Remember, we are self-publishing at the moment, so please respect the price setting for the moment. It is currently set at the year in which the story was created (19.98), while the printed version will be set to $33.33 as they help cover certain fees necessary for the story’s success.
I, the author of my life’s work for which you are all here for, have been somewhat busy with traveling around the Pacific and being home with family and into my own shell.
On August 3rd of this year, I announced the completion of my first novel, Yscariot: Sphere of Light. Due to “printing politics” in the US, I will soon release the electronic version of my book online for a price set to $15USD or above for the “first look” of the story.
Meanwhile, a crowd-funding campaign will be in the works to have the book printed in the US. In my current country of residence, China [Shanghai area], books may be printed on demand. The FIRST EDITION (100 books) will be set to $33USD to help fund for legal and publishing costs (if I am going to do the self-publishing route). If we can print more paperback books, then we can get more out to the world.
The First Edition will only include the story, as an illustrated version is in hopes for a later and bigger release if we are successful!
I want to thank all of my followers, supporters, and readers, past-present-future, for all you have done for this story. It’s your story!
The word count for Yscariot: Sphere of Light is now 73,137 before reaching the 23rd verse in the editing process. There are currently SEVEN verses left until the first editing process for Yscariot is complete.
TRIVIA: The attack done by Yscariot to Dreas was a favorite move first demonstrated in Tekken 3 by the character, Hwoarang from around the time the move was inspired a year before the story’s conception.
I am beginning to discover that editing is perhaps the hardest part of writing a book. The story is also looking more like a story. For that, I wouldn’t have to feel too embarrassed with my writing. The most awesome thing actually is reaching 70,000 words in the manuscript! That’s over four to five thousand words from its first completion!
After careful consideration, I have decided to seek literary agents to review my work in hopes that a publisher for Yscariot™: Sphere of Light can be found. Until then, the manuscript will still undergo editing for improvements and omitted information inclusion only.
Also, Yscariot™: Chapter Two is tentatively titled, “Heaven’s Calamity” and a girl with purple hair was revealed on the same day. No information on her to be released for now, but stay tuned for Sphere of Light‘s updates.

Today, my 33rd birthday!
Currently, I am in Shanghai taking a break from attending masters courses in Chinese History at my university. I’m slowly editing the current 1st novel and looking over the outline before I begin working on other pieces.
Celebrate today by sharing this post and getting the word out about my work!

Thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday!
In celebration of the 18th anniversary of the conception of Yscariot, I am personally revealing the artwork of a character to appear and star in the second chapter in the Yscariot storyline.
She will appear as the antagonist in the second book. What her motives are as far as wanting to kill Yscariot will be a mystery, but until then, we will have to first find out what leads to these events after finishing the first chapter! Stay tuned and thank you for following! Don’t stop supporting my project!
Advertising the biggest preview to Yscariot: Sphere of Light was kind of slow with the big move to another city last year and the push to have the novel completed in early 2016. Other things like travel and writing breaks also prevented me from advertising. However, an attempt to advertise occurred for a 2-day only period, and about 1000 more downloads for the “Zeta Preview” of Yscariot™ were recorded through the website alone!
A major thank you to the people who took the time to visit the site and make 19/30 chapters a part of their digital library! If you haven’t yet done so, visit the DOWNLOADS page to get a free preview today!
