Views on the World and Black Lives

First and foremost, “Black Lives Matter“ and it always mattered. As a person who identifies as a Black Mexican-American with Native American and Mexican roots, I want to state that I have personally experienced outright and secret racism in different places in the world, but mainly, I had exchanges most of my life in America where the majority of the pains of growing up and being Black and Latino occurred.

BAD NEWS, GOOD NEWS for ISSUE 04

As announced, Issue 4 was anticipated to be released with a price tag of $1.99. However, Amazon is locking the price of DARK MEMORY at $2.99 due to the new digital conversion rates and the royalty scheme.

You can purchase Issue 4 by following the hyperlinks below:
Amazon | Google

It is in deeply frustrating, but in a countermeasure to help future customers save money, I had personally adjusted the price for all books so that customers will still be able to save one dollar for the price of the collection. In addition, the regular price for the first issue, Awakening, will not increase in price. Issues 2 & 3 will continue to have a $1 increase.

It is expected of Amazon to sometimes limit the low value price for books created by independent creators and authors. So, I apologize on their behalf and continuously hope that my supporters, which is hopefully you, will continue to be at my side while I am preparing the next issue.

As for GooglePlay, my sales are quite low on that end, and the GooglePlay reader app is actually a much better app to view on. So, I prefer that any reader who wants to buy my book for a lesser price on a better viewing model, download the book from the GooglePlay Store. The pricing scheme is much better on GooglePlay and sales there may help Amazon lower the price of the first book (which will result in Issue 1’s increase). These are the only solutions I can come up with at this time.

Additionally, Issue 01 is available in SPANISH on GooglePlay! So, if you have any friends who only understand Latin American Spanish, this is your chance to share the story! An Amazon version will come soon.

Once again, I want to thank everyone who shown support and condolences for my family during this time and please keep yourselves and family safe.

Delays: Family Matters

Due to unforeseen circumstances from the time of the first delay, I will be delaying Issue #4 of my comic book series until further notice. The team is still working on the book at the moment (we’re almost done!), so we thank everyone who is waiting patiently for the next episode in the Yscariot saga.

I will like to take this time to thank my grandmother, which some of you know the first book was dedicated to, for taking care of me throughout my entire life so far. She was my motivation for everything that I have done and it hurts to say that she has left us on February 24th of this year. She was surrounded by family who loved her dearly and she loved everyone in return. For all of the things I’ve done, she’s witnessed and I appreciate that she recognized what I’m trying to do now with my story, even though I wasn’t as successful as I hope.

Thank you, Granny. My wish is to keep making you proud and feel it for the years to come.

Corona virus impact & updates

As the creator of Yscariot, I hoped to bring the news as soon as I can about all things related to my life’s work. However, the Novel Coronavirus is reportedly causing a shutdown on the city of Shanghai as well as other cities in China. Schools, gyms, and businesses have all shut down. Does it mean more time to work on the story? Not quite, but it brings work home and there is a large amount of time researching solutions to any issue that may arise if I am unable to continue living in China. We are strong, and I believe that China will rise from this issue.

As far as Yscariot itself is concerned, it will be some time when I’ll release new material in a timely fashion. I will release new material, but in a slower capacity than usual, unless there is a lot of [financial] support from a community to help the story become more self-sufficient as my online work hours have been reduced significantly and that means it will be harder to produce work.

The novel-based Issue 04: Dark Memory was originally intended for a Valentine’s Day release and will be tentatively moved to March 4th. New songs (jingles) were also created as filler songs and may be released on a special page in the future for customers.

Chapter 2: Wrath of Royals sales were incredibly low, and that won’t stop its progression, however it does influence at lot of the progression towards a new chapter’s completion. With this, I’ll be creating a prequel to the events of the Yscariot: Awakening verse titled Yscariot: Verse Double Zero.

Although things are quite slow, don’t stop supporting the movement! We need all the help we can get! Thank you!

Pre-Order Updates and Issues!

With Issue 3 being days away from its release, there were issues regarding the pricing of the pre-order.

After uploading over 20 pages of the eBook file, Amazon automatically blocked the 99¢ Pre-Order price and demands that the price be raised to $1.99. I apologize to anyone who was not able to afford the book at the discount price in the limited time left until my birthday. However, I came up with two really good solutions:

1. The prices of ALL other books will remain unchanged until November 30th of this year, so 10 more days to enjoy the lower prices.

2. Those who bought the book will get a free code to my SoundCloud’s private playlist and hear ALL Yscariot concept music in its entirety. Please contact me by email with a screenshot of your purchase (please hide your personal contact information).
