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.
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.
It’s here! The fourth issue of Yscariot is finally coming and it’s available for pre-order for the low price of $0.99. That’s NINETY-NINE CENTS! One cent less than a single US dollar! There are many things that can be done with a single dollar. However, owning this book through Amazon or GooglePlay store will allow you to keep this book in your library forever.Continue reading Issue 4: available March 25
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.
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!
By looking at the new cover, one may notice the slight change in the title logo. Here is the new general concept. There may be slight variations over time, but this one looks a little more appealing.
issue Two of Yscariot: Sphere of Light is currently under development and is slated for a March release. More information about an exact date is coming soon!
Issue 02 will feature two verses and introduce new characters.
It happened a few days ago.
A friend from the neighborhood in Shanghai read some of Yscariot during the holidays and took it upon himself to translate Verse 0: Prologue (Earth) in Arabic! It was perhaps one of the greatest random acts of kindness for the upcoming epic. Yes, the English version is still under development, but it would be awesome to see an ALPHA written entirely in Arabic.
Special thanks to Nazar Q. for his efforts on this draft.
In 1998, Yscariot™ started out as “Project H”. After experiencing a few troubles in the previous and following years and playing and reading through a few Japanese game and comic book stories, I took it upon myself to create a story of my own.
The background story on how Yscariot™ was created has already been told time and time again, but it is hard to refrain from telling and Continue reading Seventeen Years of Yscariot™!!! New Updates!
