165 Author“s Note and Thank you
Who would have thought that I could write two whole books between March and October of the same year? Usually I'm lucky to write 1 in that time...
Of course, I know exactly why I can write this much, and of course it's because of you guys!

Thank you so much for your support for this second volume, it has meant quite a lot to me and I hope it will continue into the future considering the vast and diverse world I'm only on the verge of creating.

And of course, a special shout-out to those who have posted a review. While I can see that I certainly can't impress everyone, I'm grateful for the kind words and recommendations.
*Let's out a breath*
So...who's interested in hearing about Vol.3? Probs the only reason why you're reading this chapter huh?
Okay, enough with the suspense...
No really, I'll tell you.
So I'm taking a break until the end of October for various reasons.
First and foremost, I'm finishing my degree and applying for jobs for next year so kinda busy with that.
Second, I gotta go back and edit this second volume, possibly change a few things too but it'll be the same general structure for those who can't be bothered going back to read it again. As always edited chapters indicated by a * in the title.
Third, I gotta start writing the third volume, titled 'The Man and The Monster'. Can't tell you much cause it'll give too much away, but there will be a lot of the characters we've met this second volume getting their own story lines. I'll let you guys guess who.
And finally, I'm setting up a P*a*t*r*e*o*n account. Primarily, this account will be used to finance my writing. I would love to be able to send the first volume off to a publisher and get recognition straight away, but that just ain't happening.
"Well why don't you self-publish?" you may ask
Self-publishing to me is like a last resort if no one else wants to publish my book, but regardless of which route I take I still need to get my books professionally edited. Doing it myself or getting friends or family has been how I've been doing it so far, but let's face it, neither me or any of them are professionally trained to spot things that are wrong with my book or give me suggestions on how to fix it. And, like most things, editing costs money...a shit tonne of money that I don't have, hence the P*a*t*r*e*o*n Account.
I'll obviously give more information later (when I post a teaser for the third volume), but essentially Patrons will have access to Q&As with me or with the characters (Will be taking questions from my discord server ONLY), they'll see short stories from side characters, or sometimes main characters, and possibly some extra content about the wider world of Chaos.
Obviously, if you don't want to become a Patron, that's cool too, no hard feelings. You won't miss out on anything from the main story line as all the incidents within the short stories will be at least mentioned in the novels, but if you are interested I'd really appreciate it and you'll be able to see more updates on my discord server so get that link on the title page of this novel.
Okay, I think that's it...for now anyway.
