Wandering Fortunes chapter 6: Friends of a Feather, and the story cover!

Yes! We finally have the cover for Wandering Fortunes, and it looks amazing! First, the new chapter can be read here. And for the cover…

Drawn by my talented friend Daimyo-Koikoi, we have our protagonists here, plus a couple shadows… And, of course, Top is being mischievous.

I can finally replace that drawing of Top I’d been using as a placeholder. Also as a reminder, my Patreon has chapters go up early for patrons. Chapter 7 will go up in mid-June. They even got to see the cover early!

Smashwords Interview

Some three years after the feature was introduced, I made an interview for myself on Smashwords. Because I like talking about myself, but I really like responding about myself, which for the most part is what I did. Only a few questions I typed in myself since they were specifically related to the Duth Olec persona or I thought it would be useful. Eleven questions right now, I dunno what the limit is but I’ll probably just add another each month or a few when an event takes place.

Darmenzi is coming! Changes are here!

They’re gonna need all the help they can get to fend off this disaster. The events in the story, I mean. Not the book itself.

On April Fool’s Day, it won’t be a joke: chapter 1 will be available! And I do mean chapter; unlike Slubes, Darmenzi is divided into chapters. A brief glimpse at the list can be seen at the new page for the book.

Along with that, I’ve updated a bunch of the character, location, and species pages to accurately reflect changes in the Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos since I’ve gotten an editor. List of changes include:

-Excerpts on character pages removed (the novel is readable on here anyway!)
-Title of “mayor” changed to “merag”
-Removed information on the demon supposedly trapped underground (this plot point will actually be removed from the final version of Slubes)
-Changed name of location Mt. Dynamo to Mt. Chiphus
-Edited description of Reptibia Rainforest to focus on the plants
-Added mention of forest around Spiest Manor
-Changed name of ostrich species to stroo-Changed name of turtle species to kasdde
-Changed name of chameleon species to Verk’lon
-Edited these species articles to reflect changes
-Updated quoted species appendix listings from Slubes for species articles
-Made note of the name of slube cartilage-like structure, kotli
-Alphabetized species listing

Later this month I might go through and do some more edits. Some of this stuff I wrote just now, including the summary for Darmenzi, so it might could use some work. Tomorrow will mark another big day, as well, for it is when I will be revamping my Patreon.

(P.S. The font used for the Darmenzi title is Lycanthrope from Sinister Visions)

Slubes Cover Art and Beginning Excerpt!

Oh gosh! The cover art for Slubes is finished!

Slubes

Drawn by my friend Eli Manning Hedgington Somename Bock! Wee! It’s less ephemeral now!

I’m going to make it even further less un-non-ephemeral by posting the beginning of the novel!
Nonsense ahoy!
