Seventeen Years of Yscariot™!!! New Updates!

YsCardIn 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!

Happy Birthday, Marcus!

Why this awesome work needs your rating!

With the free Neo-Alpha preview being 33% complete and available for immediate download, it is imperative that this book receives well-deserved attention. For one, it follows some of the traditional fantasy elements presented in a “hero’s story”, but it also introduces a fresh new complex world that happens in modern times. I will go a little into detail why I need ratings (you can rate it here: https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=nXLBBAAAQBAJ)

You can rate and comment via Google Account.

Why? Because ratings let the author know what he or she is doing right or wrong. Also, this is the first time I worked on something this major. Creatively, there are things I know I cannot change, but the way it will be presented may change in the future based on ratings. Just to simplify things, I just need your ratings from 1 to 5 with a personalized comment about what you like and/or don’t like about the book. It will be great to have ratings on display to encourage other readers into downloading it from Google Play.  Of course, this comment is geared towards the loyal followers, but all readers are encouraged to rate! I do appreciate it!

The overall mission is to write a masterpiece, but how will I know if my book serves it’s ultimate purpose without any readers to back it up? Sometimes, I wonder, but I must be persistent.

Thanks for reading!

Delta… coming this September.

With the Beta and Gamma both reaching over 400 downloads, I am happy to announce that the Delta will be created and is due to release sometime this month. Thank you to all who have downloaded and read my story! The Facebook page has also reached over 7,500 fans! Thank you for taking interest and motivating me to move forward with the mini-books project.

I need your help (:

It’s Marcus from Seoul, South Korea!

I am writing a book with the intentions of telling a story to many people. My friends whom I told this long story to loved it so much that I was motivated to writing it into a book. With the action scenes of course, I decided to apply images to it in the form of a comic book. It is actually a hybrid book with written entries instead of incorporating books that are fully-made comics or novels.

I am hoping to gain any potential reader who is interested in comics, epics, and novels. I promise that my handwriting is not hard to read. I have a few outlets to purchase from at the moment. Amazon and Google Books via Google Play.

I have a Facebook fan page that acts as a more efficient information outlet and a kickstarter to help me with project costs. Here are some links, and I hope that you will enjoy reading my stories.

Again, I am the sole artist and writer throughout the 98% of the book. The first “alpha” book will be at a low price of $2.99 ($2.51 on Google) to allow you to see a full preview of my style, format, and story.

The 30 Day Comic Challenge

It is really hard to find anyone here with the same passions as me. I could ask all day to have someone draw out my dream. I have come to the conclusion that, not all dreams are easily seen, not even by the self. Some dreams aren’t easily understood, words are not as legible, and lessons aren’t easily learned. It took me a while to know that I have my own dreams and therefore, they will be visualized.

It might not be as cool-looking as yours, his, hers, or anyone else’s who can illustrate beautiful pictures… BUT MY DUTY as a writer and storyteller is to tell the story. As long as someone appreciates it, I have done what I needed to do. However, if I could get a really good manga-style artist on my team that would be great too!

Anyone else agrees with me?

P.S. This 30-day challenge only applies to my very first episode (this is a long story), and I wanted to get it done before I relocate to Seoul, South Korea. Maybe I can find someone there to work on the latter episodes? Who knows?
