Tanaka and the Yakuza’s Daughter for .99 + Free Audio

Now available at Amazon and BN.com!

As mentioned earlier, I’m also bundling the Audio book MP3s with the ebook for free.  (I’ll release that as podcasts here starting next week.)

I’m very excited about this first step.  I’m working with someone on the full length novel.  He has an unusual gift of beautifully polishing otherwise dull sentences.  We both have “real” jobs so progress is painfully slow.  But progress is being made. 

Back to this story…

Akira Tanaka’s past as an undercover agent in Tokyo’s underworld has caught up with his present.  Now he must find out who kidnapped his only daughter, and why.  Can he rescue her before it’s too late?

The lives of a father, a daughter, and a yakuza’s daughter are all intertwined in this fast-paced 7,500 word short story.  This is the first in a series of thrilling adventures featuring Tanaka.

 My grand marketing plan will involve:

  1. Contacting friends and family begging them to purchase it and write an honest review.
  2. Releasing the promo video (which is awesome, by the way) on Youtube.com through both my new account and TheJapanShop.com’s.
  3. Work on getting name recognition (twitter, facebook, forums, blog posts) while writing and writing…

We’ll see how this goes.  But here is the first step.
