Hello again my lovely readers!
Wow time certainly flies!
Its been a whole month since last I contacted you all, and honestly, not much has happened with the book since then. This update is more to explain my situation and what my next step will be.
So as of now, I officially have my professional Cover art by the lovely Kaytalin Platt. She certainly did an amazing job with it. I also have more character art in the works right now, along with a new intro video!
So nothing too major. Just more cosmetic things to keep people engaged.
Honestly Since the beginning of September, my campaign has stagnated.and not many people have pre-ordered my book since. Do not really know why, but I assume its the fact i have been SO BUSY.
Ive had an uphill battle with this book campaign and I really dont know where Im gonna end up with it. But for now all I can do is continue to write it and continue campaigning. To all you readers, I’d like to ask you to spread the word of my book along with me, by myself has been... stressful to say the least. Thank you for all your support thus far.

Hope all is well, 
-Joseph

So I just had an awesome idea.
I won’t be able to write every single day, but I am going to try writing a Diary for my book’s main character. It seems like it would be fun to write and It would engage more with you guys. Ill test it out later tonight and hopefully it goes well!

Hello again Readers!
Its been a while since my last update, so I thought I’d give you all something to occupy your time with.
Two big announcements:
First being Ive extended my campaign for the beginning of November to the end of December. The 31st to be exact.
Second, I found an artist to do all my character art! The lovely artist Hommicue of Deviantart has agreed to make my artwork. I love the work shes done so far, and hopefully you all will as well! The first piece of art is up right now on my page! Go check it out if you havent already.

Lastly Id also like to thank you all one last time for all the fantastic support youve given me. Its driven me to do the best that possibly can and so far alot has happened that I’m so grateful for.
And its all possible thanks to you, the readers. I am ecstatic to get even more lovely readers.

Much love,
-Joseph

Hello again readers!
Alright, probably would help If I actually updated you guys on whats going on. As of this morning we hit 38 orders, and 24 readers. Astounding numbers considering I’m a first time author! I’m so proud of my book and how far it has come. It’s no where near being done, but I’m just getting started!
I will be reaching out to more and more active authors on Inkshares to spread the word of my baby. Hopefully through persistence and determination we can make Aellor Prophecies go all the way!

This week is the fourth week of the contest and will be marking the end of the first month. I’m well on track to have over 40 preorders!
Keep pushing friends! This was the first step, this was the proof I needed that I can make this work, and work it shall!
From now on I’ll be releasing new chapters every sunday, I already have four saved up, so by the end of the competition, I hope to have a total of ten chapters! All for your viewing pleasure. Any and all advice and critique is appreciated. Please feel free to share the chapters to others as well! Its easy to get people to look at a site, but its hard to get anyone to buy with out having something to back.

Thanks again -Joseph

Hello again readers!
Here we are starting the 4th week of the competition and alot of great authors have stolen the spotlight! Ive never had the honor of being apart of the writing process for other authors, and ill admit it: I love it.
This whole site has made me a die hard inksharesian from all the amazing support. Not just from readers, but from fellow authors as well!
Ive gotta say this contest is becoming more about me making friends then actually trying to compete!
I love all the books on here and all the great vibes Ive received from other forum posts. These kinds of things are rare and I am honored to be apart of it now.
I must thank all the readers once more as we continue forward. Without you, I would not be here. I would just be a nobody trying to make it through life. Now because of all the lovely people who have supported me, I get to follow my dreams, and meet new amazing authors along the way!
Heres to a bright future for the world of reading!

Much love,
-Joseph

Hello again readers!
Its currently week three, soon to be week four of the contest, and ive reached 30 preorders!
Im shocked at this and cant believe ive hit this milestone so early.
I still got plenty of gas in the tank for the rest of the month to even hit 50!
That would put me to the moon! Thank you all so much for supporting me.

As of right now, im sitting at 18 readers as well, id love to see 20 by the end of the weekend! It would really solidify my spot in the contest.

There are alot of talented writers in this contest, and they are (moslty) supportive. Seems like alot of them want nothing more than to spread the love of reading and writing!

I cant wait to see what you all think of my second chapter that I will be putting up this weekend!

Thanks again,
-Joseph

With all the commotion in my life recently, Ive striven for a better life. I needed an outlet to pour my creativity into. Thankfully because of the lovely people at Geek and Sundry and at Inkshares, I am able to put my idea out into the world. I want to personally thank all the readers Ive gathered so far, though it’s not many. You’ve all believed in my idea and put your money behind me. That is an incredibly humbling experience and I wish every writer could experience it.

I don’t plan to sit at 16 preorders at the time of writing this for very long however.

For those of you who are willing to support me, please tell others you know about my book! Tell your family, your friends, your pets, the neighbors, your weird co workers. I need all the support from every single source I come across. I have alot of ground to make up if I wanna have a chance to get a top spot for the Geek and Sundry Fantasy contest.

Thank you all again for your support

-Joseph
