APRIL NEWSLETTER

April #CampNaNo Project

As you all know, I always participate in NaNo events! For the event in April I will be working on Symphony’s long-awaited sequel; Harmony. Harmony will be posted to Patreon and to Radish and Tapas eventually. Because of my contract with Tapas, it will have to go behind a paywall, sorry!

If you’re interested enough in Harmony, you can wait for its launch on Tapas and Radish in June/July, or you can subscribe to my Patreon for $1 and follow along as I write and post.

Open Novella Contest update

I made it through round one of the Open Novella Contest, and have just submitted my work for round two. I’m excited about where this story is going, and I can’t wait to finish it in May. If you have still not read Vampirism, there are now eight chapters waiting for you.

Goodreads

As I prepare to round up Urban Wolf and Vampirism, I felt it was a good time to remind you all that I have a good reads page with all my completed books listed. If you happen to be doing the reading challenge, that means you can count my books! Goodreads is also a great place to keep track of what you’re reading and planning to read.

It would mean a lot to me if you took some time out of your day to leave a review/rating on the stories you’ve read. They help new readers find them, and share in the joy!

YouTube UPDATE

Due to the Coronavirus situation, I haven’t posted videos to YouTube in a while, but I will be streaming once in a while. If you’re subscribed to the channel you get notified of when I plan to go live. We chat and talk, and keep each other company as we write, game or read.

Discord

The discord server is chugging along. If you’re on discord a lot already, consider adding my reader discord to your already long list.


That’s it for this month! Thank you so much for reading, and I can’t wait to share content with you in May!

MARCH NEWSLETTER

So, somewhere in the beginning of February I sustained a cut to my thumb that made writing painful, so I spent most of the month outlining, planning, and filming YouTube videos instead. The injury backtracked me a bit, but towards the end of the month it healed enough for me to start writing again.

This is going to be an information and update newsletter, because I have so much to share due to all the thinking I got to do!

OPEN NOVELLA CONTEST update

I’ve been enjoying writing my Open Novella Novel. I even went past the word count for the Month! I’ve sumbitted it for the first round of judging. Let’s hope I make it past the first round.

NEW BOOK RELEASE

MY TYPE OF SOCIALIZING

Adam is a Neet. He never leaves his apartment unless he absolutely has to. He holes himself up, only giving attention to his comics and cartoons. However, things change when a noisy party animal moves in next door and becomes a pest. Adam is given no other choice but to confront his neighbor.

A series of events pushes Adam outside his bubble and forces him to interact with others. And maybe, just maybe he thought his neighbor, Assad, was a bit good looking.

A new book joins my Patreon and Radish Fold. My Type of Socializing!

Radish (another reading site, link in description) is at chapter 4 (Chapter 3 already free on Radish). The link to my Radish profile is in my wattpad bio. Radish gives you 9 coins for joining and 6 coins for activating your email. That’s 15 coins, which are enough to read five chapters ahead. Radish also has weekly events where they give you 5 free coins for reading 10 chapters from stories on their front page.

Also, CHECK your emails. They give you free coins on holidays, for having an account for a month/year, on your birthday, etc.

WRITING STREAMS JOIN YOUTUBE

In Feburary I streamed on a week I wasn’t able to get a YouTube video up, and found out that I quite like it. I started and finished three chapters in that stream, and I feel that it makes me quite productive. If you would like to chat with me while you watch me try to meet my deadlines, subscribe to my YouTube channel!

new Covers

New month, new look. Fragments of His Being Now has a new cover over on Wattpad, and has a new cover on Tapas as well.

Inkitt and Quotev Update

If anyone has noticed my uploading to Inkitt and Quotev has been sporadic, but this March I will make an effort to be consistent and form a presence on those sites. I will be uploading Siberian Wolf to Quotev, and bouncing between books on Inkitt.

Book Order

Due to popular demand, I finally wrote a book order. You can check that out here, if you want to sort through my books to see which ones you’d like to read based on genre/age group or read in order.

ACTIVE ON INSTAGRAM

Once again, I’m active on Instagram. I’m enjoying it so far, and I hope it’ll stay this way for a bit. If you want to follow me and look at my hi jinks, feel free too. I also respond to messages on there a lot more faster than I used to.


I think that’s all for this month! See you in April.

Open Novella prompts will go live Feb 1st, and so will the summary and cover for Vampirism on Wattpad!

Symphony is getting a sequel

In January/December I started editing Symphony. I didn’t give a reason as to why I was doing so, and sadly I cant still say why I am, BUT I can share with you that there will be a sequel set in France! It’s called Harmony, and will follow Alejandro and Leo through their career.

There will be a few new characters, and you ill have snippets of old friends from Dansol!

Youtube update

We recently zoomed bast one hundred subscribers. A big thank you for everyone who’s subscribed so far!

I’m still getting used to filming and hearing myself talk, but I’m getting used to it, and soon I’ll be able to make longer more detailed videos. Right now, I’m going through the basics of writing to help answers I get asked a lot. In the list of videos I have to film are titles like “How I Outline My Novels” and “How To Describe Characters.”

If you’d like to join a community of writers learning and growing with each other, consider subscribing!

Patreon and Radish update

Hello! Since May-December has been finished on Radish and Patreon I will be working on two stories. My Type of Socializing (a speed write, like I did Aristocrat), and Above High Waters (To replace May-December.) The plan is to start working on My Type of Socializing extensively during February along side my ONC work Vampirism.

Urban Wolf will still get updates.It has about fifteen chapters left (probably less by the publication of this newsletter.)

Due to the new stories, and conclusion of old ones, the Patreon tiers have changed a bit, so feel free to check them out now. If you would like to binge read May-December and Aristocrat, feel free to do so on Radish Fiction.

DISCORD

Hello, so I’ve started interacting more on Discord. Discord is a platform where you can chat and discuss with multiple people. Think of it like a large Facebook group. If you’re intrested in reaching out to me, do join. I try to be online for at least an hour a day.

That’s it for this month! Thank you so much for reading, and I can’t wait to share content with you in February.

DECEMBER NEWSLETTER

Hello! November really did go by fast, and we’re finally on the last month of the year. Here’s some news concerning what I’m going to be getting up to in December.

NEW NOVEL: ARISTOCRAT

Being sent off to serve the Viscount of Barcombe for two years to pay a debt would have been devastating for most, but not for Manfred. 

Manfred had built an attachment to Lord Evenus years before his servitude to him by watching him from a distance. Getting to be by his side day in and day out felt like had won a prize. 

Lord Evenus is obviously kind, charming, smart and as Manfred learned over time; a man of many secrets. The two grow close over the course of many months, but Manfred remains curious about the Lord and his past. One question refused to stop plaguing him:

“What’s in the west wing?”

Aside from Fragments Of His Being, I wrote another novel on the side during NaNoWriMo. I bring to you, Aristocrat. Officially launching December 1st on Radish, Wattpad and Tapas. It will update weekly, although Radish will have all chapters available immediately if people want to pay for early access.

NOVEMBER NEWSLETTER

Excited to share the first of many news letters to come! Here, you’ll find a detailed breakdown of what I’m getting up to this November.

November NaNoWriMo project: Fragments of His Being [The Novel]

I’ve decided to finally work on the novel for my play, Fragments of His Being. I will start November 1st, and hopefully finish November 30th with thirty chapters.

THE PLAY

THE NOVEL

What I’m working on this month/update schedule.

I did a poll on Facebook asking what story you’d like to take Why I Love Him’s place in my update schedule. Metrosexual Much won, so I will start putting work into that.

Not part of my facebook group? Join Here.

My main projects for the Month of November are:

  • The Musician (Updates on Sunday.)
  • Urban Wolf (Updates on Thursday.)
  • Fragments of His Being (NaNoWriMo.)

Acceptance is getting adapted into comics for Tapas and Webtoons.

I’ve started working with an artist to create a web comic adaptation of my story Acceptace.

Andrew, a twenty-six-year-old literature graduate has been through more drama than many his age. From suffering obesity to arthritis, and then anorexia after drastic attempts to lose body fat, Andrew grows more conscious of his body. He shields himself from the rest of the world in a reserved cabin tucked away in a small town where he dwells in solitude and self-pity. But things can’t stay the same forever and Andrew’s carefully planned out walls fall around him with the arrival of his Uncle’s fiancee’s son Ethan.

Ethan will more than disrupt Andrew’s ‘perfect’ life. He’ll also teach him the sole act of acceptance.

READ ON:

If you don’t follow me on tapas consider doing so. Tapas is also a platform where you can tip me. There’s a tipping event this November (21st-24th) for thanksgiving.

Here are some sketches from the comic:

Formatting Like Sugar for paperback publication in December/January.

I’ve decided to start formatting Like Sugar for paperback publication in December/January. It will be a slow process I believe, so dates might change. I’m excited to share this with you all!

Working on starting on youtubE

I’m working with a good friend of mine KR Williams to start posting on YouTube. We plan to launch in December/January, and we’re working on videos to backlog. We’ll mostly talk about writing, books, media, comics, and social issues. I will personally mostly do comic reviews and writing advice.

Kr Williams writes dark fantasy novels featuring queer protagonists taking on the world. Do check out their work!

Radish and Patreon

I have both May-December and Urban Wolf on radish on their ‘freemium’ plan (Every week a new chapter becomes free.) May-December is available to all my patreons starting from $1 a month. Urban Wolf is also on Patreon starting from $1 a month too.

Supporting me in anyway gives me more time to write so consider doing so.

If you want to be ahead but can’t for whatever reason I’m giving away coupons for 3 chapters for both May-December and Urban Wolf if you review and rate three of my books on Goodreads. Message me on Wattpad, tapas, Facebook or Twitter with proof of your reviews and I will send you a coupon code for radish.
