Black Alchemy Hero – Lost

I can’t say that I learned much from writing this chapter. I’m presently on chapter 20 (I believe) of Cullinan Diamond Hunter and Leonardo and Kode have yet to interact. I intend to add more depth to their relationship and make fewer references to Barcode. 8 – LOST Kode and Leonardo hike up a long, muddy path. Fallen branches and large stones make the road difficult to navigate, but the men move quickly, like soldiers trained to endure these conditions. They travel through complete darkness with the sounds of various creatures…

Black Alchemy Hunter – Truth

The Yellow Diamond Hunter series was meant to have a lot of comedy. I don’t know where I lost that along the way. This chapter was my intent to really bring back the comedy. Yet again, I chose a more “cheesy superhero” route, which I don’t particularly enjoy. I’d probably sell a lot more books and make more money, but I just don’t care for this style too much. It’s way too predictable in my eyes. I’ve taken a more organic route recently. Just two days ago, I wrote Chapter…

Black Alchemy Hunter – Blind Trust

There’s not much to say here. Rereading this chapter made me realize that it didn’t hold much of a purpose. I will definitely have to work on giving each scene a purpose from here on. 6 – BLIND TRUST Thousands of people wait impatiently outside of Ordinance. Twice per year, the province practices fleeing the province. The citizens know to regroup in safe zones just outside of the main city, but no one is happy to endure their first real life drill in seven years. This area is under twenty-four…

Black Alchemy Hunter – RE+ASSEMBLY PART 1

This was the only way I could think of to reunite everyone from Yellow Diamond Hunter into one place. I searched for a reason to get them in one location, working together. From this process, I learned that everything doesn’t have to be so “cookie cutter.” My new route is to continue with the unique structure that built the Barcode Series. I have decided to run two (and a half) arcs. We’ll follow Sol’s story from the moment that he meets with Rayne, Julius and Kami as they discover a…

Black Alchemy Hunter – In Due Time

Chapter one is where things started to go wrong with Black Alchemy Hunter. <–That’s meant to be a joke, but I’m serious. I modeled Black Alchemy Hunter after The Avengers, which is really problematic. The Avengers do a great job of opening with the villains doing a number on the good guys. For this chapter, I pitted Kode against the villains, blurring the lines between who is good and evil. Or evil and eviler. I tried establishing Blas’ character, a womanizing power freak. He’s set up well enough, but his…
