Hey guys, I'm excited to announce the largest 'launch' in Wuxiaworld history!  Divine Throne of Primordial Blood and The Sword & the Shadow, currently translated by our friends on Volare, have now come to Wuxiaworld as well, for a massive combined launch of over a THOUSAND new chapters for you to read!  Translators Ryogawa and gandalfs_socks (best username ever) have been super excited to join Wuxiaworld, and have spent the past two months upping their own translation speeds to the signature 2/day speeds which Wuxiaworld is known for!  These are two great, experienced translators, and I'm proud to officially welcome them to Wuxiaworld.

The Sword and the Shadow, translated by Ryogawa, is a western fantasy novel which tells the tale of an orphaned boy who gains entry into a thieves' guild and enters a world of assassins, blades, magic, and action.  There's a heavy focus on character interactions, conflicts, and even a bit of romance.

Divine Throne of Primordial Blood, translated by gandalfs.socks, tells the story...

Hey guys, I'm excited to let you know that Physician's Odyssey is now out of sneak peek and available for everyone to read, with 60 chapters to start!  This is a modern wuxia novel that is part of our big 2019 kickoff to more genres.  Authored by Smoking Pipe Bro and translated by Wuxiaworld veteran Thyaeria (who is also working with us on The Great Ruler and Tales of Demons & Gods), this Zongheng novel brings us the story of the brilliant physician Su Tao.  Su Tao is a medical genius, but just wants to maintain the pharmacy his grandfather left him... but fate keeps dragging him in unexpected ways!  He's forced to become a hospital chief, his lover gets kidnapped, someone tries to demolish his pharmacy... what's a man to do, except use his diabolically good medical skills to torment the hell out of those who are making his life miserable?

Physician's Odyssey is going to be a great novel and a breath of fresh air from pure cultivation/levelling novels that we've seen so much of here.  I strongly urge everyone to...

Hey guys, after a month of really hard work, I'm excited that our new VIP system and in-house ebook system is now alive and functioning!  You can now purchase and permanently own full ebooks in PDF/Mobi/epub versions, as you please, and read them on whatever devices you like.  You can take a look at it right here to see all the details, or just click on the big 'VIP' button.  NOTE - For former sponsors of completed novels who qualify for free ebooks or discounts, you'll be seeing them in your 'my ebooks' library very soon so just sit tight!  We're ironing out some of the kinks in paginating ALL Wuxiaworld in-house sponsorships from the past year, but it's just a matter of time.

Now, there are a lot of things upcoming in the next month, as we discussed in this post.  Here's a roadmap so everyone knows what's up!

1) App: The app is looking really good and close to release, we just wanted to test out the VIP on desktop first as part of the rollout.  I estimate that the Android version of the app should be out sometime...

Hi everyone!  It's not been too long since we launched our last novel, but now we come with yet another excellent one, with a new translator to boot - Heaven's Devourer, translated by Midasthefloof!  Midas is actually a veteran translator, having done over a thousand chapters elsewhere with other teams, and I'm very excited to have him start on Wuxiaworld with us!  As for the novel, Heaven's Devourer, it's actually a bit different from the others.  For fans of 'Journey to the West', also known as the legends of the Monkey King/Sun Wukong/Sun Goku, this 17k novel might just be right up your alley!  It's something of a Xianxia re-imagining of this classic tale, with our main character Crown Prince Wu Yu being bestowed the Ruyi Jingu Bang (aka the Monkey King's size-changing staff) by an Immortal as he ventures off on his journey.  It's a very solid novel, and I think you'll love it.

Midas has kindly started us off with a full SEVENTY-FIVE chapters for launch, and has committed to the Wuxiaworld standard of 2 chapters...

Everyone, after a rather long year or so, I am absolutely delighted to announce that Book 1 of Coiling Dragon is finally live on Amazon’s Kindle store!  We have edited (and will continue to revise and beautify) the entire Coiling Dragon Saga and have taken it live on Amazon as an eight book saga.  The second through eighth books are in preorder for now, but should also be coming out in the next few days as we finalize and jump through the last hoops Amazon has created for us.

This is Wuxiaworld’s first series, first completed series, and first completed series on Kindle. If you enjoyed it in the past, I hope for your support now as well!  Amazon’s KUP program requires that any new novels be exclusive to Amazon for a few months, so we’ve taken it down Wuxiaworld for now, but rest assured we will eventually come up with ways to bring it back up here as well for periods of time!

The eight books are: Coiling Dragon, Dragonblood, Baruch Rising, Gods of Yulan, the Infernal Plane, the Four Divine Beasts, the Planar Wars,...

Wuxiaworld is hiring once again!  We are now looking for up to TWO part-time front-end technomancers/programmers/UI designers to assist our current Technomancers in beautifying and improving our front-end functionality.  Specifically, we need people with all of the following skills: HTML, CSS, JavaScript (experience with React, Angular 2+).

Since we do have a lot of applicants, priority will be given to applicants with UI overhaul experience, and even better would be expertise in ASPNET Core (NOT regular ASPNET) and MySQL, as those are what our backend is based off of.  For those who are selected, we can start off with a monthly rate of $1500/month and the eventually possibility of promotion to full-time if interested. If you fulfill these requirements, please email us at closed.  Emails that have actual CV's and samples/portfolios of previous work will be prioritized. Thank you! This is a remote position.

NOTE: The manhua recruitment post was a resounding success, with half a thousand applicants that we are currently...

Now, for a much shorter announcement than the last two.  For several months now, we've been working on a super secret project, and it's time to accelerate it!  We have a new platform called Wutopia Comics (Wuxia Utopia) coming up soon, and everything is very nearly ready.  We are getting ready to launch soon, but we need to speed up the pace of manhua translation even further!  These are paid work-for-hire translation jobs, starting off at $40-50/3000 Chinese characters (roughly).  Those who do well and have the capacity to go 'full-time' may even have a chance to work with us as novel translators, at a rate which will be even higher! If you are interested, please email us at recruitment closed for now!  Cheers!

NOTE - this is purely translating only, our own team will handle all the other stuff like typesetting, scanning, cleaning, etc.!

First, I want to thank everyone for their opinions and thoughts on how we should overhaul completed novels. We've reviewed nearly 2000 comments across multiple platforms and forum, and while we haven't responded to everything I can promise I HAVE read it all.  First, I'm going to briefly go into some of the things which were discussed which may or may not work, because I don't want people to think I ignored anything. I'm putting those in 'spoiler' tags so people who don't care can skip it.  Then, we'll talk about what we're going to do! It'll be a mixture of modules 2 and 3, with many of your ideas put in as well.

Paypal/Other Payment Options - We realize this is something people have been requesting for some time now. I know it still hasn't been done, but it's not because we don't want your support and money! Since we initially integrated Stripe, we've mostly been relying on Stripe's analytics and back-end suite for managing subscriptions, but that means for technical reasons it's very hard for...

First, some good news coming up!  The Wuxiaworld app is almost finished and fully functional.  While we're doing some final testing, it's basically ready-to-go once we get our corporate accounts up and running for Google Play and the App Store.  We took a lot more time than anticipated because the original plan was to work with Zongheng and use their Chinese app and development team as our skeleton; however, their business model of pay-per-chapter (and thus the underlying code) proved so different from theirs that in the end, we decided to junk it and redo the app backend from scratch.  Technomancer Mitch has done wonders, and while our Zongheng partners may be helping us with UI design and coding later on, this first version will be purely homegrown! It'll also have long-requested features, like the ability for VIP subscribers to download chapters.

However, now that we're getting ready to launch the app, I can no longer put off something I've been loath to make a decision on; namely, completed novels, of which...
