Because I'm an idiot, I forgot I already had a subtitle for Book 4:

Ups & Downs.

A (Not So) Healthy Dose of Chaos -- Book 4 || Progress Report #2

Book Four: First Draft Progress
0% 100%

The first draft of book four is about 88% complete.  The last hurdle has been slow going, due to adjustments at work, taking a new college course, and just plain old being tired.  There are also passages that need to be re-written because I'm not fully satisfied with them.

I'm shooting for the end of February for a release date.

I haven't completely decided on a subtitled, but I'm leaning toward Truth and Consequences.  That may change if I get a better idea.

The covers for books one and two will change to suit the new format of book three.

Things still remaining to do:

  • Commissioning the cover.
  • The usual planet guide.
  • At least two recipes.
  • At least two interludes.
Here's hoping you're looking forward to it!

A (Not So) Healthy Dose of Chaos -- Book 4 || Progress Report

Book Four: First Draft Progress
0% 100%

I didn't realize I hadn't updated the blog in over half a year.  Sigh . . .

Anyway, the first draft of book four in the Chaos series is 50% complete.  I still have yet to come up with a subtitle for it.  Right now, the series is in the Truth and Consequences story arc.

Some questions that will be answered include:

  • Are any members of any tenants'families going to come to visit?
  • Is there a conference for landlords?
  • Is Ken going to officially be dubbed a knight of Kisstil?  Will he get to visit Matrona's planet?
  • What is Matrona's space-time manipulation "specialty?"
  • What is Alisa building in her garage?  And what's more, will we see it in action?
  • Re-contracting is coming up.  Will that mean a shakeup in the number of tenants?  Will the tenants want to re-contract, considering what is going on?
  • If something big concerning a battle appears and the tenants are involved and injured, how will he really react?
  • If Silver is Ken's teacher, does that mean Silver also has a teacher?

In other words, the usual dose of chaos.

A (Not So) Healthy Dose of Chaos: Memory Lane -- Now on Sale!

Memory Lane is now on sale, and has been via Smashwords since January 1st.  I was notified about Premium Distribution earlier today, so it should be making its way to Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo and the like soon.

It's also available on Amazon, and Lulu.  I will be trying to open up an account on Drivethrufiction this weekend, but since I'm in the midst of a cold, we'll have to see.

I also have to re-do the covers for books one and two, to match the format of book three's cover.  The print version will be forthcoming, when I format the cover correctly.

A (Not So) Healthy Dose of Chaos: Memory Lane -- Progress Report #6

Well, I've ordered a proof copy of book three after finishing the next-to-last draft.  It should arrive by the end of the week.

It's better if I see it in print to do the final editing.  Then I'll do the eBook version.

All-in-all, book three should be ready by the end of the year.

I still plan to do the live stream.

A (Not So) Healthy Dose of Chaos: Memory Lane -- Progress Report #5

The fourth draft is almost completed.

There are a couple if items that I needed to clear up, such as some character descriptions, and some exposition.

The cover will also change from what was shown before.

I'm also thinking of doing a little release event, maybe on Twitch.  For it, I was considering playing some retro games while answering some questions, etc.

Let me know what you all think.
