Now also on Facebook

Before I get to today’s OMF chapter, here’s some news: After getting myself a Twitter-account to share some news, I’ve finally convinced myself to also try my hand at Facebook. So if you’re there, you can come over and have a look. 😉

I guess I’ll also use this one to share some news but will probably also show some excerpts before I start new stories so you’ll know what I’m currently up to. 😊 Oh, and there might be some recommendations of stuff to read or watch just like on Twitter just … with some more explanation since I like to ramble so much. 😁

Announcement: Finders Keepers

I don’t think I have trouble staying committed but I do admit that I have trouble not getting involved in new things. 😅 Anyway, I have yet another story to announce: Finders Keepers!

Yan Su Su_Finders Keepers

This is what the story is about:

Warrior Hou Dong has had it. One more word from these bloody merchants and he and his men will ditch them in the desert. First, providing him with inaccurate information and now trying to snatch the beauty he found? Tch, they can keep their money to themselves! This treasure is worth far more than the measly remuneration they promised.

 

Before I start rambling again, let me just get to the most important point: I’ll start posting on August 3rd (so next Saturday) on Patreon and there’ll be a new chapter every Saturday. Please keep in mind that this is not a novel but a short story/novella instead so there’ll only be a few chapters. 😊 The novel will only have about 10-20 chapters but they’ll be longer than the ones I normally write. 😅

Announcement: First Upload OMF Revision Volume 2

I’m almost through the first part of the revision of Oh My. Fate?!s second volume so I’ll start uploading that today. Please be warned: There are a lot of completely new chapters in this volume so if you’re subscribed to my blog, you’ll get several notifications per email. I’ll try to update several chapters at once every time so that the notifications will hopefully get bundled. Not sure if that’ll work though but I think it’s worth a try. 😊

Overall, the update will likely take me two to three days. I’ll leave another note when I’ve finished.

New Short Story: Moving with a Bunch of Memories

Most of the time, I forget to announce this type of thing but I’ve published a new short story yesterday: Moving with a Bunch of Memories.

Yan Su Su_Moving with a Bunch of Memories

This is what the story is about:

Lu Han Ming and Yi Cai fell in love when they began their studies in university. Now that they’ve gotten their degrees, they’re preparing to move abroad together. Packing up everything they own sure brings back memories.

A nostalgic short story about old memories and new beginnings.

It’s 15 pages (says Amazon) so really a short story. If you have Kindle Unlimited (KU), you can read it for free. For everyone else, it’s 0.99$.

On that note: I have another three short stories out right now (Sweet Sweet Love, It’s Not a Business Trip If I’m with You, and It Still Tastes Best at Home – all three are also available via KU) and I’m going to make a bundle after I’ve written some more.
Since I intend to make not only an ebook but also a paperback version I want to write at least ten short stories to make it a decent size. And since I’m only working on short stories when it doesn’t impact my normal schedule too much … this will take until next year. 😶 I just thought I’d let you know beforehand in case you’d rather like to read them as a bundle. 😅

Announcement: OMF Revision – Upload #3

I’ve finished the revision of the first volume of Oh. My. Fate?! so I’ll start uploading the last batch of chapters starting tomorrow morning. I should finish with the upload this weekend. After I’m done, I’ll add a remark to the table of contents that the whole volume has been revised and delete the ‘°’ symbol that previously marked a revised chapter.

Afterward, I’ll start working on volume 2 and will go about it in the same way: The chapters will be posted daily on Tapas and ScribbleHub and when I’ve finished off a larger batch, I’ll announce it here and upload them together. I’ll also continue to indicate them the same way in the table of contents.

Oh. My. Fate?! Special: A Hairy Situation

On Tapas, Inksgiving is just around the corner so I felt that it’s time for another special. With Jing He’s inky-black hair in mind, I started to prepare a not-so-serious OMF story for you: A Hairy Situation!

Yan Su Su_Oh My Fate_Hairy Special_A Hairy Situation

This story is a ‘what if’ taking place after the end of the series. So just in case everyone lives until the last chapter and ends up with whom you think they should (*cough* Xiang Yu *cough*), this is what a festival would look like where everyone strives to be the fairest!

The first chapter will be up in a bit! I hope you’ll have fun reading 😊

Announcement: End of LWS and RMN release rate

You might remember that I asked your opinion on what I should do after LWS ends. Well, I’ve counted the answers on all sites and the majority was for a higher release rate of RMN chapters. So that’s what I’ll be doing. 😁

Since I’m a few weeks ahead with the chapters on Patreon and time them to make things easier for myself (because I forget stuff so easily – just look at the poor Tapas people that had to suffer twice because I didn’t update on time), we’ll start with two chapters a week at 18th June. Updates will be Tuesday’s and Thursday’s (so 18th and 20th in that week). I’ll be raising the release rate to three chapters a while later (I’ll announce that when I decide on the actual date).

I won’t update daily for now (although that’s the ultimate goal) because I want to edit the last two LWS volumes first and plan some other stuff. (Here’s a hint: There might be a surprise for OMF readers soon!)

Why I Won’t Post RSH on Wattpad and Webnovel

Some time ago I’ve announced that I’ll be uploading the “Oh. My. Fate?!”-prequel “Romancing the Son of Heaven: The 69 Stratagems of Dragon King Qiu Ling” (that was previously an exclusive patreon extra) for everyone free-to-read.
The first chapter is already up on several sites and there’ll be one each Sunday from now on. You might have noticed though that I haven’t uploaded the chapter to either Wattpad or webnovel. This is because I have decided that I won’t be uploading this series (and most likely all my upcoming series) there.
I know that the readers from both sites will be sad about this but it is a decision I had to make. In this post, I’d like to explain why.
