Yscariot, Zeta, [ENG] & Alpha [JPN] News!!!

As many of you know, the Action/Heroic fantasy book project that I am writing, titled Yscariot, is a mighty old one that I have built over the course of 16 years. Since mid-January 2014, the story only had 3 written chapters as a graphic hybrid and grown slowly into a small series with three times as many chapters. The reason why I published a series of chapters at a time was because I couldn’t wait to tell the story to the world. Another reason for me starting long before publishing a full novel is because of the length of time to even publish, and with that happening, there are other stories (books and movies) that have been using the same ideas that I created over a decade ago for their own thing. I much rather be the first to showcase my ideas before anyone else for the sake of being original. I do have odes, allusions, and tributes to other stories, but I do it in an original way.

Moving on, I am simply announcing that Yscariot: The Zeta Verses will be releasing shortly on PDF. This means that readers will no longer be limited to previewing the 19 chapters on GooglePlay. The downside to this is that you won’t get that awesome page turning effect, nor will you get the automatic updates that comes with GooglePlay. Again, the story is still in a draft stage, so you as the reader are welcome to suggest changes to any mistake seen or offer critique and feedback.

Lastly, Yscariot: The Alpha Verses will be available in Japanese on May 15th, 2015 on both GooglePlay and PDF formats. Do not be alarmed when seeing news in Japanese, as X’el Studios continues to spread the story to readers of other languages.

Thank you,
~M~

Chapter 16 is finished, and to recap but not spoiling anything, Yscariot is showing potential with the power he received with his Light energy. The image that I have posted reflects Yscariot at the time of the Zeta chapters.

The Author does Japan

The Author and the Translator meet face-to-face in Shibuya, Tokyo.

During the Lunar New Year holiday, the Creator of X’el Studios and Yscariot™ visited Tokyo, and Yokohama to meet with friends old and new while revisiting sites that he either stepped foot on or was previously unable to visit years ago on his first trip to Japan. Most importantly was the meeting of the official Japanese-language translator of the upcoming Yscariot mini-series, “イスカリオット:α”. Continue reading The Author does Japan

Cover Page Clash! Battle for the Cover!

Can you help us choose a cover for the Japanese Alpha preview of Yscariot? "White" or "Black"?
Can you help us choose a cover for the Japanese Alpha preview of Yscariot? “White” or “Black”?

It’s 5:30am on a Friday morning, and I am here with only one simple question. “Which title logo will look best on the cover of the Japanese preview to Yscariot: Alpha?” As my book is currently being translated in Japanese, I am here just getting my cover ready and I hope that you… the People of the World, can help me out. If you have any suggestions to improving these logos, you can also comment below! Thank you! Also, be sure to check out my book previews that I have periodically released and other information, too!
