Fabled Kingdom: Book 8of10 + Other News

FK-cv-v1-3
 
The Fabled Kingdom book, Book 8of10, is now available on Smashwords. This is for book3, chapters 16-17 (of 21), and is available for USD$1.69 to read in PDF, EPUB or just plain HTML format.

Apart from that, I’ve not had any time to work on “Fabled Kingdom” this week – in fact, I have decided to suspend work on “Fabled Kingdom” for the month of June. This is because of the avalanche of work that’s been happening this month, that involves:

Massive June2016 Blowout:
1) The launch of “The BentoNet” on the 25th June. It’s finally here, folks!
2) The launch of “The BentoNet” library buying program. I’m already working on that for Ashfield Library!
3) My first art exhibition on the 25th June. Getting prints and frames done!
4) My second art exhibition on the 4th July. Prints done, doing frames myself.
5) Being special guest at Continuum 2016, a sci-fi con next weekend. See the sidebar!
6) Being special guest at Supanova Sydney, the weekend after. See the sidebar!
7) Getting the first 3 chapters of book 3 copy edited.

I’m really excited about doing art exhibitions for the first time, but the preparation work is unbelievable. It’s really time-consuming, and I don’t want to do a sub-par job on either my art exhibitions or on “Fabled Kingdom”. It’s a good thing I’m getting the first 3 chapters of book 3 copyedited right now, because this is the crucial home stretch, and copyediting at this stage can help spot logical errors and story errors before I do the last 4 chapters.

For that reason, I will have to delay the release of “Fabled Kingdom” v3 for up to 4 months, meaning that book 3 will be available in April 2016. I’m disappointed, but it’s for the better.

Cover for Book 3 of “Fabled Kingdom”!

Hi all! Long time no update – I’ve been busy, and this weekend, I’ll be heading off to ComicGong in Wollongong. Check the sidebar for more details on that – it’s going to be my first time at this con, so it’ll be interesting.

Fabled Kingdom v3: Well, here’s the cover. It’s a departure from the first 2 books (hey, it’s daytime!), but I like it. It may have a few changes before going to print, but it’s unlikely they’ll be big. Progress-wise, book 3 is still scheduled for December 2016, and I’ve currently finished Chapter 17 (out of 21). So, 4 more chapters left until the end!

Chapter 14-15 of “Fabled Kingdom” is out now!

Well, well. This has arrived quicker than I thought. I’ve powered into book 3 of “Fabled Kingdom,” and I have about 6 chapters to go. I’m halfway through Chapter 16 as we speak. SInce book 3 is due at the end of this year (December 2016), I’ve certainly got plenty of time to do the book. Books 1-3 of “Fabled Kingdom” is a self-contained story, so it’ll be neat to get it done and out!

Chapter 14-15 of “Fabled Kingdom” is out as a PDF: You can buy it on Smashwords. It’s an odd book because Chapter 14 belongs to book 2, while Chapter 15 belongs to book 3. Either way, it doesn’t matter. Interestingly enough, SW has also upped

Working the Self-Publishing Tutorials: I’m SLOOOOWLY getting this done, and SLOOOOWLY putting up a bunch of tutorials on DeviantArt. I’m doing a self-publishing workshop on Saturday the 13th February 2016 for the Sydney Comics Guild, which is from 11:30-1:30pm at ArtSHINE gallery near Central Station. It’s an “Intro to self-publishing” workshop, so it’ll be pretty basic, but valuable to those who may not know much about the subject.

Attending ACAF: As you may know, I’m currently working on an online retail hub for comics, and I’ll be showing the system off at the Australian Comic Arts Festival. The ACAF is at the Novotel Canberra, and runs from the 20-21st February. I’ll be there talking on a number of panels, but most of all showing off the BentoNet, the name of my system.
