A preview short story of the series after Tokyo Demons: Book 3. (Coming summer 2014, after Book 2. Stretch goal from the Book 2 Kickstarter.)
Stretch goal from the Book 2 Kickstarter: In an earlier poll, readers were asked to submit one story idea of LITERALLY ANY REQUEST: hinted canon, alternate universe, off-screen make-outs, Jo Gets Laser Eyes, etc. We put the ideas to a vote and Lianne will be forced to write out the winner, no matter how ridiculous. Winner: Tokyo Demons sports festival and Fight Club, which was suggested anonymously by our #1 fan Norma! She seriously knows this series and its readers, whoa. (Coming summer 2014, after Book 2.)
