physical copy of shine the brightest came today,,,,, it looks. incredible
Behold! Shine the Brightest is now available as a paperback!!! You can buy it here.
If it’s not available in your region, *probably* you just need to wait a couple of days and then it will be. My understanding is that sometimes it takes a few days before it’s fully processed, and I just finalized everything yesterday.
I have also reformatted the e-book… I caught some lingering typos when I was going through the hardcopy proof (*sobs in a corner*) and some formatting issues, so those should now be fixed. I am very sorry for the previous errors =(
I feel like I am unduly plagued by typos. I think there are some people who don’t have nearly as many errors from the get-go, and I envy those people SO MUCH. I used to think it’s just because I type fast, but then I noticed I’ll have typos when I’m *handwriting* things out, which I know does not quite count as a typo and I don’t know how that happens, but there we go.
At any rate. Fixed now!! The paperback version is pretty cool.
Also, just as a general head’s up, if anyone is on twitter and would like to find me there, I’m at twitter.com/writemichaelaro. While there isn’t much there yet, I am hoping to be more engaged with it as I figure things out =)
Reblogging here to announce that Shine the Brightest is for sale as a paperback AND I am on twitter, for anyone who is interested in either of those facts =D
thinking abt how the second hinami thought abt how she couldn’t function around pretty girls and then was like or pretty boys and i sent an anonymous ask in that was like “HINAMI BI??” yes, me over a year ago. hinami bi.
poll: post or post with directors commentary (neither are my post)
Akaryu Masaomi is in bed, although not asleep, when they come to arrest him.
It had been a pleasant evening, spent in the enjoyable company of a woman who is now passed out in the bed beside him. She had told him her name but he can’t remember it now. In fact, he can’t even remember if she told him what she was. Not that it matters, but it’s usually polite amongst bedfellows.
He would have recognized another dragon, and one of the lower divisions wouldn’t have been allowed at the party they had been at. Given her amber eyes and her stamina, he’s guessing she’s a tiger. He had told her, “You’re going to have to leave after we’re done, I don’t sleep next to other people.” She had just said in a purring sort of way, “Who said anything about sleeping?”
Which had been too tempting of an offer to make a big deal out of things, although now that dawn is approaching and she’s asleep in his bed and he’s very much not asleep in his bed, he somewhat wishes that he’d been more insistent.
The feeling becomes all the more relevant when the doors of his room are broken down with a deafening burst, and his bedroom is insultingly filled with the Tenou army, all pointing their guns at him.
This is not how Masaomi wants to spend his morning, and all things considered, if he is must be surrounded by armed soldiers he would very much prefer not to be naked.
“Akaryu Masaomi, you are under arrest.”
He takes a few seconds to compose himself in the face of this indignity, refusing on principle to seem at all surprised by this intrusion. He just sits upright in his bed and smiles slowly. “Am I?”
Then the other grand dragons enter his room, and he knows he’s fucked.
Reblogging the first chapter of Shine the Brightest over here, since I just now remembered that was something I meant to do much sooner than this =P
Side note, my adventures in having two blogs so far is just an exchange of reblogging myself. I will come up with something more interesting to do on the other blog, I swear.
Loved the ending of 'This is Love'. It was so amazing to read this conclusion story to the KnB part of D:M. I think I might have cried when I finished reading it - I've read D:M since 2016 and it's my fav KnB fic series. I love it so much and it's so close to my heart. But I am so hype to read 'Shine the Brightest' (About to buy it!) and any future fics for D:M! Wanna share any tidbits about what anime will feature next for D:M? ;) All the love you amazing author!
Thank you so much, anon-friend! I’m glad you enjoyed the ending!! And it is so amazing there are people who have been reading this story for the past four years, thank you so much.
I wasn’t sure how many tidbits of the loose ideas I’ve been having for Designation: Miracle I should share, since I don’t want to get people too excited for a story that is probably not going to be written for a good long while. (I am SO COMMITTED to finishing that Fantasy AU. And Fairy Tale KagaKuro. Those are the two stories that haunt me the most, and they’re for sure where I’m turning next.)
BUT. I will say, the most likely candidate to expand D:M (at the moment) is Yuri on Ice. I would need to re-watch the anime before I do, but I have an idea for the next extension of D:M and Yuri on Ice would work really well for it. Although, if it ever gets a second season, that might change things, so WE SHALL SEE.
Thank you again for reading the series, I hope you enjoy Shine the Brightest!
