Hey there maties,

Before I get into the crew update. I'll just be letting you all know about my new thank you system for favourites. Since it's gotten to the point where I can't keep up with thanking everyone. I've decided instead to just feature random people who favourite my work in my journal. I'll just pick a handful each time and let loose ^^. I think it'll be better and more useful than a thank you note. Hope it works out ^^

*Turn pirate accent on*

Now then, just a wee crew update. Prompt be comin' out tomorrow (most likely). In th' mean time, I've got some bounties t' award:

First, t' th' lovely Miss Miyu :iconmiyu713: for the following pieces:

:thumb347871708::thumb341496250::thumb340974048::thumb339980364::thumb331652070::thumb342861819::thumb335959570:

I'll be awardin' a total of 37,000 gems worth. Now I know she told me she only calculated 17,000 owin' t' the difference in lit. pop 24, but I decided what th' hell it's still an achievement so 37,000 it is. Congratulations Miss Miyu, yer Captain be proud of ye. This brings her total up t' 44,500 gems. Well done lass ^^

Next, t' Mr. Chase :iconmaj0rmaremolester: fer:

:thumb329481964::thumb312732535::thumb295683491:

A total of 3,000 gems. Correct me if I'm wrong I wasn't sure which pop ye were claimin' fer or if it were valid ^^; This brings his total t' 11,000 gems. Well done lad ^^

That be bringin' th' bounties t' a close. If th' rest o' ye have somethin' t' claim, bring it up here eh? ^^

PREVIOUS ENTRY - I'm Still Alive :3 *Plays Big Bang Song*

Note: Here is the song I'm referring to in the title - www.youtube.com/watch?v=48cxW2…

Arrr me hearties,

Tis is a fine night fer piratin' :3 Anywho, I figure I best let ye all know:

Yer Captain be back in full swing now! I'll have the crew updated, my dear friend has been waiting weeks to get his membership and of course bounties will be done up tomorrow ^^

As fer tonight, I'll be releasin' the first piece from me new book '50 Little Glasses'. Aye the term 50 has been ruined by '50 Shades Of Grey' not because the book is bad, but because internet and media portrayed two completely different sides, one lovin' it and one hatin' it. I have never read the book so honestly, can't say much about it. However, the number is symbolic because I will be doing 50 Shot-Glass poems in an updated style for this new book.

*Switch to proper accent* :iconlikeasirplz:

I realised part of the problem with the Wolven Pride was that I never advertised for it prior to the release. No one got a chance to sample it. This time however will be different and I hope to build up interest in '50 Little Glasses' all the way up until its release date.

As for the recent journey that I've been on. Well in one of the recently released family guy episodes, Stewie talks to Brian about finding his voice as an author. I've found that advice to actually be very helpful in trying to improve your works.

Hence, I set out on a little journey (not so much physically, but more mentally) to try and find my voice again. I thought I'd found it in my urban style works but that was only a single facet of me. During this journey I returned to all those things that have inspired me to do work in the way that I do.

Surrealist art has played a huge role in my life, helping me to imagine things outside of the box and I've found many of my recent works to lack that. The wacky zany rhymes of the past have also been surprisingly dry as of late and so I read some children's books to get that back into me. I spent a whole day reading nothing but creepy-pasta to revive the undead monster that has been sleeping for so long; bringing the edge back to my sadistic nature.

Most of all though, was the discovery that I haven't actually changed or evolved much as a writer. Honestly, I'd just been blocking out parts of myself. In fact, rather than going completely in one direction or another, I've found that I'm at my best when I'm simply taking bits and pieces from everything. Doing just urban works or just romantic works or just dark works, doesn't suit me. As a human, I have my ups and downs. Similarly there are ups and downs, with a couple of laughs of thrown in, in the things that I write. Hence, I hope to bring that entire spectrum back while working on '50 Little Glasses', it will contain a full range and poetry and that is what I will be sharing with you all.

If I don't reply to messages right away, please be patient as usual; gonna get my broke ass a job once I graduate from college. Been applying to a lot of big firms so somedays I might be busy. Gotta keep up with physical training too. Anyway, I'm gonna start clearing out messages again. Hope to entertain you all soon my dear friends ^^

How much might this book cost? I would have gotten Wolven Pride, but sadly, I am unable to download e-books. My computer throws a fit and so does the wi-fi. Sorry the rum is gone. I'll find more, cap'n.

Bwahaha, this one would also be an e-book and it'll be more expensive than the WOlven Pride since it would count as a complete book, general prediction is $2.99

Mhhh... Well, I suppose I could download at a friend's house. Will it be available on google books?

I am not sure, you can check there. Smashwords distributes to a number of platforms, I'm not sure how many in total. Chances are it might be on google books ^^

However I recommend downloading from Smashwords itself, as you can choose the right format and they explain which format suits which device.

Woo, Big Bang rocks!:happybounce:
I don't think the term "50" has been completely ruined... Especially if it's completely out of context, like in your book. Don't worry, I'm sure people won't associate it with 50 Shades of Grey xDD Good luck, I will look forward to reading your new pieces!

Another book! :O

I haven't finished Wolven Pride yet, but it's really good so far. I just love how the writing is so poetic, I can actually feel like I'm in the war. I'll try to finish it this weekend :)

Maybe it could remove me of my own mental block. Maybe not.
