Book Cover Surprise

Today is Sunday, and as always, most of Sunday mornings, you’ll find me at my desk.  So, today, I’m deep in the mind of Koji from Seiryu Spirit, and sudden inspiration strikes in the form of a book cover.

I get excited every time my favorite person designs a cover and it matches the story.  So, I have this story we call Hitokiri (The Assassin).  I finished it sometime last year, and I’ve just been sitting on it, not really editing it.  Though I love those characters dearly.  L, who makes most of my covers attacked this morning with the cover for Hitokiri, and now, I feel I need to edit it, turn it into an ebook and that’s just a lot more work, but okay.  I’m for it.


I’ve decided to attack you too with Hitokiri’s cover and hopefully the next little e-book I make. Okay, it’s a definite, I’ve been asked to stop saying hopefully and be definite, so here is the definite next e-book coming your way.

The Assassin

May you have an amazing Sunday!


Always You – Shorts by Sui

Happy February!

It’s good to celebrate small milestones! This year, I’m determined to give my writing the attention it deserves, no matter what! And so far, I’ve managed to upload three short stories onto smashwords.  They are oldies, (meaning, they were written before) but they never had e-books before.  I couldn’t seem to find the time before to upload them.  Now, I’m glad that this is done.

Always You2This last short – Always You, Only You, is a story that came to be because of a close friend.  I struggled with the ending, yep, this happens at times.  There are those endings that just won’t come easily.  However, no matter how much I read through it, these two characters, Miki and Shin, just won’t have it any other way.  Oh well, enjoy this little departure from my usual endings.

February comes with new goals.  I hope to write a new story for valentine’s day this year.  I’m in the mood for romance, and I hope you are too!

On a side note, here is a pride of lions to make you smile.  Family runs strong here.  10376279_786371224756058_8538788702431511340_nHehehe, went on a safari adventure and ran into these guys! Whoa! Exciting and exhilarating! They truly bring life into perspective.

Have a fabulous weekend,



Shorts by Sui – The Unexpected Gift

Mid-January! The year is fifteen days old.  I hope you have done at least one exciting thing.  You just need the one to get started, then the second one comes easier.

unexpectedFrom my desk, here is another short story e-book to read called The Unexpected Gift of Love- Anthology.  Two stories in one. The Unexpected Gift of Love came to be because of a prompt response from  I post some of my work-in-progress stories on this site and it has become an invaluable writing resource over the years.  Check it out sometime.

Back to the story, Ren Hill faces a personal betrayal that breaks his family in half.  He must find a way to move ahead and protect his teenage twins from heartbreak.  Ryan, who has always liked Ren, has the hard job of convincing Ren to give him a chance.

The Unexpected Gift of Love was a look at divorce and the impact it can have.  I think that commitment is such an important aspect in relationships, it requires effort, and sometimes that effort just fails. What a disappointment that turns into!  Do check out this little story.

You’ll find a shorter bonus story in this e-book called Monday Evenings, Thursday Dinner and Sunday Afternoon.  The cutest, funnest story, I love it.  It makes me smile, I hope it does you.  Do you ever have days when, after you fight with your friend, your boyfriend, your partner…family, you spend your time thinking the worst of the situation?  You walk around continuing the fight in your head, it escalates to great levels and when you meet the person you were fighting with later, your anger sort of dissipates.  And you wonder, why were you so pissed?  Well, this story is about that kind of situation.  Reed and Kristos have a fight and….go read it!

Alright, I hope your January is going well, that it’s fantastic, and only good things are coming to you.

Story Shorts – Little Stories that Make you Smile

Happy New Year!

I hope the year has started with good vibes for you.  I’m also sending you good vibes, right now.  2018 is here, 2 years to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Strange thing to remember, but I’m actually looking forward to that.

January should be celebrated.  There are so many fresh new starts.  You can do anything in January.  For me, I’m greeting you with a Short Story, neatly compiled into an e-book for your enjoyment.  I hope you enjoy it!

The title of this short story is ‘Do You Know?‘.  This is a story about Saki Masashi, a Tokyo University art student, in his final year.  His powerful older brother suddenly pulls him out of Tokyo Uni., and sends him to the U.S. to enroll into Alexander University.  Saki has had to deal with his older brother treating him this way all his life.  In response to his brother’s cold shoulder attitude, Saki decides to fill his life with warm, memorable moments.

I loved writing this story because it was about seeking out those moments in life that make you happy.  Smiles can come from things, (nothing feels right unless I have coffee from my favorite chipped mug) activities, (I garden to find my smiles when they disappear), and people.  I’m sure there are those people who fill you up with warmth, just by them calling you or sending you a message to ask about soy sauce. (Hehehe)

Look out for more of these short stories this month.
