A New Story, and More To Come!

Hiya! I hope you are all having a good day and/or night.

I have lots of good news! After getting a very unexpected, very random inspiration, I've written a new story that's very different from my usual work. Because it is so different, much like TFR 6, I don't know how it will be received, so please let me know if you decide to read it. The new story is a Cyberpunk story, called "Neurobellum: The Brain Wars." Even though it ran a little on the longer side, copping out around 4,800 words, it's a short story. 

I would like to say that I'm also continuously updating the "Meet The Characters!" catalog. Corelia's page was just posted a couple of weeks ago, and in just a couple of days, I'll have the page of the demon king himself up. Hopefully, you'll drop by to see some awesome art and fun facts.

I've also thought about posting another story. It's a very fun crossover, involving my characters and a classic story that everybody knows...I wouldn't want to spoil the surprise just yet, but those who know my side works (or read my profile page) can probably guess. Here's the basic info: it's one book with seventeen chapters, and each chapter is relatively short. I was originally going to post it on Wattpad only, but if there's any interest, I'll post it here too. I will say, while I've greatly limited spoilers, it will inherently spoil the ending of the first TFR book. If that doesn't deter you, I think I did good at explaining the TFR themes, so there's no confusion. It's largely just for fun descriptions, an original take on the classic story, and -of course- plenty of laughs. If you're interested in seeing this, or you want more information, please let me know in a comment, quickee, or pm!

So, in conclusion, please check out "Neurobellum" if you're interested, please keep an eye out for new characters to meet in the catalog, and please let me know about this crossover story! 

 

Thanks, and happy writing! :)

Ladies and gentlemen, one and all, welcome to my profile page! I am Raven Akuma; the nerdy, metalhead, dark-minded writer. It's nice to meet 'ya all!

 

My role as a reader: My schedule has opened up lots, so I'll be able to get back into reading. Let me at it!

My role as a writer: Yes, my writing is amateur, but my imagination is not! I'll write short stories or poems as side-projects, but the majority of my time is spent writing my series "The Forsaken Race" (TFR for short). I started planning this series a few years back, put it to page two years ago, and I haven't stopped since! Nor do I plan to until I see this series published as a manga at the very least.

 

What is "The Forsaken Race" series?

"The Forsaken Race" is an anime-stylized story, set in a chaotic original world. It primarily falls under the "high fantasy" category, but it also has elements of classic Tolkein fantasy, dystopian fantasy, and even traditional folklore (from many different cultures). There is a lot to it, admittedly, but it's paced in a way that's easy to understand.

 

Tips for reading my book(s):

1: some minor things are always subject to change, so if you go back and notice I replaced some words in a description, please don't be surprised. The story itself is always intact.

2: I use double-spaced paragraphs to move between dreams/visions/flashbacks. I use \\\\\ to switch POV, or for dramatic time skips.

3: TFR is rated "Mature." It has strong language and gore, so if you're a sensitive reader, beware.

 

I can ensure anybody that I will never sell out in any way just for more attention; I stick to what I have. I'm not targeting some audiences over others, I'm hopefully making my own and catering to it.

I will say that I enjoy experimenting with my style of writing, though. Sometimes it comes out well, other times not. In the end, though, I try to make sure everything comes out better. If you find a spot in my stories you don't like, if you're willing to press on, you may just find yourself surprised! And of course, I ALWAYS encourage you to criticize me.
