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 – Blood Boil

Chapter 2 is where things started to feel right. I was able to practice some old writing skills with this chapter because it focused on two characters that I’m very familiar with. They complain and bicker like two old friends that hate one another, and I loved that. However, I’ve decided to beef up their rivalry and pit them against one another a little more. In fact, today, I just discovered the ultimate twist for Yellow Diamond Hunter. Yes, I said the ultimate. This twist has put all of my other…

Rank Your Top 10 Barcode Characters

I enjoyed writing my series for one reason: The characters. At times, I felt like crying with them or their anger boiled in my chest. I supported them fully in their endeavors and hated each villain that opposed them. At the same time, I enjoyed constructing villains with more noble intent than my protagonists. The series was fun to write overall. However, I want to rank the top ten and compare it to your list. Here are my favorite characters in order of least to greatest: Arnold Mishimoto Starting of…

Barcode: Eyes That Kill Sketches

While I’m working hard at editing Barcode: Eyes That Kill, my cover artists are giving me preliminary sketches for the cover designs. We’re fighting to put out a very strong product by May or June. We’ll also have Barcode: Demon of Gods (the final book) ready not long after. For now, I want to show readers the early sketches of Kode and a new “love” interest known as Bailey. These are early, rough sketches, so don’t get too attached. And don’t judge them before seeing the color. Things really step…

Barcode: New War Order

How busy have I been with moving, writing a new novel, and studying for exams? So busy that I forgot to announce the latest book in the Barcode Series. Well, here you have it! Late as hell. Barcode: New War Order. I took special pride in writing this novel for many reasons. Let’s list them off in bullet form because it makes crap easier to swim through: Barcode: New War Order changed the way every book I write is formatted This novel finally shows Kode’s weak points The location isn’t…

Barcode: New War Order Release

Currently, I’m still in the process of developing New War Order. However, I haven’t had time to write any chapters for a long time. For those that read other post, you may have known that I didn’t have a job after relocating to Southern California. I searched diligently and couldn’t find anything until recently. Now, I’m working at a real estate company doing the same thing I do here, blogging. I manage SEO and social media websites. My goal is to drive traffic to websites. Though I knew a little…

Concept Art for Barcode: Cavern of Youth

It’s in! The artwork for Barcode: Cavern of Youth is finally here. I was so excited when I saw the concepts for Barcode: Legend of Apollo. Initially I assumed I couldn’t be surprised twice, but it happened. I love going to my Facebook and seeing the number “1” on my messages. I always know who it’s from. My cover art designer sends me regular updates about her process and asks a lot of questions. She’s pretty busy and doesn’t have time to read the novels. Because of that, we type…

An Update For Barcode: Cavern of Youth

I’m currently editing Book 2 of the Barcode series. I love writing. I really do. It takes my mind off things and lets me concentrate on my characters problems instead of my own. It’s an excellent way to avoid the real world. But writing and editing are difficult. I write quickly and make a lot of mistakes. My editing normally carries on for months, both before and after I receive comments from my editor. For this novel, Barcode: Cavern of Youth, I’ll actually have two editors. The first one is…
