I figured out how to make PDF's, now I'm just finishing the cover and trying to make it look as good as possible.

-Matt

PS. So far the file is 1.73 MB I believe. Hope that isn't too big for you guys. lol

Ok, I read it. The part at 10:15 AM made me interested.

However, there are some problems.

I mean, it could be great, but....

You are TOO technical......

Examples....

Quote:
A group of renegade soldiers from the Falintil-Forças de Defesa de Timor Leste, or known in English as the Timor Leste Defense Force, had their standard French Lizard pattern camouflage uniforms on for the past 2 years ever since a section of the FDTL had went rogue. Numbering at least around 20-25 men, they were armed with mostly Colt M16A2 rifles. Some of the M16A2s had mounted underbarrel grenade launchers while a small number were armed with Fabrique Nationale Minimi light machine guns, Colt M16A1 and Heckler & Koch HK33 assault rifles. A few of them were relegated to guard duty for the afternoon outside some straw-made huts, which was in one of the many villages abandoned during the 1999 referendum when pro-Indonesian militias and soldiers of the Angkatan Darat or Indonesian Army went on a rampage to prevent East Timor from declaring independence before it did so in 2002.
And...

Quote:
Come on.” Aldeia wore a Shoei-made motorbike helmet. “We’re getting orders for another mission.”
“Where to?” Paul donned his BMW-made motorbike helmet, starting up his F 800 ST.
Aldeia had already started his 2007 BMW F 650 GS motorbike. “The TGS building.”
You are giving so much information that it makes me......very un interested. That first paragraph made me almost lose total interest.

However, the 10:15 AM part made me interested again.

You need to make it less technical and more character and story driven. Can you do that?

-Matt

Also, if anyone else has a completed chapter for a story they'd like to have in the mag. You have a couple days to PM it to me.

Requirements:

Interesting, hooks the reader, story is good. lol

We don't allow promotion of drugs or alchohol. Not that you cant have them, but you cant make them the main part of the story or promote them.

We don't allow ADULT themes or sex.

And language should be PG-13 and even then, shouldn't be excessive.


And remember, it's a LIGHT NOVEL. Keep that in mind.

If you dont send it now, you'll have to wait for the next issue to get published.

Also, were looking for SHOUJO writers and artists.

-Matt

Nothing was edited, lol, except for grammar (as in parts that should have been a certain TENSE, and weren't) and some spelling. So don't be worried, your story is the same. lol

Anyways, act now or you wont be published till the second issue.


ALSO!!!!!!!!!!!

We are looking for a manga artist to create an original manga series that will run in the magazine every 2 months. If your interested, PM me or reply.

-Matt

PS. We have two artists, one whose name is only known by the author, and the other is Molly Quaid. I believe I spelled that right. lol They are both unknowns.

The magazine is almost done and ready to ship out. Were just trying to make the official website look better.

If you run a blog, we are interested in having reviews given. Read more at: www.lightnovel.org

I suggest that you place that blog on the official English LN site that you propped up. It's kinda awkward for the blog to be linked to it and not vice versa.

Thanks.

Wow, so just my luck, my wireless capability's on my laptop kicked out and I have to have it repaired! arg....

I'm on dial-up right now, anyways, the PDF is finished, so I'm going to try to upload it to the net tommarow and hopefully we can get this thing released this weekend.

Why did this have to happen now.......oh well.

-Matt

PS. Wow, we have just been offered the ability to publish this magazine in English, BUT ALSO IN GERMAN! wow...

The leading online LN/MANGA german database website is vaulanteering to translate the magazine if he likes it and thinks german fans would too.

Wow, this would make the magazine INTERNATIONAL. Which I know would make the authors happy.

If anyone runs a website in another language, etc, and wishes to translate each issue for other countrys. Were happy about it.

But do inform us of your translation so that we may share a link to your translation project page.

We ofcourse would love and welcome CHINESE and JAPANESE translations of the mag especially.

Heh. Wish I could do a Tagalog-based translation, but that's too much of my time wasted.

Anime News Network has been alerted to the magazine.

A release date we hope to meet is September 22.
