There have been some real life hiccups, so we’re behind Schedule but we’ll be unloading as fast as the editor’s can get the material out. We will catch up to the 2k a day 5 days a week quota in no time, but in the mean time, enjoy chapter 4. Also, chapter 3 is finished.
AnonTBK himself went above and beyond to make sure Chapter 4 was done in one night.
Note: Chapter 3 is being extended, a LOT. Wait 5 minutes and check again if there isn’t an extension made in june to fill in the 2nd half of chapter 3.
Note 2: We’re having some issues with word-press not wanting to update the anchors into chapter 3. Where you guys left off was at ( “Yeah, sounds good,” Lee agreed. ) <– you can ctrl f this.
What? Did that happen? Okay, so it won’t happen on Sundays, but it hopefully will happen every Monday Through Saturday. You can also thank AnonTBK and Swayne the Brain for their awesome work editing to make sure that I have the liberty to drop some words down.
They’ve been a wonderful help. So has Clifford, who has dedicated himself to staying awake late at night to keep this insane writer active and from making incredibly silly/ stupid mistakes.
So, haven’t tooled out the “Next segment” buttons, and just dropping it for copyright honestly, but I wanted you guys to know: I’m not dead yet. After the release of Merchant of Tiqpa 2, we’re hard at work on 2 series. This is one I started writing (and will start unloading so it gets its “Free to read” moment for all of us poor people. Even if it is the unedited version.
Sorry we haven’t had updates recently. I’d like to say right away, the #1 reason we didn’t publish as many new updates is that for the longest period, like almost all of September, we were ripping apart chapter 1/ 2 and decided what we wanted to do with them.
We wanted the book to feel a lot cleaner, but we also didn’t want to cut the book. Then for a better part of October and November, we were securing cover, and then trying to make sure our wonderful editor, could actually have a place to live.
Now that he’s settled we should be able to begin again with updates, and I want to apologize again for the delay.
Please forgive my failure to update *bows head* I’m terrible with the site. The editor thought I was keeping up to date with it while he didn’t have internet, and I thought he was doing it from his phone because he knew I couldn’t handle site management =/ the failures of miscommunication.
There are three main differences between the book online and the web version.
1. The pre-chapter posts. Not very long, just a paragraph or two before each chapter written from the perspective of Edgard’s Mother. They help shape the frame of the story and give context to the story that might be missed due to the bias point of view that the story is told from (Edgard doesn’t know everything, and can’t reason out who is / isn’t lying about what, as those who have made it through several chapters already know.)
2. Higher quality editing. We often spend a week or two re-editing each chapter, fixing up small details, cetera so that the book on Kindle will feel like a better quality product than the one
3. The Author’s eternal gratitude. Seriously, while I do love bringing a product to the table that I hope most people enjoy, I often must lament that bills are a very strong motive for me posting on Amazon. =P Thank you greatly in advance if you purchase or just thanks in general.
So, we put the name up, and I hope you guys like it. Thanks for your constant support. By the way, I didn’t get a single April Fools joke pulled on me this year! It really made me sad =*( I love April Fools jokes. Could you guys share some of the best pranks you’ve been a part of (have done/had done to you)?
For those who don’t read from within the US, is April Fools a common thing where you’re from? I wonder, which countries make a big deal of it? And which countries ignore it altogether?
So, I’m going to start off by saying that I actually loved a lot of the suggestions for book names. Many of them felt cool, some funny, some awesome. The problem is, I’m looking for something that, when I say it, it just “feels” right. Ya know? I don’t know if you know what that is like. A name that, when you tell someone, they say, “I want to pick up that book and look at the back just because.”
So, with that in mind, I was thinking of: The Eighth Rune.
How does that sound for a name? Any thoughts?
Ps. Don’t tell the editor I’m posting on the main site, he gets finicky when I make posts =D.
