Storm-Fallen is back in action! Sorry for the month-long hiatus from posting, but I’m here now and I’ll be posting once a week, most likely on Fridays. I have several things I would like to announce this week including: the latest chapter of Storm-Fallen on Wattpad, a new Facebook group for unpublished and newly-published authors, and upcoming O2 Reviews.
Chapter 24: Old Blood, New Weapon– This week’s chapter returns with Darlowe and Runa as they continue to wait for the other Liberators to show. Their current military leader, Commander Udgallus, makes an appearance as well, bringing with him a new weapon prototype for them to use against the Storm-Fallen. Here is the link to Wattpad: Chapter 24: Old Blood, New Weapon
The First Novel Group– Last week I started a closed group on Facebook called The First Novel Group. I created it for unpublished authors working on their first novel to be able to connect with others pursuing the publication of their first book. It’s also available to authors who have published their first novel and would like to promote it or give helpful information on how they went about the publication process. We currently have 23 members and gladly welcome any others interested in joining. The atmosphere is very supportive and the members actively provide answers to questions others bring up. I look forward to seeing some new members so come join us on your journey to publication!
O2 Reviews– I’m currently working on a review for Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. I saw it Thursday night in IMAX and it was every bit the adventure the trailer teased it would be. The stunts blew my mind, but more on that in the review. I’m also looking for several people who are interested in writing reviews in order to get more O2 Reviews out there. It won’t be for money, but for the experience and networking. If you like video games, movies, tv shows, or books and would like to write reviews, send me a message. Thanks!
Well, that’s about it for this week. Talk to you all soon, or next Friday at the latest! Hope you like the newest chapter and let me know what you think in the comments.
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!
Read chapter 23: High Alert here!
Big update today! I will be covering a lot of different developments as the last update like this was in October of last year on my previous website. Much has happened since then, a lot of cool stuff!
Currently, I’m at 37,700 words. Which is incredible when I think about the fact that I was going to stop at 10K. Now the story has bloomed into something much bigger than I thought possible, 7X – 9X larger actually if I continue at this rate. That being said, if I’m almost at 40K and I’m expecting an 80K-range novel then I’m almost halfway done with the first draft! Super excited!
I’m still releasing chapters weekly on Wattpad (or bi-monthly depending on my motivation, haha), as well as revising the first 20, or so, chapters already available. You can read them here: Storm-Fallen on Wattpad.
Just a few days ago I spoke with artist Andreas Rocha (his piece ‘Desert Winds‘ is the featured image) on illustrating the cover of the novel. He will be sending me a rough draft soon and I’m extremely excited to be working with him and to see what he comes up with. You can find his portfolio at andreasrocha.com. His stuff is absolutely amazing. Please check it out.
I’m working on developing some useful reviews with a more technical review system. I don’t know if it’ll be thought of as useful, or fun to read, but I thought I’d give it a shot. I have one out now for ‘Welcome to the Punch‘ which was an action movie from 2013 that just came out on Netflix, but I’ll be working on some more current content within the next few weeks. Probably starting with Jurassic World this week! So if you’re interested look for O2 Reviews right here on my blog.
Well that’s about it for this update, I’ll post again soon if anything comes up worth mentioning. Thanks for checking in and please feel free to comment/message me, I will reply. Are you excited to see Jurassic World this weekend?
Lots of stuff to talk about, so little time! I’m going to try and keep this short.
1) Got the new website up and running for Storm-Fallen news and updates. This will allow me to promote the story more effectively and connect with readers from multiple media platforms.
2) I’m currently revising the published chapters on Wattpad for reasons I shall disclose in the coming months. Don’t worry, I’m still going to publish new chapters weekly! Chapter 22 will release this week.
3) I’m working on my very own entertainment review system. A lot of times reviews can be misleading and/or vague. With O2 Reviews I want to have a dynamic dual rating system that ranks it within its Genre and its Medium. Ex. Friday the 13th and The Walking Dead are both Horror but will also be rated in their respective Mediums as one is a Movie and the other is a Show. It will definitely need some tweaking so if you have any ideas, or want to contribute, feel free to contact me.
And that’s about it for this update. Thanks for reading! I hope you like the website and look out for more content as I post. You can get email alerts if you sign up for them in the menu section.~WM
Hi, Winston Malone here, and I’m happy to present the official site for Storm-Fallen. Here I will post updates on the status of the novel, the newest chapters for you to read, and a ton of behind-the-scenes info on the world of Hedos and what is in store for the future of the series. Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to check out the new website, and I hope to see you here a lot more!
