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 😀

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!

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 ^_^

Seventeen Years of Yscariot™!!! New Updates!

YsCardIn 1998, Yscariot started out as “Project H”. After experiencing a few troubles in the previous and following years and playing and reading through a few Japanese game and comic book stories, I took it upon myself to create a story of my own.

The background story on how Yscariot™ was created has already been told time and time again, but it is hard to refrain from telling and Continue reading Seventeen Years of Yscariot™!!! New Updates!
