Hello, everyone! I hope you’re all staying safe out there. I’m still living as introverted as ever, but I can’t complain if I’m healthy, right?
Before I get started, I realized shortly after writing the previous blog that I left out a small event that happened in early July, so I’ll talk about it here. You see, this website (the one you’re on now) has been up a year, but I hadn’t set everything to auto-renew and … kinda forgot about it. Oops. So yeah, I had to take a while to get the website back up and running, and this was made especially difficult because of the verified security thingy most websites need to have. Those are the thing that, if you don’t have one, pop up and say “This website is not secure. You shouldn’t go here.” I have it fixed now, but it’s a pain to do it manually, especially since I forgot how I did it the first time…
On to new news, you might have noticed that the title of this blog is “Sneak Peeks”. That’s for two reasons. The first reason is that I’m going to link you to the (tentative) book cover for volume two. You can find it right here. As you can see, it’s a rare sight of Jorri showing her anger towards an unknown, smug-looking person. I won’t go into detail/spoilers about what is happening in this scene, but considering the few times we’ve seen Jorri’s full-on rage, you know this isn’t going to be a simple encounter.
The second reason for the title is something I’m currently working on for Instagram. As I said earlier, I’ve been living the introverted life, so I’ve had nothing of note to post on there. I’ve always felt like that site is for people who have things they can show off, and I just don’t have that (at least, nothing of interest of that relates to my book or reading in general). Recently, however, I’ve thought of a plan.
Hopefully, by the next time I post in this blog, I’ll have gone through the first volume of Magi of Gaia and snipped out a ton of quotes/scenes that I like, and I’ll post them to the Instagram account with some comment about that scene (if there’s anything to say). I’ll also do that with what I’ve written in the second volume, though everything in there is subject to change (subtly or not). Don’t worry; there’ll be no spoilers. I hate when people ruin a story for me, so I’ll make sure to not do that to anyone else. I just thought putting my writing on display would be a good way to draw people in. Let’s hope it works!
This was a longer one than usual, huh? Alright, well, I’ll let you get back to your usual lives, but first, for those that read this (assuming there’s at least one of you), send me your favorite quote(s) from Magi of Gaia, and I’ll see if I can post it to the Instagram. I’d be interested to see what people liked the most about the first volume. Keep in mind, the quotes I post will be short, but if you want to just tell me your favorite part, I’d like to hear from you in general!
Stay safe and healthy!
