"The Ovals Saga" announcement, "Be Open, Again"s plot, and upcoming short stories!

The Ovals Saga is going to be all four seasons put into one novel, meaning that the four seasons displayed on the Novels section will soon be removed, and The Ovals Saga will replace them. This combo pack (which is what I plan to hopefully get published) is going to have a teaser to my next novel, and a very special surprise I'll leave for you to see. Here is a hint: it's another teaser.

The Ovals Saga should come out this Fall 2015.

Be Open, Again is, as I said in my previous post (which I recommend reading if you haven't already) is making wonderful progress. A sneak peek is coming up that is the first chapter, and I'm warning you: it's going to be dark and shocking!

I now realize I haven't announced the actual story, so expect more of the plot to "Be Open, Again" to arrive shortly in the Novels section. Before anybody asks, this is going to be a single novel. There will not be a sequel, but I do plan on adding some small side-novels / short stories involving some characters and scenarios in the original novel.

Remember what I said about upcoming re-makes to some of my first short stories ever typed? Well, this is a list of titles and very small descriptions of upcoming re-makes.

  • "The Best Issue"
    • This newspaper tells not of the past, but instead one man's fatal future!
    • This is starting production shortly after "Toxins".
  • "Heartache"
    • They say robots can't feel emotion, but what if this one can?
    • Probably starting production after the title shown below...
  • "Toxins: A Portal Fan-fiction"
    • This one wasn't actually one of my first. You can find the original production on my first deviantART account. It is, as the title says, a fan-fiction of one of my favorite games of all time, Portal and Portal 2. It's about a very mysterious character known as Ratman, or Doug Ratman. More information coming soon!
    • This is starting production after "Phone".
      • A link to the original short story will be added in the Short Stories section under it's own name!
Expect these titles to arrive shortly!

PHONE: You Can Only Depend on Me + Be Open Again Progress

I am proud to announce that another short story is in the works!

Phone: You Can Only Depend on Me is actually based on one of my first ever attempts to write a story. It was about two to three years ago on a small laptop I called a "netbook". That laptop was full of old ideas that I actually plan to re-make in the near future.

"PHONE" was my first. I'll explain the plot of the original short story at some point after the re-made short story's release.

This upcoming tale is about a girl named Lisa Edgeworth. She just moved into a new town and only got to live in it for about a week with her brother, Dylan, and her mother and father, Lily and Andy. This is because within the first week, things took a dark turn.

She starts receiving calls from a number, which is 666-666-6666. This number explains that Lisa needs to listen very carefully to the instructions it is going to give. Lisa needs to do everything exactly as the voice tells her to, otherwise she will die from monsters lurking in her house. Now, Lisa depends on somebody she doesn't know, as the world around her collapses into unbelievable darkness.

The short story should be complete and released sometime this month as it is going to range to about twenty to thirty pages of terror!

"Be Open, Again" is making good progress although is being delayed because of my side projects and summer vacation activities. It will be done before winter, I know that. Expect a very special sneak peek of the story sometime this month as well!
