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…

Posted in Updates on March 24, 2017 by chemiclord

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!

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!

Introducing “Transcendent”…

Posted in Updates with tags , on September 4, 2016 by chemiclord

About a week and a half ago, Fred Gallagher showed me a free sketch he had made, specifically as an “iterative development” thing for me to form a story around.

It worked… very well.

So well, that by Youmacon (Nov. 3-6 in Detroit, Michigan) we should have the first “episode” of that story, titled Transcendent, ready for convention goers to look at.  At about that same time, that episode should launch on Kindle and Nook readers.

If anyone remembers the Megatokyo: Endgames short story “Behind the Masque”, that’s the sort of length, format, and pricing we’re looking at; a whopping $0.99 for each episode.  Then, as enough content is released (hopefully one episode a month), those episodes will be compiled into “seasons” and the volumes released in print for those of you who like them dead trees.

But in the meantime, whet your whistle on this short teaser of the first episode of  Transcendent.

On Going Back…

Just a minor update to report.

People who own the ebook versions of Dire Water and the Tower of Kartage might want to consider updating their copies.  There’s no content changes or anything, but the ebooks have been updated to function similar to the latter two the series with properly functional Table of Content links.

I hope you’ll like the alterations.  Going through old manuscripts and manually fixing the formatting issues that allowed me to submit my own compiled mobi and epub files was rather time consuming.

And Now There Were Four…

And at last, Book 4: The Daynish Campaign, is here.

This particular book came together during some pretty rough moments of personal drama, which didn’t help the pressure I put on myself to get it just right, and what contributed heavily to why it dropped a month later than my general goal of two books a year. The desire to get it just right is especially important to me because now we finally are going to start getting into the meat of the Endgames story.

While Tower of Kartage kinda set the mechanics of how the world works, and Dire Water and Fire Fox kinda gave us a bird’s eye view of the world itself and the events that take place, now we’re finally going to see a more ground level perspective, specifically of the adventuring days of Pirogoeth’s life that up until now had only been hinted at. This is really digging into actual canon events of the entire MT world, and I won’t deny being absolutely petrified at times that I will not present it in a quality fashion.

Anyway, enough of my rambling. I hope you enjoy it, and are ready to dig in further while I get Book 5, The Great Underground Empire, ready!
