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

To Like A Man's Final Week

To Like A Man stats at the start of its final week

I am extremely grateful to all the Superstar Readers at Webnovel and TapRead who has read and showed their support for this story. The positive reception I have received was beyond expectation.
Webnovel and TapRead folk have been very kind and awesome.  

As much as this story is supported, I had to make a hard decision towards its continuation.

In recent times, I came up against a wall with my writing that made me take a step back and review my perspective of why I want to write.

In my newbie stages, it was all about fun and getting all the junk in my head to an explicit version.  I was clueless (still are) and naive. As I wrote on, I realized the impact of words and how much a response, phrase, context or intention can cause to another.  

I'm not a perfect human and never will be.  I will say things that may peeve people or write on scenarios and aspects that could come across as insensitive or too sensitive to others without being aware. I come from a hard (slightly cynical) life and have had to be resilient to a lot around me. This has led to an insensitivity in my make up. I'm aware of this shortfall and do my best to be mindful.

So, with this in mind, I made a decision to focus my stories to a singular vision and to a specific two categories that I enjoy the most. This brought me to my vision for 2022. 
☆ My 2022 Vision: to promote diverse and inclusive fantasy and historical fiction stories, which would contribute to pushing a future forward.☆
Whilst this story is diverse and inclusive, it's contemporary.  

It was a heartbreaking decision to drop TLAM since I've grown fond of Adrian, Bradley, Adam and Jace, as well as all the other characters in this journey. 

I'll keep it offline and continue to work on it in the background. I see it as a treasure I need to bury, so I can rediscover it and make it shine brighter and better than ever before.

For the present time, this would be a fond farewell to TLAM. 

The story will be up until 01.06.19. Afterwards, it'll be removed from all channels. It has already been removed from TapReads.

I'll do one final post on this story to show its end stats at curtain closure.

Thank you Readers again for giving this story a go. It has been fun. I hope for your support towards my other works.

The Fourth Zaldizko

https://www.wattpad.com/story/177380107-the-fourth-zaldizko

The hunt is on to find the last of the Gat Shiem Brothers. Famine learns that Pesti is not in Hell's Labyrinth, but in an urisen house somewhere hidden in Doll's Lane, which is the red light scene of Apocalypse's Second District.

Strange and terrible things are happening to the people of this district with blame pointed at the Evadale Knight Order due to the mishaps of Hell's Labyrinth. People are frightened about a baleful rider in grey stalking the streets at the dead of night on a ghost horse with his bow and arrow ready to claim an unwitting soul.

Famine is not deterred, focused on saving his baby brother. In order to do so, he must experience the darkest depths of the human ego. This time, he must face it on his own with the Baleful Rider passing judgement on his soul.

This is volume #2 of the Seriphyn Knight Chronicles.

My Vision 2022 - Let's Push the Future Forward

"Let's push the future forward, one notch at a time."

This is my story 2022 vision, where I aim to produce a catalogue of fantasy and historical fiction stories to promote this vision.

In my stories, I'll continue to promote diversity and inclusiveness the best I can. 

I'm not a perfect human, so I'm going to slip up and likely piss someone off.  I do my best to be thoughtful and consider impacts.  There's only so much consideration one brain can manage.  If I do slip up, I will fess up to my sins and apologize.

On to the vision.

The stories to line up this catalogue are as follows:


  • Zaldizko
  • The Fourth Zaldizko
  • Reborn Legacy
  • Dragonieth
  • To My Sunflower


These will be my active stories, which I am to complete and self publish by 2022.


Why Zaldizko, The Fourth Zaldizko and Reborn Legacy?
These three belong to the Seriphyn Knight Chronicles series. In this series, I promote the inclusiveness of sign language as another form of communication. Also, being with a limitation (e.g mute or deaf) does not make a person incapable.

In Zaldizko, Colin Treinaton communicates with sign language as he has no voice.  He is recognized as a highly capable character and skilled magician/magis.  If it wasn't for his help, the protagonist (Famine) would be spider fodder.

Why Dragonieth?
This my dragon-ish fantasy story containing an ensemble of main characters. It includes LGBTQ themes since one of the main characters is gay and there are a handful of support characters in same-sex relationships or in love with people of the same sex.

Why To My Sunflower?
An ensemble perspective from two key characters who are both connected in a same-sex relationship. This story also highlights less abled returned soldiers and aims to draw out the innovation and resilience of the people during the end of WW2 and Pacific War.

It's a risk. Since I'm promoting more of a unity between nations rather than the separation that was the war.  I know I'm going to get slammed and criticized heavily for it. I understand and respect this.


My Catalog Vision 2022
I will pour all my dedication to completing on these stories.

Seriphyn Knight Chronicles is Now

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.

~ ★ Zaldizko★  ~


The first book of the series, which I released on the 15th of February this year.

Paid Channels
It has been gaining slow, but steady momentum in paid channels.  Kobo and iTunes continue to be my high revenue channels, whilst Amazon barely kicks off.  Google Play was a surprise new player, which saw to some nice purchases.  I'll continue to only use Amazon for hardback sales and skip their kindle avenue in the coming book campaigns.

Free Read Channels
Webnovel, has surprised me the most with the high support from readers over there.  The Quest-a-Views campaign I have running continues to boost viewing interest.  The almost contract signing was a nice form of reassurance that this story has high potential in the Asian markets.

Wattpad performance is a striking contrast to Webnovel, and not for readership potential. Its experimental read, discovery and ranking system impacted on this story's performance. If it wasn't for recent user group competition campaigns, this story would not be discoverable at all at this site.  I will continue to monitor this site's potential.

It did receive 3rd/4th placing in a community user group awards for the Action/Adventure category this year, saving the story from being dead fish in Wattpad waters.

~ ★ Reborn Legacy★  ~




The story that started it all.  It's only available to read at Webnovel, whilst it's in an in progress state.  I aim to release this story by the end of the year via Kobo, iTunes and Google Play, continuing to use Amazon only for hardback sales.

Its performing slow with little pickup, which makes me think that strong female protagonists aren't as popular as effeminate gay male leads with sass and show of respect towards others.



~ ★ The Fourth Zaldizko★  ~



Cover courtesy of Chryiss.  I wanted something different and more suited to the readership market of Webnovel.  Aside from the title being a tad dark,  I love it.  It really matches the mood of the book with Famine coming out of the darkness.  Brilliant.

This one is also only available to read at Webnovel whilst it's being written at the same time as Reborn.  

The reception for this book is picking up pace with some supportive comments and interest from readers over there. 

Webnovel has been a fantastic story sharing site in general.

Reborn and Fourth are due for paperback releases at the end of this year.  Fourth I had earmarked for earlier towards August/September.

After These?

After these three are four more stories: one between 4th Zaldizko and Reborn, then two following Reborn.  This will complete the Seriphyn Knight Chronicles series and a decade long "must do" saga.

I will have finally finished what I had started.
