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!
Issue 01: Awakening will be re-released in Spanish for a special price (limited time). You can pre-order it on GooglePlay (Amazon coming soon). The book will return to $.99 USD on its release date JANUARY 17, 2020.
Issue 04 is currently in the works and will be released Spring 2020 (TBA).
Yscariot: Wrath of Royals
Verse 03 is currently in the works and will be released Spring 2020 (TBD)
More Yscariot tracks will be released via SoundCloud! A special page will be created with a password and link to the Yscariot tracks. You can download tracks from SoundCloud using the download button. More information to come.
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).
To celebrate his birthday, the Creator of Yscariot, Marcus Medina, will be releasing Chapter 1: Verse 5 as Issue #3 in the comic book series, and Chapter 2: Verse 2 in the novel series for Wrath of the Royals.
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 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.
Series details for the WOTR – ALPHA:
Preview Cover: Purple
Codenames: Greek alphabet such as alpha, beta, etcetera.
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.
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 #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.
