Check out the, still under construction, official blog of the Karui Shosetsu Magazine!
Comment, follow often, and vote.
We are nearing the release of the magazine.
But were mainly waiting for the website to be finished, or at least presentable.

Well, its been awhile since I last made the announcement about RNM standing for Raito Noberu Magazine.
Now, that translates into LIGHT NOVEL MAGAZINE.
The name has changed to KARUI SHOSETSU MAGAZINE (which means the same, lol).
The first issue is done, I am just editing one more page. We have close to 200 pages and almost 50,000 words and 11 stories.
We are looking forward to reviews and encourage anybody with a public blog or website to review the magazine and give their takes on it.
We are confident you will find at least one story you can really like in it.
I am thinking of maybe sending advance copies to a few for a pre-release review. Anyone want to sign up? lol
Anyways, will keep you updated.
However, the OFFICIAL website isn't how I want it. It's pitiful at the moment. :(
Oh well, it'll get better soon, I hope.
Tell your friends about it, hope for a release this week or next week, however, knowing how things go, it'll probably end up coming out at best next week.
Again, spread the word. :)
