While finishing Book 2/prepping Book 3, we figured all the stuff with Sachi and Kado after, ahem, SPOILER would be hard to get across without giving them more control over the narrative. Save Me/Don’t Save Me is an extra short story after the Epilogue of Book 2, and it splits the perspective between Sachi and Kado to give more insight into what they’ve been going through. It also, AHEM, shows some other stuff in detail. It’s dark, but we don’t think dark enough for a Trigger Warning. Since it’s 18+, we sell it as a download. You can read Book 3 without it, if you can’t afford this/don’t like reading mature stuff.
For the rest of you folks, enjoy.
It’s up and there’s no paywall. Enjoy.
The official ebook will be coming out in about a month–that will include the revised version of the chapters along with bonus material: Adam’s short story and a brand-new story about Nick and Hatsumi. Paperback is right after that. All the pending materials from the Book 2 Kickstarter–the Book 1 Audio Book (which is finally ending next month, after last month’s chapter, which I never linked to here, oops!), two short stories, and the card game–will be rolling out in the next few months. And Book 3, of course, will begin shortly after. Our rough start date is September, once everything above is squared away.
Thank you for reading!
Damn, it’s been a busy month for us. Let’s get right to it:
1.) New chapter (Chapter 8, Part 1) is now up at Sparkler Monthly. There’s still the Sparkler Subscriber/TD Book 2 Subscriber paywall over it, but that vanishes on Friday.
2.) New installment of the audio book–Book 1: Chapter 8, Part 3–is also up, and the paywall’s already down, so everyone can stream it for free. This is when Jo finds out about Seiya.
3.) We’ve re-released our two earlier smut stories in Sparkler Monthly’s new Cherry Bomb line, now with some sexy art from rem. <3 There’s Building Up, the Ayase x Kiyoshi story, and a combo pack of Once & Never Again, the two interconnected side stories about Sachi x Kado (see pic above). Once was originally only available in the Book 1 ebook and paperback, but we figured if you’re willing to pay a few bucks to shed light on these two boys, you deserve the whole story. (Well…the whole story that’s been written so far, anyway. :D) These re-released stories are also included in the Cherry Bomb Collection #1.
We’re almost done with Book 2 AND the Book 1 audio book! Can you believe how long it’s been? The first chapters of Tokyo Demons launched in May of 2011, so we’re coming up on our 3-year anniversary…and the 12th anniversary of when we actually started developing it (back in 2002). Time fliiiiies.
The massive next section of Book 2–Chapter 7, Part 2–is now free to read on Sparkler Monthly. This section includes the Ayase + Kado scene from the magazine’s February cover, as well as the illustration above, which is cropped to spare you a GIANT SPOILER. This extra long chapter has reveals, screaming, kissing, fighting, and…cosplay. Always cosplay.
Despite the fact that this shit gets dark, guys.
Tokyo Demons is on the cover of Sparkler Monthly this month, with rem’s ridiculously squee/sad illustration of Ayase and Kado from the upcoming chapter (which will be released in a few weeks). Book 2 ends in a few months, and Chapter 7, Part 2 is the climax of the novel, so it’s a good time for rem to rock that cover.
More details on the illustration here. See you in a few weeks!
