Re: Questions regarding your first VN ever

1. Mafiosi 1 took about a year or so to write. 2. Solo, although my friend did the title poster for it, which is pretty kick-ass. All resources and music were taken from elsewhere, something I hope to change in the near future. 3. 64k words. The sequel was a tad over 90k and was completed in the sam...

Re: How is your project going (or not going)?

5 chapters out of 24 completed for Mafiosi 3. I'm really looking forward to ending the first trilogy, and excited because this is the story I've really wanted to tell since its inception. It's also looking to be the longest entry so far, and slated to be twice the length of the first novel (aiming f...

Re: Writing Likeable Murderers?

I love this topic! My entire VN series is trying to accomplish exactly this. All of my characters do have the sympathetic back stories that some of you aren't so enthused about, but you live through those stories with each installment (Mafiosi 1 features the cast as children, Mafiosi 2 as teens, Maf...

Re: Episodic Releases - Pros and Cons

I did something "kinda" similar with my Mafiosi novels. Each novel is 24 chapters long, and I have a new release of it posted every 6 chapters (each of which is told by a different character). I don't have them re-tread previously told events though, it's all sequentially told. Each sequel is an act...

Re: MAFIOSI 2 - [Sequel] [Thriller] (Book 1/4 complete)

Thanks for reading! And I apologize for the lengthy wait, went through a job change and my band recorded an EP, so it's been a hectic few months. I'll try to get the next release out sooner :)

Re: MAFIOSI [Crime] [Thriller] (All 24 chapters NOW COMPLETE

Thanks so much for the feedback! I'm hard at work on the sequel right now, which is shaping up to be twice as long.
The sprite problem will be a little bit better in it since they're older/taller, aside from Maya. I'll try and find ways to improve it further for the third entry.
