Heya, it’s been a while since I made any update. Well, at least in regard to novel updates. Everything may look fine on the front end, whereas the chapters kept releasing at a constant pace with no interruption, but there were so many dramas going on behind the scene. Okay, maybe drama is a bit “dramatic”, but a lot of things DID happen over the past few months.
First, since Sigma has been removed from the job, I’ve put Nexus up on Demon Sword Maiden, but it might have been a bit too challenging for him as he’s still not quite up there yet in the language department. And you know how it is, with all those Japanese names and terms, it can get quite confusing. After he worked on three chapters of Demon Sword Maiden, I’ve decided that maybe I should put him up on Dragon Princess instead. And had hired a different translator for Demon Sword Maiden.
That translator was a good friend of mine, a verified Chinese translator, and he was also the one who helped develop this site’s Dark Mode. I trusted him, a lot, so I have paid him in advance to provide 15 chapters of Demon Sword Maiden per month. In the same month, however, since he had to pay the bill urgently, he worked for WuxiaWorld to the bone and submitted his work to them, but they said they were unable to pay him until the set date since their money is being managed by a third party.
Therefore, he was honestly cornered so he reluctantly came to me to “borrow” money. He had never betrayed my trust before so I have agreed to give him the money “in advance” for another batch of chapters. I have now effectively paid him for two months worth of Demon Sword Maiden chapters in advance. Both of which I still haven’t received a single chapter of. Not that I’m thinking that he actually ran off with the money, I trust him, and he does have a history of being ill, so it’s not totally out of the question that something must have happened in real life that kept him from reaching back to us. He has already disappeared for a few months, and I’m honestly quite concerned about him.
If not for that, we would already have increased the weekly chapter release from 2 to 4 by last December! But enough of that sob story! This isn’t the time for that, for we have finally found a new translator capable of tackling this hefty project! Please give your warmest regards to Snoring Dragon, the newest translator of Demon Sword Maiden! With the addition of a new translator, and Nexus now working on Dragon Princess, I am now relieved of a project to call my own, which means… it’s time for a new novel soon!
But not so soon! For I am still slightly concerned about leaving this project completely in the hands of Snoring Dragon, thus I will be monitoring him for the next three months to make sure that he is ready. Anyway, Snoring Dragon’s translations will be available from Chapter 131 onward, which will be released on the 4th of March! Take heed! Take heed! From the month of March onward, the weekly release of Demon Sword Maiden will be increased from 2 to 4!
