Chapter 12 – Two Brothers

Author’s note: The final chapter of volume 2, answering some of life’s questions you have all been wondering about! Has been a great pleasure in writing this and hopefully we can look forward to even bigger and better things in volume 3!
I haven’t given it all away, but some of your questions have been answered!
Don’t forget, if you are interested in buying the ebook of volume 2, there is the extra chapter 8.5 from Chronix’s perspective of things. It is only a short, like the Christmas Special, but it may interest some of you. We also need more people to help out with the paperback copies, there is one order so far, so we only need nine more to be able to do it!
Also, I am thinking of repricing all my books to be $3.99, with the exception of the most current book to remain at $4.99 until the next volume is released, which will in turn be $4.99 until the next, etc… Alternatively maybe I should just drop them all to $3.99. Any thoughts on this? It appears the main negativity about my work seems to be the price.
Thank you for your time ^.^

Verde, Prince Charming, Fen and I left Leaz with the new letter of introduction. Although, it ended up in my hands after the prince simply discarded it.

“I have no need for a measly letter of introduction to an innkeeper.”

Those were his words, but it will definitely be useful later on, so I made sure to pick it up and store it in my inventory.

A little out of town, we stop inside a small clearing in a forest, the evening sun completely shaded by the foliage. Calling a break, we agree to log out and meet here again in an hour, after dinner.

Volume 2 is Live!

So since finishing chapter 11 on Friday, I have worked hard to finish both Chapter 12 – Two Brothers and Chapter 8.5 – Chronix’s Fury. With these two done at a speed which even scared me, I finished all the important bits and pieces with publishing the book, and sent it off directly to amazon for deliberation.

I woke up this morning to find it not only live, but there are people who have already found it! I complete turn around from volume 1 which took nearly a week before any sales happened.

Chapter 11 – Grael’s Lair

Authors Note: This chapter is a little shorter than normal, the next one will also be the same. It is only due to having to constrain book sizes. If I have them too large I can’t ship them internationally without charging like $20+ for postage alone. I really need to put this in the ebook for all the amazonians to read, most of my four start reviews appear to only be due to the books being shorter than the readers would have liked.
We also need more people to order copies of the paperback. If we can get 10 people we can ship it internationally (If we don’t there will be a link to the page for individual sales, but postage costs will be about $16 instead of $8)
Unfortunately I have worked over a hundred hours in the last week so I could not have the rest of volume 2 done by today, but there is going to be a mini bonus chapter in the ebook and paperback copy as well (A short from the perspective of Chronix and about him – we will be seeing more of that d-bag in the future)
Lastly, today is my birthday! Working hard for all you readers, I have seen lots of mentions of me on other sites which has been fantastic! Still waiting on WebFictionGuide.com to review my work so we can have a banner on TopWebFiction!
That is all. Happy Birthday to me ^.^

The dragon, Grael, has one eye open, its deep violet pupil fixated on me. A trickle of sweat rolls down my back as I feel I most definitely have its ‘aggro’. Although, Instead of being intimidated by my aura, it seems to be excited for a fight.

‘As if I would fight this thing!’

There are three exits in this circular grotto, excluding the one we entered from. Fortunately, one of the tunnels out is just a few meters behind us. Everyone is also aware of the exit, ready to flee. Prince Charming is completely pale in front of the dragon. Despite all his earlier bravado, when it came down to the moment, he clearly had nothing to show for it.

Chapter 10 – Leaz in Trouble!

Authors Note: Some of you will like the in depth about information about cooking, some of you will feel it is a bit much, This is a one time thing just to allow you to understand how detailed cooking in End Online is. Although, I must say, what a wonderful recipe it is. If you wanted to add it to your mother’s cook book, who could blame you, I’m sure she would be delighted to have it.
You can now get the paperback copy of End Online – Volume 1. Head over to the ‘Purchase the Book’ page for the details. The more orders we get, the cheaper it will be for everyone too!

I arrive at the north gate with Fen in mere minutes. Although unfortunately, it appears Verde is not here yet.

“Fen, please do at least try get along with her.”

I question whether the two of them in a party together was a good idea, but it should work out. My biggest worry is this girl in front of me, giving me a blank stare and refusing to answer.

Turning away from the look she is giving me, I notice Verde approaching from down the path

She is strangely wobbly on her feet, almost as if she is… Drunk.

“I-I’m here! *hic*” Verde is also talking a little loud, most definitely drunk

Chapter 9 – Wolf Girl

Author’s Note: I see I have made it to page 1 of the list of recommendations at bato.to thanks to Sensi’s comment. A warm welcome to all the new readers from bato.to! I actually tried to find that thread going from the forum home page for fun. I learnt that I am forum incompetent. ^.^’

Somehow, I am certain the person clinging onto my back is Fen. Yet, she should be a wolf. Since when could she transform into a human? Was it a new technique, like when she first began to use the ice attacks? Or has she always been able to?

Images of what the wolf look like in human form are flickering through my mind, trying to match up what little I could feel against my body to an image.

‘No. I should not think those things!’

Kickstarter is Live!

Author Note: Next chapter is scheduled for 2:00am GMT on the 9/1/15. Make sure you check your timezone to know when it is released for you!

The kickstarter has been approved and is now live!

In response to the feedback I have re uploaded the video, with a slight audio boost. Hopefully it should be enough!

I have also dropped to goal we need to achieve down to $5,000 instead of $10,000 in the aims that it will be easier to achieve.

As noted in the bonus section of the description, if we manage to raise a total of $50,000 or more, each reward will gain an extra volume of the digital and/or paperback copies. Depending on whether you have purchased a reward for the paperback copies.

Do bear in mind that this isn’t exactly possible as the less books I purchase for distribution, the more each costs me. You can follow the new and improved link to get to the live project, also you can also use it to let other people know how to get there. It is still a fresh page so it may take some time to appear in search engines if they simply go looking for it.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/684698588/end-online-the-novel

As for distribution onto your local bookshelves, I have been working on contacting first distributers and wholesalers within the US. The biggest issue is not having a US address that returns can be processed to. Hopefully I will be able to overcome this, and with a successful kickstarter be able to pay for a small corner in some warehouse to do that (If necessary)
