Hello everyone! 

Thanks to the rather unexpected appearance of the nerdist collection, I had decided to get this project going quite a bit sooner than next year.

So I decided to up my game by asking a graphic designer for the creation of my book cover. I will try my best to get as many followers for this project in the time it will take us to create the cover.

I hope I can attract as many followers as possible. Also, I had asked whatever left of my friends that haven't preorder my other books to order this one. 

Hope this works,

Hi everyone! 

This is the first readers update for Ranked. Which is pretty obvious, but in all seriousness, I am going to share something really important today. Which got nothing to do preorders, YET.

Okay, this book won't start kicking in preorders until at least next year, July the 26th.
So don't hold your breath for anything that is really important about this book quite yet. But you should still tell all your friends that enjoy dystopian YA to follow this book. When I am finished with my first book project(which incidentally, is also sci-fi. Except it's sic-fi thriller not YA. But I urge you guys that do like this genre to support this book. Click this link), then I'll start building the general audience for this book.

The first few chapters are up for preview. For those that don't know, it's online. Look at the first few chapters here:

Go on. I'll wait.

Okay. Now we got that out of the way, it's time for the REAL updates. As had devote a lot of time planning this book, making timelines for the history of the events in the book, character relations, mind maps, general world-building, etc. I have to put a lot of thought into constructing the bare bones of the book. So far, I am proud show you a map of The Atlas. A flying city that will be the central location for the middle bits of the plot where the main character goes up into the sky because of a few key events(I don't do spoilers).

Okay. Does that look badass? Yeah, I'm not exactly a professional graphics designer and I plan to have the Inkshares guys to help me with the graphics. But for now, I'm doing this on my own. I'll send more graphics in the next update. Heck, I might even put up a few more chapters. But for now, that will be all.

Also, I assume you guys had figured out by now the main character is a female. I will reveal her name later on. So yeah. Bye...

    This Idea of a book is very promising. Everthing seems so mystical... I find myself wanting to read more! The way you have written makes me feel as If I already know the main character. Although, I feel as if the first chapter would be more intersting if you wrote a little less about the 'system' and a little more about the main characters life. That way, it will make the reader want to read more to learn about the mysteries of the 'system.' 
    Email me if you would like to share more of your book! I would be more than happy to trade feedback, as I need feedback myself. :)
