Kisetsu: Spring - My Novel Cover! by Hanami-Mai Kisetsu: Spring - My Novel Cover! by Hanami-Mai
A capa de meu romance de ficção histórica, Kisetsu - Volume 1: Primavera .

No Japão do séc.XV, uma longa guerra contra a província rebelde de Mutsu ameaça a supremacia do governo. Para derrotar a insurgência, o shogun vê-se obrigado a buscar alianças, arriscando-se a abalar um frágil equilíbrio entre famílias inimigas. Sob fachada de um festival de Primavera, os senhores provinciais são convocados ao palácio do shogun, em Kyoto, numa confluência de poderes como não se via há uma década, para definir os rumos da guerra e do poder no país. Assim, começa a fiar-se uma intrincada teia de tramas políticas e pessoais envolvendo as famílias mais prestigiosas de um Japão instável. Um mundo repleto de sutilezas, onde rancores e afetos são velados por finas máscaras de formalidade, e conflitos de dever e desejo, lealdade e suspeita, honra e ambição enlaçam vidas e sentimentos no ciclo efêmero das quatro estações.

"Primavera", primeiro de quatro volumes da saga "Kisetsu" (Estações), inicia essa jornada histórica. Com personagens profundos e um enredo intricado, mergulha o leitor na cultura, estética e valores do Japão medieval, encantando-o com suas nuances e instigando-o com sua beleza.


::::UPDATE::::: Além do formato ebook, Kisetsu - Primavera agora também está disponível em formato de livro físico pela Amazon.com: www.amazon.com/Kisetsu-Primave… (lembrando para quem tiver interesse, livros não recebem sobretaxa de importação ^^).

    The Sun rose slowly over the horizon, coloring the sky in rosy tones. Aoi muffled a silent yawn. Her lady would wake up soon, and tea should be served. The hallway was quiet. It was the height of Spring, and the festivities of Hanami[1] had already been going on for three days. Tonight’s banquet and tomorrow’s ceremony would close the event, and the young maid felt relieved.
    Not that the celebration that year wasn’t the most beautiful one she had ever witnessed… But the opulence of the decorations and the sublime beauty of cherry blossoms wasn’t enought to concea

Prelude

     Alright... can you write Ryuu?
    It was a fresh morning in Nara, and in order to enjoy the clear sky, the lady of the mansion and her son had decided to sit at the porch of the East wing, from where they could see the lake and the garden.
     Ryuu... it’s too hard.
     But it’s your name, isn’t it? It’s important to know how to write it.
     ...I can write Daichi.
    The lady Masako was thirty-two years old. She was a woman of delicate features, soft complexion and long dark hair, its front cut nose-high in straight bangs that gracefully framed her oval face. First daughter of Kujou Masamoto, the illustrious kampaku to Emperor Sora, she had honoured him, at the ag
   Kisetsu: Spring - Chpt 1.2
    Ryuu Hideki, lord of Owari province and the castle of Nagoya, and ruling daimyo of Tokaido, Mino and Yamato[1], was a proud, austere man. Although he had just arrived from a long trip to the allied city of Osaka less than half an hour ago, his appearance was flawless when Kyuumura Kentaro, who had traveled in the same retinue and not even changed from his travel clothes yet, presented himself and his wife before him, at the main hall of his mansion in Nara.
    The head of the wealthy Ryuu household was forty years old. With arched eyebrows and elegant features, he conveyed a distinguished presence, stressed by a haughty posture. His dark hair was tied in an impeccable bun, and a meticulously trimmed goatee adorned the tip of his chin. He was dressed in a dark hue of teal, same color of the fan in his hand, and had the mon

A bela arte me chamou a atenção. e que surpresa agradável ao ler a descrição e saber que é uma sinopse excelente, de uma obra que aparenta ter uma gama muito vasta de informação cultural sobre o Japão. Parabéns pela obra. Tenho uma dúvida, há alguma versão em português?

Muito obrigada! Sim. O romance é escrito em português, e é possível ler o início sem custos, via um link no canto direito da página do ebook, na Amazon.com.br: www.amazon.com.br/gp/product/B… . O livro também pode ser lido na íntegra, gratuitamente, por membros do Kindle Unlimited (link na mesma página), e está disponível para venda como ebook e livro impresso (a segunda opção, via Amazon.com americana).

Novamente, agradeço muito pelos elogios e pelo interesse em meu trabalho!

Obrigado novamente pela atenção. É muito bom ver que há ótimos escritores nacionais, porém é uma pena que a divulgação em nosso país é tão limitada, e muitos que possuem uma qualidade incrível acabam passando despercebido. Desejo sucesso e parabéns novamente.

Good to see you're still doing well, I've been missing seeing your work in my Notification Inbox, I was a bit worried your wrist might not have rejuvenated as much as anticipated.
Nevertheless, I'm overjoyed to see you're still alive~<3
