Hello! Quick message to tell you that, just like last year, a bunch of us authors of trans fiction have participated in a secret santa in December and written a total of 29 short stories that you can find here:
Omens of Change is sitting at 300 words or so, I got caught up studying and reading the works of other people for a little while now, so I'm not being very productive, but I'd rather not burn out and go at a slower pace than stop altogether. Don't worry though! We're way closer to the end than the beginning, I don't see the story lasting more than 12 chapters.
Thank you for your patience, hope you'll enjoy the short stories if you decide to buy them!
Very sorry if anyone got alerted of a new Omens of Change chapter, I made a mistake while scheduling its release and it did some weird stuff. Chapter 22 will be up in about 14 hours, a bit after the Scribblehub reset.
I'm almost done with Chapter 23, which will be Patreon exclusive for at least a week before being released. Hopefully I can write 3 or 4 chapters and release them quickly one after the other in something like ten days
I have just joined the platform and you take 'Omens' is the first read for me. Pure Magic, that's all I can say. I was transported away and couldn't stop. If the rest of the site is as good as this I will be very happy and 'married' to my tablet!

Sorry about the delay and lack of communication. I don't want to abuse the status system, as it sends everyone a notification and I don't want to be annoying, but I still want to keep everyone up to date nonetheless.
Suddenly, Erin no longer looked like the soft and kind friend Sarah had gotten to know over the past few weeks. She seemed serious, very reminiscent of the way she’d appeared to be before they’d first talked. There was steel in her eyes, but Sarah could also see the gears turning within her mind, as her friend was considering the best course of actions, dozens of scenarios being crafted and carefully analyzed in her head.
Sarah felt like she’d just discovered a new facet of her friend. This was the Erin who regularly went into the Eriz forest and fought against monsters to protect people she didn’t even know, the one who endured Becker because he was the only one who could help her at times, the one who devoted countless hours to the study of magic for the sake of keeping the world a safe place. She was a shield, taking abuse for the sake of others. Bending, but never breaking.
She’d caught glimpses of that Erin at times, whenever she would get pensive or when she’d hear something in the forest during their training sessions, but this was the first time she’d ever seen her this focused on her task, with so much fortitude emanating off of her. She meant business, and Sarah pitied whatever got on her path.
It can be difficult to write at times, I've been there myself. It's important that we enjoy what we do though, and that will mean different speeds for us all, even though that will also mean that the readers have to wait at times.
That is the nature of web novels.
Looking forward to reading what you have written once you post it
Ok, I've written the general storyline for chapter 10, now I need to write the actual chapter. I'd like to finish writing it in the coming 40 hours (Timezones make things like "tomorrow night" annoying to use online, it's 10 in the morning here), but I can't promise anything.
After that, it's back to my last essay, and then I am F R E E to write Omens of Change whenever I want !
Chapter 9 is sitting at 500 words, and I hate essays. I want to finish this chapter in the next 40 hours so that I somewhat respect my "2 chapters/week" self imposed rule, but I can't promise I'll be able to.
Can't wait for the 9th of June, I'll be able to write so much more then :D
