“Kameoka Diaries 1” PDF–Now Available! “Kameoka Diaries 2”–Coming Soon!

Wow, it’s been a looong time since I’ve updated–almost two months! I’ll try to update a bit more frequently in the future!

Anyway, a couple pieces of news about my digital comics:

“The Kameoka Diaries: Volume One” PDF– Now Available!
The Kameoka Diaries has been available on the iBookstore for a few months now, but that excludes people without iPhones/iPads from buying it. A few people asked for a non-Apple option, so I finally got my act together and created a PDF for the Kameoka Diaries: Volume One. You can buy it here for $1 (or more, if you want!):


Actually, it’s been available for sale for like a month; I announced it on Facebook and Twitter, but never actually bothered to write an entry about it for my website. Yup, I’m a marketing genius, all right. Subsequently, sales have been, well, terrible. If you’re interested in seeing more of my work in PDF form, please consider picking it up! I’ll try to market it more effectively and see how it does, but if sales don’t pick up I probably won’t bother turning The Kameoka Diaries: Volume Two into a PDF when the time comes. And speaking of The Kameoka Diaries: Volume Two…


“The Kameoka Diaries: Volume Two” Coming Soon!
Just today I finished the artwork for the book. Here’s what the cover looks like:

All that remains to do now is a bit of proofreading/fixing minor mistakes; I expect to finish that this week or early next week. Then I’ll submit the files to Apple and wait for their approval. For the first book that took about a month, so I expect the book will be available late-August or early-September or so. I’ll keep you posted!

    I’m a fan of your work and picked up Tonoharu last month but I’d feel more comfortable and I imagine others would too if your PDF versions were marketed on the Android equivalent of Apple which is Google Play. Heck even Amazon might be more available resource to consumers as it already has a base as big as Apple’s that might contribute to your sale base.

    • Hello Guest_526:Yes, I totally get where you’re coming from. I tried to get the book on Google Play, but they took a *huge* percentage of the sale, so I had to give up on them. And Amazon isn’t a viable option for books with lots of graphics, because of the fees they charge for large file sized ebooks.
      I hope to eventually get it up on one of these services some day, but at present it isn’t possible, unfortunately.

    Hooray! Looking forward to picking up volume 2.

  • ILikeGoodThings

    Yes…looking forward to Vol. 2.

    Thanks for Vol. 2. The “extra chapter” was quite powerful, because I didn’t expect this change of tone.

    Looking forward to your new works!

    • Thanks for the feedback, and for picking up the book! You were actually the first person to buy it; even before I announced it was available! So again, thanks!
