Drama CD: Break Free!

I’ve been posting about this in various places, but I thought I’d add a post to this blog as well. Better late than never, eh?

So, this is going to be a shameless advertisement for a fellow author, who I admire greatly, and whose work has always been more than inspiring to me. Nowadays, I am lucky enough to call her my friend, and I am super excited about her having this project happening!

Basically she wrote a novel-length script which was adapted into an audio drama, starring such amazing voice actors as Narutu’s Junko Takeuchi and Noriaki Sugiyama, Daisuke Namikawa (K, Haikyuu!!, Hetalia) and Yuichi Nakamura (Haikyuu!!, Durarara!!).  The artwork is by Japanese illustrator Yamada Shiro.
For anyone who’s heard ‘Yours For An Hour‘, it’s by the same production company; Leaves & Bonds, and obviously, if you’re a SasuNaru fan (like me *coughs*) then it’s definitely a must-have!

The deadline for pre-ordering is on the 16th of February, Japanese time, so anyone interested should get to it, as pre-ordering is the only way to guarantee getting your copy (or copies)!

Summary:
Nobu has always put his family first, even before his own dreams. Just when he’s about to resign himself to the future his father has planned for him, a boy he met 10 years ago reappears and turns his whole world view upside down. Will Kaito be able to show him what it’s like to live a life that’s more free?

The Drama CD comes in two versions, with different epilogues. The drama is recorded in Japanese, but the CD comes with a transcript in English.

You can pre-order the CD until February 16th from Good Smile Shop.

Version B: https://goo.gl/O478yb

This is going to be SO GOOD, so get your copy before the deadline~

You can also converse with Raz on her tumblr, ask questions and otherwise support the project on there.
Even if you can’t afford buying a CD yourself, please spread the word and help support her~

About Pre-orders

I am completely overwhelmed .
You guys have no idea how great it felt to finally lift the veil and tell you everything. The final editing process ended up taking longer than expected, or rather, longer than desired. And then there was the shipping of the books, which took longer than usual, and so I had to let go of my originally intended release date. But now I can finally let you guys in, and it feels amazing.
In a later entry I’ll talk more about the release itself. Right now I just want to make a quick entry for those of you who have pre-ordered your books;

First off: Thank you SO much. I’m completely stunned at how quickly the order ran out. I can’t begin to tell you how amazing that felt.
We decided to allow the pre-order right from the get-go, as we weren’t sure of how long order processing would take, or how long it would take to sell the books – after all, I need to ship them out in time for the release date.

Okay. SO, here’s some info for you all:

– Several people who have placed an order are also participating in the contest. This means that one of you might get a FREE copy. Because of this, I won’t send out any replies to the orders until I’ve elected a winner, as I don’t want to have to make you pay needlessly.
The winner will be elected tonight, and announced asap.

– When I’ve announced the contest winner, I’ll send out a confirmation e-mail to those of you who were the quickest to place your orders.

– Once your payment has been received by me, you will receive a second confirmation. The books will be shipped out next week.

– Unfortunately I’ve had a couple more orders after the 10 available copies were claimed; however, in case someone fails to make their payment, I will keep you on a waiting list, meaning there’s still a chance. But this only applies to those who have already placed an order – please do not make any more orders, as I’m out of stock for the time being. Very sorry about that!


For international buyers:

I am SO incredibly sorry about the total cost being so expensive. I’ve twisted and turned over this, and I even considered not making pre-orders available, largely due to the massive shipping fee from Norway to the rest of the world. My signature honestly isn’t worth that much… But as I’ve received orders from international buyers as well, I couldn’t refuse you. But know that I’ve done everything to try to make this as cheap as possible, and I feel incredibly bad about the shipment cost.
As for the shipping time: International orders will be shipped as soon as possible after the payment clears. Shipping takes about 14 working days, so unfortunately, the novel might arrive sometime after the release date. Unfortunately I can’t do much about that.

Alright. I think that covers what I wanted to say for know. I’ll try to be back this evening with a contest winner!
Thank you very much for reading. If there are any questions, don’t hesitate to comment here or on facebook, or send me an email.
