Last month I officially ran out of completed manuscripts. That’s right, I’ve been writing free-form this month, and so far, it’s going smooth.
If you notice a decline in my prose, please know that like Suffocation, the work will eventually get uber-edited to clean up the clunky bits. For now, first-run episodes will be polished to the best of ability in the time allotted.
Obiz Banto’s subplot in Tribal Warfare is how I’m fusing the end-game narrative of ascension into Kul’s latest mission. It feels jarring to insert chapters set in Ramaxia between the action and violence of the current mission – but they will tie together in the final scenes, and I’m hoping it pays off.
I have no artwork done of Obiz Banto (or Ebival Kul and the many others who’ve appeared recently). It bums me out a bit because my background in writing was always tied to visual-arts. I just don’t have the funds right now for those arts – and I’m not really working on trying to market because writing is taking up all my time.
Signal boost please- if you’re reading or if you’ve read, I can use all the subscribers I can to make these arts happen. 🙂 Thanks!
Dokomad Dox joins a group of investigative journalists roaming the Badlands for a story on Utahraptor Sil. In Ramaxia, Obiz informs kerma Eppis of her new Cloister position with Velto Wram.
The project I’m part of at work is now in the shooting stage, and this frees me up to focus more on the revisions I made to Episode Ten. No fear, ep-10 will release on the 15th as scheduled!
The retail release of the Suffocation arc has led me to engage social media again; I’ve created a Facebook Page and a new Twitter account for the series. I’m hoping this will drive traffic here and lead to more patrons – again, thanks to you all who’ve subscribed here at Femitokon.com, and to my couple of buds over at Patreon. I don’t do enough to promote the Patreon side of things because no one seems interested in hooking their info up over there– I hope that changes. 0_0
As always, if you’re new to this site–please feel free to check out the characters, timelines, and wiki-links. Immerse yourself for as long as you wish–this part of Femitokon is 100% free to read. If you like what I’ve built here, then consider subscribing via Paypal (Credit Card) or Patreon – you can catch up on Episodes 1-9 for just $2 (if you’re a fast reader!), but if you’re unwilling to commit, that’s okay. The first three episodes are available at Amazon, BN.com, Kobo, and the mighty Smashwords!
During the second editorial pass of Episode 10, I found that tightening up Sofita and Fuzo’s story led to expanding the Obiz Banto subplot (we see Eppis and Velto progress through Obiz’ eyes). Concentrating on the mission in the Badlands forced me to shift two critical scenes in the subplot (and add a whole new one) to Episode 11.
