This page serves as a guide when making a new book article. Sections can be omitted if the book does not include anything to fill out those sections.

Book Infobox Template[]

Place the Infobook template at the beginning of the article. Fill out the spaces provided. If you can't place any information in a specific area, then the parameter can be deleted.

| title =

| rdate = 
| pub =

Underneath the template, write one or two sentences about the book, including the author's name. If the novel is part of a series, be sure to include the series' name and where it rests within that series.

The Perfumed Sleeve is the ninth novel by Laura Joh Rowland and the ninth entry in the Sano Ichirō series. It was originally published on April 6, 2004 by St. Martin's Minotaur.


Write out the summary for the book from one of the following websites:

  • Rowland's official website
  • Rowland's official Facebook page
  • The back of a paperback copy of the book.
  • The cover jacket of a hardcover copy of the book.

Cite your source! If a reference isn't given after the summary, the summary will either be removed or replaced.


Write the dedication. If the dedication needs an explanation, please provide one, but keep the explanation short and to the point.


Write the acknowledgements. If one of the people acknowledged has their own Wikipedia page, give a link to their page using the [[wikipedia:Page_Name]] code.

Historical Note[]

Give a summary of any historical notes. The summary shouldn't be longer than a paragraph (around five to six sentences).


Give a summary of the books plot. Don't start copying the text verbatim! That is plagiarism and it could get this wiki into legal trouble. Any editors found practicing this will be blocked or temporarily banned depending on several factors, such as frequency and severity.


Make a list of the characters who appeared in this book. If a character is mentioned but doesn't have a physical presence, put "(mentioned)" next to their name.


List all of the characters who make their first appearance.


List all of the characters who appeared in previous books and show up in this one.

Character Deaths[]

Make a table of any characters who died/were murdered during the novel.

! width="33.33%" style="text-align:center" | Name

If there are any terms or phrases that would be unfamiliar to the average audience, list them here. Write one or two sentences explaining each term/phrase.

Categories that have to be added.


These are categories that are applied on a case-by-case basis.

  • Category:Novels - If the book can be classified as a novel, add this category.
  • Category:Comics - If the book can be classified as a comic or graphic novel, add this category.


These categories reflect the completion status of the article.
