Author has written 32 stories for Shining Force, Riviera, Golden Sun, Misc. Games, Nostalgia, and Xenoblade Chronicles.
The opener for Part 2 of "Shining Cloud", chapter 13, is up on schedule. With Part 2, the scope of the plot and the cast of characters both greatly widen, and so we start off by taking a little break from Hindel and Iom. I'll say no more... Please read, enjoy, and review!
The grand finale of Part 1 of "Shining Cloud" is now up! Luckily I was feeling pretty inspired these past couple weeks, or I doubt I could have finished this massive chapter in time. My main struggle with the chapter was actually deciding how much I needed to include and how much I could postpone for later in the novel in order to keep this chapter from being bloated. An awful lot happens at once, and there was absolutely no way I could reflect on it all without making the chapter too long. So yeah, if you feel "Shining Cloud" hasn't had enough action, conflict, new characters, catharsis, spellcasting, and character deaths, then this chapter's for you. :)
Oh, and in a slight modification of my earlier announcement, the publication schedule for this novel is shifting down to monthly for the time being. I've just fallen too far behind on things, but I hope to go back to a bi-weekly schedule on New Year's Day 2016.
We now have chapter 11 of "Shining Cloud" up, per schedule. Among a lot of other things, there's plenty of setup for the big finale to Part 1 next chapter. As always, please read, enjoy, and review!
Chapter 10 of "Shining Cloud" is up on schedule! Also, a bit of a heads up. Since I've been losing some of my lead on this novel, and since even some of my readers seem to be struggling to keep up, and since a longer pause between the end of Part 1 and the beginning of Part 2 seems dramatically appropriate, between chapters 12 and 13 there will be a one month wait instead of two weeks. No worries; while I may ultimately have to switch to a monthly schedule, we won't be at that point for a while yet.
To Anyone Who has had their Fiction Reviewed by Me:
If you updated your story a while ago and still haven't received a review from me on the new chapter(s), don't be afraid to nudge me with a little PM. Unless I specifically said in my last review that I may not be continuing to read your fic, then I do want to read and review that new chapter. I sometimes lose track of the stories I'm reading here, so every now and then a reminder may be in order.
If you're here to thank me for giving your story constructive criticism, please go ahead and drop me a PM. Also, take heart: I've noticed that every writer who has thanked me for my criticism has continuously improved in their quality of writing. And no, it's not because of my criticism (though that does help a little bit). It's because they're open to the idea that aspects of their writing can be improved.
To Anyone Who has Read any of my Fics:
Do not under any circumstances hesitate to review. I welcome any sort of feedback. Criticism, even non-constructive criticism, is just one more way to see how people feel about my work, which is essential for a writer.
