It has been a long and frustrating journey to get this far. I’ve hit ever delay in the book. But, the book has been edited, the cover art is in progress, and the first few chapters just went live on patreon. In a few days, they will be available for free over on Royal Road with a fun temporary cover. I can tell you how excited I am to get this going.
Although, you probably want to know what this book is about, don’t you. Well, I suppose I can answer that one.
Book one of the Pixel Dust series, titled PARTY HARD, is a GameLIT story with some light LitRPG elements. My goal for the book was to capture the feeling of playing video games with your bros. The jokes. The friendships. The random moments of epic badassery. All of it. The best moments in gaming, are the ones you share with your bros, and in my case also my wife. Anyways, here’s the blurb.
The average person loses a third of their life to sleep, or at least they did before the Somno entertainment system hit the market. Now, instead of wasting time in bed like a sucker, players enter Noctem, a breathtaking world of adventure and magic where they can live out their fantasies, challenge themselves, or just kick back and enjoy some extra time. For most users, it was a dream come true.
For players like MaxDamage24 and his sidekick Kirabell, it will become something else.
When one of the game’s creators is fired over “creative differences,” he sets into motion a plan to take everything away. To stop it, Max and Kira will have to gather their friends and embark on a quest that will push them to their limits. They’ll face impossible bosses, creepy dungeons, and their own nightmares, all while doing their best not to get killed. The only question is, will they be the same afterward?
One thing’s for sure – if they want to survive, they’re gonna have to Party Hard.
