To be listed as a contributor, simply send an email with your receipt attached (you can block off all personal information except for the first name and initial of your last name) before September 18th.

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!

Sphere of Light: Now Over 70,000 WORDS!

70,000 word count REACHED!
70,000 word count REACHED!

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!

Now on to Verse 14 out of 29 😀

Happy Birthday, Marcus!

Happy Birthday, Marcus!

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!
Preview my story if you have not yet done so!

The Gospel of Yscariot Turns Eighteen!

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!

Hello World!
It’s Marcus again! The author of  the upcoming novel, Yscariot: Sphere of Light, and I currently have a large portion of my work available online. I am currently accepting followers, critics, or just about anyone who is looking for new fiction to read! I just want to take the time to thank the 2400+ great people giving my story a chance! The manuscript for the full story will be finished sometime on or before 2016!

Almost finished!!!

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 ^_^
