Volume Closing


Daybreak volume 3 chapter 18 is posted (here). This should wrap up any cliffhangers left by the previous chapters, and most of the major themes presented this volume.

There's still a few minor scenes left... in the Epilogue. But while I originally wanted to post this before my trip out of the country, it doesn't seem like it'll happen. So for people who wants to wait until the volume is finished (at least another month), there's still one more, plus I have to make my general editing pass. There may also be another Daybreak Development Diary on the topic that ends this chapter... because it is a very important topic to me and one of the central themes of Daybreak.

At the same time, I hope it shows a fresh direction to take fantasy compared to (most of) the stories you've read.

Beneath the mushroom cloud

The next chapter for Daybreak is out.

I made haste given the previous chapter's cliffhanger. Though this chapter probably doesn't give all the answers you need. Nevertheless, only 1.5 chapters (18 and epilogue) remains for vol3. I'd love to promise it'll also come out as soon as possible, but for the immediate time I have to focus on buying a new car since insurance declared my vehicle totaled -- all because their roadside assistance didn't tell the towing company that it was an AWD... (sigh)

A double release!

Well, more like 1.5. Chapter 15.5 is a long interlude scene that doesn't really fit anywhere, and would have been an "Extra Chapter" had it not been semi-important to the storyline. Meanwhile, Chapter 16 is the explosive one. Both would have came out a week ago, were I not waiting on Kadi =\

My holidays were plagued with repair issues for my car, so chapter 17 is still in progress instead of already in beta. In either case, 2.5 chapters left to go before volume's end. >_<

A very uncertain update.

I apologize for how late this one comes for Daybreak, and for those who have been worried. This chapter actually finished draft over a month ago. But I had some very late feedback from Kadi which also left me unsure of some contents. To be honest I'm still not quite satisfied with the result (mostly centered around the last scene of the chapter), but I can't think of any more changes. So of course, your feedback would be appreciated.

Chapter here.

I'm still working on chapter 16 unfortunately, but I'm going to try my best to finish drafting the new two chapters before the new year. So hopefully I can finish the volume by late January or early February of 2017.
