Bitter/Sweet: Okashi to Ongaku Monogatari

Hi, everyone!  After vacillating over my newest writing project, I am pleased to announce that I’m finally putting it online for everyone to read.

The title of the new project is  Bitter/Sweet – お菓子 と 音楽 物語 (Okashi to Ongaku Monogatari – A Story with Sweets and Music).  This was inspired in part by a conversation I had with my sister some time ago about what happened to some famous musicians or actors who suddenly withdrew from show-business to open shops or join some other profession.

The heroine in this particular tale is Hecate-Hestia Maravilla, a successful confectioner/patissier who runs a cafe-patisserie in one of the better parts of Manila.  Once the bassist of Asia’s hottest musical export to the world, she has left the sound and the fury for a number of serious reasons.  As to what they are and why she thought it wise to leave will be the main idea of this particular story.

The story can be found at Vanilla Marmalade, my story/J-rock fangirling blog.  The Prologue and Chapter One are already up.

Any comments you may have are sincerely appreciated.  Putting Bitter/Sweet online is actually something of an experiment as I want to know how people will react to my writing before I send anything off to the professionals for review.

Best regards to everyone and I hope to hear from you.
