Big changes for the New Year!

I’m happy to announce that this weekend of 12/29/18 I’m going to be changing the reward tiers for my聽Patreon聽while also planning on adding a new one in the upcoming month. What does this mean? I’m lowering prices on ALL reward tiers and will be adding a new Premium Supporter tier soon. However Patreon doesn’t make it the easiest thing to do, so I’m sending this notice out to all current and potential subscribers so you’re aware of the changes.

First, all current reward tiers are going to be DELETED, because Patreon doesn’t allow you to change the pricing on an active tier (makes sense really). I’m going to be deleting the tiers and setting up new ones within the next 24 hours. This means that all current memberships will be removed in the process (Sorry!). However I do hope you’ll resubscribe with the new reward memberships when they’re up, I’m not trying to be a bastard by deleting your pledges like this. I will have a listing of the new rewards below so everyone knows what’s going to be available.

Second, the new Premium Supporter tier will be made available in the upcoming month after I’m finished with my two current book projects. I look forward to making that available, until then I’ll post details about it below.

Third, I hope everyone has a happy New Year and I look forward to seeing what 2019 brings us 馃檪 As always, thank you for your support.

The new rewards tiers will be setup as such:

Discord Server Expansion

To better reach out and help the community grow, I’m going to be adding and changing some features in my Discord Server. First, I will be adding public channels in addition to the Patron Hangout that is offered for Patreon subscribers. What does this mean? I’m going to be adding public channels for all my literary works for readers and fans to gather and discuss any number of topics with each other. There will still be Patron specific channels for supporting members along with specialized roles they will be assigned, and this new addition of more channels for the public will help the community expand and grow into something more in the future. Current channels on the server are for:

  • Patron Hangout (Patreon subscribers only)
  • Chronicles of Eden Chatroom
  • Demons of Aether Chatroom
  • Nightworld Chatroom
  • Rosario Vampire: Brightest Darkness Chatroom

I’ll be setting up Voice Chats for both Patron and Non-Patron members as well. This also opens up another announcement I need to make: I’m looking to enlist the help of loyal readers for help moderating the server. Moderator status isn’t for Patrons only, anyone can sign up to help keep the server running smoothly. If you’re interested in joining the team please feel free to contact me by either email, DM, Private Message, etc. Those who have shown support and noticeable contributions in the past in any form will be given preferential choice for this. As soon as I have a sturdy team of mods I will start sending out invite links to those who wish to access the server. If that’s you then again send an email, DM, PM, etc to let me know you’re interested.

Thank you for listening and I hope to hear from you soon!

Massive Book Sale Coming Soon!

With the winter holiday fast approaching it’s that time of the year again for amazing sales, and I’ve got a whopper planned for readers this year. An announcement will be posted very soon with more details when its almost ready, until then here’s some info to tease everyone with.

All of the digital versions of Chronicles of Eden books聽except the first one will be going on sale this month. This is due to restrictions on how many sales I’m able to do with the books on Amazon, and the first book already had a sale recently. Books 2 through 12 however will be聽massively聽discounted for the event, making this the biggest and most cost-saving sale I’ve ever held for the entire series all at once.

For readers who haven’t tried the series out yet, the first book is currently having a free giveaway until 12/9/18. Enter now for a free chance to win at this link. You may not be able to get the book for a heavy discount during the sale, but you could get it for free before the sale starts!

This is the last sale of the year and I’m hoping to make it the biggest and best yet. I humbly ask everyone who reads this to share this announcement with all they can. Post it on Facebook, retweet it on Twitter, shout it out to the whole world to spread awareness of this holiday special that’s fast approaching. For those who haven’t jumped into the world of Eden yet, I encourage them to give the first book a try before the sale starts, because if you like what you read you’re going to score on incredible savings with the rest of the series being offered for a heavy discount shortly afterwards.

With the latest entry in the series being finished up and a lovely art book readying for release, this is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to get caught up on the epic saga of Chronicles of Eden, both for new and current readers alike. Stay tuned for updates on the sale at the end of the week, and as always thank you to everyone who buys, reads, and reviews the books on Amazon. I couldn’t be doing this today without all of your support.

What Patreon Rewards Would You Want?

As many already know I’m starting to grow my Patreon to help support my life decision of becoming a full time writer. As much as I love writing for a living I have to pay bills to keep living under a roof and pay many artists to help bring my stories to life. On my Patreon I currently have different rewards set up for each level of supporter, but I’m interested to know what people think of the selection. Are there rewards I should offer instead? Are there current ones that you think aren’t needed or not desirable? I’m open to experimenting with different rewards for patrons to help this thrive, I just need a little guidance on what everyone would like.

If you could spare a moment to check out my Patreon and let me know, either here, via email, on any of my social media, a brick through my window with a note tied to it (please don’t choose that last one), what do you think would work best for the rewards offered to paying patrons? All feedback is appreciated. Link to my Patreon is below.

Finishing the year with a bang!

With only two months left in the year I’m going to be pushing myself to bring everyone even more content for聽all聽my stories. What do I mean by that? Check out these highlights:

Chronicles of Eden:

Two more Chronicles of Eden books are planned for release this year still! That’s right, you won’t have to wait long for more of the sexy monstergirl saga to be available. The Chronicles of Eden – Season 1 Artbook and Chronicles of Eden: Season II – Act I will be available on Amazon only and will also offer full colored paperback editions for the first time in the series. This winter is going to heat up with these two additions, so get ready for a whole lot more of Eden to sink your teeth into.

Not only that but during this upcoming Monday and Tuesday,聽Chronicles of Eden – Act I: Second Edition聽will be available for the low price of $0.99! 48 hours with a +70% discount on the digital version of the first book in this monstergirl series! If you or anyone you know hasn’t jumped into the world of Eden yet but would like to, this would be the chance you’ve waited for 馃檪

New Book Series’ Coming Out:

With the release of the first聽Demons of Aether聽book comes the start of a brand new series for readers to enjoy. And not just that one, as another new series is getting ready to make it’s debut on Amazon this year. More details coming soon, but if a sci-fi/dystopian story with a mix of action and adventure spiced with a heated love triangle among the heroes sounds like something you’d enjoy, then this series is just for you. Both this series and Demons of Aether will be continued going into the upcoming year and will steadily grow alongside their big sister, Chronicles of Eden. Whether you love fantasy, action, urban, sci-fi, drama, or all of the above, I’ve got you covered 馃槈

Rosario Vampire: Brightest Darkness:

Fans of the series have stepped up to help out with the remastering and updating of this gigantic fanfiction, and I couldn’t be more grateful. If you wish to help as well then please contact me. And for those anxiously awaiting the continuation of this story, I’ll be sure to keep you updated on the progress of the revision and when it will once again start up. Thank you so much for being patient for so long. I promise it’ll be worth the wait.

Growing My Community:

I’m currently using my聽blog, DeviantArt,聽Twitter,聽Facebook,聽Pixiv,聽FanFiction.net聽and聽Goodreads聽for my announcements and presence on the internet. I also maintain the聽Chronicles of Eden Wiki聽website as well as my聽Patreon Support聽page. And to top it off I’m readying a private Discord server for readers and fans to enjoy. But if I’m to continue with my writing career and bring more stories to life for readers everywhere, as well as eat everyday, I need to grow and expand my digital footprints. But I can’t do it alone, I’m only one man after all. I do my best to update my blogs and websites with news, fresh content, and updates as often as I can. And I try to update and manage the Wiki site as well as post on Patreon frequently for patron supporters. I want to build my fanbase, reach new readers, and bring joy and entertainment to even more people than ever before. And to accomplish that I’m asking my readers and fans to offer a hand if at all possible. Any and all help is greatly appreciated and allows me to keep doing this for a living (and I聽really聽want to do just that). That being said, I’m going to run the familiar, cliched, and tired-but-true line many content creators do.

Please help me out if you can! Follow my blogs. Like, share, retweet, and subscribe. Tell your friends about my books. Join the Wiki community with the discussions or page updates. Become a Patreon supporter. Leave a review on the聽Amazon store pages聽for any of my books. Anything to lend a hand with this difficult but still desirable job of mine that is writing.

With that I’m back to work with the writing grind. Thank you everyone for reading and helping me get this far with my passion, if it wasn’t for all of you I probably wouldn’t be here doing any of this today.

Winter Projects

Let me just say that being a full-time writer certainly has its hurdles to overcome. One of which is having so many stories and projects to keep me busy all the time. To give some perspective of my work queue so far, here’s a rundown of upcoming releases, books, and writing projects I’m currently working on.

First is, of course, the next Chronicles of Eden book. Or rather聽two. This winter I’m going to be releasing a Chronicles of Eden – Season 1 Artbook, a paperback-only tome filled with all the character art of the first 12 books in the series along with plenty of extras. Every character will have biographies listed for them straight from the series wiki site. Additional artwork will be included, such as early concept art and how the art style evolved from the first book all the way to where the series is now. And for the first time, artwork of previously skipped characters will be included. Queen Victoria, Florence, even Alyssa and Triska’s mothers; every named character will be included in the book in full vivid color. This is without a doubt a must-have for every Chronicles of Eden fan out there.

Next is the continuation of Chronicles of Eden with its next book. No, not Act XIII. Need to keep things simple while at the same time showing progression of the series, after all nobody wants to try to figure out what Act XVIII is at first glance. The next book in the series will don the title Chronicles of Eden: Season II – Act I. This is to show both that a new, fresh story arc is about to take place, and also keep the Roman numerals from going crazy as the series grows. When is this going to be released I already hear many of you asking? It’s already being worked on, so ASAP is all I can reliably say for now.

And that’s not the only book readying for release. Demons of Aether – Wings of Steel is almost ready for publication, with the first book in this series that I have聽really聽missed working on now having a refined manuscript along with new artwork for all the characters included. The last edition of Wings of Steel was, sadly, rushed to publication, having numerous spelling errors and no artwork except the cover included with the book. Now both ebook and paperback formats will be available with the new edition to give this series the proper start it deserves. Release date is very close, stay tuned for updates.

Now for the part of this update that some of you probably skipped over to. Rosario Vampire: Brightest Darkness.聽When? That’s what many have been asking me for the longest time now. My original goal was to get the massive story and its side-story edited, republished, and continued to completion this year. How did that go for me? Terrible. What time I did find to focus on the story didn’t net any positive results. My mind was just not able to properly focus on the different story, characters, and dynamics that had been established to keep them running the same way. The “revised” chapters I did do for the story turned out to be less than stellar in my honest opinion, and not nearly good enough to post online for readers to see. The truth is I currently don’t have the time or energy to properly get the job done, not without really dedicating more time to the series that I just don’t have right now. So what does this mean for the story? Simple.

It’s time for me to get help. No, not mental help, I’m fine in that regard. I mean bringing on editors and writers to help me get this fanfiction rolling properly. Those who can help with polishing the current chapters of the story. Maybe even help outline first drafts and structure for following chapters to help speed up the writing. Or if they’re so in sync with how I want the story to go they may even be able to write the full chapters themselves if they wanted to, as long as the story goes the way I intended it to go I don’t mind who does the typing. Essentially, RV: BD has grown too big for me to handle alone along with my current workload of books to write. So for that I’m offering any who want to write for the series a chance to help out if they wish to. If you or anyone you know wants to help RV: BD and its sister-story continue at a faster pace than what I can currently do for it, please let me know. Email, DA Note, Twitter DM, however you want to get in contact. I ask that anyone who wants to help with the editing or writing for the story, please send references to your writing ability so I know if this is something you can reliably handle or not. I’ve already been getting requests since I hinted about this a while ago, but I’m not putting a limit to how many people can help out, so if you want to join the writing crew then by all means send a message my way. RV: BD is pretty damn huge, so the more help I can find the better.

So that’s my current list of things going on. There are a few other smaller projects here and there, but these here are the main attractions right now. The Chronicles of Eden wiki site is still growing, and if things pick up for RV: BD perhaps another wiki site may start to bloom as well. For now, I’m heading back to the writing grind. Plenty to work on, plenty to keep busy with, and plenty to look forward to. As always, thank you everyone for your continued support, I shall do my best not to let any of you down.

More coming soon. Much more…

With the latest entry of the Chronicles of Eden series now published on Amazon, it’s time for me to get ready for what’s next. Yes, of course that includes more Chronicles of Eden books, that series is far from finished. But it’s not the only one I want to write and show the world, not by a longshot. I’ll be posting more announcements when I have additional details, however for now here is a list of things I’m working on to show what I’m planning next:

  • Outlining the first draft for the next Chronicles of Eden book
  • Preparing the third boxed set for Chronicles of Eden
  • Working with a translator for the first Chronicles of Eden book
  • Publishing a second edition of Demons of Aether
  • Continuing the Demons of Aether series
Also need to look into:
  • Recruiting editors and draft writers for my fanfiction stories
  • Recruiting editors and moderators for my wiki site(s)
  • Recruiting a comics artist for a new story
  • Patreon?

So as you can see I’ve got a lot to do and look into. So many stories to write, so many characters to bring to life, so much to manage with keeping everything in order. But while I’m doing that please enjoy the books and stories I’ve currently made and know that as busy as I’m going to be, I’m still working on getting it all done while taking on even more because that’s just how determined I am with my career. That said, please don’t forget to like, share, leave a comment, leave a review, retweet, and just help spread awareness of this growing plethora of stories and content made for your entertainment to even more potential readers. Every little bit helps, and every bit is greatly appreciated. Thank you all who have supported me thus far, I hope I’ve made good on your expectations of me and will continue to reach to higher peaks so as not to disappoint in the future.

Get ready for more Eden!

It’s time for some聽massive聽updates! Sorry for the wait with these, unexpected delays with getting the necessary components for the books ready, but everything is finally ready to roll out! So let’s just jump into the list with the first announcement…

Yes, a second edition of the first Chronicles of Eden book is now live! In this version I tweak some spelling and grammar errors, present a lovely new cover, and of course, due to popular demand, removed a HUGE chunk of the repetitive dialogue/bickering between the female leads, Triska and Alyssa. The story now progresses more smoothly along its plot points without dragging the reader down with unnecessary cat-fighting that, in hindsight, wasn’t really needed to begin with. The book is live on Amazon in both Kindle and Paperback formats for new readers to try out or perhaps for those who would want to give the book another go if the first edition was too repetitive for them.

Paperback version聽here

Next on the list of new publications is…

Two new boxed sets for Chronicles of Eden! Each set includes four books, four exclusive bonus pin-ups of the girls of Eden, and a sweet price to rival the cost of buying all the books separately. Did I mention the sexy pin-ups included? Not going to lie, Luna & Falla are my favorites聽;)聽The sets are available on Amazon for Kindle only, sorry but there’s no option (yet) for putting together physical boxed sets on their store page. If you’re new to the series check out these great bundles and get your journey through Eden started in style, or for current readers head on over if you’re just looking to add the new hotness to your collections.
Boxed Set 1聽here
Boxed Set 2聽here

Next is an update that covers all existing Chronicles of Eden books, both Kindle and Paperback. Prices have been lowered for all books! And for Paperback readers, all books now have cleaner, glossier covers, smaller sizes to prevent future door-stopping uses, and easier fonts to read. And cheaper prices too, don’t forget that.

Keeping with the update-train, new artwork prints for Eden’s lovely characters are going through coloring and finalizing before release, and to push things further a new animated trailer is in the works to help showcase this expansive monstergirl saga like never before (forget about the current trailer, that one is too old and vague in comparison). The new trailer will cover all the girls in the two main harems as well as the four Dark Queens who serve as the main villains of the books. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.

And on a final note, Chronicles of Eden – Act XII is halfway done with being written. All I will say for now, you’re not going to be able to put this one down once you start it.

UPDATE 7/3/18: A publication error has been found in Chronicles of Eden – Boxed Set 1, affecting Act I with bizarre unexpected line breaks. A revised copy is uploading to Amazon for future purchases, and Amazon will be pushing out the fixed copy to all current owners of the book. Sorry about that.

Three simultaneous Eden releases coming soon

No, I’m not talking about Chronicles of Eden – Act XII. Though that is drawing ever closer. I’m talking about three other publications for Chronicles of Eden that are in the final stages of development. Release updates will follow shortly along with more detailed information about Act XII and other exciting projects that are in the works for the monstergirl light novel series. Get ready for a massive notification soon and plenty of surprises.

A Quick Announcement

I’m excited to say the manuscript for Chronicles of Eden – Act XI is complete and compiled into the proper format to upload, and I’m just awaiting the final art pieces to put into the book before publishing. It is almost time! Took long enough, right? I sort of missed my original estimate of having this out last fall, and this isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Delayed releases, replacement covers, changed events, we’ve seen this same old song and dance before. Which is why I wanted to tell everyone about a bit of a change I’m going to enforce with how I do everything.

As I’ve said before in the past I have the main story of Chronicles of Eden all planned out. The beginning, middle, and end. I know where the major plot points are on the roadmap and where the story needs to go in order to reach these points. What isn’t set in stone however is the points between those major events. There’s room for exploring, developing, and changing the world, characters, and story to a degree between those major story events. As such some events and characters might show up earlier or later than expected, some events or locations might be added or removed, and there’s a level of flexibility to how the story rolls along with its characters and plot development. But this does have a downside that I’m starting to see more clearly. To add more content, no matter how exciting or necessary it may be, takes up more time in each book. For example, for those with very sharp memories you might remember the original Chronicles of Eden – Act VIII cover that was first shown, which had Squeak and Cindy in the midst of a burning forest. That book was originally planned to lead right into the battle of Green Haven, which is just聽now聽happening in Act XI. The reason for this event being pushed so far back was to have all of Daniel’s mates be introduced into the harem and given proper development before leading up to the reunion with the Gemini. This was a change that I felt needed to happen for reasons I can’t say because of spoilers, but it was one that required events to be switched around and some added entirely. Baby Snapper wasn’t originally planned to be introduced until聽way聽later in the story, but with Cindy’s introduction it was a good time for the little swarm’s as well. Star was first planned to show up way later as well, however she was moved into Act VIII and given development in Act IX so she could join the family sooner. It worked out for the better to have these characters show up earlier, but it still required more time for the story to progress to the point we’re at now.

Which brings us to now, with Act XI having a huge development time and a new cover to better reflect the book and its contents. I did manage to hit all the major events I wanted to in this book; proper character development with all of Daniel’s girls, Daniel himself growing as a protector of his new family, answering some lingering questions from the previous book while also raising new ones, and of course Daniel’s reunion with the Gemini. However a few things have been pushed back, all of which require more time to properly introduce, experience, and see the resulting aftermaths. Two characters have their artwork ready, yet they’re not showing up at all until the next book. Aeon was given more time to properly demonstrate that she is just as much a Dark Queen as the likes of the Gemini and Reaper, and she is now the one who will make the audience cringe and scream in horror for this entry. I hit the necessary milestones for this book but I can fit no more into it. The Act has reached 19 full chapters with 8 new character pieces, it’s a whopper of an entry for the series and moves the story right where it needs to go. Everything else will need to wait for the next book.

And now I finally get to my overall point with this ‘quick’ announcement. I’m going to try my best to stray away from ‘deadlines’ being formed for the books. No more “It’s almost time!” when the book isn’t far enough along with its development. No more posting covers as teasers until the Act is finalized and the cover is going to stay relevant. I don’t want to string along my readers or give them false promises, and I don’t want to lock myself into having deadlines to force these books out by otherwise the quality will surely suffer. So from now on just know this. The next book, whatever the next book is, it’s being worked on. And it will be ready when it’s ready. I’m not going to say “Look forward to it this fall” unless I can guarantee that its going to be ready by then, and that would mean I have the darned thing nearly completed at the time. I am going to continue this series, I am going to finish it. As for when the next books will be out or when the final entry will be coming our way, we’ll get there when we get there. That’s all I can honestly say with any certainty.

Thank you everyone for your continued support with this series and my writing. I do plan to keep doing this for a very long time still, and I hope you and many more will join me for the incredible ride.
