    Bill, are you on the payroll?


    Personally, I don’t give a rats Ass about project 3 or his gods eye. In my opinion those are just more obstacles to the Land. You can add them to all the other pushed crap that a lot of us don’t care about.

    Haha no. But I did create a thread to tell folks info I’d like to hear. If you don’t want to be notified then just hit the button.

    I like hearing updates and complaining that they’re substanceless too much to be on the man’s payroll, haha.

    Only if the updates provide any substance like word count, editing stage, or early chapters, but it's always "writing a lot", which you know is BS.

    Yeah, being so vague really makes me question where the book is. Or isn’t.

    My feeling is that he hasn’t worked much on it.

    Its easier to come up with ideas then it’s to place them on paper. I could honestly say I’m working on something while just creating ideas for the story. If I were pursuing a carton, TV mini series, movies, and writing two new book series how much time would I have to spend on the old series?

    I used to use that line when I had papers due in school. I was “working on it” until the last minute when I actually had to put pen to paper.

    I PM-ed her and she said she’s seen parts of the new book for herself but they don’t do hard updates like we want. So, we either take her at her word or we don’t.

    Bill, I don’t think there is much doubt that she has seen parts of it. The cover, the title page, a copyright page, a partial contents page, chapter one, chapter two, or maybe even the preface. I just don’t believe there is much of it considering the time that has past. We would have seen some information about it released if he had much written. Remember people pay to get peeks of it. Do you really think he would make his patrons wait, expecting them to continue paying for nothing. Really Bill how many months has it been? I don’t think there is any doubt Aleron has made enough money on his books to be very independent. Independent enough to where he isn’t concerned with churning out books.

    How AK showed Geneva the book.....

    AK: "here's book 9!" *Hands Geneva a book*
    Geneva: *opens it and looks at it confused*
    "Everything is blank"
    AK: yes, but it will be the book eventually. We should do a Facebook update telling them I'm making progress."
    Geneva: *looks even more confused*
    " How is this progress? "
    AK: *confidently states* "it's progress because I decided to name it Mayhem after telling fans that it was almost done for over a year"
    Geneva: " I'll just make a contest to distract them.... Again. "

    Maybe current patrons are paying 10 $ a mo just bacause... support AK... you know rich americans... anyhow patreon should only pay if he writes at least a 4-5 page chapter or bigger every month so now we would have at least 150 pages or 50% of book and AK would be able to finiah this in 4 weeks. He previously had written books in 1.5 - 3 months


    So questions are:
    1. What is AK doing now? What he is really doing? No guessing, investigate!!!
    a. He is translating comic books to chinese, mandarin, japanese, korean etc...
    Hes working on manga video/animation...
    b. hes creating more comics....
    c. hes going to rpg conventions(and he most def not writing then cause drinking and eating with his buddies)
    d. board game??
    e. nextflix parties...
    f. advertising, packaging products... etc..
    g. what is he really doing?

    I'd like somebody to ask geneva how many hours on avg did he spend writing the book in last two weeks? 0? 20? 40?

    Oh, I’m in agreement with you. And I know the patrons haven’t seen jack because you can go to his patreon and see that he hasn’t posted any of his new book. I think he does have them paying for nothing, myself.
    I wish he was more concerned with getting (very good!) books out. Before covid he seemed more interested in conventions and marketing himself than writing, IMO, for instance. This apparently carried on into the pandemic when he could have been writing like crazy.
    I get it because I could have been working out like crazy during the pandemic but instead I got fatter, haha. I did expect a bit more of him, though, especially when he put deadlines out.

    Beats the crap out of me. She says, though, that she and her assistant take care of point f so he can just write all the time. Well, all the time he’s not out in nature or at conventions, I guess.
