2000 word update, new content at ‘He stepped into the foyer’
The Patreon poll was a blowout, so I’m going to be doing a short Halloween-themed story before I resume work on Autumn War. Here are the first 2500 words:
Finally finished! Goetic Justice is all wrapped up and edited. I’m gonna take a day off tomorrow because I’ve been pulling 12 hour days for a week and I’m going to die, then I’m gonna do the community day that I postponed on the 1st. After that, I’ll make the new Ebook and get back to work on Autumn War.
Another 20,000 words are edited, chapters 5 to 8. I expect to be finished tomorrow.
Thanks for being patient during the unexpectedly long editing process, guys. The first 30,000 words of Goetic Justice have been completed and are ready to read, Chapters 1 to 5:
I have five more chapters left to proofread, then it’ll be ready for the audiobook recording, and I can also make a new ebook for you guys. Usually, when I do a re-edit, the book is in one of two conditions. It’s either in a bad enough place where a total rewrite from scratch is required to bring it up to my current standards, approaching it as I would a totally new story, or it’s in a good enough place where minor grammar and punctuation edits will fix the majority of the problems. Goetic Justice was slap bang in the middle, with half of it requiring substantial rewrites, and half of it needing to be polished up. Because of that, it took much longer than I anticipated, but it’s almost done and I can share my progress with you guys now. I’m happy to say that this is a much improved version.

I just wanted to thank you guys for being patient with the Goetic Justice editing. I’m almost done, just have about 20,000 words to get out of the way. It ended up being a much more substantial rewrite than I expected, but it’s going to be in a really good place ready for the audiobook. We may also be getting a new cover for said audiobook, so I’ll keep you guys updated on that.
Some other news: I’ve decided to split the Autumn War into three volumes to make it more digestible for readers, as it’s nearing 300,000 words, which is actually too large for many of the sites I post on. That doesn’t mean the story will be changed in any way, it’ll just be split up for convenience. That also gives me the opportunity to get three different covers for it, and SickJoe is onboard for all of those. So, volumes I, II, and III are all going to have their own artwork, probably featuring most if not all of the characters.
We have some more concept artwork on the way in the form of an XMR refresh. An artist who will remain unnamed by request is working on a sheet not unlike the one we did for the Valbaran ships, which is going to address some of the quirks of the platform and make it so that you guys can build your own XMRs from the various parts and attachments. I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with.
I’m happy to be able to announce the next audiobook project that’s in the works! Bordeaux Black, the talented voice actress who brought Pinwheel to life, is returning to work on Goetic Justice. She’s going to be bringing her unique blend of narration and voice acting to Nahash and the other demons, and for those of you who are familiar with the story, I think you’ll agree that she’s a perfect fit. Prepare for the gentle tones of the seductive Seirim and maybe some spooky voice filters for the more colorful characters.
Recording is slated to begin in October, and I’m going to be taking a short break from work on The Autumn War to re-edit the story and make sure it’s all ready to go. It should only take three or four days.
If you’d like to check out more of Bordeaux Black’s work, you can find her socials over here:

I’m going to need to take a short break from writing to edit the next story that’s going to be made into an audiobook. It needs to be ready for October when recording is scheduled to begin, so it’s just something unavoidable that I have to get done. It should only take three or four days, and I’ll make an updated ebook for you guys too.
Full announcement coming tomorrow!
