Below is a preview of one of the later, and unreleased, verses featuring the sanctioned fight between Yscariot and the top bully in West Nazares High School, Dreas.

In appreciation for all that my mother, and grandmother especially, has done for me and my family, I dedicate this art, illustrated by fellow team member and artist, Gladys Betiles, to my mother. You can also spread the love, too! Whether it’s your mother’s birthday, Mother’s Day, or any day… send this image to your mother, or simply give her a hug.

I thank my mother for her support of my story! It is a long process, but I am getting there! To see the biography of Yscariot’s mother, Maryam, simply click here or visit the character glossary!

Return from a Season Hiatus

Very little activity was done during the Winter and Spring  seasons in terms of editing. With several changes happening in Korea, returning to the USA to visit family and friends, and recharging that motivation to get back into writing, it was only a matter of time that I would get back to the story.

While on that break, I was able to come up with ways to strengthen my story and a new idea for another story was born! I will reveal it sometime soon as it was only conceived while on a trip to Shenyang-Beijing (China). To add, I was accepted into Shanghai University’s Master’s Program. Yes, I need a break from traditional work so that I can focus more on myself and my own personal goals. Yscariot being one of them.

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!!!

The Second Incomplete Manuscript
The Second Incomplete Manuscript

So, I got a little curious and decided to print out my [ALMOST FINISHED] manuscript in book form at a local Kinko’s in Seongnam, South Korea. I have to say, with one verse (chapter) left in the first novel, this thing is extremely powerful. This is over 17 years in the making you all!!! I wonder if anyone out there would be kind and interested enough to pre-order my book ^_^

28 down; 2 more to go

Yes, I am almost finished with the great journey of completing my first novel, Yscariot™!

With over 58,000 words and 28 verses (chapters), I can say that I am now closer than ever to finishing this project. Of course, I have a lot of extra content that was omitted from the previews and some adjustments big and small to do, but the good thing is that it will be finished before it is to be edited.
