The final chapter and the afterword is uploaded together.
“The Snow Country Hunting Life of the Northern Nobleman and the Raptor Wife” is now finished.
How many final chapters have you written!? You might say, but it’s really finished now.
It became the longest one out of all my works.
This work received an award at the 3rd Elysium Novel Competition, and it was even published into a book. You never know what might happen in life, I recall thinking back then.
I’m very thankful to the one in charge of design and illustrations, Akaneko (あかねこ)-sensei. No words of gratitude will be enough.
Also, I think working with an editor affected my work a lot.
Just a few words of advice could evolve into a story. I received a lot of help.
The second last line of the final chapter, “Hunting, gathering and eating! That’s all there is, but these are lovely days.” That line was thanks to my editor.
The moment I saw that, I immediately liked it, thinking that it captured the spirit of the novel.
I asked for permission and used it for the final chapter.
The people I want to thank the most are the readers that continued to support me.
Thanks to your support, I could continue until the end, and I even managed to get the novel published.
Thank you very much.
I’ll continue to write stories that will satisfy you.
Thank you so much!
Finally, here are some pictures that Akaneko-sensei drew:
Hello everyone, this is Kudarajin (AKA Christina).
It’s already been half a year since I started translating, and I’ve now finished translating my second series. I’ve come quite a long way, if I say so myself.
I felt many things as I worked on this series.
The series, though I am just a translator, felt like my own work. I loved it and hated it as I chewed through the words.
I took up translating this series since I loved it. Back then, I had only read up to the end of the second volume. It was such a sweet story, that I felt that I had to share it with more people.
Now, about half a year later, I finished working on it. I still have three more extra chapters to go, but the main series is finished now.
I would like to thank the readers for their continued support. The likes and the comments instilled me with no little joy, and also imbued in me the strength and willpower to continue seeing the series to the end.
My only complaint might be that it would have been nicer were I to have more people commenting.
Anyhow, now my main project is finished. I’m thinking of going on a break for about a fortnight after finishing the three extra chapters of this series.
For the readers of my other projects, please do not worry, as I will keep working on ‘The Wolf Lord’s Lady’ and ‘At the Northern Fort’.
I hope you will continue taking care of me.
Edit: Heh, funny that this is the 200th post.
