The Outbreak: Quarantine Status Update #5

Posted on September 15, 2014 by Skyler

Dear humble readers,

I hate going back on my word, but Part 1 of Quarantine will not be released today, despite my previous statements. Since my move to Virginia in July, I’ve become increasingly busy, and have not had as much spare time to invest into the project as I originally thought.

Right now, I have the script of the first part written, but I’ve only begun putting the rest of the graphics, sound effects, and music together, so here is a new plan that I’m presenting to you:

Plan A: Instead of releasing the chapter in four subsequent parts, I’m going to release the entire chapter at once on Halloween. This will be less pressure and work for me, and while you’ll have to wait a bit longer to get new content, you won’t have to wait as long to receive the entire chapter of Quarantine, since I’ll be shooting for one single release on October 31st, rather than 4 separate releases from September-December.

Plan B: As I progress through the next following weeks and find that I’m still not able to put it together in kinetic novel format, I’m also considering releasing Book 1 of the series, which will contain the story content of The Outbreak: Day Zero, First Light, and Quarantine in ebook format. Writing the story is much less time consuming than doing all of the graphic, sound, and editing work, so this may be the most realistic option.

Either way, I am setting Halloween to be a solid release date for either a new chapter in kinetic novel format, or the release of the first ebook. I will let you know what I decide once I have the rest of Quarantine written.

Any feedback you’d like to provide would be much appreciated.

The Outbreak: Quarantine Status Update #4

Posted on September 1, 2014 by Skyler

Hey everyone, as mentioned in my last update, I was aiming to release Part 1 of Quarantine on either September 1st (hopeful) or 15th (realistic), so now I am confirming that it will be released on September 15th.

I’ve been very busy doing activism work within the intentional communities of central Virginia since my move to VA in July, which is why I have not been able to dedicate my full time to the project, but I am still moving at a reasonable pace, and my move only costed me to push back my original release date by a month.

I will let you know if anything changes with this release date, but if not, you can expect my next update on the 15th to contain the first part of The Outbreak: Quarantine.

The Outbreak: Quarantine Status Update #3

Posted on August 23, 2014 by Skyler

I’ve been very busy these past few weeks traveling on the road and doing activism work, which hasn’t left me much time to work on Quarantine. I’m gradually plugging away at it, though, putting in some time here and there, so it is still on the way soon. I would love to have Part 1 out by September 1st, but that would require me to really step up my production efforts. So my safe release date is September 15th, and my hopeful is September 1st. I’ll keep you updated on my progress.

The Outbreak: Quarantine Status Update #2

On Tuesday, I made further progress outlining the script and creating menu art and some concept art for Quarantine. Here’s an example of one of the concept art photos I took of Colonel Lynch observing the base from the office above.

I will be doing some more traveling next week, so I’m going to try to get as much done for Part 1 before I leave next Wednesday. I’ll keep you updated on my progress and try to provide a new release date as soon as I can, since I’ll be missing the aforementioned August 15th mark.

Stay tuned for more news updates on the way soon.

On July 16th, I moved from my home in Baltimore to a new location just outside of Charlottesville, VA, so I haven’t been able to settle down and get started on Quarantine as of yet, but today I finally got my computer and Internet all working, so I will start working again either later today or tomorrow.

I am going to be a lot more busy now that I’ve moved, and I also will be doing some more traveling soon, but I will keep you updated with my progress on Part 1 of Quarantine and hopefully still be able to release it on August 15th or by the end of August. I’ll keep you updated.
