Chapter 10:

Note from the writer

Hachiko - A Hachishakusama Story

Hi. Just wanted to take a little time and say hello. I posted a tentative cover for my book. I hired someone to actually do this and I liked it so much that I wanted to make it the cover. But for some reason I guess he got cold feet and said maybe I should find someone else. Not sure why he didn't finish, there's not much more to do. I might attempt to try and do this myself or just hire someone to rework it a little.Bookmark here

I want to thank everyone for taking the time to read my story. Kind of crazy how I never planned to write a light novel but then that pandemic broke out and I was stuck at home for a few weeks. My manga projects stalled because I lost my mangaka. My game was on hold because I was taking care of my mother before that. So what else was there to do when you're a creative and your mind is going a hundred miles an hour. You write a book I guess.Bookmark here

This is actually my second time writing the book because the first time the book was in third person present tense. One of my beta readers said they didn't like the narrator, but others did. I mentioned that to some of my other beta readers and someone said why don't I change it to first person. Which is what led me to change it into a first person past tense book where he's telling the story of meeting Hachikushasama. That was not an easy thing to do. I was very close to the end of the book and then I went back and rewrote everything.Bookmark here

I do have a few more chapters edited but life got busy. Much busier than I was expecting. I am planning to release two or three more chapters here but I will be launching a Kickstarter at some point in the next month or two. It's my debut book and it's just about ready. So if you decide you would want this book in your hand then just keep watching and I will let you know when it's time. Right now I'm trying to plan out what the page would look like and possibly a 3D figure of Hachiko. Plus of course writing the final chapters. I have three or four different endings I may use and I'm deciding how to end the book.Bookmark here

On that note I will probably release the next chapter next week.Bookmark here
