The Mothra Song

The Shobijin, twin tiny fairies telepathically connected to Mothra

In Japanese:
Mosura ya Mosura
Tasukete yo te yobeba
Toki o koete
Umi o koete
Nami no yo ni yatte kuru
Mosura ya Mosura
Yasashisasae wasure
Hito no kokoro
Inorinagara utau
Ai no uta
In English:
Mothra O Mothra
If we were to call for help
Over time
Over sea
Like a wave you'd come
Our guardian angel
Mothra O Mothra
Of forgotten kindness
And ruined spirits
We pray for the people's
Spirit as we sing
This song of love.

Drawn Closer by Amy B. Trosino

On behalf of International Authors, I am happy to announce the publication of Amy B. Trosino's collection of pen and ink drawings, Drawn Closer.

"The pen and ink drawings in this book are samples from my life placed under a microscope. They are highly autobiographical and invite the viewer to look closely for hidden and obvious meanings in detail. Through this technique, the immersion into every aspect of being, from the minute cellular level of the physical to the vast intangible potency of the spiritual, is revealed."                                                                                      --Amy B. Trosino

Reclamation by Elkie Riches

On behalf of International Authors, I am happy to announce the publication of the novel Reclamation by Elkie Riches.

Leda Varsis is a shaman--more precisely, she is a member of the Shaman Division, serving the global military order that has survived the apocalyptic event known as the Turning. Adapted from past mysticism to military specifications, the Shaman Division provides communication channels between the enemy and mankind. When Leda is assigned to the military base of ex-London, she intends to carry out her role but the communications that come to her are not what she expects.

Characteristic of Elkie Riches' previous work are her readable, precise and often-elegant prose, and her preoccupation with nature, manifested in its creative force. Both things are to be found in this novel, set in a rapidly-changing environment becoming ever more hostile for human beings. Excellent observation and a mounting sense of danger combine to create an outstanding novel that presents humanity in a way that is unflattering but which leaves room for hope.                     
                                                                        --Langdon Jones
