Rainbow Snippets–Tokyo Nights

This week has been a full-on one, filled with teenage drama brought on by the stress of their exams and getting organised for the release in December of Rebellion – my historical novel.

Rainbow Snippets: Tokyo Nights

I had a one-on-one talk with my tutor over the piece of writing (two-thousand word sample of a larger MS) I have been working on for my university course and it didn’t quite go they way I expected. Never thought I would have to defend my story for... Continue Reading →

Rainbow Snippets–Tokyo Nights

This weeks Rainbow Snippet comes from Episode Nine of Tokyo Nights, which is being released this week. Saita ripped open the sachets of sugar sitting next to his cup and tipped each one in.
