SURPASSING 73,000!

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.

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.

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.

New Character Added!

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!

4090+ Zeta Preview Website Downloads!

Advertising the biggest preview to Yscariot: Sphere of Light was kind of slow with the big move to another city last year and the push to have the novel completed in early 2016. Other things like travel and writing breaks also prevented me from advertising. However, an attempt to advertise occurred for a 2-day only period, and about 1000 more downloads for the “Zeta Preview” of Yscariot™ were recorded through the website alone!

A major thank you to the people who took the time to visit the site and make 19/30 chapters a part of their digital library! If you haven’t yet done so, visit the DOWNLOADS page to get a free preview today!

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 🙂

3234 Zeta Downloads!!!

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!!!

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 ^_^

Finish Line Imminent; Novel’s Name Reveal?

At over 61,000 words and 295 pages into the manuscript, I can finally say that I have gotten past the climax and falling action sections of my story. The final and 30th verse (C1:V1 Revelation) is being written right now. A year ago from today, I was probably on Verse 14, that is about halfway to Continue reading Finish Line Imminent; Novel’s Name Reveal?

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.

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!
