New Cover Art

Inspiration struck, and I found myself whipping together new covers for the next two stories in my Exemplar Universe. You can view them below. Worth noting the titles on the cover images are working titles. They may or may not stick.

Have a delightfully demented night,

Kruhl Delay

Sorry, I’ve been working a lot of overtime lately and haven’t quite been able to polish this weeks serial part. I’m hoping to get it out sometime Sunday, but it could be pushed back until Monday or later.

Have a delightfully demented night,

Daniel A. Wolfe

PS The above image is pretty close to how a protagonist in a future Exemplar Universe will look. She actually will be making an appearance in the Fall of Kruhl, but let’s just say ‘she’ looks very different at this point in the storyline.

Happy belated Thanksgiving (and a quick note)

I’d just like to take a moment to wish everyone a happy belated Thanksgiving. I hope it was a good one. In the spirit of Thanksgiving I would like to thank everyone for reading, commenting and assisting me over the years. Most especially, the late Holly Happy Heart, Morpheus, The Rev. Anam Chara, Zapper, Enemyoffun, Loki, Maggie Finson, Beyogi, Djkauf and so many countless others. Many of these people provided valuable feedback and much needed grammatical corrections throughout the years (or allowed a fledgling TG writer to play in their backyard) and without their help it’s likely many of my stories would never have seen the light of day.

Thank you all.

 

On a related note, I will not be posting a serial part this week. I’ve yet to finish final edits for the most recent part due to the holiday and I won’t be able to complete them before next week. Rest assured you can count on reading your regularly scheduled dose of the Fall of Kruhl next Saturday.

 

Thank you and have a delightfully demented holiday weekend,

 

Daniel A. Wolfe

 

 

All that being said,

What’s Next?

Yay! I finally completed the last few parts of the Virtually Twisted rewrite and hey it only took me six years to finish this thing off. Okay, so five years and ten and a half months, but whose counting? Yes, that right, I starting this thing back in October 2013, way back before this website even existed! Seems almost like yesterday.

So, exactly how many parts are left, you ask? Part thirty-seven and part thirty-eight (aka the epilogue) still need to be edited and posted here on the website, but that’s it. I’m rather pleased with how it turned out, but I’ll let you folks be the judge of that. Sometime in the coming weeks, I’ll see about having someone comb through it one final time for grammar errors and get this thing posted to all the usual places.

After that… Well, you probably noticed the ‘Featured Image’ for the post and put two and two together, but I’ll just go ahead and said it outright just so everyone is on the same page. Previously, I stated that I was leaning toward another Twisted Universe Story, but after spending so long entrenched in another person’s story universe, I’m itching to work on something of my own. As such, my next project will be a new entry in my Exemplar Universe, the Fall of Kruhl. At one point, the title was going to be the Rise and Fall of Kruhl, but the short title has a better ring and truth be told the Rise comes after the Fall and doesn’t happen until the end of the story. This Tale is set in Amelia van den Broeke’s home town of Tondzaosha, Idaho and picks up pretty much where the prologue to Psyren’s Redemption left off. Part of the story will revolve around Amelia and her past and the other part will revolve around a girl in her late teens who shows up in Tondzaosha, half dead, dragging a massive broadsword and calling herself Kruhl. What initially seems to be an open and closed case ends up becoming a battle for the survival of an entire town as power from another world is unleashed upon the denizens of Tondzaosha. There will probably be a cameo from Sapphira, but she will not play a very large part in the story.

It might be a bit spoiler-ific to say this, but the cover art pretty much gives it away anyways so what the hell? Kruhl’s transformation will involve a change to a seven-foot tall Anthropomorphic Lion (a furry) to a rather small human woman (under five-feet). BTW, the proportions on the cover art are to scale, at least in regards to Kruhl not quite so much with the sword, but that’s something for which I hope you’ll forgive me.

Speaking of the cover, I decided to go with something a little more work-safe. Partially this is because one of the websites I post stories to wants only work safe images on their main page and partially it’s because I wasn’t entirely satisfied with the original cover art I created for the story. Additionally, I think it complements the cover art for Psyren’s Redemption rather well.

I have started writing bits and pieces of the Fall of Kruhl, but at the moment I don’t have enough finished to post even one part. Altogether I’ve written something like 2000 words, but mainly that the start of about four different scenes and half of those are probably getting discarded. That being said I want to have at least three parts completely down before the serialization of Kruhl begins. I should be able to do that before I finish posting Virtually Twisted, but I’ve been wrong before.

For those hoping for a Legacy of Earth update, I don’t have much to comment on other than that progress is slow. I haven’t written on it much lately, but plan to spend some time on it after Kruhl is underway.

Well, that more or less sums everything up. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the ending to Virtually Twisted.

Have a delightfully demented night,

The Bad and the Good

The sewer in my basement has backed up… again! Fortunately, I managed to catch it pretty early and nothing important inside the house is damaged, but I did have to go to the laundromat to wash all the clothes that got sewage on them… NOT FUN! The last time it backed up, a lot of stuff got thrown out and nothing important is stored down there. Unfortunately, this time the back up was caused by the main sewer line collapsing. Which means I can’t use my toilet or shower or really use any running water at this point. I took off work to deal with this mess, and have had to run to a nearby store to make use of the facilities. The one good thing, at least for me, is that I rent and it my landlord who is paying for the repairs.

In other news, I did find a job and it will come with a bit of pay bump. I will be starting at the beginning of April so at least I have that going for me. On that note, I may have to change my posting schedule for the weekly serial to evenings instead of mornings. I would prefer to keep it as is, but my new work schedule is going to make that fairly difficult, but I will have to cross that road when I come to it.

On a side note, I split parts 7 and 8 of Virtually Twisted into two different posts just for better link consistency.

My Plans & Poll Results

You may view the original poll here.

First, I’d just like to thank everyone who participated in the previous poll. It’s been a couple weeks, okay well, more like four, but who’s counting? Before I discuss my plans, why don’t we take a look at the poll results?

The one story which really surprised me was that Appetite for Seduction, the Hunger Pangs sequel, seemed so popular, but I given that I received two messages about it after the previous poll perhaps it shouldn’t. The big disappointment for me was that there seemed to be so little interest in Legend of Morgana, but that’s why I did this so that I could get a better idea of what people wanted to read. I know, I know, write for yourself, but part of the reason I write is because I want to share what I’m creating with others. Why write something if no one wants to read it?

What then does that mean for my plans?

I still intend to write Legend of Morgana, but it’s been pushed down on my list of priorities. The clear favorite was A Rock & A Hard Place and that is what holds the most interest at the moment. I’ve already written the first 1000 words, and I believe I have a good foundation to get me started. At the moment, I’m mainly focused on finishing Virtually Twisted, but once I’m finished with that I plan to begin serious work on A Rock & A Hard Place and continue with Legacy of Earth. I plan to write a minimum of 1000 words a week of the former and spend the rest of my time each week on the latter.

I think that should about do it, as always thank you for reading and be sure to have a delightfully demented day,

Daniel A. Wolfe

P.S. I plan to post the first part of the Virtually Twisted next week so please be on the look out for that.

 

Holiday Break

For any of my non-American readers who may be unaware this Thursday is Thanksgiving. I’ll be taking a break from the serial this week due to the holiday, but expect the serial to wrap up in the coming weeks.

To my fellow Americans go eat some turkey and enjoy your time off.

If you do any shopping, please be patient with any retail workers with whom you might be dealing. This time of year most retailers take on extra help and some of the employees will have only been on the job for a few weeks or less before working on Black Friday. Remember also in cases that stores that open on Thursday people are working instead of spending that time with their family. If a store runs out of product, the workers of these big retail chains have no say in how much product is ordered. I worked retail a number of years ago and the company I worked for did none of their ordering at store level. Not even the general manager had any say over what product we received. Every time I was yelled at it was over matters not my fault and beyond my control. Please remember that when shopping. I know sometimes it’s easy to get frustrated, but don’t take your anger out on someone who’s just doing their job.

Do remember to have a delightfully demented week,

Daniel A. Wolfe

No Psyren this week

As much as I hate to do his, I will not be posting a new serial part this week. For those that don’t know, I came down with a particularly virulent bug and have been unable to write for more than a week. I am getting a slowly better, but as yet I have been unable to concentrate or focus long enough to produce anything usable.

Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem as I do have a little bit of a back log of story parts, but I decided to add a new part last week.

If I can swing it next week I’ll attempt to post two parts, but that’s wholly dependent on how much writing I can get done and whether or not I decide to dip into my back log.

Have a delightfully demented day,

Daniel A. Wolfe


Sorry, no Psyren this week

It seems the fates really don’t want me to post this week. After first suffering through internet connectivity issues my desktop has been rendered unusable due to failing components. I am awaiting parts and should be back in action next week, but until then please accept my apologies.
