These “Promises” are made by contributors, supporters, and readers in the form of family and friends in order to expedite the process of getting the story out there. Promises means that you WILL contribute the given amount
However, anyone can contribute and have a piece of history! (Hey, the first releases of Harry Potter books are worth thousands of dollars a piece now!) In order to make a promise to contribute, please send a message directly to my (the author) E-mail address. Details of the book and promotion are as follows:

Please note: There will NOT be a “Kickstarter” or other funding site available for the time being (I no longer have an American checking account, nor can I afford to pay any extra fees for the sake of shipping and handling).
Such an awesome Christmas gift for us by you, the readers and supporters of this story! Again, happy holidays to all of our supporters!
From April 28th (this year) to December 11th, I had only 995 downloads for the Zeta, and it was pretty slow due to moving, traveling, and not really campaigning much, since I figured most readers were likely reading the Continue reading 3234 Zeta Downloads!!!→
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.
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.
Yscariot: The Zeta Verses revisits characters and introduces new ones in art and writing. Preview the first 19 chapters of the future in action-fantasy for FREE today! Visit the Downloads page to get started on the story now.
