Cover Volume 4 here!

Currently, the workings of Volume 4 are going well, though I’m a bit greedy and want to work a bit more before starting releasing it. But as I wanted to share at least something, I remembered that I still haven’t shown the cover of volume 4! So here it is, I hope you like it.

Textless Cover

Doesn’t Kenta looks like a boss here? Like: I’m surrounded by women, but who cares!

This is also the first appearance of Rine on a Mio-Chan-made cover, as there was no time to make a revise of the cover of Volume 2 so far. But maybe soon… Well, first volume 4 artwork, then we look how the time-table is faring.

Had no luck so far to find someone to make status-boxes, I guess I need to look elsewhere.

OK, that’s for now, still hoping to start releasing during July. But when I start, the chapter-parts will come in weekly. 😉

 

EDIT: Ah, also, I’ve updated the skill-encyclopedia and added summaries of volume 2 and 3 under “Misc/Synopsis,” so that everyone who wants to remember what happens don’t need to re-read everything (though they’re welcome to).

Kenta’s new character-design

Hey there, things are going well. This weekend I’m at one of the largest cons of my country, therefore I won’t be able to work much on the novel, though it doesn’t mean, that I others won’t.

Progress is fine, soon volume 4 will start to be released.

As a little teaser: Check-out the header of this post for a small glimpse at how the cover will look like (too many characters, too little space for a header), while checking out Kenta in his new gear and [Class]!

Anniversary Special

Hey there, it’s been a year since I started releasing this story. Let’s celebrate it with an Extra, which will be put at the end of volume 4, but is already readable here.

I added a WordPress-page of Volume 4, there is also a synopsis. But too bad, that the cover isn’t finished yet, we worked much on the new character-designs, for Kyou only a colored version is missing (choosing color schemes for Kyou is always a challenge, as she has more sense of fashion than I have, so I ask around the female authors of my RRL-Group about that).

Current state is: I have one PR, which is now working on the Extras of volume 3 and has started volume 4, I’m halfway through the Edited and PRed version of volume 1, have finished the alpha-draft of volume 5, and I’m trying writing a volume 5.5 (stories about the side-characters like Inoue and his “Superfriends”, etc.) while also writing volume 6.

The break of releases gives me a peace of mind so that I can concentrate on other stuff, while still putting some “behind the scene”-effort into the story.

Also, added 3 posts for my $2 supporters on Patreon. 😉

Well, have fun with the Extra. 😀

Volume 3 – Chapter 5-1

And here we have the first of two parts of volume 3. The fights are intense, but so are the combatants and now we need to see who will win! Too bad that one side is cheating…

The progress on the new chapters is slow again, but I have a plan how this should not happen during volume 4. But I need to revisit my draft first and… well, I have a lot to do. But at least the work of DRAFT on my first chapters started and I think they do a good job, especially considering that I became their customer before they started charging. I will need to change a few things for style and phrasing reasons (as they don’t know the characters as well as I do), but it’s pretty solid and will be a first step towards the plan to conquer even more sites.

I can’t tell exactly when the final chapter-part is coming, but I hope it’ll be around next weekend. But it will conclude the climax!

Please vote on TWF! Just takes a moment, no account or anything else, but it’ll help this story’s publicity.

 

EDIT: I totally forgot! On the Novel Update Forum (NUF) is a group called the NUF book club. They look at free English stories and try to make people more aware of great English stories.

I want to thank Solracmar who nominated this fiction for the voting for a more depth review (even after he had a chance to re-nominate a work that wasn’t chosen for the last voting, instead of this one, he voted: “Ok I am going to keep i hate being wed in a fantasy world! . I like the other but well I think this one is more unique.”, and LifeFrog to second the nomination.

And I also want to thank polokoi, Sproutling, robsause115, gunmim & Natsume for their votes thus far. If you’re a member of NUF and want to help this fiction, go to this thread, ask to become a member of the club and vote here for “I hate being wed in a fantasy world!”.

Even though it’ll be hard to overtake all these other good stories, maybe there will be a miracle… xD

Volume 3 – Chapter 3-1

Merry Christmas 2016

Merry Christmas 2016

And here we are, the first part of chapter 3. In this volume are 5 chapters, so we’re somewhere in the middle right now. I hope you’ll enjoy it. And I want to say extra thanks to MioChin for presenting me with this image. 😉

Please don’t forget to vote on TWF! Takes only a moment and you don’t need an account. Those who already did, you can refresh your vote, because it’ll only last a week otherwise.

I don’t know, whether I’m able to post the next (and final part) of chapter 3 around New Year or if I have to wait for a while. Hard to say in the holiday season.

Happy Holidays and also a Happy New Year!

Volume 03 – Chapter 2-3

And the final part of the chapter is out! After meeting Ara’ainn, we start to get to know her a bit better.  I hope you like her as much as I do.

Atm I’m thinking about changing the story to past tense, it’d be a greater rewrite, but maybe it’ll be easier to read then? Well, I’m still considering, so if you have a something to say, please comment. And/or take the vote here.

I try to get the first part of Chapter 3 out on Christmas, but there is no guarantee here. It’s one of the longer ones, after all.

Volume 3 – Chapter 2-2

Here is the second of three parts of chapter 2, introducing the girl on the cover, and her species in general.

This time we were actually kinda quick, hope that we can keep this speed up, even though Christmas is coming. Hope that Santa gives me a Writing Bot with integrated vocabulary and Grammar checker.

We got there this time, the Top15 on TWF! Thanks for your support and I hope that you continue it. Therefore: Please vote on TWF, doesn’t require an account or more than a moment. You can also vote on multiple stories.

I hate wed in the TWF Top 15!

Let’s see when the final part of this chapter comes. I want to make it happen next week, but maybe this almost fast release is just a fluke. ^^’

Volume 3 – Chapter 1-1

And we finally have it. When working with multiple people it’s hard to match timetables, especially if you try it within your free-time and live on other ends of the globe.

Not much to say here, a bit of insight what happened until the day the third volume starts and how the story of the prologue turned out. Here we have an image right from the get-go, but there are only 3 black-white images planned for the volume and it’ll take some time until we get to the next.

Next time we set the beginning of the next goal and we look what happened behind poor Kenta’s back. 😉

EDIT: Nobody told me, that the story was finally included in Top Weekly Fictions, so: Please vote on Top Weekly Fiction, takes only a moment. Don’t need an account or something like that, but it’ll boost the story’s publicity.

Volume 1 – Prologue Edited

While it may not excite you as much as a new chapter, at least I got the first Prologue edited. But before I get into this, first about the next chapter (Volume 3, Chapter 1-1).

The current state is: Draft completed, overhauled, artwork done, editing in process. Seems like TheDarkLink has much on his hands and the part is slightly longer than others, so while he works in his freetime there, it’s still not at a state of being released. Now that I have an editor, I like to put him at work as well.

But in November a new one might join the team, so I hope that things will get better then. And until that moment, I concentrate on some stuff like the alpha-draft of volume 5, working MioChin to get the next artworks done, and preparing some things around the story (like a map, more status screens, etc.).

And while I’m sorry about the delay, I don’t plan to rush things for now. For those who can’t wait, here a bit of a spoiler, if you haven’t already seen it: You can take a look at the new artwork here.

Now on to the edited prologue: We started it during a break and after Dreen got another look, it was somewhat finished some time ago, still lacking a last overview. But since editing the new chapter takes so long, I wanted to share at least something with you, so here it is.

In general, I make a lot of my formatting so that I have at least trouble as possible while writing. But that doesn’t always look good. So now I have actually put some effort in making actual tables here, in RRL they are even colored (well, mostly because it doesn’t work too well with wordpress).

I also put some images on that, the Lion’s Ring and Kenta’s lineart face during this time. The actual character-design (already put it in Volume 2 Prologue, you can see it there or here) is mostly about Kenta after he get his hair cut, so I put only the long haired version in it.

The content is practically the same, but I added some more sentences into it, taking into account what you, the reader, let me know about the part. So now there is, for axample, a bit more of an explanation, why Kenta tries out the rings, taking the almost non-existence risk of being cursed. 😉

Well, have a nice week, I hope as much as you, that the new chapter is finished soon. ^^’
