This is a blog post. I blog now, apparently.
Tomorrow I’m going to launch my first web serial: Uhh, Reincarnation Goddess? You Forgot to Give Me the System – a LitRPG isekai progression fantasy story that draws heavily on my love for the Cradle series and my desire to see more “rational fiction” that doesn’t ultimately end in disappointment.
If you follow the kinds of web fiction that have been trendy for the last few years, this story’s title should tell you everything you need to know about the premise: it’s about someone who dies on Earth, but is reincarnated into a new world in which everyone has access to that world’s “System” (basically, magic system). Everyone except the main character, because the Reincarnation Goddess forgot to give her access to the System.
I don’t know if this story (which I’ve been abbreviating as URGY for short, because URGYFtGMtS is kind of hard to pronounce) is going to be any level of successful or popular. I don’t exactly have an authorial readership right now, and I dislike doing most of the “marketing”-type things that might help me gain more of a readership. If URGY is going to be successful, it’s mainly going to be due to word of mouth and old readers sharing it with people who become new readers.
That’s really all I have to say about it, until I launch the dang thing for real tomorrow. If you like the idea of a story where the weakest person in a world full of superhumans has to use their wits to survive, or if you liked the concept of HPMOR but not the execution (Harry should have done more experimenting on the nature of magic! Not just assumed all his epiphanies were immediately correct!!), you should probably give URGY a chance.
