Listen and Learn Japanese in your Car, at the Gym, or on your Computer ON SALE

Introducing a new line of products at TheJapanShop.com. We will be producing a number of audio only products that are designed to be useful without the need of any written material. We will, however, include a PDF of the transcript and more detailed grammatical explanations.

Both of these products have been around for a while, but I’m excited to announce we are now including MP3s that can be burned to a CD or added to a playlist. These specially prepared audio files (weeks worth of dedicated work!) were designed so the listener wouldn’t need to be viewing a PDF or Kindle ebook to learn. This is especially good for commuters, joggers, or just something to listen to as you go to bed at night.

 

But we are still including the PDF, Kindle ebook, and Nook ebook files too! And Get all these for half price. (until Sunday)

Just for perspective, we are selling The Meetings and Greetings product on Amazon MP3 for $8.99 and that does not include the PDFs or ebook formats–if you bought it through Amazon, however, contact me for the other stuff!

* NOTE: If you bought either of these products at any time in the past for more than .99, email clay for a free download. Past free promotions do not apply–sorry, but we have put A LOT of effort into this!

Learn Japanese through Dialogues At the Restaurant Kindle eBook

Brand New! Learn Japanese through Dialogues: at the Restaurant ebook.

We produced an iPhone app last year on Japanese Dialogues. It was a HUGE undertaking, but as a result, I have tons of data to work with. I’m slowly organizing the hundreds of sound files and XML spreadsheets so that the information can be repackaged for ebooks and as audiobooks.

We finished the ebook of the “At the Restaurant” topic a few weeks ago and it is finally up on Amazon. The audiobook is far more challenging (imagine converting an ebook explaining Japanese conversation, grammar, and vocabulary into an audio-only format). But I hope to have that finished next week.

While we are using the same basic information across platforms, each product has been created with that platform in mind.

All formats include audio files (the ebooks have a link to the download on the last page)

iPhone: Japanese Dialogues (FREE download, then buy the At the Restaurant as an in-app purchase)

Amazon Kindle: Learn Japanese through Dialogues: at the Restaurant $4.99

B&N Nook: Learn Japanese through Dialogues: at the Restaurant $4.99

TheJapanShop.com: Learn Japanese through Dialogues: at the Restaurant $4.99

Audiobook (on iTunes & Amazon MP3) Coming soon!

CJ Martin’s Two Tocks Before Midnight Audiobook Coming

We (really meaning, I–Clay) are thrilled to announce the coming audiobook version of CJ Martin’s Two Tocks before Midnight novella. It is a Sherlock Holmes-esque story that takes the reader back to 19th century Boston.

There is a murder. All members of the Agora Society is at risk; all members are suspect. Only one man, Carl Brooke, has the knowledge and expertise to stop the murderer…

Wayne Farrell will do the narration. He has a marvelous voice and is just perfect for the story. I can’t wait to post excerpts!

Here is the coming audiobook cover:

If you haven’t read it, I don’t think you will be disappointed–check it out on Amazon here or for your Nook here.

Kotoba Books to Publish E.C. Smith’s Covenant Series

I’m happy to announce Kotoba Books will be soon publishing Mr. Smith’s Covenant, a 150,000 word fantasy novel.

A book description in progress (very much subject to change!):

Elves, Dwarves, and humans face threats from surrogates sent by the evil Desolate–the dark elves.  It is the early years of recovery following a devastating war between the Desolate and their cousins, the Firstborn. No race has been left unscathed and trust runs thin.

The humans, aided by the Firstborn, have experienced a period of unparalleled prosperity. And now they are preparing to herald the first human king.

But not all clans are happy with the coming changes…

Political intrigue between the human houses threatens the first civil war in human history. Prophesy links the races, and a secret–hidden amongst the humans–is about to be revealed.

If you are interested in fantasy (in English) and would like to read an “uncorrected manuscript” as the New York publishers say, please contact me to be on a beta reader’s list. Extra eyes prior to publication is always good!
