Second Novel Serialization is NOW!

I am very excited to announce the coming of the second chapter in the Yscariot‘s story, Chapter II: Wrath of the Royals, and its serialization. Like the previous novel, Chapter I: Sphere of Light, it will be serialized up to a number of verses, possibly up to 10, before closing to be a completed novel.

The LOWEST PRICE to ever buy the second novel begins now. Now available on GooglePlay (also available for Amazon Kindle platforms). Prices will increase after November 21st, 2019.

The third chapter is estimated to be the shortest of the sixth with the final being the longest to create. In this time, it may take many years to complete the project based on the amount of support there is to back the writer and connected artists to all projects. We are all trying anything and everything for Yscariot to become something that is shared worldwide. With the first book being so large, I hope to shrink the word count down to 50,000-60,000 but if the consensus believes Sphere of Light the word and page count is okay, then there will be no focus on how big the next book will be.

Until then, I hope that you, the reader, will take time to purchase and enjoy this improved addition to the Yscariot line-up. If you own the SPECIAL EDITION novel, all updates will be automatic until the very end of the Wrath of the Royals timeline and will also include other goodies not found in the standard books.

The story continues as a standalone download for those who do not own the Special Edition on Amazon. The start-up price for first comers begins at $0.99 USD and will increase after November 21st, 2019!

Series details for the WOTR – ALPHA:

  • Preview Cover: Purple
  • Codenames: Greek alphabet such as alpha, beta, etcetera.
  • Verse Count:
    • Alpha: Verses 1-3
    • Beta: Verses 4-6
    • Gamma: Verses 7-9
  • Transforming File: The book will transform into the next codename as time passes.
  • GREAT NEWS! In the past, I separated books into categories based on their codename. This time, there will be only ONE book with limited price ranges. That means, if you buy the digital book now, you will buy it at its LOWEST PRICE ever. First to come will be the first to win! The regular estimated price will be set between $7.99 or $9.99. Again, SPECIAL EDITION customers of the digital copy of Sphere of Light will not need to make any additional purchases as Wrath will be given free through automatic upload.

Yscariot & X’el Studios 21st Anniversary

 

Not much activity at the moment aside from building the third issue of the Yscariot comics, but Project Yscariot and X’el Studios is now 21 years in the making! Please help us celebrate by purchasing and enjoying a novel or comic from Amazon or GooglePlay!

Temporary Cover Page

On sale for $1.99. Click on the image to be taken to the Amazon page.

In the next few hours, customers of Issue 02 will notice a change on the cover of their digital comic books. A temporary cover page was created to replace the traditional cover page that normally embraces the front of the books created by the author-creator of the series. Over five illustrators around the world were chosen create the cover over the span of four months but no submissions were made. In the meantime, the author has quickly substituted a cover that illustrates his concept of what the cover should have looked like.

Although the level of skill in the cover art is much lower than the quality of the actual comic images, it should be noted that this is only a concept and artists all over the world are more than welcomed to contribute a complete and permanent version to replace the substitute. If you are an illustrator interested in contributing cover art, please contact Marcus by clicking here.

Issue II: EARLY RELEASE on Amazon!

Issue #2 of the Yscariot comics is now available on Amazon for the digital Kindle app. For $1.99, the comic is released 3 days before it’s intended date of April 20th. You can purchase the comic on Amazon at the link provided: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QS5JXMM

This news follows the previous post from earlier this morning, when the comic’s core pages were released. A new cover will be made in the future with an update to be announced at a later time. We sincerely hope you enjoy this new addition to the Yscariot story.

Words from the creator of Yscariot:
To keep these works coming faster, we need your support. For most of the the last and past year, I have been the sole source of building the story, but I can’t do it alone. Yscariot is heavily dependent on you, our current and prospect supporters and followers to create the next new superhero for a new age. Whether or not this story or comic is for you, there are always people who may be interested in this story, so please let them know about Project Yscariot! It may be a 20-year old pre-planned project all saved up as notes and data on paper, computer, and even my own mind, but it is still new to the world in its telling. I hope to create an exciting story that has its own life for as long as the world allows it to. Thank you.

Creator & Author Banned from Tencent’s WeChat

Author, Marcus Medina, banned from WeChat for an indefinite about of time.

For no reason stated by Tencent, the leader of the movement was banned indefinitely on their WeChat platform ON HIS BIRTHDAY!

While it definitely made for the worst birthday gift ever, the author of the Yscariot series had a great time celebrating his birthday with delicious Italian food and cake in Shanghai, China.

Back to the banning. A ban on the WeChat platform, which is primarily the main form of communication in China, means a return to the dark ages from a period of 90 days or more. You will not be able to communicate (send/receive messages) along with other things.

Here is the official statement from the author:

To all of my friends in China, if you are reading this, please know that I received the majority of your messages and I want to say thank you so much for the birthday wishes and greetings.

The Yscariot: Issue 01 comic book will probably experience a setback in physical sales due to the WeChat debacle, but I will work to find a way to communicate with you all to work something out.

Sorry for the trouble and hope to catch up with you all again.
