Tides of War Available Now!

Big news: Injection: Tides of War has just been released by my friends at Nanomyte! If you like post-apocalyptic worlds and heroes/villians with undoubtably cool super powers, check out their page for more stories.

Tides of War isn’t in comic form, however, it’s a novella detailing the events prior to the main Injection storyline. It follows DEITY Shan-Li as she is sent on a perilous mission into the Blackout Zone in order to investigate a trail of malicious genetic experimentation by MALMAL, a rival organization based in Indonesia. And as you might’ve guessed, things go horribly wrong. But by Shan’s side is a rookie spec ops soldier by the name of Rew Durryl, and he surprisingly comes to her aide on more than one occasion. But who is he really? There are many secrets surrounding the mission and Shan-Li will stop at nothing to find the answers.

Interested? The Nanomyte team is publishing chapters weekly. Here’s the link! https://www.wattpad.com/story/91527880-injection-tides-of-war

Tides of War is almost here!

Recently, I announced that I wrote a novella titled, Injection: Tides of War, and that its release date was coming soon. Well, now it is truly upon us. Nanomyte Studios will be publishing the novella – based on their well-received motion comic Injection – on Wattpad, Tuesday of this week.

If you’re unfamiliar with the comic, the story follows a young DEITY named Jinn on his journeys through a post-apocalyptic wasteland as he fulfills contracts for the mysterious organization of Syntech. A DEITY is a specially-trained soldier amplified by powers called Injections which allow the user to manipulate certain aspects of their molecular makeup by way of nanomites. An example of an Injection would be Forynge, which expedites the body’s healing process.

The novella started off as a fanfic, but as I began to work closely with Mike and the Nanomyte team, it was soon canonized as an official Injection story. Considered a prequel, Tides of War begins with Jinn’s mentor, Shan Li, receiving Syntech orders to invade the Blackout Zone. The mission involves infiltrating MALMAL territory – one of Syntech’s rivals. But even Shan isn’t told the real reason for the mission.

As the story unfolds, Shan forms unlikely alliances and questions the loyalty of her own comrades. She must fight against unbeatable odds and overcome a foe unlike anything she’s ever faced before. The mission soon fades into the background as her new and only priority becomes survival.

At 12 chapters, the novella rounds out at about 33k words. I had an amazing time writing it, and I hope those who read it enjoy it as much as I do. It’ll be available on Wattpad over on Nanomyte Studios’ page. Here’s the link: Read Tides of War here!.

Thanks for all the support and I’ll be eager to hear your feedback of the story. Side note, I’m working on editing The Decrepit Forest and outlining book 2. I’ll release more info on that soon enough. Have a great day!

Character Profiles and Extras

Hey everyone! Malone here with the weekly update. This week has been a fun one, but mostly chill as usually. I got to watch Dragonball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ on Tuesday and it was glorious. It had almost everything I wanted from a Dragonball Z movie and more! I’m really excited for the new show to come to the US eventually. I was going to watch Fantastic Four last night at the premiere showing but then I saw those reviews (oh man were they harsh). Hopefully it’s not as bad as the critics say. We’ll see. I still have to get my butt out to see Ant-Man.

I published chapter 25 yesterday on Wattpad. It’s called ‘A Darkness Descends’ (OooOOo ominous, I know haha). But it’s not that dark. The chapter sees Jozz and Myalin making their way to the Lorrallen meeting point to set off on the Liberation. Nevesa meets someone once again in the Khraw dungeon, and some threats are issued. There are 4 or 5 more chapters left in Part 2, then the final act of the story will be underway!

Chapter 25: A Darkness Descends

Another thing, in regards to Stormfallen, I’m creating some detailed character profiles here on the website. They are a work in progress but I will add to them over time. I’m also developing a full Glossary of all the key terms brought up in the novel.

O2 Reviews applicants! I’m still looking for 3-5 people who are interested in writing reviews. If you like movies, games, television, books, or even music and would like to join the O2 team, message me! Looking forward to talking to you and helping you get your reviews read.

Thanks for tuning in this week and I hope to see you next Friday! Let me know what you think in the comments.~WM

New Chapter Thursday! Storm-Fallen 23: High Alert

In this chapter of Storm-Fallen Gy’ave Khraw reflects on her decision to judge Yarrex so harshly in public while attempting to fulfill her duty as Magistratus to her kin. Myalin and Jozz are rushed to meet the Lorrallen outside the city and run into a friendly face. Tensions rise in this installment as the storm and its demons get closer to the city. Ahhh!

Please comment and let me know what you think. I enjoy all feedback, even if it’s not positive. Thanks for the support and happy reading!

#ChallengeTheProud Contest

Hey there! So many of you know I use Wattpad regularly to publish my stories and connect with readers and other writers. I believe it is an invaluable resource and I’m thrilled to have discovered it when I did. Because of the social media aspect of the app/website I’ve found it to be much more encouraging to write, as readers have motivated me to stay accountable and continue releasing chapters weekly in hopes of entertaining them. One of these readers I’ve come to know and respect is actually a fellow writer named Julia Proud.

Julia was one of the first people I’d never met in person to give my story a chance. She gave me valuable feedback and genuine encouragement during the beginning stages of my story’s development. I can’t thank her enough for all the kind words and helpful tips she’s given me so far. She’s also a very talented writer whose works I’ve come to enjoy, and I’m impressed at her dedication to the craft. She’s developed quite a following in her #ChallengeTheProud events on twitter in which followers can present a particular prompt (challenge) and she must write a short story based on the prompt/challenge.

A few days ago she unveiled a new website dedicated to the challenge event called http://challengetheproud.com. On this website you can view the 30 short stories she’s developed from the contest and vote on your favorite one. This is the coolest part in my opinion: the one with the most votes becomes a full length novel. The voters even get a free copy of the final edition. That’s great! I love this idea.

If you’d like to participate in the event head on over to her website and check out the process. Don’t forget to subscribe with your email and cast your vote on the story you’d like to see become a full novel. Deadline is June 30th!!! If you’d like to know more about Julia or would like to see more of her work here are some links below:
