Oh hi.  Don't mind me.

"The Tower of Kartage (Teaser Enclosed)"

Thursday - September 18, 2014

[Chemiclord] - 22:12:30 - [link here]

I have a tendency to be very quiet about the sort of stuff I do (and when I do talk about it I do so reluctantly), generally for two reasons:

1) Because I'm terrible at promoting myself, and feel horribly fake when I try.

2) I hate talking about things before they are done, because I don't like making promises unless I'm nigh certain I can meet them.

I've been told I need to get over (1) in a hurry, and I'm trying. But as for (2), I'm finally ready to be a bit more specific. The Tower of Kartage is very near publication, and my personal goal is for sales to begin September 25th (about one week from today).

So, for those who haven't been following my sparse updates on my personal blog, what is the Tower of Kartage anyway?

It's the first of (hopefully) four novels focusing on the origins of some of the primary characters in the Endgames game world. In this case, it pertains to Pirogoeth's apprenticeship and the beginnings of her training that would lead her to Kuith. And if you look closely, you'll see foreshadowing for the second book in the series that will feature the avatar of everyone's favorite fox-woman.

For me, I'm looking forward to showing another slice in what is a much larger world than had been glimpsed so far. And as is my idiom, I'm sure I've described it terribly, and have done little to actually catch anyone's interest. So, in the spirit of trying to salvage this post, I offer a small teaser of the novel itself, never before seen. Just follow this link here -> This one.

Hope you'll enjoy it, and consider a purchase when it comes available for sale in the very near future.

Thanks,

Your kinda friendly neighborhood Chemiclord

The Muffin Cart shall live!

"Muffin Cart!"

MegaTokyo seems to bring out the arts and crafts in me. Carving pumpkins for Halloween? Some Darkly Cute would look good on there. Snow globes with a slot in the bottom so you can insert a photo of your grandkids? Sad Kimiko goes in there instead. Papercraft Macintosh computer? That just begs to be part of a papercraft ph34rbot. Child-friendly foam croquet set? That can be repurposed as the Girl Phase "Smack-o-Mallet". Chibi Godzilla plushie? One zombie bite later and you have a Zom-Zom plushie. I even bought some toy helicopter things to try to put together Largo's flying steampunk hat, though there's an issue of weight versus sturdiness that I'm not sure I can overcome with the simple toy-isle flying units.

One thing has eluded me for years, though. Largo's Mr. Muffin Honda Gyro Canopy scooter. That's way too complex to really make myself, but surely there's a miniature version to be had. Alas, there was none to be found. Until now! Releasing this fall from Tomytec's Buhinmokei series of scale models, not one but two 1/12 scale models of the Gyro Canopy! The first is a plain version while the second has the necessary cargo carrier on the rear. It is branded as a Pizza-la delivery scooter, but those logos will be easy to cover over with Mr. Muffin signage. Now the only thing I need is a 1/12 scale bunny suit guy...

In other news, the location of the Fredarting live drawing stream has been in flux lately, but hopefully we've settled out for the long haul located at Twitch.tv. I've updated the local Fredarting page to have the proper embedded video now. Those of you with accounts at justin.tv should be able to use the same login at Twitch.
