Pinwheel Timeline

Some of you may remember that I built a Pinwheel Timeline a while back, but due to a lack of free time, it got forgotten about for several months a little while.

On my day off yesterday, I decided to overhaul the timeline and get it polished up. It spilled over into today, as it ended up being quite complicated and required a lot of math, but it’s finished now.

I have added all missing stories and lots of important historical events (including a full breakdown for Worlds Apart, which gets asked about frequently). I’ve created custom icons for each entry, and every event has both a description and a clickable link that leads to a corresponding book where appropriate. If you find an event you want to know more about, or you want to read a story in its chronological order, the link will take you to it.

This should also allow me to more easily write stories that take place in the past relative to the current setting without confusing people or getting lost myself, for example a Borealan first contact story, or Raz and Stanley visiting Elysia.

The timeline is fully interactable with some nifty little animations provided by the plugin, and it all seems to work fine on both mobile and desktop. You can check it out here:

I’ll get back to editing now!

Human Resources Cover

The book cover for Human Resources is ready right on time! Waga is an artist who I’ve wanted to work with for a long time, and he’s brought his signature reptilian expertise to the Valbarans. He’s put a ton of love into every scale and feather, so make sure you open these in their full resolution so you can really appreciate them.
On the left we have Ezi with her tan scales, and on the right is Mima with her beautifully textured feathers, both unusual variations that we haven’t seen portrayed in official artwork before. There are two versions of the cover, one that features Yemi with his peacock feathers and traditional male adornments, and the other which features Ipal with her more conventional coloration.
There’s a ton of detail in the lounge background and on the table, where we can see a Valbaran hookah and some local spirits.

Human Resources – Editing

That’s a wrap! The bisexual version is finished. All that’s left to do now is proofread the added content and run it through Grammarly. Hoping to have that done next week. Here’s a sneak preview of a pretty boy from the upcoming cover:

1500 words, chapter 21 and all the additional Yemi content for that is done. All that’s left to handle now is the epilogue. Hoping I can get that done tomorrow so I can finish the last of the proofreading and Grammar passes next week. The cover is basically done so I should be able to move on to the ebooks right away.

1500 words of new content for the bi version, from “Take a picture – it’ll last longer,”
That wraps up Yemi’s chapter. I also edited everything up to chapter 20. On the home stretch now. I also caught a couple of small typos that I’ve reflected in the hetero version.

Also, just wanted to give you guys a heads-up. As many of you know, I use Starlink (funded by my lovely Patreon supporters) and there’s currently a sizeable coronal mass ejection happening. I’m getting some alerts that the satellite network may be impacted, so if I vanish for any reason over the next few days, that’ll be why. The connection seems pretty stable right now, but it’s a good excuse to share this picture of the aurora that I took.
