Another Harem story?

Or actually, a series this time. No, this one isn't a sequel to the last one (I don't even know where to start with a sequel to the last one), this is a new one, and it's going to be a series. How long it runs will depend of course on sales. I'm passing the halfway point today in the first book, I'm thinking each of the books will probably be around 55K to 60K, which seems to be the size of most of the harem books out there today.

This one will also have LitRPG aspects to it, because I got complaints with the Shadow book because I took out the bits that explained how his powers progressed. The current plan is to publish the first book before the end of this month (I'm hoping to have it finished next week) and then follow with a new book every three to four weeks (the first book won't be pubbed until the second book is done, and so on). I'm actually head down and writing hard, 7K to 10K words a day.

Right now I'm thinking the story will go out under the Stryvant pen name, because yeah, there are some sex scenes, and yeah, definitely gonna be harem. I just hope people like it, I know I'm enjoying writing it.


  1. I did not place the comment of the Shadow book until the pen name at the bottom. Enjoy most of your series but waiting for more POI books. Thanks for continuing writing, oh and if possible I loved the dwarves of the "days of future past" series any way to get some short stories from them?

  2. Thanks for the suggestion on the short stories, I hadn't thought about that, and it's a good idea, I'll put it on the whiteboard.

    There will be more POI books, but right now I'm in a position where I need to follow up on the initial Shadow book with a new series for a couple of reasons (one of which is financial). I'm hoping that working through this series will give me some ideas for how I want to handle one of the items that is currently making it difficult for me to move forward on POI #8. I'm just not sure at what time this year that book will be released.

    Thanks again,

  3. So you're expecting to release at least the start of the new harem series and POI #8 this year? Or are you planning on another along the way?

    1. I've almost finished the first book in a new harem series. It should be released by the end of this month. I'm then hoping to release each new book in that series about one every three to four weeks.
      Which is a rather ambitious writing/delivery timetable. The first draft of the first book is almost complete, I'm hoping to finish it tomorrow. It will be released when the first draft of book two is completed.

      I'm not sure how many books the initial story arc of the new series is going to take, quite a few is the way it looks right now (5? 6? More?)
      POI #8 will either be written sometime during this, or afterwards, is what I'm currently thinking. My biggest problem with POI has been starting the next story arc, I'm still struggling with it. Kaiju was something of a 'bridger' book, set in the period between one major arc ending (Cenwyg) and another starting. I was thinking of writing another 'bridger' book, but realized that was a bad idea for the series. I very much want to get #8 out before the end of this year, but there's a lot going on in my life right now, which is why up until now my writing schedule was complete crap. I'm just now getting back into the swing of things.
