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.
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.
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.
