Message content: 1) Correction about the end of SaMo. 2) Update about my next translation project. 3) Update about an upcoming non-translation project.
1) In the previous message I said I anticipated uploading the final chapter to the top sponsor tier sometime in December. I was completely wrong about that. It will be several weeks later. Sorry for the confusion, I just had a major brain fart in that regard. I hate having total misinformation out there, so I wanted to issue this correction.
2) If you follow me on Twitter you might have my tweets about what my next translation project will be. Long story short, there has been some confusion about who will pick up Keyboard Immortal (and when). I'd originally thought I would do it, only to have the novel show up on the front page with Starve listed as the translator. Needless to say, I was a bit salty at having what I had been told would be my next project suddenly taken up by another translator without notice to me. Of course, there was more to the story. Without getting into the details, I'll just say that there is still a possibility that I will translate it, although the chances seem slim (for one thing, at this point, I'm not sure I even want to translate it). Something you can do to help is to check out the story and leave a review, either positive or negative. That will be a big help (both to me and RWX/WW), in deciding how to handle the translation and public release.
3) If I don't pick up Keyboard Immortal, I most likely will take a break from translating to focus on original works. I already have a cool concept that I've been working on for a while now, and I want to complete it and self-publish it on Amazon. It's a cultivation novel, but with a twist. Sort of a genre fusion. I don't want to go into too much detail until I actually get close to finishing it. In any case, I would again encourage you to sign up for my e-mail list. It only takes a moment, and I DO NOT send out annoying spam. The newsletter only goes out a few times per year with critical updates, and I'll use it to release novel teasers, find beta readers, announce the release date, etc.
Thanks for your readership, support, etc.! You guys are the best!
