Kyobo Books, Korean Bookstore

I’m finally getting around to posting a few pics from Korea.

So here’s the 1st one — Kyobo Books. I went to the main one in the basement of the Kyobo Building. This particular bookstore has over 2.3 million books.

Kyobo building — it’s a big building, though the one that’s even bigger (the bluish one) is owned by …

This Month’s Resolutions
  • Read more.
  • Write / revise more.
  • Exercise more.

Sleep is overrated.…

Happy June, Everyone!

The Last Slayer sequel revisionI must start this month’s note by saying I’m sorry for missing last month’s update. May was just too hectic. The Boy got bronchitis at the end of April, and with our trip to Korea and all, he had to basically stay out of daycare until May 18th, while we were planning our trip and getting our paperwork, etc. ready. …

Doesn’t this look like he’s playing poker?

April, April…

2012 seems to be the year of strange weather in Japan. We had the freakiest storm in April, plus snow up north, and so on. Thankfully where I am is relatively warm and not as stormy. Yesterday, I saw that the cherry blossom trees along the river had bloomed. Finally!

On the technology front, I changed my site layout, so …

A Quick Update

I have to apologize for the lack of updates for February and missing it again for March.

I’ve been super busy and exhausted from being ill for three full weeks and having to take care of a sick baby at the same time. Hero Material was down for the count as well. But we’re all fine now! :)

Unfortunately, I don’t …

The Boy Is Really a Terminator

The Boy cannot be bargained with. He cannot be reasoned with. And he absolutely will not stop crying, ever, until his mommy holds him and comforts him to his full satisfaction.

(Thankfully he doesn’t cry all the time. And there’s a special place in hell for the jerks who shot off fireworks outside at four o’clock in the afternoon!)…

The Second Half of 2011 Is Here!

I can’t believe it’s already July. It feels like January was just a day or two ago.

The first half of 2011 was pretty busy but productive. In January, I walked away from an offer on Carnal Secrets. I gave away Destiny Entwined to my newsletter subscribers on Valentine’s Day and published it the same day to anybody who …

The Boy: Details & Pictures

I’ve been away for about five days, plus a couple more to recuperate and to get used to having a new baby in the house. Many thanks to everyone who’s asked about my situation on Twitter, Facebook, etc. Here’s the story:

On Friday, June 17, I had a regularly scheduled doctor’s appointment. (This doctor will be referred to as Dr. …

Ah…The Boy

Not Coming Out

Today is my official due date, but it’s already 8:00 p.m. and the Boy shows no sign of coming out.

This comes after the preterm labor scare / talk on March 8, which totally freaked me out. The doctor prescribed some medicine to prevent contractions, put me on a modified bed rest until I hit at least Week 32, and …
