Survivors, thanks a lot for the ride.
Survivors of the warp, thanks you.
I have been meaning to write this update for a few days but I just now have the time to do it.
Thanks to every single one of you following the project. Those of you I knew before the contest, everyone I met because of the contest. Those following the contest, my fellow contestants and those who came on here for the book. Those who have pre-ordered, those who have not. (Hoping there is a "yet" somewhere.) Thanks you to every one for your attention to the book. It makes me proud to know that my book is interesting to people.
Since I will have more time to create content for the campaign, I want to ask you guys something. I have heard from my close friends some of their reticence about the book. And they have for the most part been corrected. But I never asked you guys, the 90%+ of my followers, what made you reticent with pre-ordering or showing the book to your friends and family members.
Where can you tell me such things? 1) Here, on Inkshares, through DMs. 2) You can go through my e-mail also. Everyone should also have received at least a single message from me on their e-mail. 3) Twitter. Send me a short tweet about DM and I will follow you so we can talk. 4) Facebook. The book has a page on Facebook even though I didn’t get the time yet to post everything I have here. I should resolve that soon. Still, you can send me message through the page.
I can’t thanks you guys and gals enough for the attention you are giving me. The Stratos saga is a project I have been preparing for a while now and, as stupid as it may seems, it has to be the story I want the most for people to be able to read.
Hello again, survivors.
Survivors of the warp, hello again.It is a beautiful moonlight night here as I write this message and bring you some good news!
If you remember the road map I gave 48 hours ago, you will remember 4 things being on my list for the very near future. And I am happy to say, 2 of those are checked, stroked and have drawings of cakes and balloons over them! (I need to stop, now...)
First, I have to thanks a whole lot Landon Trine for the beautiful cover art. He contacted me for the cover and I have to say, he did a wonderful job on the cover in such a small time. If you want to help me thanks Landon, go on his page and look at his books and follow/pre-order what you like, recommend, review. He deserves any positive attention you can give him.
Second, as promised, a new chapter is up, called And They Fought till Dawn. Go read it. I’ll wait.
You are back? Gives you more clues on the style of the book than a prologue doesn’t it? What? The redaction thing? Let me explain.
In Chapter Nine, Chimera talks at some point about her past with Sliver, a character we see a few times in the previous chapters of the book and I thought, ’If it isn’t for this part being a bit of a spoiler, this chapter is just perfect as a preview. Combat, discussion, mystery. It has everything the book loves.’ So, I had to cut that part unfortunately. Sorry about it. I promise I will keep the spoiler redaction to a minimum in the future samples.
So, now that those two elements are done, what’s next this time?
While this update is getting long, I would like to quickly end with a list of people I thankful about:
On this note, I will return to the moon’s glow and keep on plotting the destructi- eh, I mean continuation of this world of mine.
Hello survivors of the warp,The contest starts today and I have to say, I am pretty stoked about it. So before I go to sleep for the first night of the contest, I want to give you a glimpse into the pipeline for the upcoming week:First off, I am going to be working on finishing the draft so that I can push out more chapters as the contest progress. I am currently looking at one chapter in particular to upload pretty soon. Maybe Wednesday, maybe Friday? At worst, it should be out Sunday. You won’t want to miss it as it is a mix of a everything you can expect from the book in a single chapter. Yeah, crazy, I know.
Next in the pipeline is something I have a little less control on. You may have noticed I have a blank cover for the moment. Well, I am looking into it and I might just have someone designing a very simple but elegant cover for the time being.
And finally, once the book is done and another chapter is out, (since I don’t want to rely on Chapter One since it doesn’t necessarily do the book justice by it being a prelude) I will be working on a video to quickly explain the concept of the book to anyone who doesn’t have the time in their busy life to read everything I will be releasing during the contest.
So yeah, I think I have my work cut out for me in the next weeks. Until I can show more signs of life, I will return to my little book hut and write, write, write, write....
PS: I might post some exclusif stuff at some point from the point of view of the characters. Keep your eyes peeled for that.
