinks worked out of them through classroom use, and until I have a complete series to offer teachers.
  2. You want access to 213,000 Japanese woodblock prints for free, dontcha? It's here.
  3. I'm going to attend my first ever literary hoo-hah, the 2017 Japan Writers Conference from October 8th and 9th in Ikebukuro. Looks a bit heavy on trad publishing for my tastes (more about pleasing the gatekeepers than readers), but I'm hoping to bag an interview with the odd writer (they are all odd, ed.) Come along and say hi if you are in Tokyo.
  4. This podcast episode of Criminal, recommended by newsletter Gold Star Deputy Mark Williams, was a fantastic interview with the cantankerous septuagenerian NYT reviewer of crime fiction.
  5. Bored with Haruki Murakami? Discover real Japanese sureality with this great Peter Tasker article on Yasutaka Tsutsui.
  6. Here's me blathening on about self-publishing on YouTube, using my dentist book as an example of a, er, hole to fill in the market.
  7. Here's last month's interviewee, Kaori Shoji, writing about a tearjerker of a film adaptation of a Keigo Higashino novel.
  8. I was chuffed with this reader's review of my first Hana Walker novel, Half Life.
  9. I didn't get my ducks in a row this month to do an interview with an author, but you might get as much as I did from reading this WaPo article about children's author and illustrator Sandra Boynton. Between her interview and this one in The Atlantic with Celeste Ng on the value of Goodnight Moon, I'm ready to write and illustrate my first picture story books for really little kids.
