Chapter 9 can be found HERE.

In this chapter: More backstorydump – a bit of insight into what kind of person Ely is, as well. Some of this is repeated information, but I tried to intersperse new details amidst the narration of the bits I’ve already revealed, to keep it fresh. Hopefully it worked.

On a separate note, a bit of an exciting reveal today. Those of you who were following me from Lily Ex Machina might recall that I commissioned official character art, and that I did so rather late in the novel’s lifespan. I’m glad to announce that the artist I had engaged to do those artworks previously – alfiansyah – has agreed to work with me once again on Seeking Elysium! I decided to get a bit of a head start this time round, and therefore, I bring you today the first piece of official character art for Seeking Elysium: Rosalind!

Her dress is the one she wears as a barmaid – it’s easy to move in, comfortable to wear, and bares just the right amount of skin to encourage her patrons to buy that extra pint, without crossing that line into being raunchy. I’m really happy with how this turned out~

When I get the character page up, I’ll be including a thumbnail portrait of her – but that might be a while from now. Elysium will also, naturally, be receiving some art of her own, but before that, there’s another character who’ll get drawn. Who is it? That’s a secret, for now 😛

Well then, that’s all I have for this post. As always, if you enjoy my work (and think I should commission more awesome official art like the one above), do consider supporting me on Patreon!
