Uh… The Isle of Donne Needs more Preparation…

Posted in Updates on July 8, 2019 by chemiclord
I’m afraid to say, for the first time, that due to some unforeseen circumstances, The Isle of Donne is going to have to be delayed. I’ll keep you all updated when I have another date prepared.
My apologies.

Prepare for the Isle of Donne

Posted in Updates on June 19, 2019 by chemiclord

It’s definitely been longer than I wanted, and no doubt longer than anyone wanted to wait… but that wait is mercifully almost over.

The sixth and final installment of the MegaTokyo: Endgames series, The Isle of Donne, will release July 12th, 2019.  So, start stashing away those pennies!

Thank you all again for your patience.

Back to Transcendent

Posted in Updates with tags on May 29, 2019 by chemiclord

To anyone who knows me personally, this probably isn’t a surprise in the slightest.  With my work on MegaTokyo:Endgames wrapping up (I’ll have a release date for Isle of Donne soon, I promise), I’m back to work on a concept that has been burning in the back of my mind for the last year.

(To the four people who wanted me to go back to my “Gate” series… sorry.)

But I’m approaching Transcendent a little differently than just writing a novel.  The release structure for this series will be almost like the serials of the past (and kinda like seasons of TV shows now).

The goal is that once the series gets spinning, that I’ll release 20-30 page “episodes” that you’ll be able to buy through Amazon Kindle e-books, and after a 10-12 page “season” they’ll be compiled in book form that you’ll be able to buy for all you dead tree collectors.  I feel it will lower the bar of entry (which is what kills a lot of “new” writers), while at the same time keeping the larger novels for those who want them on their bookshelves.

And yes… these will be Kindle exclusives.  It’s admittedly a mercenary decision, as my sales from Amazon lapped Barnes and Noble and Kobo combined several times over.  For the price points I’m going to be selling these at… I’m going to need the higher cut that comes from giving the Kindle exclusive publishing.

Which brings us to price.  The plan initially is that each episode will run for $1 ($0.99 technically), and the accumulated seasons will be in the $12-$15 range.  I’m trying to keep prices down, folks.  I know it’s really hard to have much money to spend, after all.  I wish I could do better.

Anyway, I’ll keep updating as I get closer.  Still really early in development at this point, but I understand that radio silence is one of the worst things to have as a nobody writer.  Thanks for keeping in touch!

A Little Housecleaning

Posted in Updates on April 10, 2017 by chemiclord

Hey there, folks!  As you may have noticed, I’ve revamped the site a little bit in preparation for the launch of The Great Underground Empire.  The goal is that the front page won’t become completely overrun by the books as the library expands.

And no, I don’t particularly care if that would be a good thing.  You’re gonna see my grousings and grumblings.  Got it?

Prepare to Enter The Great Underground Empire…

It’s taken a while, to be sure.  Day jobs, editing, coordinating artwork… it’s all slowed down the process.  But the light at the end of the tunnel nears.

Book 5 of the MegaToyko: Endgames series, The Great Underground Empire, is currently slated for release on April 14th, 2017.  Kobo readers will also finally join in the fun of release, as it will launch right along with Kindle, Nook, and paperback editions.

Thank you all for your patience, and hopefully it won’t take quite as long to begin the trip to The Isle of Donne.

Coming Soon to Kobo!

Posted in Grumblings, Updates on January 22, 2017 by chemiclord

Just a quick FYI, I am in the process of adapting my library of works to be compatible with Kobo e-readers.  Within a couple days, you all should see the fruit of those labors as the four books in the MegaTokyo:Endgames series will appear in the Kobo Store.  I’ll update my links as well as provide those links in the blog space once that happens.

Thanks for the support!

More Transcendent Teasers!

Here’s a little something-something about our heroine for you all to mull over as you await Transcendent‘s release in November.

Yes, there actually is stuff written under all that black. It will be revealed as it becomes pertinent within the story upon release, so make sure you drop in every month or so, because I might reveal clues there before they are revealed in story!
