Quick Update!

Hiya, everybody! I just wanted to give you guys a quick update. I've been considerably quiet lately, which is by no means due to neglecting my account or something, I've just been very busy.

So! TFR 6 is coming along very well. I have enough written to tell you, it will be kind of unique in comparison to the other books in the series. Obviously, TFR 5 had a very "grand finale" ending and I want to live up to that by making TFR 6 just as *subjectively* good.

I have just passed the halfway mark about a week ago. Here's what I can tell you about the book for now (spoiler-free, of course):

  • It will be another long one! I have an estimated end at about sixty-six chapters. Editing can make that number larger or smaller, as I end up splitting and merging a lot of chapters to make them a more decent length and/or easier to read.

 

  • Its plot is a little different. Whereas the first few TFR books had a lot of buildup followed by a big ending, this book will have very suspenseful and mysterious arcs that drag on, putting random spikes of action and shock throughout the entire book.

 

  • Are you tired of my timeskips? They've ranged from a couple of weeks to months between books. TFR 6 picks up just two days after TFR 5. This may seem minor, but it was very different on my end, and a pleasant change of pace.

 

  • While there aren't a lot of new characters, you will be able to learn more about characters you're familiar with and hopefully like by now. Timbur and Thundur finally get more to their backstory, for example, while Nagiri finally gets the spotlight for a while.

 

  • Just like all the TFRs this far, you will be able to see new places, new enemies, and new ideas. There are also new creatures, one of which I CANNOT wait for you to see! It took a lot of failed designs to get where it is now.

I hope these little teasers have gotten you interested. I'm honestly so excited, I've been thinking of releasing a short "demo" of what the book may look like. What do you think? Let me know in a comment, quickee, or pm!

 

Thanks, and happy writing! :)

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

 

My role as a reader:  I'm pretty busy organizing my own chaos on here, especially with constant writer's block, and I'm so easily overwhelmed/depressed/stressed that reading has become kind of a hassle. I try, though when I do, comments are scarce. Still, if you want feedback on a good poem or short story, I'll be happy to help there.

My role as a writer:  Yes, my writing is amateur, but my imagination is not! I'll write shortstories or poems as side-projects, as well as "Twisted Souls", but the majority of my time is spent writing my series 'The Forsaken Race.' (TFR for short). This is a fantasy book series inspired by my crazy imagination and love of anime. 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.

 

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.

3: TFR is rated "Mature." It has strong language, gore, and what I guess some people call "traumatic content" (idk, haha). 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 don't approve of PC things, or other moves that ruin a series' characters, settings, messages, or overall story.

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 than before. so if you read my stories once before and didn't like it, then I encourage you to come back and try again later. You may just find yourself surprised! And of course, I ALWAYS encourage you to criticize me.
