May 2021

 Five months into 2021, maybe, just maybe, things are improving?

Let's jump in feet first to the real reason you're reading this. Updates:

Biggest update right out the gate, has to be Dungeon Walkers 1. Dungeon Walkers 1 - Kindle edition by Schinhofen, Daniel. Literature & Fiction Kindle eBooks @ The book came out on the 21st of last month. It's doing okay, not Mindblown good but still good. It's a different book as it does a few things different than my normal style.

The biggest might be the Fade-to-Black instead of explicit. I wanted to see how it went, there still a bit of lead up, but even the foreplay is not explicit. I've gotten some mixed comments on it, but the series will stay FtB.

The next biggest change was I tried my best to hint at things instead of info dumping. Not that I'm bad at info dumps, but I wanted to try slowly dripping the world knowledge into the book. This wasn't as accepted. I had thought I'd given enough hints to fill in the blanks, but it appears I didn't. A lot of people felt that more was needed. I've taken that one to heart, I'll be filling in more of the blanks in book 2 to help people out, and shift back to more of a mild info dump style.

I have high hopes for the series and while the reviews come in, overall it looks good. The trolls have come out of course, and some stalwarts didn't care for it as much, but we'll see if we can't at least help shore up the problems with the next in the series. I know a lot of people enjoyed the ending, and I hope you will too, no spoilers.

Okay onto other news:

AG7: Unexpected Dev-elopments came out on the 6th of April. I hope you who like the series have enjoyed the addition.

Right now your asking about AG8 probably, and I'm still waiting on making my research trip. I hope to get to it later this year, fingers crossed. If worse comes to worst, I'll be making the trip next year which will delay the book much longer than I ever wanted, it already has been honestly. But book 8 will be written, and I apologize for the delay.

Luck's Voice 3: Dangerous Gamble is the next book to be published. I'm looking at a June release, current projected date is the end of June, but I hope to get it out before that. For those who want a fix of LV3 early, Patreon is getting chapters now, and the 1st chapter is open to the public, so you don't even have to be a backer to get it. I've been ripping through it, and enjoying every moment. I hope you guys enjoy the story too. I'm most of the way through it. Big things coming for this book, but not all the things.

After LV3, I'll be stepping back into Binding Words. Man this coming book is going to be something. I'm really looking forward to what is to come, as I'm sure a lot of you are as well. And after BW we'll step back into Aether's Revival. Again I'm so looking forward to getting back to that series, some things are just going to be so much fun.

That's mostly it, May is my anniversary for Patreon and for being a full-time author, 4 years and 3 years respectively. It feels so much longer to me, and yet also as if it just started. Because of you, I'm able to focus on writing, and not listening to another boss. Though my current boss is an asshole, he demands I write everyday, or as close to it as I can get. But considering I love writing, it's not really a hardship.

So with one more big THANK YOU, to you. I hope you pop back in next month, and we can see what else might have come up since you read this.

A truly grateful author,

Daniel Schinhofen
