Remember how I said first week of April? Yeah, nope. As of tonight the Starlit Ruins available for download at Smashwords
. For absolutely free, because - well, I can't charge for stuff I don't own. It's no small work, either: 169K words, two parts consisting of 50 chapters, 478 pages (paperback).
I guess it just makes sense to bring it back when Sailor Moon has hit it big, but I didn't plan it that way. It just nagged at me. Two years later, here we are. Here's the synopsis:What if Sailor Moon were sent to the war torn, magic rich Earth of Palladium's Rifts? What if a new player replaced Beryl with brutal new tactics? What if a new team of young heroes filled the gap left by the Sailor Senshi on Earth? Can a rag-tag group of magically gifted individuals protect Japan? What will it take to defeat the new, more visceral approach of the Negaforce?
Scattered to the four winds, what hope can the Senshi find, and who are these strangers who seem so interested in their survival? How will the new environment affect them, and what will the Coalition do when they encounter these pretty D-bees? Can they be saved from dangerous experimentation? Let's find out...
There's been artwork from this novel sitting in my gallery for years now, and with this out, you can find out where it all came from. Additionally, I've re-scanned the original artwork inspired by this book, and I plan to post those sooner than later, time allowing.
Just ask yourself, how would Makoto manage life as a Cyber-Knight? What would happen if the Coalition laid their hands on Ami or Rei? It's not a light romp, either, so buckle in!
Ta for now!
