New Site and Now a Geisha News

Site News

Welcome to the new version of my site!

I've been working on it pretty much non-stop for more than a month now, so after this brief introduction I'm going to step away for a week or two. I need a break!

I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be back to my regular blogging schedule on Sunday, August 26 and every month after that.

For now, please enjoy all the new images and information about me, my work and my books. There is plenty to explore in all 6 of the new galleries and on the various pages!

Now a Geisha News

I have received inquiries in the past few months about when Now a Geisha would be available again at

I didn't have an answer then, but I do now.

The book is back in stock at Amazon, but there are only a limited number of copies available. The reason for this is that my publisher, IBC Publishing, is based in Tokyo, and they are selling Now a Geisha as a third-party seller in the US. Amazon is fulfilling the orders.

The reason Now a Geisha has been unavailable is because it sold out more quickly than the other books IBC is offering at Amazon US. This is good for IBC and me, but not for prospective buyers who had to wait for IBC to have to restock several titles, not just mine!

I apologize if you've had to wait, but if you click anywhere on this sentence, you'll be able to buy Now a Geisha at right now!

Big Seller at Amazon Japan

For those interested, Now a Geisha has been selling incredibly well at Amazon Japan. It has ranked as high as 309 in the past few months of all foreign-language books for sale on That's all languages, not just English! And all books, not just photo books!

I'm amazed and thankful that so many people have been interested in geisha and my photographs and words.

May it continue!

I'll see you again on August 26, and I will of course post a photo then.

Enjoy the rest of the summer!
