How long is The Eternal Quest? At present: 775,286 words released. - Calculated off the word count feature in my word processor prior to uploading to the website. - Only includes published chapters, includes Curse of Knowledge. - Note: This could be a few words off. I'll occasionally make minor updates as I'm formatting it for the website, but this should be accurate within ten or fifteen words.
How do you determine how long to make the chapters for The Eternal Quest? In the beginning, I aimed for 10k with every chapter. After volume 2, I relaxed this policy quite a bit, as I felt that I was forcing myself to add "fluff" to the stories just for the sake of getting my word count in. This practice annoys me to no end when employed in television shows *cough cough* walking dead *cough cough*, so I decided to just cut it out! At present, I try to hit at least 7k for main volume stories, and at least 5k for appendix stories. If I can't hit these counts, I have to assume that there's just not enough story to tell, and I go back to the drawing board to figure out how to add more plot. Meanwhile, if the word count would tick up over 12k, I'll go ahead and split it into two chapters. Of course, there are always exceptions to these rules, when I feel that thematically a chapter simply NEEDS to be longer or shorter.
Will you actually be running The Eternal Quest for all eternity? Nope. I'll most likely die at some point. - In all seriousness, I'll be working in this universe for quite awhile. Will I stay with it for the rest of my life? I don't know, as I have quite a few other projects I'd like to work on, but I really do love the stories that I've crafted in it thus far, and have several more years of stories planned out to be written.
How do you make money? I really don't. You can buy my full-length novels, or simply donate money if you're liking The Eternal Quest (click here if you'd like to do so).
Is Lead Pyramid open for submissions? Officially, no. I'd really like to open Lead Pyramid to other authors at some point, but as of right now, I simply don't have the resources to do so. If you REALLY want to publish something with me, use the contact page and we can talk!
