I have finished Volume Two, it’s now printed off and super-ready for editingz. Lovely! I’ve gone over my projected page prediction and into the realms of madness with this thing. I genuinely believe that this thing holds some of my finest writing, and it’s going to be available for free in less than two weeks time. I’m now going to kick into scrubby highlighting and giving myself notes such as “YOU SHALL NOT PASS/PUT THIS ONLINE!” because I’m nice to myself. There are many things to get through in this post so, you should know that everything is on schedule and it’s going to be great.
I shall start converting the book into Kindle format right now, creating a whole new document full of font changes and proper formatting designed to fit perfectly on to the Kindle. It will be beautiful and I hope it will be a lot better than my Volume One Kindle Edition which was rather touch and go. The Kindle edition of Volume Two will henceforth be referred to as the Prestige edition, trust me, it will be a lot better than Volume One‘ Kindle Edition. Speaking of Volume One, I have a little announcement to make.
I shall be re-releasing a re-mastered version of this book (in .PDF format) starting today with a new fancy cover and probably some new edits in there from the Kindle edition conversion. I’m uploading it right now and it looks lovely with all new stuff and… yeah it’s the same book, deal with it. You might be wondering why I’m calling it a re-mastering? Well, aside from the edits, I am re-branding the series with new covers and launching the proper format in Volume Two. As a special treat however, I will be releasing a proper, cared for Kindle edition of Volume One on the one year anniversary of this thing (August 30th) because a year later is better than a year never.
The covers being re-designed is due to Juan having personal problems and my artist-guy FlashJB having other commitments. Instead, I’ve had to make these myself and I think it’ll probably stick for the rest of the series. Volume One is read because it’s an imposing ‘something more’, Volume Two is green because it’s all about our humble medium’s obsession with emulating cinema and Volume Three will be blue because video-game journalism makes me blue. I hope to make the series’ covers out of the primary and secondary colours because of their aesthetic appeal and MSpaint is limited in its options.
Now, Tears in Rain, I am going to kill myself with this thing. Guaranteed. I am putting myself on a 15 page a day quota, exiling any distractions and pouring over literally thousands of pages of research in order to get this mammoth out. It will kill me, I’m sure of it, but I will deliver the full fat thick 300 pages from my dead hands. Production kicks off next week and I am incredibly excited.
Oh, and you might get a special something in the ‘About the Author’ section of both books.
A picture of me.
Just my face, for the first time, guess you could call it an EXCLUSIVE!
