I’m taking part in the open novella contest over at wattpad. Between January-April I will be tasked with writing a 20,000 word novella. I’m entering with a concept I’ve been wanting to explore for a while now: Vampirism. I have ideas, but I will have to wait for the prompts to build a solid outline. I can’t wait to share this story with you all when I can! Look out for the novel on Wattpad sometime in January.
UPDATE SCHEDULE FOR JANUARY
Urban Wolf: Thursday.
Vampirism: Matching the Open Novella word count deadlines.
I’ve been put to task to edit my novel Symphony. If you want an easier and smoother read, consider reading (or rereading) Symphony now.
ACCEPTANCE COMIC UPDATE
All the pages of the first part have been made and are currently being drawn in and colored. I hoped that we would have this launched by Christmas, but things happen, and the comic artist had to take a break. So for now, no more guesses for release. I’ll just keep you updated on the project until it’s eventual release!
In the mean time you can binge the novels were:
CONNECT WITH ME
It’s finally, January, and the promise to myself to better connect with my readers will start with my Discord and Facebook groups. I plan to be more active, and to coordinate more events for my readers.
Kr and I had a successful channel launch in December. I slacked a bit in December because our Editor needed time off, and I had to spend time with family for the holidays! But I’m going to mass record videos in January, and hopefully we’ll be able to get on a steady update schedule.
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.
As always readers on Patreon are ahead—they’ve had Aristocrat since November 1st! If you want access to content weeks/months before they’re released, consider supporting me on Patreon.
My good friend KR Williams will be hosting a spooky Christmas anthology on tapas. I’ve sent off my story The River is Mocking Me that focuses on two art enthusiast sweethearts. You can subscribe to the anthology so you’ll be notified when it comes out comes out near Christmas.
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.
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.
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.
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.
