Progress on Rufus in Terralupis - character profiles

As it is, I've decided to make character profiles for everyone in Rufus in Terralupis. This is so that the final draft update for chapter 3 has more detailed characters than there is now. This will help me figure out the ending, as the third book will begin sometime after the upcoming battle. If there is a forth  it will be to wrap up where I'm at, when I get to the last word for the next update. So far I've got three finished. With 20 or so more plus characters that have effected the characters in the story that haven't been mentioned yet, like the previous owner of Jim the Derkal for an example.

Progress on Rufus in Terralupis Rough Draft update 1

I have finished the Rough draft for Chapter 2 in Rufus in Teralupis, and have started the outline for Chapter 3. This is a preview of what the book will soon look like :
Dogs and the Trio are transported to Teralupis, and find Rufus knocked out while the dogs are trapped. We go back in time before everything went bad for Rufus, he  gains new company, goes to save family and princess, they are only able to save a Rufus's brother. They fly away and get chased and attacked, Rufus gets knocked off his ride and falls to his doom. Almost killed wakes up finding  the trio in front of him, tells the story of what happen to him. While doing this the only dog that managed not to be captured interrupts Rufus and after he finishes his story, they go to free the dogs
This is just a summary of what I have planned so for what will be in the updated story.
For Chapter 3, what I got so far is after the group saves the other dogs and everyone at the hairless one's death camp. Now at 200 strong they go back to Farmadile after armoring up

Progress on Rufus in Terralupis Rough Draft

I've been working on Rufus in Terralupis and now I'm almost finished with chapter 2. Once I do this, then the next thing that will happen is that chapter 1 will have an update to go with what I now have, to the word doc for this e-book and that will go onto wattpad and goodreads.  Chapter 3 will come along with a possibility for a 4th chapter, itf needs be for a better ending than The Adventures of Molly as the intro of book two should have been part the ending in that book. Up until that point the longest thing I've ever written was an essay. Also when I finish the A.o.M art video, the thing next  is adding more charters to the cover. and a piece of cover art for Reviews by Justyn my latest online project. After that Art wise will come from my Pinterest Board : Things that inspire me.
About 43% finished

Camp Fife 2013

I went to Camp Fife scout camp from July 8-13
July 8
I had a fun time at camp. To start off, I enjoy camping out in the woods because I come from Hermiston, OR where it's desert unlike Camp Fife. I saw a bird nest and a chipmunk. They ran out of bacon for seconds :( at breakfast. I'm taking the Astronomy, Emergency Prep, Orienteering and Weather Merit Bage classes.
The Camp fire was cool! All the skits took place in Baconlandia my favorite parts were the two "fat" guys that made nursery rhymes blow up, the Quack Magican, and the "if I wasn't a camper" song.
July 9
For Lunch the Mac and cheese with ham was really good. In the Weather Merit Bage class we made weather vanes. I finally saw a swallowtail butterfly
I went to the trading post, got some stuff to help me in the Astronomy Merit Bage. Dinner was O.K., one of my favorite things about camp Fife is Jello with whipped cream.  
Boulder Cave

the water fall
July 10
Today has been fun !For adventure day I got to bend metal.We got to go to Boulder Cave, while  there I saw a chipmunk and a squirrel. The water fall is cool ! I love wildlife. Swallowtail butterflies seem to be common here at Camp Fife. Everyone had a fun time around the fire, at the astronomy outing was great. Had to draw the big dipper and look for constellations. I finished the outline of my 2nd chapter.
Bumping Lake

  July 11

This Morning there was a Polar bear plunge at 
Bumping Lake. So far the pool has been colder than the lake water. Seconds on bacon is great :) I did a lot of drawing today. Cloudy nights don't work so well for Binoculars. Also there was an extreme version of  hide and go seek called staff hunt. All the scouts went to find the staff and whoever caught one would gain their troop points or lose points.
 July 12
I finished two of my Merit Bages, we had fun at the camp wide games, at the campfire my troop did a skit where zombies come to eat some people the 1st person get eaten. The zombies go to the 2nd person, tells them he has swag. So the zombies didn't eat him because he was brainless. It was also my birthday today.

We came back from scout camp on the 13th.

The A.o.M. with R.i.T Extras

I have uploaded a special update to The Adventures of Molly on Smashwords. 

It now has a  Backstory, sample from Rufus in Teralupis, and more. I will add the Backstory to Wattpad, and a Goodreads version of this story. The only way to update a book on Goodreads is to delete it and replace it or put it on a different version of that book.  As I found some tracking problems on Microsoft word that have messed up my book really bad along with style problems. So I fixed those problems.

Sketch for book 2 cover progress, and finished drawing

I finally  finished the drawing :
and the what the cover for book 2 - Rufus in teralupis will look similar to 
Why this won't be the cover is because I'm thinking of  drawing a background to this, and Rufus has lines from the paper I used to draw him on.
For where to find me online in my books I think to save time updating books and videos I will make a google document that will have links to all the places I can be found on the web an example is this video: 

As with videos on YouTube I will add the last video I made, and my playlist of videos

Drawing update 4, and Sketch ideas for book 2 cover

All I have left for this drawing is the sand, bushes and border
This is what the cover of my next book looks like at the moment, some things need to be fixed, for an example, the eyes and the sword.

 And ideas for what I'm putting on the cover

These are just some of the sketches off the paper they come from, comment about which one looks best, because the one that looks best will appear on the cover. If no one comments, then I will add what I decide to add to my cover of my 2nd book.

Fixed the A.o.M.

The only thing left to fix on The Adventures of Molly (A.o.M) was that the cover was too small, and so that was the last problem I had with  the A.o.M. Now it's 2100x3000.

Ideas for second book

As it was around time for me to go to bed, I was unable to start on my drawing. I will start on it tomorrow morning. While on the way, and back of the camping trip, I came up with  Ideas for my second book like the name of it for an example, Rufus of Teralupis. It will start right before the spot where The Adventures of Molly ended.

Another Template

I decided to change the template, because the last template was annoying, for the most part because it never showed all the widgets and badges I have for this blog. If a person who reads this blog  Justyn the Author doesn't comment that they read this I will be convinced that AI robots are the only things that view this blog. On the other hand, I was unable to work on that drawing because I got to go on a camping trip, I have a lot of homework to do for the weekend because I'm a Junior in high school. I will eather post it before I go to sleep or tomorrow sometime.

Today I joined  goodreads you can find my Goodreads author profile here.

I also linked this blog to my author profile page. Ever since I added my progress, of my drawing I'm working on it seems that I get about 100 views per day. What I find interesting is that I have been on blogger for 2 months and no one has ever commented on any of my blogs. So if you can please comment that you have read this, and if there is anything that could make this blog better.
