This is not one of the but the greatest story I have read on Nairaland so far. To be candid, it is mainly the reason why I log into Nairaland these days.
You are blessed, I am inspired by your stories. I pray that God will replenish you with more wisdom and inspiration to reach a greater height and achieve more than your expectations.
Please keep me informed of your stories/novels when they are available on or out of Nairaland.
Thank you.

Sad to see this come to an end. Do well to inform me when you do write another story. Thanks for the ride.

Great work Obed! You're an amazing writer. Your use of word is superb and to create an entire universe? Too notch. Success in your publications, I wish you'd mention me when you do publish. I'll love to buy.

Gratitude obehid for this masterpiece, I would love to read/buy all the former books in this series, this one has given me an unsatisfiable hunger for your works, even after re-reading this story trice I still thirst for more

“It must die, all praise be to the founder, Chuspecip.” — More like all praise be to the founder. Let us kill one of its lifeforms, its last brio, and the last of its line. We are doing nothing wrong, just following its commandments.
I am sure if they had succeeded, and Chuspecip came back. He would have found a way to—even if they had died—bring them back to life and kill them over and over again.

Now that I am reading it again from the beginning with hindsight, I can not only see the hand of Chuspecip in Nebud's life from the beginning, including the time it took that impʼs eye. I can also the genius of this great piece, how everything seem to align itself perfectly. It is genius. And wasn't it all a journey from the beginning to the end, the twist and turns. Leaving one to guess at the author's direction of the story.

Gratitude, Obehid.

Thank you all for the comments and the continuing interest, I took some time off NL, probably still taking some time off, lol. I will definitely let everyone know (probably through this thread or another one possibly opened in the future with everyone who commented here tagged in it) when the next books are available and how to get them. I'm still deciding what to do about reckoning/how to write that. NL has spoiled me a little, I've kind of gotten used to getting feedback as I write, and I'm not yet willing to give that up, so I might reach out to a few people to read reckoning with me as I write it...don't know yet where/how that'll be done. I'm still working on finishing the editing for Awakening, once that's done I'll share the link to wherever I publish it! Thanks again everyone!!!

Quick questions for one of my favourite author.
@Georgina,
Do you use nairaland for other things except posting your amazing stories?

You dedicated your first book to The Ones Who Walk Alone. Who are they? Do you consider yourself one of them?

Bye for now.
Re: The Marked: In The Spectral Existence (A Stand-alone Fantasy Fiction Novella) by tunjilomo(m): 6:30pm On Jul 06
Is it possible to teleport between two different ports using quicksand?

Thanks for that 'one of my favourite authors', you've made my head swell. I just use Nairaland for posting my stories yes. Lol, that's actually an interesting question about the dedication. So, the dedication for Crimson Night is actually geared towards Osezele (the protagonist). She's an introvert who doesn't speak much and doesn't have many friends, so in that sense she walks alone. But in general, when I think about people who walk alone, I'm thinking about people who are misunderstood, awkward, basically loners and misfits and yes, I do consider myself to be one of those who walk alone in that I am very much a loner and a misfit grin

tunjilomo:

No, not at all. But, as we can tell later,from after Nebud siphoned Chuspecip's route, it is possible to use route to travel between ports, but it takes time to learn

Wow! This means you are pretty much an introvert?
Re: The Marked: In The Spectral Existence (A Stand-alone Fantasy Fiction Novella) by tunjilomo(m): 8:57am On Jul 10
I see two discrepancies you will have to take care of when revamping this book then, in resspect to that teleportation thing then.
One on page seventeen — when Calami teleported Monica to Musa. (Not very sure of this one.)
And when Calam and young Cala teleported from the Isle of brio to Lahooni.

There is also this one on page 4, when Musa said he buried Calam and Cala in the royal Okun.

Yup, @Ultimategeneral I am very much an introvert

Ooooh, thanks so much for pointing these out! I'll have to make sure I go over these in the editing

@cassbeat I am indeed back and with a new story too, though this one is quite different from anything else I've written so...

@movmentish no disrespect, but as tomboyish as I am, I have to turn down the bro knighthood in favor of my sis brigade sword and shield, lol

Okay, so I'm in the process of publishing awakening, and the last thing I need is an amazing book cover design. I'm going through different places to get different designers working on this, but I also wanted to open it up to you guys. I don't know if anyone on here is a graphic designer, but if you are and you're interested in working on this, please reach out with previous work done. If you're a good fit, we can put our heads together and come up with something great!

Ps. This is a paying gig

Thanks!
