Ladies and gentlemen,

I would like to present to you my first guest blog, as featured on fellow inkshares-author Jamison Stone's website apotheosisstudios.com:

http://apotheosisstudios.com/blog/2015/10/7/inkshares-author-vincent-lim-the-cora-chronicles-genesis-guest-post

The following is an excerpt from the blog:

"This book is a must-read for sci-fi aficionados who want to be immerse in a unique story that embodies the age-old causality dilemma of the chicken and the egg.  It has heaps of action, explosions, CQC, epic struggles, a wormhole, time-travel and of course, robots (including very formidable robot-piloting robots or AVATARS -- think GUNDAM mobile suits) and a couple of humans to make the story relatable.

So, what or who came first? Humans or robots?"

10% of e-book goal achieved!

Another 90% to go, but it'll happen sooner if you got out there and pitched my book to another 10 good friends (or just 1 really good BFF)!

This is a story that has robots, wormholes, blackhole (just the one), battleships, time-travel, explosions, kung-fu, more robots, more explosions and a bit of romance thrown into the mix. What more can you ask for in a book? It's a page-turner! Trust me!

So, what are you waiting for?

As promised, this update begins a series of showcasing some artwork that I have 'acquired' during my travels around the internet seeking inspiration... may I present, Cora, the last Sentinel.  Not as aesthetic as the portrait on the cover but with regards to my storyline, it does fit in well.  I have mostly left out the physical descriptions of my characters and the denizens of that universe. It's more fun this way right?

More to come...

P/S: The above was sourced from pinterest.

Looks very cool! I pre-ordered and am stoked to learn more about it! 

Friends and enemies of the Klingon Empire!

Now that the Nerdist contest is done and dusted, everyone else can now focus on reaching their secondary goal (1,000 pre-orders). However, firstly, I would like to congratulate the winners and the tremendous marketing and promotional efforts that they undertook to get their book into the proverbial hands of hundreds of followers. *hats off*.

So, I've done the math (yes, I did) and if all my 70 followers successfully pitched my book to a further 11 (was 10.71) readers, I would reach my e-book goal of 750! It's not quite achieving the print goal, but it's the next best thing. In the next couple of days, I will introduce some art work that I have collected over the past year while writing my book to whet your creative appetite. The timing was so that my updates might actually get a chance of reaching the presence of your mind, instead of being random noise in your inbox. Stay tuned.

Last, but far from being the least, I would like to thank all of you who have supported my creative endeavor! I hope that at the end of this journey, I would have in some way enriched your life with a good story.

As always, live long and prosper \V/,

Friends and enemies!

Just over an hour ago, we hit 50 pre-orders! I know it's still not even close to being in the top 20, but it's a milestone regardless especially since this time last year, I could not have dared to imagine that I could even accomplish this feat let alone entering a publishing competition.  But here we are, 100,000 words later.  

So, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who have done the good deed of supporting me.  Hopefully, this labor of love will eventually reach your doorstep, in full hi-def resolution and without too many grammatical or spelling errors!

Once again, thank you.

Yours sincerely,
Vincent \V/, LLAP

I thought I'd already pre-ordered your book! I must've gotten interrupted right in the middle of it. Thanks for pitching so I realized my mistake. :)

Ah... *sheepish grin* that one, I actually stole it as it was the quick and easy fix to my dilemma of not having an appealing cover.  I have tried getting permission from the author, but he or she appears to be incommunicado.  Obviously, I will have to source for another cover if and when the book goes to publish.

No, I haven't read that... but I will definitely check it out.

Thanks for your comment.  Hope you will enjoy reading the book as much as I did writing it.

Who made your cover! I'm really digging it. Sentinels protecting humans? Stories that are non-human-centric are the best kind of stories. Have you read Anne Leckie's "Ancillary Justice"?
