After a month of mind numbing work I have decided that work on the Novel had to end… What? Oh! It’s finished. I just did not want to push it any further, and instead leave room, and time, to work on the second part, when I could eventually get to it. You see, the Battle of Oakenfall was meant to speak about a particular event in the Armello Civil War, and I successfully did that. What I wanted to leave all of you dear readers with is a sense of “Oh, what will happen next?”. I have ideas, lots of ideas, but aside from hobby writing I need to do some work that actually brings in a buck, so that I can then continue my “writing for pleasure”.
In any case, here is the full, free PDF of the Battle of Oakenfall. It might not be the longest (or best formatted or edited) book out there but it’s my own. The final word count is 21,700 words, so not at all shabby for a first timer, eh?
The Full Novel (in PDF)
Another day, another chapter. We are going into more action, and taking a step closer toward the battle itself. Still a few long chapters to go, still a lot of intrigue to go over.
File of course in PDF format (would not have it any other way).
Battle of Oakenfall Novel – Chapter 3
Stay and enjoy!
While NaNoWriMo continues and I slowly progress through the novel (it will be tough as nails to get it all done by the end of the month) I wanted to share what I have prepared, to a greater or lesser extent, and that is the first two chapters of the novel.
While it’s just a small chunk of the whole novel, and we still have a way to go I think it’s a nice stopping point to introduce any and all those curious what this is all about.
So, if you wish to read the Novel in its current state (the first two chapters of it) follow the link below to the PDF and be free to download and print it as you see fit. Apologies for any mistakes in the text but I am not a great editor or even a spellchecker. I can at least hope it is readable.
Disclaimer(s): This novel will not be sold for any sum of money, it will be available for free download from this site. At the same time pleasure assume that the characters in the novel, how they are presented and how they act is not part of Armello canon/lore. It’s a work of fan-fiction, and as such I take some liberties in presenting the world in my own way (though hopefully close to the original).
Enjoy and expect more!
P.S. You can also see the tapestry of the Battle of Oakenfall here.
A month of hard work and the Tapestry of the Battle of Oakenfall is finally FINISHED!
Oh, you hoped to see it here? Not so quickly!
Click here to go to the Battle of Oakenfall page, where you will get to see the final tapestry, poem and some more background information on the battle.
Or… click here to find out how the Tapestry was created, with a lot of sketches and drafts to keep you entertained.
Also, all of this would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of Travis Fam. Look at his Deviantart account, look at this work, and order commissions from him. I can be a starving writer but we cannot let the artists starve!
