I personally like transformation stories. That a change happens that the MC can't simply ignore.
Nonetheless, I really wish for the character to still behave like a normal person. If not I ask myself what even is the point of the MC being a former human if they for example just act like any other demon.

Also, I have a preferation for female MCs.
Maybe I just got tired of all those harem protagonists. But even if they're not like this, I find that the stuff that happens has less impact. It's somewhat expected from a male character to fight and survive. I find the emotional turmoil of a girl far more relatable.

What I really dislike is when the girl big plastered on a cover is not the supposed MC but the pale guy in the background of the right corner.

To all slime girl readers: I've just added basically a new chapter at the end of Chapter 106. It was too small to stand alone and was too disconnected from the one I'm releasing today.

expentio · Author · Feb 17, 2022

I probably should say this now. From 7. of March on I'm going to write exams for two weeks, so I fear I'll have to stop releasing during that time.

Hunt3rsf · Feb 17, 2022

Oh damn, good exams mate !

We'll wait anxiously for the next batch of wonderful stories clear.png

expentio · Author · Feb 17, 2022

Will still post this week. Next maybe too.

expentio · Author · Jan 25, 2022

While I was preparing the next Formicea chapter for this week I got a little idea and ended up making a filler chapter. So instead of the one I intended to release you'll get that one. So this Sunday you'll see one of the most recent I ever made. Also, it's like three times the usual length.

Shirokuma · Jan 25, 2022

Yay!

expentio · Author · Jan 30, 2022

So, it's out. Embarrassingly I noticed that it's not as long as I thought. But still slightly longer than the usual.

expentio · Author · Jan 18, 2022

Once again I somehow managed to get 1st on trending. And...

I seriously would like to know what I did right!

The reader numbers are fine, but there are many more popular.
The ratings are quite good but I don't think that's the point. And there's always a bigger fish here as well.
Seriously, what did I do to get so far?

The message is a little long so i will have to post twice

I think it is because your stories are quite different from most stories on this site so they stick out.

They are not LitRPGs(major one for me, at least) and have mostly grounded fantasy setting (mb not counting eldrich one).

There are quite a lot of struggle in them but they are not action focused. Making most of struggle psychological, political or diplomatic and personal.

vlodog01 · Jan 18, 2022

Also having inteligent monsters in your stories who are not just like humans with different colored hair or skin while still have them interact with humanity and having trasformed Non-human protagonist gives you a lot of oportunity to explore differences between them and not just shrug it off and say chliche "they are just like us" and at the same time say "humans are the real mosters".

P.S.
Having Female Protagonist and mb some yurish moments are also quite nice.

For some reason, I have to think now about how Liqu dissolved poor Horsi.

RoboticSquid · Jan 17, 2022

If you don't want to make a Patreon (because it's a recurring payment) you could make a Ko-fi account or something similar and people can just donate whatever they feel comfortable with. When I make a one time donation I do it because I feel that whatever the person has already done they deserve to be given a tip for. Not because I expect them to use the money I gave them to make more.

expentio · Author · Jan 17, 2022

That sounds actually like something I could be comfortable with. I like to write my stories and advance the plot bit by bit, but it's scary to think of everything as an obligation. I might run out of ideas, get too caught up with other stuff, or simply grow tired (from exhausted to losing interest, though the 2nd is unlikely at the moment). Wouldn't want to upset anyone with this, as I rather think about writing as something enjoyable. For me and for others.

Do you have a patreon page, or other way to gift/support you?

puggan · Jan 16, 2022

Understand that it can feel like you have to continue if you start promising stuff on patreon. But as long as you are open with it being a hoby when you have time, and you may have less time in future, you not going to let you suporters down even if you stop.

puggan · Jan 16, 2022

Not a creator myself, but follow some creators on patreon, and from my experience, there is options so you can stop "billing" for months where you don't think you deserv it. And you don't need to promise stuff, here's an exemple on one I follow that has very vague promises: https://www.patreon.com/Binarysoap/membership

Hope this help with the anxiety next time you think about it :-)
expentio · Author · Jan 16, 2022

I'll look into it. For now, I have exams coming up in March. Maybe things will go calmer after this.

puggan · Jan 16, 2022

No hurry, and good luck with the exams.

I just went throught my list novelwriters and updated/increased my support, and notice you wasn't on the list.

expentio · Author · Jan 10, 2022

I removed in Chapter 100/101 of Slime Girl that they spent another day after receiving the mission. They barely did anything that day and it makes no sense that they can procastinate while a wild beast terrorizes the only road to the capital.

Shirokuma · Jan 2, 2022

You said one time that you don't know a way to make a crossover of your 3 novels 

https://www.scribblehub.com/series/380173/dreamers-tenteacle-caf/

I think this one can a good inspiration 

expentio · Author · Dec 10, 2021

How the heck did I get to 1st place on trending? I haven't even posted? The next is due on sunday.

Shirokuma · Dec 10, 2021

Because you are awesome! clear.png

vlodog01 · Dec 10, 2021

Well your stories deserve it.

Fiarest · Nov 26, 2021

I just finished reading your "slime girl" and I really liked it. Now I found myself craving for stories similar to it, so I wondered if you can recommend some?

expentio · Author · Nov 26, 2021

My other stories share the same "transformation to monster" base and have a similar style.

Slime stories: Maybe: Who Says This OL Can't Become A Splendid Slime!?
But currently on hiatus (783 pages)

My personal favorite is Core001 with a catgirl. It's on hiatus since forever, but recently the author says it will soon be continued.

If that's not it, you might specify "similar".
The "looking for" category of Scribblehub in the forum, might be a better address.

And tomorrow comes the next chapter.

Fiarest · Nov 26, 2021

By "similar" i meant basicaly everything. I like your style of writing, "transformation into monster" theme (especially slime transformation , body morphing abilities in general are kind of my fetish), focus on MC menthal strugles, and the fact that she still to a degree retains human apereance. Oh and I enjoyed your two other stories too, but not that much because i don't realy like either the idea of "omnipotent horror godess" or giant insects🤮.

expentio · Author · Nov 1, 2021

Just realized that 95% of the new notifications come from bots which were just created yesterday and posted their comments, which by now got deleted. Does anyone have an idea what was the reason behind this? Slightly confused what warrants such an effort.

Well, probably add spammers. But couldn't they find a better target?

They know that your novels are great and thoung that using then to attract more attention is a good idea

Basically they liked your workclear.png

expentio · Author · Nov 1, 2021

A good way to see this. And it shows that Scribblehubs protection works to some degree.

Piisfun · Nov 2, 2021

I just realized that it wasn't just "Slime Girl" that hit trending. "Eldritch" did too.

And, as expected, the readership stats for both of them shot up massively for the day.

expentio · Author · Nov 1, 2021

How do you realize you hit trending? You've got over 200 notifications when looking up your account. Honestly, thanks for all the support!clear.png

expentio · Author · Oct 26, 2021

I've decided to sort the chapters of "Kyska's Diary behind chapter 10. Just think it makes more sense that way.

expentio · Author · Oct 19, 2021

I think I'll realease Formicea also on RoyalRoad. Because of this it can happen that I go over some of the early chapters. Nothing extreme, only corrections.

expentio · Author · Oct 7, 2021

I wanna cry.

Because of a shutdown of my tablet all the text for Formicea got corrupted. And as bad this is, I also unknowingly overwrote my USB-safe with just this data.

The only light is that I, in my endless paranoia, had a second USB with an older version. However, if I don't find out how to either recover from tablet or USB, around 5 chapters worth of text are gone to Nirvana.

Piisfun · Oct 7, 2021

I would send some comforting pats, but, um...

slime is kind of hard to pat...

(I've done something similar before too, except I corrupted both of my backups, only to be saved by a third backup I hadn't realized I had made)

expentio · Author · Oct 7, 2021

Yep, costs me a minimum of 10000 words. And wordpad doesn't do savefiles as far I know, so I had a similar problem before and it doesn't look good. Only difference is the Stick with the overwritten data this time but there's not much of a chance.
