How are you？
It is rainy in Sapporo where typhoon is approaching.
By the way,please let me explain about my plan.It was that A Lemon Tree will be translated in English after it was sold by Japanese readers,because I have no budget for a charge for translation.
But I feel that some supporters from world have be gathering littele by littele,day by day.This is beyond my imagination.I'm very surprised and excited.Thank you really really so much ♡♡♡.
I'm now planning fund-raising by crowdfunding.However,to be honest,I have no confidence for it whether you and they will really donate for it or not.
I know how to write my stories,but never know how to raise money.Also do not know others like eMarketing.I might need a mentor.Now I'm studying about crowdfunding every day.
I am sorry that you can not leave comments on smashwords. I have made my account on facebook, so if you have messege to me,I apologize for the inconvenience, but please send it to me from facebook.
Can I not set up Team Lemon?
May I have a moment of your time?

My name is Yutaka,a Japanese novelist.A Lemon Tree has been my first long story set in Koh Chang and Bangkok,Thailand.I wrote this story in Japanese,because unfortunately can not write it in English.But I wrote it for the readers around the world.It is my dream that it will be translated in English and your languages near future.
Currently, many kinds of violences are trying covering all over the world on earth such as war, terrorism, poverty, unemployment, religious discrimination, family breakdown and others. Everthing is crazy.Especially, I must apologize for children, nature,and people of the world about the nuclear accident in Fukushima.However, the scale of the damages is too large,so I can not even apologize for them.
When I was at the sight of a mom of refugees fleeing from Syria to Europe, I thought that if my story could please her, and if she can stand up again, this might be great thing.
Criticism to politics is important, but I'd like to contribute to society through treatment.Stories have power to treat them.
I believe that our true enemy is emptiness. I'd like to compete in the emptiness with stories, because I am a novelist.
However there is surprisingly no money. It is about trouble in my life. I am looking for those of sponsors and supporters.
