Sorry, no chapter for 2 weeks in a row.

I will definitely be making it up to you.  WITH AWESOME. But not yet.  I mean, I’ve been brainstorming the next 4 chapters and finally found the way I’ll be doing it, and the next chapter is 80% complete with content that I know a lot of people have been waiting for, the definitive answer to a question that has been running around people’s heads.

Not saying what it is, though.

The reason I have not finished that chapter?  I’ve been re-editing every chapter of SCDK for posting up on Royal Road Legends in between work hours and exhaustion.  I should be asleep right now but for my feelings of extreme guilt for not delivering for you guys.

…I also may need to make a quick flow chart with planning out my next chapters so I don’t leave anything out, the timeline needs to be right.  I think you guys know this by now, but I don’t do empty content.

Maoujanai Ch 2

Sorry for how late this is.  Had a busy week at work on top of winter storm conditions.  I had to park my car a block from my home and walk the rest of the way uphill wearing scrubs.  I walked through an ice storm wearing pajamas, people!  I’m earning my money!

So, yeah, draining week.  And I’m also fueling my drive for the next chapter, which will be so big I’ll have to divide it up like I did for Wheels Within Wheels.  I’ll have some back to back days off in the future and hopefully I’ll make progress at that time.

In the mean time, I was able to wrestle up some silliness, and write Maoujanai chapter 2.  Enjoy!

Oh. And Stop Calling Me A Demon King has posted 9 chapters on Royal Road Legends, and already gone from 5000th place to 380th, with 4.72 / 5 Stars.  I dunno if that’s a testament to my writing or a condemnation of the average submission to that website, but I BE HAPPY!

SCDK Christmas Special

Good morning everyone, and Merry Christmas.  I’m a firm believer of equality.  And if Star Wars can have a Christmas Special, then Stop Calling Me A Demon King can have one as well!

Read it here, ya plebs, and share it out loud with all your precious family as well!  They won’t understand it, but you’ll still be amused!

In other news, I’m now hosted on Royal Road, on Web Fiction Guide, and on Web & Light Novels.  So, that’s three web sites dedicated to informing people about original fiction.  If you guys feel like it, please drop in on one or more of those sites and leave some good words or glowing reviews.  I mean, it’s Christmas.  What else are you gonna do, spend your time with your family?

And, as always, the Patreon readers got the link and password to the new chapter a day early, so they’ve been partying since Christmas Eve!  Don’t you wish you could be partying with the cool kids?  You can if you back me on Patreon!  Seriously, it’s 4 bucks a month, max.  That’s less than your coffee, and it’s going to someone who’s actually putting effort into their job.  Damn lazy bean jockeys…

Dear Royal Road

If you’re not Royal Road Legends, then it’s fine to ignore this post. It will be deleted when my account over there is verified.

EDIT: Instead of deleting this post, I’ve decided that I’ll just be saying, I have been approved by Royal Road Legends, and now have SCDK being published on their we site as well.

Check it out HERE.  Leave a nice review, or a basting tongue lashing, I have no control over you, Internet-At-Large!

SCDK Ch 24

Alright!  Chapter 24 is released!  Now, quick explanation. I had the brain storm that people were able to just bypass my previous method of keeping SCDK chapters from being viewed by non-Patreon Backers early by not providing links to it by just using a search engine with the right key words.  So now, every release is password protected for one day for the Patreon Backers to get first crack at reading the releases, because they are special and unique snowflakes.  They deserve at least that much preferential treatment for giving me money for my extensive labors in writing.

Link is HERE if you don’t want to hear why the last two weeks have been horrible, and how I worked hard to write this last chapter, which is double sized.

So, I think people remember that last week I was sick.  The third sickest I’ve been in my life.  Took over a week for me to be able to be on my feet.  Well, after I recovered, my city got hit by the Big Freeze.  My city is very well landscaped, as in, tons of trees everywhere, growing unchecked.  Every single plant surface was covered with a quarter inch of ice in the first day, meaning every blade of grass was suddenly a half inch thick.  Lawns looked like they had dreadlocks.

So what happened from all this frost?  Trees across the city started falling apart.  Entire roads were blocked off and the entire south side of the city lost power for a full day.  I live on the south side of the city.  It was a very special treat navigating streets covered in the wreckage of entire trees in the black of night with no street lights.  By the time I took my third detour to read the main southern thoroughfare I had a line of cars behind me, like ducklings, having me navigate them to their homes.

So, I was unable to write for two days.  Then, immediately after a good night’s sleep in a power resupplied home, guests from out of town arrived with their 4 kids.  Three of them were little shits who took a liking to me.  And by that, I mean I kept them entertained, so they constantly bothered me, and I couldn’t get any writing done because of the little shitholes.

They also stole my Little Debbies candy stash!  Even after being told not to!  I will rip that little fucker’s head off if I ever see him again!

AND I lost my favorite scarf, a gift from my mother, made of the only wool I can bear having against my skin, cashmere, because I was roped into escorting the little shits to GameStop for them to buy games, and I was so vigilant on keeping an eye on the straggling little bastards that I didn’t feel it falling off.

And that was after it took an hour for them to choose games.  Indecisive little fucking shitballs!

So I couldn’t get to writing until after the loud as fuck little dickweeds went to sleep, and stayed up until 2 in the morning writing the first half of the chapter, on a work night, and then I was up until 2 am last night finishing the second half, because I sure as hell wasn’t going to have another week without a release.  You guys deserve better than that!

So, I guess what I’m saying is.  Praise the Baka. Much writings. So dedication.

So yeah.  If this has given you any insight into what I have to overcome to bring you guys quality fiction, maybe Backing me on Patreon wouldn’t be out of the question.
