I teased a new novella at the end of last year and now I am ready to officially announce it. The title of this novella is Tristaria Volume 1: Of Palantaros and it will (hopefully) be the first in a trilogy of standalone yet interconnected novellas. You can see an image of the cover below.
I have been working on Tristaria Volume 1: Of Palantaros for many months now and it is 99.9% complete, so I have ordered what is essentially a paid author’s proof from Lulu, which I should have in my hands before the end of January. Once I have checked the proof and corrected any errors that I may find, I expect to release Tristaria on Lulu and Amazon in early February. I will provide further details soon!😊
I’ve removed my graphic novel Night of the Werewolves from Amazon. It’s been available for free on Amazon for over a year, but in the last few months, Amazon has twice made it not free, without bothering to inform me of this. The first time this happened, I was able to have it changed it back to being free pretty quickly. However, now that it’s happened a second time, they’re dragging their feet for some reason. Anyway, I got tired of waiting for their response and decided it was just easier to unpublish it. But never fear; if you’re interested in reading Night of the Werewolves, it is available from Kobo (for free, of course).😊
This year, apart from working on Princess Elycia and The Star-shaped Scar, I’ve also been working on a few other things, and one of those things is an original illustrated novella, which I plan to release early in 2021. The image you can see above is a cropped version of the cover for this novella, which I finished working on yesterday. And what, you may ask, will the title of this novella be? I will reveal that shortly, along with a few other details.😊
The Japanese art site pixiv has added an interesting new “Request” feature. It is kind of like a commission system, except that the artist is under no obligation to accept every single request. Also, other fans can buy into a request simply by paying the same price as the original requester.
These kind of things rarely work out for me, but I’ve decided to give it a go, at least for a little while. So if you’re interested in making a request, click HERE. My fee for a request is ¥4000.
The third batch of my original web comic, The Secret of the Star-shaped Scar (or The Star-shaped Scar for short), kicks off today! This batch will consist of strips #23 to #34. Strips #01 through to #22 are still available and if you haven’t yet done so, you can read them by simply clicking HERE. The next strip will be posted at about this time tomorrow, so stay tuned!😁
The Secret of the Star-shaped Scar is a sci-fi thriller set in the 80s and centres on a young girl who has lost her memories after an apparent accident. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
