No critic is quite as harsh as yourself. I know I’ve neglected portions of this website and I do apologize; I’ve been diverting all my attention to other aspects of my life. Rest assured, I will not let this continue at my readers’ expense. I will persevere to update this as often as possible. 🙂
Really important things, like I am horrible about maintaining this website right now. I will persevere to remedy that. I am really excited for the release of Story 2. Please stick with me, I’m almost ready! I think you’ll enjoy it once I am done, there is much more to explore in the world of Arcana.
A teaser from the next chapter: Alter Program.
This Matter Arcanum spell combines two materials on multiple dimensions depending on the caster’s intent.
For example, a mage has cast Alter Program and combined a gun with a stick of dynamite to create a compact grenade launcher of sorts. A mage of the Matter Arcanum can combine copper with rubber to create a rubber elastic yet conductible material. In essence, they can combine nearly any mechanism or material trait with another object.
I’m not slacking on updating the website, I’m postponing the site update to this weekend because I should have draft 1 of story 2 finished by then. The story should come first, in my opinion.
I find it easiest to write when I have the music I’m listening to match the mood of what I’m writing about. I love big bands and orchestras for climaxes, like during those “boss fights” I encountered in my youth of video games. 🙂
I’ll schedule a site update for this weekend, with expanded glossary, audio files for pronunciations and whatever else I can fit in without spoiling the next chapter!
February sure is an interesting month so far. I feel much and more will happen. 🙂
The days of the month vary throughout the year, so I simply aim for a release on the 1st day of every month.
Each chapter will be 10,000 words or more, and when I reach my goal of 100,000 words, I feel my series will be worth printing hard copies. Despite my personal preference of holding a book in my hands, it can’t hurt to save a few trees in my digital endeavors.
Chapter 2 is on it’s way.
The Reclamation is now available through most major e-book markets: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and of course it is available in multiple formats for different e-readers at SmashWords. Google Books is the last pending market. Follow me here, feel free to post comments and I will answer questions you have while I write the series.
Visit the publisher too and check out their selection at Each Voice Publishing
As of today, my book is available through Smashwords distribution. Additional outlets will open in the next 24 to 48 hours. I should be available on most major ebook markets soon.
Today also marks the official launch of the blog for The Reclamation. I invite my readers to discuss and express their opinions about my work as I issue chapters monthly. I intend for each chapter to be, in essence, a novella. I will blog as I write too, adding pronunciations, glossaries, and maps in time.
The Reclamation WordPress project is started.
