Here it is, folks!

Nicoy’s video of the drawing process for Flash Renegade Book Cover #4. Enjoy!

Just a quick reminder to everyone that there will always be slight revisions & tweaks before publication. So once it’s published, it’ll be set in stone.

Galactic Log 1.7 – A Meaningless Existence (Rho Tiarmstrong)

I take a deep breath and press the button for the intercom speaker.

“Who is it?” I ask in a huff.

I view the tiny monitor before me, but then I remember it’s broken––ancient technology. There’s no way I’ll be able to see anything through this hunk of junk.

“Special delivery for Room 429,” says a cheery voice on the other line.

I’m getting a little impatient as to why this individual is disturbing me at this hour. “Just tell me what it is. I don’t recall ordering any packages.”

“It’s not a package.”

“Then, what the fuck is it?” I shout out, pounding on the door in anger.

“Miss Rho, is that you?”

“Whaa…? How do you know my fuckin’ address?” I ask, looking through the peephole.

I see the eyes of a yellow robot staring right back at me. It looks like a small saucer as it floats around in mid-air. The sliding door opens and I realize this thing is carrying bags of groceries, full of food.

“Don’t you remember me, Miss Rho? It’s me. Nina,” Nina says, blinking with her electronic lights for eyes.

I tilt my head. “I never saw you in my life.”

“You look awfully different, Miss Rho. Can I come in and put these down?” she asks.

Stepping back, I let the little robot come inside the apartment. The door slams shut though.

“Just drop the bags over there and get out,” I say, pointing in the direction of the dirty kitchen.

Nina glances around with her eyes. “Wow, this place is a mess, Miss Rho…”

“I don’t care how you know my name, but I want you out. Do you hear me? Put the bags on the ground and just go. Now.” I want her to leave pronto.

“I can cook and clean for you, Miss Rho. Would you like that?” she asks, smiling at me.

I raise my brow in surprise. “You can cook? Clean too?”

Because I obviously can’t do any of those things, I think to myself.

“Yes, Miss Rho. I can make practically anything you want. What would you like to eat?”

“Wait, wait a second!” I step in front of Nina and force her to stop. “How in the world? I mean––how did you get here exactly? How did you find me?”

Nina places the bags on the floor, since the kitchen counter is stacked with unclean plates. “Wasn’t it you that called me, Miss Rho? I used to care for you and your sister, but I went out on my own and found a job.”

“Excuse me? I have a sister?” I’m so confused at the moment. “That’s impossible.”

“Your sister is the Commander of the Aeron. Did you lose your memory again, Miss Rho? It seems to happen quite a lot these days.”

“Now that I think about it, you do look strangely familiar…like I’ve seen you before,” I say as her words ring true in my ears.

“Miss Rho, I have to be honest with you…this place needs some serious work. There’s no room for anything. I can help you clean up, but if you don’t want me here, Miss Rho, I’ll gladly leave.” Nina starts floating toward the exit.

I jump over a few boxes and block the door. The towel falls to the floor. Embarrassed by the situation, I cover my right breast and private parts.

“You know, I-I think you should stay. I don’t know what you are…um yellow saucer thingy. I-I could maybe use your assistance…somewhere around here. What’s your name again, little bot girl?”

Nina picks up the towel and examines it. “It’s Nina. Miss Rho, I think we should start the laundry and get you some clean clothes to put on first.”

“That would be a great idea, ‘cause I haven’t got a clue as to where any of my clothes are…”

15 Hours Left And Here’s My Final Thoughts

This Was A Great Learning Experience

onion-avatar135I’d like to take this moment to thank everyone who donated to my Kickstarter project. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I truly appreciate it. Even though I will not reach my goal, you decided to take a chance on me. For that alone, I’m very honored. When everything is expired, you will not be charged at all and your donations will be swiftly returned.

If you’re still interested in this project and would like to know any kind of updates, please visit my profile page with links to Patreon, Facebook, my Author’s blog, and more. I have several sites listed for you, just in case.

This didn’t stop me by the way. It only makes me more determined to finish. However, it will be a slower process from now on due to a limited budget. It may take me a couple of years to finish. If you have that kind of patience then more power to you.

I’ll also try other methods and see if I can get a little funding for this project somewhere else. If at first you don’t succeed, then try try again. Walt Disney failed 13 times before his dream of building an amusement park even became a reality.

Many artists, including writers, who we consider famous today were not even recognized in their own time period, until after their deaths. It just goes to show you that success is not always determined by how much money you make in your pocket. You just need passion and commitment.

Thank you so much for your time, for reading this post. Have a wonderful day everyone and take care.

Final Book Cover #4 – Bloody Vs. Clean

onion-avatar004

Here’s the final book cover for Flash Renegade, but I haven’t decided if I’ll stick to the Bloody one or the Cleaner version. I love them both, but the clean one shows more details. We’ll see how it goes. 😀

Once Nicoy’s done with the video of her drawing process, I’ll post up a link so you can watch the music video. 🙂
