Why this awesome work needs your rating!

With the free Neo-Alpha preview being 33% complete and available for immediate download, it is imperative that this book receives well-deserved attention. For one, it follows some of the traditional fantasy elements presented in a “hero’s story”, but it also introduces a fresh new complex world that happens in modern times. I will go a little into detail why I need ratings (you can rate it here: https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=nXLBBAAAQBAJ)

You can rate and comment via Google Account.

Why? Because ratings let the author know what he or she is doing right or wrong. Also, this is the first time I worked on something this major. Creatively, there are things I know I cannot change, but the way it will be presented may change in the future based on ratings. Just to simplify things, I just need your ratings from 1 to 5 with a personalized comment about what you like and/or don’t like about the book. It will be great to have ratings on display to encourage other readers into downloading it from Google Play.  Of course, this comment is geared towards the loyal followers, but all readers are encouraged to rate! I do appreciate it!

The overall mission is to write a masterpiece, but how will I know if my book serves it’s ultimate purpose without any readers to back it up? Sometimes, I wonder, but I must be persistent.

Thanks for reading!

How big is Yscariot?

Extremely big. Fifteen years of telling the story to myself, and now it is time to write it all down. When my book is finished, I will look into writing more stories. This is what my life is about. There are other people to write about… let’s look at the future.

The future of Y... always stay tuned and be involved.

7 Things to Know About Neo-Alpha

NeoATITLEpublic
Cover of Neo-Alpha by ~rin~

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.

October Update

For some who have forgotten. The Gospel of Yscariot (Delta Preview, or commonly known as Book #3) has been delayed to undergo creative changes while our artist recovered from a typhoon strike in the Philippines. Now that things have gotten better, I am happy to announce to announce a few things:

  • I have also made the transition from moving from Seoul to Jeju Island in Korea (for those who may not know, I am currently teaching English here).
  • The writing is 85% 100% complete, and editing is about 60% complete (maybe).

Again, I want to thank everyone who is patiently waiting for the next issue of my novel project. Once again, the Delta is the THIRD preview into the story. I will be opening up a page to help crowd-fund for a few things in the future.

Enjoy reading!
