If you haven’t done so, check out my story on the downloads page. The first 19 chapters (known as VERSES) are FREE!!! There is a lot of reading content even though some of the story is omitted until the release of the complete novel. You can view the video to know the basic background of my story’s creation.
Today, around 2pm, I entered a printing shop in hopes of getting a demo copy of the Neo-Alpha preview book in paperback form. To my surprise, it was finally in my hands. A physical copy at the price of 18,000 South Korean Won, which is a little similar to about $18 USD. I walked with it practically all day and showed it to friends/coworkers, and they thought it was pretty great. Keep in mind, this is the very first print of my book. The cover was in color and the pages were in Black and White.
Fast forward to about 8pm later that day. I went into a candy shop to buy a few goodies and call it a night. Thinking I would be in-and-out in a short moment, I was wrong. The cashier asked me about my book, “Is that a comic book?” I told her no and that it is an unfinished action novel. She continued to ring me up and ask me what was the book about. I told her simple details and that it was an “action and fantasy story… basically, a superhero novel”. She told me that she loved Iron Man and I then told her I am writing the book “Yscariot”.
She was amazed and complimented me for being the first person she has ever met that was writing a book and even expressed the hope in reading it. She even said that she feels that this story is going to be a big hit and says that I will one day be famous. Now I cannot say that I believe her, but I can safely say that my faith in myself has increased dramatically because of this random incident. Keep this in mind as well: the girl is a young woman who looks about 20-21 years old and spoke really good English for a Korean. Anyways, I set the book inside of a bag that I placed my candies in, but then I thought about it, and decided to give her the first and only copy of Yscariot: Neo-Alpha. She seemed to be more enthusiastic about the book than anyone I know personally. Hopefully, more people will start to follow it and the word of mouth gets bigger and better.
Hola Followers y Lectores! Soy el Autor de Yscariot, Marcos Medina, y estoy muy feliz de finalmente anunciar una edición original Beta Versos en Español. Este sera un preview de 3 capitulos y sera gratis. Espero recibier algunos comentarios de ustedes que puedan ayudar para una futura version. Gracias!
As my work for the first part of my novel comes to a close, I would like to thank everyone who had, has, and will continuously watch my story grow from beginning to end. Again, this is only part of the first novel, and I am happy to share these writings free of charge for the time being. Keep in mind that this story is currently available as a preview and serves as the beginning to a story that was created 15-years ago… so changes are expected to occur, and PLEASE… leave some feedback that will be necessary for me to grow as a writer. Here are some things that you will need to know as I wrap up some things on my work:
For creative purposes, “The Gospel of Yscariot™” has now changed to Yscariot™ and any reference to any future previews and works will have this name (for the time being). “The Gospel…” will still be in use in the future as a designation of a collection of works relating to the story.
Future previews will still be released as mini-books.
A Spanish translation of the mini-book previews are in negotiation for a release, but is currently tentative.
Book #3, formerly known as the “DELTA” preview, will succeed the Beta and Gamma (Books #1 and #2 respectively) and has been given the new sub-title: NEO-ALPHA.
The Alpha, Beta, and Gamma previews of the Yscariot novel will no longer be available to download after the release of Neo-Alpha.
Yscariot: Neo-Alpha will be free for a limited time.
Neo-Alpha may include 10,000 or more words.
I want to thank you for taking time to read my post.
