The Seriphyn Knight Chronicles is Now

Aligning to My Vision 2022, I will finish what I started by 2020. I created this series back in 2006, lingering in and out of cache servers for many years. No more will it remain a shadow or figment of imagination. I'm making this series a real deal. Here is how.

Is the World Ready for Change?

Well, a Zaldizko change that is. The Quest for Views is going on for Zaldizko @wattpad and @webnovel

Veronica8 & To My Sunflower Now Live

It's official! 

Veronica8 is now live and so is To My Sunflower's official opening as a Webnovel story.

Going forward, anything to do with stories I'm writing for on Webnovel will be updated to this twitter account.

I'm actually looking forward to this experience.

Doing Webnovel proud.

At least that's the intention.

Brand Plans

With the signing of Webnovel arose the need to create two separate persona brands.  As I realized my persona as a hobby writer for all my other stories was going to contradict some conditions for being a commissioned contract author to Webnovel.

To ensure both of our interests are met, I made the snap decision to create a separate identity for both.

Why? Two main reasons

  • Less chance to confuse readers with what Webnovel has contracted from me and what I hold full rights.  Trust me. It will ensure less pain for both of us in the near future.
  • Genre targeting. 

What does this mean going forward?

  • Any works that I've released to Tapread and on paid channels like Kobo, I own and hold rights to. These are my hobby treasures under my identity as writer, Veronica Purcell.
  • Any works available on my Webnovel account (Veronica8), are contracted to Webnovel who hold and own full rights to those works.  I assume credit as the initial writer and creator under pen name, Veronica8 (I hope). 

What has changed?

  • All works under the pen name, "Veronica Purcell", have been removed from Webnovel.   
  • Any works that are contracted or have intentions to contract to Webnovel remain to that site under pen name, Veronica8

Fingers crossed this will created a clear line the sand to avoid persona branding confusions.

To My Sunflower Is Contracted to

I signed a #Webnovel contract, handing over To My Sunflower to them a few days back. 

I'm expected to finish the book to contract, which I intend to do by the new year at least in draft format. 

This is a big leap for me, and I'm honestly not sure how it will go. Especially when routines to uploading may need to align to a business schedule. Still waiting on confirmation of that. For now, all updates are set to draft.

There's also reader reception.  For now, I've been lucky with a handful of nice comments and wonderful reviews. Most due to swap reviews. 

Once this story is in more of a public eye, it could be a different reception.

It contains LGBTQ and an impression that US had more going on in Japan's mainland during their war with them in 1945.  So, it may spark some opinions on the matter. I guess historical fiction of any kind can do that.

Non-historical fiction writers don't realise the risk taken when creatively writing a perspective of a time that actually happened.  Although, I'm doing my best to keep perspectives fictional and hyperbole. There's a chance it might ruffle a feather.  Not much I can do on that matter, other than writing out the story as respectfully and objectively as I can.

I'll focus to finish.

What does this mean for Tapread?

I'm permitted to leave all the current chapters up on for the time being. Any new chapters will published on Webnovel exclusively going forward.  So, as far as Tapread goes, there are no changes made currently.

Once the book is completed, I'll likely need to remove Tapread's chapters. This will be a few months away. By this time, any potential readers will have been made aware of the version at Webnovel.

What does this mean for all other books?

They will still continue to Tapread, when I get around to them.  Right now, my focus is to finish Sunflower.

In Progress Works Strategy

Rundown of my strategy.

All in progress works will now be updated exclusively to 

My stories seem to be read there that's why. I feel supported at this site in some weird way. This helps my motivation to complete all my stories.

What does this mean?
All my in-progress books will be removed from Webnovel and Wattpad by the end of the month.  This will make my updates more regular and easier.  I hope to also affirm a solid readership rather than appearing fickle by being all over the place.  

I'm learning the hard way that having in-progress works on many sites is not a good thing.

I know I'm taking a punt on being the newcomer and small drop in the ocean compared to giants Webnovel and Wattpad.  I feel I have a better shot at attracting a readership there and I admire their catalogue they boast. On a business perspective, their support is professional and timely.  Similar to Wattpad. I hope they continue to be this way and evolve into a solid business.

When will this happen?
By the end of the month all works will be pulled.  I continue to update new content to Tapread.  I'm currently posting tweets to advise of this change as well as placing notice on the impacted books.

On Wattpad, the Seriphyn Knight series has already been pulled.  I'll be pulling TMS by the end of the month. 

On Webnovel, the "Deleted Story" image will go up on the 29th with a script on the book summary.

My Future for Wattpad and Webnovel?

I plan to exclusively continue the Original Music Makes series on Wattpad once I've completed my MV22 catalog.  Of course, continue my Ambassador duties that I hope I'm still privileged to perform.

Once my old series are out of the way.  I intend to post an exclusive contemporary boys love series for Webnovel. 

So, these great sites are still in the picture for my story plans.
