Administrator's Assistant is now up! You can check it out here:
Will Swarming Sovereignty get any more chapters
Eventually, yes. Since I wish to keep it as casual as possible, I only write chapters for it when I'm up to it and don't put myself on a schedule. I'm not sure I'll have much time in the next couple of months for it, since I'm moving, but there will be a holiday special.
And Administrator's Assistant also features Amelia fairly heavily and, to a lesser extent, Lia/Rose/Connie as well, so consider giving that a look when it drops, though it's quite different from SS.
Announcement time! It's long, so take a pastebin link:
TL;DR breaks on the 26th, Dec 3rd (probably), Jan 7th, Administrator's Assistant public release Dec 1. AA will release the weeks The Outland doesn't after 13-14 days of daily chapters.
you still alive? checking in on a favorite author of mine.
When is the next chapter of The Outlands? It's been a while since you've written more of it.
I can't be sure but hopefully soon, before the year is out for sure. Now that I'm off my Swarming Sovereignty kick, I'm looking to build up 3 chapters of backlog before I go back to scheduled chapters. I don't know when that'll be, I've been having writer's block lately, but I have been thinking about it a fair bit lately.
Chapter 1 of Administrator's Assistant is now live on Patreon!
The result of the poll was that the majority was either for the use of AI art or ambivalent, so I went ahead with it. For those of you who are interested, here's a link to a public post that has the art:
I have to say I'm extremely disappointed that a creative has decided to turn to a tool trained on stolen art on a massive scale, devaluing the work of uncountable numbers of artists who didn't consent to their work being used this way. It's one thing to unknowingly steal art, but the fact the poll exists says you knew of the ethical concern and then just kind of went ahead with it anyway?
Hey folks, sorry for the radio silence, I've been working on Administrator's Assistant the past few weeks, and I'm happy to say that I have a decent backlog built up, and will be putting out the first chapter on Patreon this Sunday, after which it will be at least weekly until we get to 25 or so chapters. By at least weekly, I mean that we'll be getting at least one per week for sure, but if I happen to finish more in that time I'll post them as they come. (1/4)
Once we hit 25 I'll reassess the situation and determine if weekly still works, I'm going through some life changes at the moment and I'm not totally sure how things will look come that time In the intervening time, however, I have a question for you all. I've been thinking about the cover, and I want to try and branch out from the "random scenery" aesthetic my other covers have. Normally I wouldn't bother you all with something like that, but specifically I was thinking about AI art. (2/4)
I'm not exactly in a place where I can justify doing a commission for a cover, so I thought AI art would be a good place to turn to get relatively good, customized artwork for the series. However, I understand that this is a rather contentious topic, so I wanted to get a feel for how everyone feels about it before I make any commitments. (3/4)
As such, I'm putting up a poll asking what people think. If the response is positive, ambivalent, or I don't get enough responses, I'll be proceeding with AI art, otherwise I'll make the cover look somewhat similar to what my other series have. Here's the link to the poll, I'll check the responses after two days and determine where to go from there:
When is the next update for the Outlands?
Something a little different - I mentioned on Discord that chapters are going to slow while I do a bunch of work preparing for the next arc of my D&D campaign, and got a bit of interest in it. It's not up online, if I put it up on Patreon, how many of you would be interested in looking it over/using it? More info on Discord, but here's a poll https://strawpoll.com/polls/40ZmqleloZa
Hey folks, a quick update - I already mentioned this on discord, but I'm going on vacation out of state the next week, starting tomorrow, so don't expect chapters or long comments for a while - all I'll have is my phone and that's not great for typing anything long lol
Uh, so, I'm gonna guess some of you saw something like this coming, but I think I'm going to put The Outlands on a temporary hiatus. This is mostly because I've been having an unbelievable amount of fun writing Swarming Sovereignty and I want to keep the pace up. (1/2)
Don't worry, do what you think is best for your worlds. I can wait for more Outlandish shenanigans, I like it to see the swarm grow!
I got no issues with that, really loving Swarm, but binge reading your other works while i wait for new chapters. Almost done with New Chimera
Loved the most recent chapter for swarming! I think you wrote out the fight scene pretty darn well, far better than even most light novels lol.
Can't wait to see how the humans will react to the loss of their hero!
can't wait to see how the power balance changes among the gods, since the gods are already taking sides regarding the swarm!
And I can't wait for another chapter! Keep up the great work! Have a great day!
Hey folks, I'm pushing this week's chapter of The Outlands out to...either next week or the week after, depending on how fast I end up getting things done. As you may have noticed, I've been going hard at writing Swarming Sovereignty and writing it is basically all I want to do at the moment lol. (1/2)
Between that and the fact that I want to get these next chapters out to everyone ASAP, I felt pushing the chapter back was better than forcing it. Sorry to those of you that were looking forward to it, I'll try not to make a habit of this. (2/2)
Do what you enjoy most. I’ve been enjoying the swarming sovereignty chaps lately so more of that is fine by me
Hey folks, I know I said no delays, but at the end of the week I caught a cold that has left me feeling very fuzzy in the head. As such, I'm going to be pushing back this week's chapter at least 2 days, maybe more depending on how long I'm out of it. I'll update more on tuesday
