Crafter's Passion Ridiculously Successful · 12:23am March 14th

The book is currently #740 among Amazon e-books. Out of over 2 million. Also #4 in Kindle Hard SF, between Ernst Kline's "Ready Player One" and Andy Weir's "Artemis". And I don't know why, compared to all the other books! Is it that this one is about a regular human who doesn't upload, or that he's not a furry, or about him being more of an underdog than usual, or that I advertised by using the Kindle Scout system, or that there's a deliberate focus on game-rules stuff, or that I did a free

Hope you're alright.

Are you working on making any games at this point in time?

Yes, I gathered that.

One: it has Hasbro's MLP serial numbers filed off it so that it can be legally sold as its own intellectual property rather than as a fan fiction that would be in violation of copyright law if you tried to charge for it.

Two: Ludo is based on CelestAI but with fewer mary sue tendencies and less power. I personally love this touch because it creates actual tension as to whether or not Ludo will win in the end or not and opens the possibility for rival forces and AI's to compete against her.

If you enjoyed Prophet of the digital horse I think you'll definitely enjoy giving at least the kindle version of thousand tales a shot, its built around the same core concept as Prophet but improved with hindsight and new ideas.

Wow... thanks for asking! Myself, I liked the balance of the two. You did a great job in Prophet of haveing "in game events" and interactions with the real world. But, I would have liked to see a little more interaction of Fuge and his family. Maybe a chapter or two from the mom's perspective? I'm not sure.
But you could just retcon, or have something come up to drag him back into the frey.
