Takatsu is the first English cell phone novelist in the West, through the first English language cell phone novel website http://textnovel.com Through the popular Secondhand Memories and his later works, he has won various awards and is moving projects towards publication. Feel free to contact for more information or if you'd like to get involved.



After six years of memories and history-in-the-making, originally serialized and made popular online, the highly-anticipated and beloved pioneer English cell phone novel, "Secondhand Memories", a young adult coming-of-age story that had sparked a movement and created communities, is officially released on February 14th, Valentine's Day, 2015 as ebook and a massive 6" x 9" 558-page paperback print book with stunning anime cover illustrations, interior formatting and graphic design, according to popular demand! It is now available for pre-order, so be sure to grab a copy or a few as keepsakes, fond memories, seasonal gifts or for inspirational reading pleasure http://www.amazon.com/Secondhand-Memo...

If you would like personal signed book arrangements, please ask me privately first (limited priority and quantities)!

The official Project website has been launched at http://secondhandmemories.net/ for more information.

Truly thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout my journey, whether it was my music, my cell phone novel work and my current literary writing - I would not be able to continue to do what I love without you. Welcome the journey, for new friends.
