The Weapon of The Kara (Web Novel) Chapter 5

Chapter Five: The Six

“And now we return to Star Hunters: The Journey of Astronomers!” announced a woman on the television.

Adam and Luke were sitting on the couch in Cara’s living room. Cara had invited everyone to her house so they could decide what they wanted to do. Adam and Luke had arrived first, so Cara invited them to watch T.V. while she took a shower and got ready.

“What’s an astronomer?” Luke asked.

2017 Goals

A new year is arriving and that means time for new goals.

  • Release Cronus Collection – Currently targeted for the end of the year, this is going to be my big project for the year and the largest novel I’ve written to date. I think I should be able to surpass 60,000 words for the first time but quality always comes first.
  • Release Shadow Puppet Mysteries 2, 3, and 4 – I think releasing at least three more installments in my second mystery series should be manageable. I’m excited to release Part 2 at the beginning of the year and I have a few tricks already prepared for later parts.
  • Release The Library Complex Web Novel – Every week, starting from late January, I’ll release an updated chapter from my very first novel. It’s important for me to continue sharing my first series with my fans, but they deserve better quality which is what led to the idea for the weekly releases and making it available for free.
  • Release Memory Blood Saga This Summer – The proof copy of Memory Blood Saga has been with me for a few months, but I think it’s a project better worked on slowly over time to ensure the highest quality so my new target release date is this summer. Sorry for making everyone wait!

These goals are achievable. I’ve looked at my schedule and I know it’s possible to get all of them done. I’ll be pushing myself a bit more this year than last, but as long as I commit to these projects I’m sure they’ll all turn out just as I’ve envisioned them!

Writing Update: December 2016 Mega Update

Ahead of my usual Year End wrap-up and goals posts, I’d like to provide an update on all of my current projects.

Cronus Collection – Writing is going well and I have about 18,000 words in my current draft. Most of the material here has already been edited a bit, so I don’t think much will be excluded from the final version coming at the end of 2017. Later this week, I’ll be writing a little bit about the protagonist Leo Ranatas. While the story is the story of a city and has many different main characters from chapter to chapter, Leo’s story will span the entire novel.

Shadow Puppet Mysteries 2 – The scenario for Part 2 was completed some time ago, but I’d like to add more and refine what I’ve written. To be safe, I’m announcing the release date as January 31st, 2017 with the option of launching a little earlier if I’m happy with it before then.

The Library Series – For a few years now, I’ve expressed my desire to update The Library Series. However, working on new projects is important to continuously provide my fans with new content and making it my sole focus would just delay new adventures. At the same time, my first series does need some work as it’s the very first thing I published and I know exactly how to fix it to elevate it to my current standards so…

Next year begins The Library Series Web Novel Project! Starting late January, a new updated chapter from The Library Complex will be released every week! When this work is finished, the book on Kindle will be updated to the new 2017 version. Please look forward to returning to the world of The Library Series with refinements!

Memory Blood Saga – Unfortunately, this is the project that is going to be delayed further. Having just finished the series, the need for a full collection isn’t that high. I still want to fix up the small errors in the text and update all the digital books with the launch of the print book, but for now Memory Blood Saga is being pushed back to mid-2017. Please accept my apologies once more.

Writing Update: January 2016 Edition

Good evening!

At the end of this upcoming week, Creswood Illusions will be released for free on the site. As I work on finishing this third story in the Creswood series, I’m also working on Memory Blood 4 for release this summer as well as other minor projects.

Right now there are many possibilities for Memory Blood 4. Ideally, the true plot will begin to take shape sooner rather than later but until then I’ve been writing various scenes and exploring different possibilities. Please look forward to some more concrete information in the future.

Also, I’ve prepared a gift for this Valentine’s Day. Another Alpha Fragment will be published featuring a certain character’s first appearance…

Discord Complete

Memory Blood 3 has now been completed and is ready to be released on December 29th!

Originally the book was going to have 5 new stories, but in the final release there are only 2 (plus a very short bonus story). First, let me apologize for not communicating this change earlier. Naturally the price of the book has been updated to 99 cents to recognize the fact that it is now similar to a short story in size.

The reason that this happened was mainly due to my optimism at being able to release a book the size of the first two in just four months. Memory Blood Doubt took an entire year from conception to completion so I knew that I was challenging myself when I decided Discord would be released by the end of the year.

While the scope of the book has changed, I am very happy with it. As I always say, I never release anything that I do not believe in. The tone of this book is a little different but I think that it has something unique to offer. It may be a little unexpected or maybe it’s exactly what you would expect after the ending to Memory Blood 2…

As always, feel free to send me your opinions.

Memory Blood 4 will likely be released Summer 2016 so please enjoy Discord while you wait for what might be the big finale!

And, as is traditional, remember to look out for my New Year’s post about what I’ll be working on in 2016.
