Greetings, anime-type folks.

As I say in the title of this thread, I apologize for invading your online space. In the interest of full-disclosure, I should let you know this is the sixth or seventh message board I've signed up for in the past two weeks. I held off on joining this board until this week because I've been gun-shy about it, after being mistakenly called a spambot and banned from two.

I'm currently on what I call an "Online Book Tour" to support my first novel, which I've self-published. I've been joining boards to get to know my target audience, the sci-fi/fantasy and anime/manga communities. It is my hope that, once you get to know me as a person, you might be interested in reading my book (http://tinyurl.com/AdvGuard).

As far as the typical "introduction" stuff goes ... I'm a married recovering otaku who is currently between New York and Texas, mainly due to finishing a Master's degree. I thoroughly enjoy many anime offerings, including (in no particular order):

The Slayers
One Piece
Kare Kano (His and Hers Circumstances)
The work of Satoshi Kon and Hayao Miyazaki
and most anime offerings on [adult swim] with a few exceptions (don't care for Wolf's Rain, Witch Hunter Robin or Death Note).

I hope to get to know you all in the next few days. In the meantime, if you're possibly interested in the book, read this blog. (http://www.sffworld.com/forums/blog.php?u=16418)

Excitement is now brewing, not only from having met you folks here, but also because now my book's available on Amazon. I feel like I've arrived. :D

I know a few people have noticed this, but for all who haven't yet, I've begun using this site's Blogging feature. I just posted two new blogs in the last few minutes. Read and enjoy! :laugh:
