Strife Is Live!

You can find it here.

The cover might get some tweaking in time but that’s it for now. I hope you all enjoy it.

Paperbacks for all books should become available within weeks..

Stay awesome.

Fan Art

Nothing new to report on Strife. The whole process is still ongoing. Nothing I can do to speed it up.

On a more positive note, the amazing SadicStar has graced me with two lovely pieces of Chastity fan art.

I love these. Wish there were more.

A picture is worth a thousand words. A good one is worth more. So let’s say this is a 2000+ word post and call it a day.

Stay awesome.

Late June Update

Strife is almost fully edited, but the cover is still not done.

I am nevertheless confident that I will make the July 14th release. The only complication the cover thing might produce is me being a few weeks late with paperbacks. We’ll see.

Azure Flame part 2 is done and I am progressing through Azure Flame part 3. Non-linear stories are not exactly easy to write, but they are quite fun. For now, I like the way it’s turning out. When I finish that, I will proceed to the final Nameless book, and then (somewhere around the end of the year) I will make a fourth (and also probably final) Azure Flame installment.

As for other stuff, my mind is overflowing with ideas. I write them all down without exception. When these two projects/series are done, I will have a whole lot of raw material to work with. I am very, very excited about a lot of these.

This summer will be a nice one.

Stay awesome.

Witty Title #573

Just chiming in to let everyone know I’m still alive. Strife is still being worked on, and I’m kind of too caught up in the physical world to work faster on the next Azure Flame. I will fix that ASAP.

June will be an Azure Flame month for me, and I will try to finish not one but TWO installments before July. After that, it’s back to the Nameless Chronicle for me.

Other than that, there isn’t much to tell. Things are rolling forward, and that’s nice.

Stay awesome.

May ’17. Status Report

Hey, all. Thought I’d step out of the cave and share what’s new.

First off (and most importantly), Strife is still being edited. The cover is progressing along nicely as well. Seems like an early July release is most probable.

Second, I have mostly plotted out the next book. For now it is called Bedlam, and will likely conclude the series. At least in this form. Weren’t there supposed to be six or seven books? you ask, and the question is valid. I did plan for the story to span more books… back when I wrote an 87 page novella. The sequels to Risen were supposed to be be incrementally longer, but instead I started writing full-length novels. Characters and plotlines planned for further down the road have appeared much earlier, and a choice needed to be made:  stretch the story out, or write less books but with more content. For me, the answer was clear.

Third, the first draft of the next Azure Flame thing is nearing completion. For now I plan on making four of these interactive books. Each will have a different approach, structure, and theme. For instance, while the first one was essentially a mystery, the second will be more action-packed and interactive. Because it will be less linear, a single playthrough is likely to be shorter. The third one will be something else entirely, but more on that later.

Fourth, I am making paperbacks as promised. Unless Createspace keeps messing up color-matching on covers, you can expect physical copies for all my books within a week or so of the Strife release.

That’s it. Back to the cave.

Strife First Draft – Done!

As the title says, the initial draft of Strife is complete. For now, it stands at about 114k words. I will soon start re-reading it, and after that is done, the editing process can fully commence.

I had hoped to have the whole work done and published by early June, but some scheduling conflicts have made it far more likely to be released during early July. We’ll see.

While Strife is being edited, I will start working on the sequel to Azure Flame: Dawn. So there’s plenty of stuff for me to do. Hopefully it’ll end up being worth it.

Stay awesome.
