Greetings, fellow true believers! Another week, another blog post.
First things first. As you all know by now, I am uploading all my novels to Smashwords and Lulu.com in preparation for breaking with Amazon entirely. Robots and Vampires: A Cyborg’s Odyssey is already up on Smashwords, and I will have both The Standard Tech Case Files: The Black Coats and The Dead and the Damned up by the end of this week. All three will be on Lulu.com by the end of the month.
Beginning in February, I will go back to writing my fanfiction and the next novel in the Standard Tech Case Files series. Also starting in February, I will have new rewards for my patrons on Patreon, so be sure to check those out! More details later.
Today, though, I want to talk about something else for a minute. Specifically, I want to talk about Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Join me under the cut!
Another week, another update.
- First, the research is not done, but done enough I can start crafting the skeletons of my stories
- Why am I doing this, you ask? Because when I looked over my previous chapters, there were redundant arcs, mis-characterization and worse. A lot of it will have to be re-written.
- On that note, the bare skeletons of the stories (as defined by The Novel Factory, anyway) are done.
- Which means I can move on to the equivalent for my characters! Yay! I want to have them all finished by the end of this week, ‘cept Pokémon. That one will take a little longer because it has way more characters.
- On that note, you should start to see some of my WorldAnvil stuff come online and become public this month, too. I will keep you all updated.

Robots and Vampires (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NDLMDT4): Two
hundred years in the future, a young cyborg stops the richest boy in
town from killing a gynoid. Now he must flee from the only home he’s
ever known to Fort City, base of the mysterious Standard Technologies,
Inc. Can he trust them?
The Standard Tech Case Files-The Black Coats
(https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00VTWMR7W): When there’s a corpse on the
street, somebody has to answer for that. When the body in question is
the squire of a prominent vampire, the call for blood only gets louder.
Follow Joey Bianco and his squire Jen Ryan as they hunt down a killer
and try to keep the peace between vampires and humans.
The Standard Tech Case Files-The Dead and The Damned
(https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MRSBC7I): Tensions between humanity and
vampires are heating up. A vampire store has been ransacked. Protestors
are being arrested without trial. Can Joey Bianco and Jen Ryan find a
peaceful solution? Or will the streets of Fort City run red with blood?
Yes ladies and gentlefreaks, there is an update:
- The Uncanny X-Men: Part two of the Vanisher arc is up. Part three is in progress at about 20% done.
- The Amazing Spider-Man! We’re out of the Chameleon’s introduction and into the Vulture! Part one is in progress, at about 15% done.
- Pokémon Red Version: this next chapter is coming along very slowly and I apologize for that. However I say it’s about 50% done.
- Batman: What, you thought I was going to do a fanfic universe based off of comics and miss this guy? Not a chance. The first chapter is around fifty percent done.
- Wonder Woman: Call it a little over 25% done.
- Superman: About 33% done. Big first chapter, don’t expect it to come out for a while.
- The Fantastic Four: About 25% done.
- No Blood For Business: On temporary hiatus. I hope to get back at after May.
Right, so thanks to a certain franchise that will not be named, I’m behind on my own writing.
Seriously behind. Like four and a half months behind.
So, today is the day that I get back on track. Here’s the plan:
- New chapters of The Uncanny X-Men and The Amazing Spider-Man before the end of December.
- Another preview chapter of STF: No Blood for Business will also be up before the end of December.
I’ll see you guys tomorrow with another update!
First preview chapter is up! Check it out below the cut!
Goooood morning everybody! Just a quick update on all my shenanigans.
So, I’ve spent the last two, three days playing Star Wars: Battlefront II, and oh man is it awesome. However, I also haven’t got a lot of writing down in that time, so there might be some delays-ish. Not sure if there will be or how much, just letting you know ahead of time.
On another note, due to all the recent trailers and t.v. spots, I feel it is time to do another Star Wars analysis. I’ll have it up for you later today.
See you later!
First one in a while, eh?
Just to recap, the Standard Tech Case Files title contest is over. The winner, by a landslide, is No Blood for Business. A huge thanks to all who participated!
Secondly, chapter seven of The Uncanny X-Men is live. Check it out here: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12008556/1/The-Uncanny-X-Men-Children-of-the-Atom There will be another chapter up this Sunday.
Speaking of updates, No Blood for Business is coming along swimmingly, but it won’t be released until at least early next year, and probably closer to April/May, mostly due to financial considerations. I will keep you updated, though, and you can expect a preview chapter this month.
On a final note, ground has been officially broken on my Spider-Man fanfiction. It’s part of the same universe as The Uncanny X-Men, and that first chapter should also be out this month.
Tune in next week, when I shall have even more goodies for you!
And the winner, by a landslide, is No Blood For Business!
Thanks to all those who participated and to those who didn’t, well, I hope you will next time!
On an unrelated note, stay tuned because the next chapter in The Uncanny X-Men will be up Sunday!
Yes it is!
Now remember, the contest comes in two parts.
Part One: you submit your title ideas to me through the comments section on these posts, or the messenger services on Facebook/Tumblr. You can also tweet them to me via Twitter.
Part Two: I take the suggestions I like best and put them in a poll which I will post here on WordPress! And then you get to vote on the titles you like best. The winner will receive copies of all four of my novels! Second and third place winners will get characters named after them!
Best of luck! I look forward to all your suggestions!
