The Outbreak: Quarantine Status Update #8

Posted on March 11, 2015 by Skyler

After being on the road for a little under 8 months, I returned home to Baltimore about two weeks ago to pick up where I left off with my creative work. While my time on the road was worthwhile, I haven’t been in the right space to work on The Outbreak, but I plan to make up for that time lost now.

My two current objectives are to release the ebook version of The Outbreak: First Light and to continue with the development of Quarantine. The First Light ebook is about half done right now, and I’m hoping to wrap it up within the next week or so. After that, I will be dead set on pushing forward with Quarantine, although I’m not going to quote a release date for it just yet.

Here’s a production screenshot from Quarantine from last year to give you a taste of what’s coming next:

More coming soon. Stay tuned for more updates.

The Outbreak: Day Zero eBook Now Available for Free, New Facebook Page and Project Fund

Posted on January 19, 2015 by Skyler

Hey everyone, as I mentioned in my previous news update, The Outbreak: Day Zero ebook is now available to read online for free on the Chapters page, and is also available in PDF, MOBI, and DOCX formats. The ebook will also remain on Amazon for $0.99 if you’d like to purchase it on Kindle.

Next, the new official Facebook page for the series is also now online, so please like the page if you’re on Facebook.

Lastly, The Outbreak Series project fund is now online, and you can contribute by sending a donation through PayPal or with a credit card. My current goal is to raise $1,000, and the capital will be used to help cover development costs of the series, so please donate if you’d like to help keep me going. Any amount you can contribute will be greatly appreciated.

So, that’s all for now. As I mentioned before, I’m jumping back into development on Quarantine this week, so I’ll keep you updated on my progress.

The Outbreak: Quarantine Status Update #7

Posted on January 14, 2015 by Skyler

UPDATE 1/16/15: The Outbreak: Day Zero ebook is now available for free on the Chapters page. The Outbreak Series Facebook page is also now live.

Hey all, I’m currently in the midst of writing the script for Part 2 of 4 of Quarantine. As I’ve stated before, the script for Part 1 is already complete, although I’ve decided I want to release the entire chapter at once, rather than in four subsequent parts going forward (it’s just easier this way–I don’t like releasing apps and then removing them from the marketplace if I don’t have to).

With that said, I need your support to keep the development of this project going, and there are three ways you can help:

  1. Purchase The Outbreak: Day Zero on Kindle
  2. Donate to The Outbreak series project fund
  3. Like The Outbreak Series on Facebook

I am currently in Baltimore visiting family at the moment, but I will be returning to my apartment in Virginia on Friday the 16th. On that day, I will be releasing The Outbreak: Day Zero ebook for free on this website and on torrent sites in order to spread it to more readers, although it will remain on Amazon for $0.99.

The past months have been hectic for me, as I’ve been moving around a lot, but I’m starting to find my footing again, and I think 2015 is going to be a really exciting year. More is on the way soon, so stay tuned as always, and thanks for stickin’ with me.

The Outbreak: Quarantine Status Update #6

Posted on October 15, 2014 by Skyler

So it’s been a month since my last update, and while a lot has been happening in my life, unfortunately I haven’t been able to make a lot of progress on Quarantine. At this point, I simply will not have enough time to release the full ebook by Halloween, but I will be able to release the first part of the kinetic novel.

I’m learning as I go with setting deadlines for myself, and I’m finding that I tend to need more time than I think. It’s easy to have wishful thinking, and I’m working on being more realistic about my deadlines.

As I’ve said before, my intention is for The Outbreak series to be a trilogy, and the first book will contain Day Zero, First Light, Quarantine, and some extra content, and of course the next two books will continue where the story left off.

I’ve found that it’s easiest for me to write for visual mediums like comics and films, so writing novels is more difficult for me, since there are no pictures to portray the scenes.

Of course this is just a crutch, and I can certainly do it, I just need more time and practice. Writing fiction is quite the endeavor.

So that’s all for now. Since I already have The Outbreak: Quarantine Part 1 written I just need to do the art, music, and sound effects, and it will be released on Halloween on this website, although I will not be releasing it elsewhere until the entire chapter is complete.

See you on the 31st!
