S4, E82: Extempore 2


A fairly quick episode giving updates on my writing, including Deviations launch and Aisuru’s “relaunch”, and babbling about the struggle to stay positive.

  • New intro and ending bits, featuring “Willow and the Light” by Kevin MacLeod, licensed under CC Attribution 3.0.
  • Aisuru’s 2nd Edition is done and now available! 
    • Paperback completely reformatted – better font, more readable, better margins, chapter decorations and scene separators, and the new cover
    • EBook also updated and reformatted – cleaner coding, removed chapter title images, & add color chapter decorations and scene separators
    • Paperback is on “pre-order” until the 28th for $14.99; use coupon code CISC1SE06S4B to save 10% off the cost and you’ll get some swag to go with it 🙂
  • Deviations launched Sunday, February 14th!
    • Originally planned for the 28th, but finished early and had no pre-orders yet so moved the eBook date up
    • Print will be closer to the 28th due to some issues with the cover and CreateSpace, but otherwise gorgeous!
    • EBook is up for preorder on Amazon now at $4.99 (possibly $2.99)
    • Paperback on pre-order on my site for $14.99; same code and offer (can use on both if desired)
    • Pre-order disappointments
  • Struggle to stay positive
  • On tap for upcoming weeks
    • Trying out Kanbanflow to see if it improves productivity, sticking to schedule (trying for both writing and work)
    • Deviations launch
    • Promotional event for Aisuru and Deviations (hopefully)
    • Get to work on Knives and the Girl & Girl in the Forest
    • Newsletter changes
    • Work on reviews for Deviations
    • Reread some Grim’s Fairy Tales for a vague story idea I have
