Novel Completed!

Apologies for the late post!

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!

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.

Here is an update on Yscariot™: Sphere of Light (novel manuscript):

Riu Vs Yscariot: Electricity Vs. Light

I bought a sketch book a week ago and decided to use it to practice my horrible drawing skills. After completing the concept of one of the scenes of my book, I went on my PC and jumped on the digital tablet to concoct another horrible drawing. I actually love my concepts though, since they tell a part of my story, Yscariot: Sphere of Light.

This is an image I made using a couple PC tools to get this idea out. Yscariot and Riu are not only cousins and future heroes of Earth, but they rival each other from. Whether it is besting each other in simple video games to testing out their new-found power, they find the fun in being number one.

Happy New Years, from X’el Studios! X’ELCAST #6

Hope you’re all enjoying the first moments of the new year. I will be speaking a little bit about statistical highlights surrounding this webpage and the downloads that you all so wonderfully had been a part of in 2015. With the statistical data disappearing after the passing of each month, I decided to document them before I never have the chance to do so again. Out of the last 3 years since the opening of this site, 2015 was the most successful by a long shot!

Once again, I want to thank you, the visitors and downloading readers who made this all possible 🙂
