Japanese fans

I'm back and just checking in. Had a good visit with the folks but couldn't find any time to sneak off to write, which was frustrating. So, I'm working at it now. Betaed Capella's latest Thursday night and you folks are in for a real treat when she gets up to chapter 8 and that's all I'm saying right now.

Just got a note from my lovely Japanese friend Iroha. She is translating my fic "Swords & Seduction" into Japanese and putting it on her website. She is up to chapter 7 (out of 13) now and reports that her site had over 3,000 hits since she started and half of them are repeat customers. Since the Swords translation is the only thing on the site right now, I guess that means the fic has some Japanese fans. A well known Japanese slash artist named Piyo even did some pics for it. This is all just so cool I can't stand it. Here is Iroha's site called Colour of Leaves if anyone wants to check it out. http://colourofleaves.ifdef.jp/col_1_TOP/coltop.html
Thanks Iroha, my dear. You're wonderful!
Okay, going back to wrestling with this next chapter of Time Enough for Love. Cheers, amigas/amigos
