E-book Fans Beware!

I have found The Rise of Heretics posted on a couple of websites without my permission. Worst off, they are advertising them as ‘free’, taking away what little profits I earn. But these freebie sites are not what they seem. They’re actually phishing sites looking for your personal information. They’re even targeting the authors with a page of what to send if there’s an ‘infringement’, asking for information that would allow them to steal intellectual property.

As of this moment The Rise of Heretics (not the revision) is available on Amazon ONLY. If you see it anywhere else, then it’s a SCAM.

Also, if you have an e-book for sale on Amazon or any other legitimate store, your book is likely listed on these phishing sites. DON’T PANIC. Just inform everyone you know that it’s a scam. There’s no proof they actually have the story unless you click on the download links, and by then it would be too late to realize that they’re trying to plant malware on your machine.

And while I’m on here, might as well do a status report. Book 1 of the new Heretics revision is a chapter away from completion. After that I need to wake up my betas and get the correcting done. Thanks for your patience!

Status Report

Hey everyone. I’m sorry to say that I’m not yet at 100% to posting and updating, but I did want to let everyone know I am still alive. On some months I had been busily working on costumes, so I could attend an anime convention. After that, I’ve picked at Rise of Heretics between odd bouts of depression. Not sure what’s going on with me, but if there is one thing I can promise, I’m not giving up on Fatesbane or Rise of Heretics.

I don’t remember if I have fully explained my intentions with the revision, but I’ll say it here one more time: I will be revising The Rise of Heretics and it will be posted here and on fictionpress as I go. The original version can still be purchased on Amazon, and when the revision is done, those who have purchased it will get a free download to get the new version.

I also decided to split the story into three books, so it will be a series. I’m currently at chapter 9 of predicted 10 or 11 chapters of book one, and my beta readers are still slowly going through the earlier chapters. I intend to post chapters 1 and 2 together for the debut, since they were originally chapter 1 of the original version. The rest will be weekly updates as soon as I finish with the revision of all of book 1.

Now, here is the ultimate plan when it’s all finished: All three books will be sold on Amazon and Barns and Noble’s Nook, and I am contemplating using lulu.com so people can request printed versions of the books. But the last thought will only happen if there are enough people demanding printed copies. I will set book 1 to be given away for free, but books 2 and 3 will have a price (I am only a substitute teacher- I don’t make much money, after all). As for those who already bought the book, yes, the free update will happen. What will happen is that ‘product’ that’s for sale now will become the ‘omnibus’ of all three books and I will raise the price to reflect that. So, if you buy the book now at its current price and can wait for the revision, you will get a discount on all three.😉

As for the Fatesbane series, I will slowly add to book 4, but I can safely say it’s on hiatus until the Heretics series is done. Some part of me wants to start a revision on book 1 of Fatesbane, but I’ll wait and see how everything is when I get there. I would imagine everyone would rather see book 4 over a cleaned up and improved book 1.

Finally, I’m sure some people are wondering how well this revision is going. What changes will there be? Is it worth waiting for? Well, as you can see, there is a sample of the original first chapter posted on here. For now, and on this site only, I will release revised chapters 1 and 2 for your reading pleasure. Go compare the difference for yourself- and if you also would like to take the time to comment on your feelings of the revision differences, that would be great.

Just head on over to ‘The Rise of Heretics Series’ tab on the menu. It’s not a lot, but I hope this little bit makes up for the silence.

And then unexpectedly…

Alright, the last Fatesbane Request is finally up after a long and unexpected silence. This one was a request made by a reader over on fictionpress who asked me to make a short story about Tia’s pregnancy. I made a few short stories on some interesting moments. I also have one short scene after the baby is born, but I will not reveal the sex of the baby. I would rather have the reader choose so that everyone is happy.

Now that that is done, anyone can make requests in the comment area (preferably on the Requests page). I just can’t guarantee writing them out immediately. I’m going to get started on The Rise of Heretics revision, so what little free time I have will be devoted to that. I might pick up the requests eventually though.

So yeah, The Rise of Heretics is next up, and since I’m starting later than anticipated, Fatesbane: Full Circle will be held back as well.

Also, I’m not sure if anyone was waiting on this, but I finished the AlNel drawing I was working on: Bloody Waltz

December Sloth

Request 3 has been added to the Requests page. This one is from a challenge prompt with some requirements I had to modify to fit the world. I decided to showcase Pappy and his father/son-in-law relationship with Satel.

I feel like I’m slowing down again. I know it must be finals time for all college students, so I’ll probably be waiting a little longer on beta work. I’m still hoping to get the revision of The Rise of Heretics up in this month, but I still have one more request to post.

I’m also working on a new Albel and Nel drawing, since I kind of do that annually. It’s a remake of the old ‘Deadly Waltz‘ I made a few years back. I look at it and think ‘the colors and lighting are awesome, but I could do better with the proportions and how they’re positioned.’ So that’s what I’ll do. I seem to have better luck with fanart than I do with original art. I have a lot of Fatesbane and Heretics drawings that I need to redo.

Requests

Requests one and two are up. Just look at the Fatesbane Requests page and it will lead you there. The first one is an adult story involving Tia and Satel in their early years where Satel steals her clothes. The second has Tia and Satel discussing possible names for their future baby. Two down, two more to go. Enjoy

Here at Last

After a long and unplanned silence, I would like to present the final chapter of Lords. Though the final chapter had been sitting in beta limbo, I have been keeping busy between work with the requests and I’m almost done with them. You might notice that ‘Fatesbane: Lols of the Sea’ had been replaced with ‘Fatesbane Requests’ and the first chapter of which is an improved version of the old ‘April Fool’ story where it now conforms to the timeline it’s supposed to be set at, thus making it more ‘canon’ than it was before. …And the story just so happens to fit in with the theme of the requests I’ve been getting, namely the ‘baby requests’.

I hope to get the first and second requests out soon, and get started posting the new and improved Rise of Heretics by December. And if I keep schedule reasonably enough, I could get started on the fourth book as early as March or as late as May.

Almost There

The final interlude of Lords is up and there will be one more chapter before book 3 is done.

Also I’ve received four requests and I’ll be working on them between my sub jobs. No more requests for now, but once I get the last one done, I’ll listen to more, but I can’t guarantee having the time to take them on. Sooner or later I’ll have to get back to the Heretics revision or book 4.

And finally, I have a sketch of Satel’s latest outfit done, and it’s by far my best sketch of him. One side is him playing with his water magicks and the other depicts him and Tia in a cute scene that will happen in the last chapter. Here it is: Sea Lord. Enjoy.🙂

Subbin’

Chapter 26 of Lords is up and there is still two more chapters left before the story is over. I have the title of book 4 decided. It will be called Fatesbane: Full Circle and it will take place roughly six years after book 3. But once Lords is done (and after I tackle the requests) I will be revising The Rise of Heretics. Since everything is written, it shouldn’t take as long to revise as it would to write the book, so I estimate starting Full Circle around spring of next year.

Now I do have some news to add. I’ve become a substitute teacher at my local elementary school, so I won’t have as much free time as I used to. I might be working as little as three days a week, so I will still have time for writing. I just won’t be able to keep up a weekly schedule anymore. But it WILL get done.🙂

Bummed…

Chapter 25 of Lords is up and I have the sketch for Tia’s latest costume up here: Elati’s Wrath.

I don’t have much to say right now because I’m a little down. My cat was found paralyzed down her back so I had her put down. I’m still getting trying to figure out how she even got injured and I’m still a little hurt that I had to make that choice.

The only thing I can say right now is if you have any requests, don’t be afraid to mention them. I’ll be back to normal by next week.

On a Journey

Well, not really. I’m on the last fishing trip of the summer before I start part time work as a substitute teacher. But even though I currently have a very crappy Internet connection, I can still try to upload Lords 24. So here it is, and it better be showing on the menu, since I had to wait 20 minutes for the page to load.

Anyway, still taking requests, please see last weeks post for more information. I forgot to add in the last post that I will also not entertain any vampire/high school adaptations of Fatesbane. For one, who needs vampires when falucite are way cooler (and sexier)? And second, poor little dyslexic Tia would be more homicidal than a hormone driven Satel if she were sent to school.😄

I am drawing a sketch of the latest Tia costume and one of Satel’s new outfit. Hopefully one of them will be ready by the posting of the next chapter.
