I am very happy to announce to everyone that my new original fiction, Hawkeye K.O., have been accepted as a brand-new serial in Jukepop. With the acceptance, I am truly excited to write this serial and I can finally establish myself as a serious fiction writer, even though it’s part-time just for now. You may now find the entire serial exclusively here at this link.
But then, I also need your help as well. Though you do not need to sign up for an account to read the first chapter, you do need to sign up for an account,1 as well as among other things as well. Not only do I need all of you to sign up and read, but I also need your votes as well. Reviews and constructive criticism is always welcome, but the most important here are the votes. If you’re curious why the votes are very important for Jukepop writers, just simply check out their About section in their website. Maybe from there, if you are a writer yourself, you may find yourself of interest in becoming a Jukepop writer yourself.2 Let’s all support each other independent writers and show the world that life would be boring without originally-written stories, especially on the internet!
Jukepop has been around for awhile now, although I only learned about this writer community through the NaNoWriMo website. Although I did not participate in last year’s NaNoWriMo because of other commitments, I have been a long time participant and a four-time winner of the said writing event. I was rather happy to see a writing community that is really unique and really does give us a chance to receive support just by posting a chapter one at a time instead of publishing the entire book and then get paid right after. I was excited and ecstatic, but then at that time, I had my hands full and had no inspiration to write any stories which even includes my unfinished (Card Captor Sakura) fanfiction.
During that period, when I purchased my brand-new PC to replace my now dead laptop early this year, I found myself getting immersed in to online MMORPGs3 once again. It was through my video game character for the game Aura Kingdom that I finally found inspiration to write Hawkeye K.O. But I’ll write more in-depth about that portion a little later.
So, here’s a short promotional blog entry and I hope I would be able to reach out to all of you. I’m also working on the first chapter of the story itself, so stay tuned for that.
