Daily releases?

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.


Anyway, There was another release =D Go check it out.

I’m Not Dead Yet!

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.

Anyway, go ahead and check it out; starting here!

Thanks for your patience guys, and thank you all for your support of Merchant of Tiqpa 2!!

Apologies + Book Release

Hey people,
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.

You can get the book here: https://www.amazon.com/Merchant-Tiqpa-Bathrobe-Knights-Sequel-ebook/dp/B01MTQWKMJ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480635652&sr=8-1&keywords=Merchant+of+Tiqpa
if you are impatient, and we’ll be loading things up and starting Book 2’s releases hopefully before Christmas.

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.

The Eighth Rune is on AMAZON!

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.

Ps. Did you like the cover? =D

The Name + April Fools

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?

Anyway, I hope you’re still enjoying the story!

The Author’s Idea for a Name

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.


Did you guys think we’d never make a post? Okay, so here’s the update.You all will still be getting daily releases from the new series (I’m talking to one of the editors about possibly doing a large dump of chapter 1 just to get it moving), but we’re also working on a TBK 4

We’d like some weigh in on that. What are you all looking for from the new series? If we did new MC instead of Darwin, would that be too upsetting?

Ahead of Schedule

So, I’ve just updated the “New Projects” section, but I’m not seeing love =(

How about this, we may release a bonus section (250 to 500 extra words) on Sunday if we can get active discussions going on the new work. I know it’s too early to start, but I’m looking forward to it. See you guys more in the future!

[Ps. Let me know how the anchor tags work. You can check by the end of each day, Midnight EST, to see a day’s post. Some will come early, some will come late. They will all make it.]

Great News!

We’re starting the new book rollout, and picking back up some of the old book rollouts. Expect at least a 500 word a day for the next 365 days upload.

If demand exists, we’ll start working towards doing a Patreon system that will let people opt out of the wait/ amazon book buying craze to read the latest up to date versions of our works no the site itself. [Maybe a, for 1k a month we’ll do 750 words/ daily, for 2k a month we’ll do 1k words daily, cetera bonus too. We’ll have to see.] {Ps. Note, this 500 words may come late every once in a while, but that isn’t because the material isn’t there. It’s simply because my internet hasn’t been reliable at all lately. Please forgive if it’s down when I’m trying to do an update, you’ll just get them slammed in on the next day. That said, it’s good today! So let’s go for it!}

Anyways, thanks for keeping up to date (the new posts will be in by midnight each night).

Also, I’ve been playing around with “non comment” ways for chatting. Would you guys want to see a discord/ chatango?

Welcome to the new site!

So, we’ve been talking about it for months, years? I know it hasn’t been years since we haven’t even had the site up for over a year, but we have been talking about updating the site and making it proper for a while. With TBK 3 coming to a close (only editing/ book cover generating and one final epilogue to be done), we decided to finally bite the bullet and get a proper site. The reason we went with Deannovels.com instead of something more bathroby or spoonish is that I plan to write books one day outside of the Tiqpa world. Tiqpa has been fun, don’t get me wrong, but I want to explore new ideas and worlds with you, worlds you will all hopefully have a part in helping me brainstorm (your feedback has always been a huge part of the Tiqpa writing experience).

So, to start this off right (with lots of user feedback), go ahead and let me know how I can better improve this site and make it easier to use. Thanks again for always being great readers!


Ps. AnonTBK is still around, but don’t call him over. I want to take a break from work eventually.
