The first chapter has been completely edited and begun undergoing final touches and revisions. It will definitely be released - at least in PDF format, within a week.

There are also plans to start posting everything in just text as well as the PDF uploads.

Alpha Version

The alpha version of chapter 1 was distributed to some selected readers today.

I am still distributing this to those who would like a copy. Note that some of the dialogue is not perfect and there are many grammatical errors. 

After they're done, it will be edited according to responses, please expect the full first chapter soon!

First Chapter - Second Draft and Cover Art Done!

Hi everyone who actually visits this blog,

So today is just another progress update. I managed to complete a second draft of the first chapter, it adds up to just a bit over 9000 words! The editor (and artist) happens to have some time this weekend because she cancelled her weekend revision classes. Though, I think she probably did so to finish school work, I'll pester her to get this chapter edited.

In other good news, she managed to finish the cover art today! And on the bad side? Her scanner isn't compatible with her computer....

Oh well, see you all next time!

First Chapter - Rough Draft Completed

All is the title says, the first draft for the first chapter, and the prologue have been completed. My editor is a bit busy with all her school work at the moment (she's only an editor as a side), so expect the release to take a while. In the mean time, I'll be fixing things up myself, adding things and working on a second draft in general.

So far, the word count for the first chapter + prologue adds up to ~7500

Note that everything would likely be posted in PDF form. Adobe reader can be downloaded for free here.
