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.

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.

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.

It also hosts additional scenes not found in the original novel, but where intended to help readers understand the world that the characters live in.

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.
