40 days to the Year of the Snake

January 2, 2013

Zipangu, Year of the Dog 1274: The Second WaveI’ve never been one for traditional New Year celebrations but I do tend to celebrate Chinese New Year. With this in mind I am offering copies of my historical Japanese novella Zipangu, Year of the Dog 1274: The Second Wave for the special price of $0.99 for the 40 days to the Year of the Snake. For a sample book page and to purchase see The Year of the Snake begins on the 10th February 2013. Is this your year, your Chinese animal sign?

Your animal sign corresponds to your year of birth. You can discover which of the twelve animals you are by consulting relevant charts but remember to take note of your date of birth as it may belong to the animal sign of the previous year, for example:

Jan 28th 1960 – Year of the Rat

Feb 15th 1961 – Year of the Ox

Feb 5th 1962 – Year of the Tiger

Jan 25th 1963 – Year of the Rabbit

Feb 13th 1964 – Year of the Dragon

Feb 2nd 1965 – Year of the Snake

Jan 21st 1966 – Year of the Horse

Feb 9th 1967 – Year of the Ram

Jan 30th 1968 – Year of the Monkey

Feb 17th 1969 – Year of the Rooster

Feb 6th 1970 – Year of the Dog

Jan 27th 1971 – Year of the Pig

And the reason why years start and end on different days in the 12 year cycle is all down to the moon.

Whether you follow a lunar or a solar calendar I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year!
